Thursday Things We Love: Monograms

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved monograms. I remember my late grandmother always having items monogrammed. Sweaters, oxford shirts and even beach towels. I loved the curve of the letters, or the straight rigid formality. Either way it was classy and when I got my first book bag with my initials monogrammed I couldn’t of been happier.

Now, more than ever a preppy resurgence has occurred. From plates, to clothes, iPhone cases, sunglasses, and key rings – monograms are everywhere. So naturally, I started thinking about how this would flow into wedding design.Below are some fun designs I found which caught my eye. There are so many ways to easily incorporate two names or a new last name into a wedding I think it’s something you should keep in mind!

Thursday Things We Love: Combining Seasons

September 6th, 2012
By Emily

Early September is a fun month. Summer is still here. Blasting us with warm days and beautiful sun. Yet, nipping at it’s heels is Fall. With cooler nights and tree’s slightly changing colors. It’s hard to decide in a time like this to design a wedding completely devoted to the warm months of summer or the cool crisp season that is fall. It may be an easy decision for couples marring in places where the seasons do not change. But, for the rest of us, or couples that want to give a slight summer, fall feel no matter where they are it can be a challenge.

I started thinking about the colors and what kind of slight combinations one could do. You want to produce in the end a kind of perfect combo of colors that can transition. It was funny how most of the time I found I was looking at flower arrangements.  Flowers are designed, just like any wedding location. There is something though about how flowers come together in an organic way to give the best starting off point.
