Hello + happy Tuesday to you!
It’s no secret that I’m in love with gold… and paired with emerald green, it’s such a lovely combo! If you are wanting to make a statement with your colors, emerald + gold would be perfect for a late winter wedding, a New Year’s Eve wedding, or a St. Patrick’s Day wedding.
Some of my favorite emerald + gold wedding images from around the web (see the credits below):

What do you think? Would you use these colors in your wedding (or party!?)
Have a great Tuesday!
Good morning, lovely friends. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Can you believe I just googled “various greetings” to get ideas for other ways to begin my blog posts…? Haha. I am getting a little tired of good morning, happy monday, etc. Unfortunately “salutations” doesn’t quite have the same ring to it so I think we will just stick with what we know for now. ;)
Today I wanted to share some photos from a gorgeous styled shoot that features the new 2015 line of vintage inspired bridal jewelry by Cloe Noel Designs. When owner Kim Ortis sent these photos to me, I instantly fell in love with her chic and glamorous bridal accessories!
Here is a bit more about the brand:
“Cloe Noel Designs is a glamorous vintage-inspired bridal accessory brand founded by designer Kim Ortiz.

I am obsessed with the romantic and vintage feel that photographer La Candella Weddings
captured in these photos. So lovely! Enjoy the photos and make sure to check out Cloe Noel Designs

So dreamy, so feminine, so romantic… thank you to Kim for sharing these gorgeous photos with us! Don’t forget to check out Cloe Noel Designs for all of your bridal accessory needs.

Today’s color palette was inspired by a little project I am currently working on with a fabulous local wedding photographer. I just love the glitzy, glam feel of the gold sequins paired with the stark white and the contrasting navy. It’s just perfection for a winter wedding!

Have a wonderful Tuesday! Can you believe it’s almost Thanksgiving!?
Way back in November of 2010 I created a post called 10 DIY Winter Wedding Favors, which to this day is still one of my most popular posts and gets a decent amount of traffic. So I figured, now that it is *ahem* 4 years later, we are well overdue for a new roundup of wedding favors! This time the focus is unique favors that you might not see at every (or any) wedding you attend this winter.
I am all about favors that guests will genuinely enjoy and actually use, not kitschy ones that will end up in the trash. These winter wedding favors will certainly make an impact on your guests and will give them a wonderful keepsake from your wedding that they will be able to enjoy for months, or even years to come.
Read on to see some of the ways that you can really “wow” your wedding guests this winter!
1. Craft them a special gift that will leave them feeling cozy all winter long:
These tea cup candles are adorable and also super easy to make. I’ve made them as Christmas gifts before and they were a huge hit. Elizabeth Ann Designs has a great tutorial for these. I also think it would be super fun to collect all of the unique, vintage tea cups.
If you’re akin to sewing (or have a friend or family member who is willing to help), these DIY hand warmers are a super fun + creative way to say thank you to your guests. Check out the tutorial here.
2. Give them a tasty treat in a keepsake mug:
Whether it’s a hot chocolate kit in a mug adorned with a knitted coffee cozy, or a personalized mug filled with chocolates, your guests will surely appreciate this tasty gesture. These also double as fabulous escort or place cards.
3. Keep them warm all winter long:
Gloves in your wedding colors are a unique and affordable option — I’ve seen these on sale at Target for $1/each around the holidays! Or what about a custom monogrammed fleece blanket to show guests your appreciation? You really can’t go wrong with either.
4. Help them decorate for the holidays:
If your wedding is taking place around Christmas, I love the idea of giving personalized ornaments to your guests. You could either double them up as escort cards and have the guests names on them or attached with a tag, or use your own monogram or names to customize them.
For a more rustic wedding, you could send your guests home with their own tiny Christmas tree (aka sapling) to remember your wedding by. These birch etched snowflake ornaments are a fantastic option as well! See the full tutorial here.
Lastly, I am just in love with these charming little wreaths that could be displayed in your guest’s homes after the wedding. See the tutorial for the berry wreaths here and the greenery wreaths here.
If you’re planning a winter wedding, what favor are you planning to send your guests home with? I’d love to hear some other ideas!
Have a fantastic Thursday!
