Green Colorful Wedding in Provincetown

Hi all! We have another one of our fun offbeat weddings to share! This wedding took place on the cape in Provincetown and it was a fun one to do. The couple rented a beach house and invited about 60 people for an intimate offbeat affair.

What they wanted:

Something colorful and whimsical that included purple, green and blue.
Centerpieces that did not include real flowers to facilitate their goal to have a green wedding.
Chinese lanterns to be included in the decor.
Jars to be used as candle holders.
An outdoor ceremony
An intimate dinner

What we did to give them what they wanted!

We created centerpieces that were both floral and environmentally friendly by using pieces of fabric that had been given to them by one of the bride's mothers as napkins. The idea was that they would use them as napkins for the wedding and she would then use them to make a quilt for the couple after they were married! What a great idea! We asked the mum to provide any left over pieces of fabric and used them to make their centerpieces and the arbors for their ceremony! They gave such character to the whole feel of the wedding. After the wedding, we took them apart and sent them to the couple to have Mum add them to the quilt! They will forever have this as a souvenir of their wedding day! Very cool!

We used their desired colors in addition to ones we thought would work best with them and designed a very colorful and whimsical reception setup for them.
Instead of clear jars as candle holders we opted to go with colored ones to keep the whimsy and color theme going. They were thrilled with the burst of unexpected color they provided along the aisle they both walked down as well as at the tables as part of the centerpieces.

Last but not least, we used a good number of chinese lanterns in a mix of colors in the reception room to create the colorful ambiance they wanted.

Everything we used was colorful and fun and in keeping with their green, whimsical but colorful and intimate theme!
Check out our website for more pictures and as always, let us know your thoughts! We like hearing them and they help us do better!

Colorful Wedding at the Museum

It has been a while since I blogged as you may notice. It has been a busy season for us and we just now got finished with it, so I am so glad to be back and to share how things have been going. I am going to try to be honest about the good, the bad and the ugly, so be sure to tune in and to share your thoughts as they are always helpful. Apart from that though, I am so excited to share with you some of the fun weddings we worked on this season!

As you may or may not know we primarily work with offbeat couples who want their offbeat styles and personalities to be conveyed in their wedding style. But that said, we also get some requests from clients whose main request is a colorful wedding but still in keeping with tradition. If we determine that we are a good fit, we are usually happy to oblige.

The wedding I am sharing with you is such a wedding. The clients wanted a bit of a mix of everything ranging from modern to traditional to a little bit offbeat. We found a location that was all of those things in it's own way and they loved it! A well hidden jewel called The Fuller Craft Museum - a contemporary museum that we thought suited their style!

The couple was working within a particular budget so we had to give them something colorful that didn't stray too far from traditional lines and still keep it simple. In lieu of a formal sit down dinner, the couple opted for a cocktail reception in which guests were served heavy hors d'oeuvres for dinner. We set up the space with an emphasis on cocktail and casual seating with seats both inside and outside. A few high top tables mixed with a few big rounds for the guests who preferred to sit traditional style (mostly the older guests) and a lounge area for those who wanted to relax even more in the midst of the festivities! To keep costs down the heavy hors d'oeuvres were served buffet style so guests helped themselves to what they wanted. This not only eliminated the need for servers to pass food around but also kept things light and casual as well as interactive!

Here are a few of my favorites from the wedding since they can't all go on our website. For more pictures of the same event be sure to check our website in the next couple of weeks as they will have been put up by then. In the meantime, don't hesitate to share your thoughts and to let me know what you think! Glad to be back.
Cheers everyone!

Congratulations to Prince William and Kate!

It is not everyday that we get to witness a historical event such as the one many of us witnessed today! Prince William of Wales married his longtime love Kate Middleton! While that is amazing in itself since we know that historically tradition has not prioritized love in Royal weddings, it is even more amazing that Kate is what is known as a commoner since she does not hail from a Royal blood line!
So from all of us to you Prince William and Princess Kate, we wish you so much joy, love and happiness! Way to go Prince William for following your heart and to Kate for being patient and trusting that love always wins! Cheers to the Prince and the Princess!

Offbeat junkyard inspired wedding idea!

While going through our photoshoot pictures, I came across these which happen to be fun favorites of mine! I love the idea of junkyard inspired weddings mostly because they have so much character, texture, depth and frankly way too many surprising beauties! There is no telling what you will find in a junkyard when you go hunting in one of them and that makes for fun experiences. These pictures are reminiscent of a junkyard feel but prettier and more well organized as well as artistic!
Looking for a way to decorate your wedding in a unique way, consider the inspiration in  a junkyard or a location that will give you the feel and the beauty all rolled up in one! The results are endless!
I dare you to satisfy your curiosity or better yet the curiosity of your guests! I for one would love to throw such a wedding! Happy hunting!

Fun wedding gowns for the bride on a budget! Something for everyone!

I haven't blogged in a while so I thought I would do a fun gown entry today! I am always looking for wedding gowns that have character in pretty much every price range. I found some I thought were worth sharing so I thought I would pass them along
These are from various places and I am happy to share where to look for them if you are interested so drop me a line if you have any questions on where to find them.

Most important thing to keep in mind is that they are in various price ranges and I would like to share them according to price so you can see what you like and what might work for you.
It is no secret that I am a huge fan of color, but I thought these were great stylistically and if I was looking for a white gown that had character in it's design but was on a budget, I would consider any of these. Remember Your dress is only a way to express yourself and there are so many things you can express about yourself, so don't let your budget or options limit you. This first set is from White house Black market and they are all below $600.00 so for the bride looking to keep to a small budget or any budget really, they are a great option. 

The next set of dresses are from Edressme which is another great resource for great dresses at really good price points. They are perfect for the bride who wants character and a great deal! The majority of these dresses come in at a price point of less than $500.00 and in fact only one of them comes in at $1500. All the rest are at a lower price point than that, below $1000. So take a look and be inspired to find something that not only fits your style but your budget as well. Who says you can only have it your way by breaking the bank? Of course I included color options for the bride after my own heart! Edressme has a whole wedding section as well as one for bride's maids. If you want even more options, a great section to look at is their evening gown section. Don't underestimate the glamor and style that you can find in what was made to be a funky evening gown. While it might be made for one purpose, you can use it for another. Don't let yourself get limited by anyone else's idea of what the dress should be, think about what you see and what it represents to you and you now have a myriad of options from which to pull your unique wedding gown!



$298.00 on sale for $238.00

 Any of these gowns would make gorgeous wedding gowns for a funky and offbeat bride who wants a unique look. All you need to add are the right accessories and you are ready to say forever! Enjoy!
