Matching Monochromatic Bouquets

This is your sign to have fun with your wedding fashion and decor! Gone are the days of one-dress-fits-all bridal parties. We recommend a colorful, individualized palette for your wedding party, and to complete the look, a matching monochromatic bouquet for each member of your ‘I Do’ Crew. This will make a bold statement and add creativity to your wedding design.

Add a personal touch to your reception tablescape with custom plates instead of place cards. How cute are these ceramic plates with hand-painted guest names? They make great guest favors for intimate celebrations.

Wedding Guest Games

Why not incorporate your favorite hobby into your wedding celebration? Spice up the festivities with wedding reception games and activities to infuse some lively, interactive fun and a touch of friendly competition. We can’t get enough of this large-scale crossword puzzle for a cocktail hour icebreaker or these personalized playing cards featuring custom illustrations for guests who prefer a quieter activity.

Quirky Cakes

Who says your wedding cake has to be simple or plain? Add a touch of personality to your confection with a flowing and sweeping buttercream ribbon or opt for a charming and whimsical dessert dotted with daisies. Whatever your preference, make sure your wedding cake is a reflection of your personal style and taste.

Fabric Wedding Signage

Level up your wedding signage with flowing fabrics and handcrafted calligraphy or typography. We love the use of linen to add soft texture and natural romance to your menus. A long cloth banner makes a simple but elegant statement while a handpainted welcome sign is the perfect personalized touch for an abundant brunch setup.

Fuzzy Florals

You can add interest and texture to your wedding design with florals. We adore these arrangements featuring fuzzy, wispy textures. They create a whimsical and ethereal feel.

Bezel Engagement Rings

Engagement ring shopping? Consider a modern and sleek bezel engagement ring. Bezel settings encircle the center stone without the use of prongs. We think they are a striking choice for a timelessly chic bride.

Something Blue

Incorporating the color blue in weddings has been a common tradition due to its symbolic representation of love and faithfulness. We love the idea of including the tradition in your bridal look, whether it be a pretty blue nail design or pops of blue in your bridal bouquet. Another way to make a statement with your ‘something blue’ is with a bold and cloud-like floral installation.
