modern floral design inspiration

Although the designs by Raf Simons were the reason for the show, of course, and they were glorious and ladylike, I can’t stop staring at the flowers designed by Mark Colle, an Anthwerp-based florist, for the Fall 2012 Jil Sander collection. Encased in lucite boxes, Colle’s arrangements feel like modern day Dutch still lifes. Couldn’t you imagine these on display at a museum wedding?

chevron wedding inspiration

Hello! Brittany here again with my second post on the merriment blog! Chevron is such a fun and popular print these days, in fashion, in decorating, and of course in weddings. It’s one of our favorite patterns too — a certain someone I know may use it for her baby shower! It’s the perfect accent for a classic and preppy wedding or for a fete that’s a bit non-traditional too.

"preppy modern wedding program"

A friend illustrated these darling programs for Katie, and included her pug, Alfred, of course! I love that nearly every bride is united by the story of a last minute trip to Kinko’s in the days (or the night, in Katie’s case) before the wedding day. Katie had these printed at Kinko’s, and her friends tied each one with a different color of ribbon over mimosas the morning of her wedding.*

*Planner warning: Katie just had 25 programs. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time — hand tying programs can take quite a bit of time. : )

preppy meets moroccan

moroccan preppy wedding

I’m dreaming of an event that’s a little bit preppy and a little bit Moroccan. It all started when I saw that seahorse motif in Mr. Boddington’s studio several weeks ago. I’d love to pair it with a blue ikat pattern.
