Wedding Stationary Timeline

Timeline for Invitation

Found on Pinterest and thought this was great.


I found this timeline on Pintest and thought this is extremely helpful for couples.  Invitations are common but save the dates is a relatively newer trend.  These are formal announcements to people that you will be inviting to you wedding and reception of the date and location of your. By location we mean city and state. Save the Dates are great if you are having a destination wedding, getting married in a busy travel season or have a lot of guest from out of town.  

You can use an engagement shoot as a chance to get comfortable with your photographer and have a picture for your save the date.  If you are getting married in the winter and it is currently summer don’t worry about trying to make it look as if you are dressed for winter. Enjoy and have fun.

Spring, Really?

Alternative Location: Plan B

Alternative Location

Well the calendar says it is spring but it really hasn’t felt like it in Washington, DC. With this in mind, I have been thinking about brides and grooms who want to have their wedding outdoors. Nature is wonderful and can be breathtaking however we still don’t have control over it.

So what is the purpose of this rant have a “Plan B”, alternative location. I know this is unpopular but Mother Nature has her own mind. If you prepare yourself your day will be perfect for you and your vendors.

Happy Planning!

Spring Time

Spring time is almost here.  For me, that means there are some wonderful blooms to choose from.

  • Alliums
  • Hyacinth
  • Tulips
  • Daffodils
  • Daisies
  • Peonies
  • Lillacs

Some of these blooms are highly fragrant. So if you are making an arrangement keep that in mind.  Other than that enjoy the spring.



Inspiration from the Oscars

 Adam Levine’s wife, Behati Prinsloo, gown made the color of the year, Marsala, come to life. This dress was absolutely stunning. The colors were also inspiration for this table.



For those that love this color combination, the table can be used for a romantic night out or at your wedding reception.




Don’t  be afraid of color; after all what would life be like without it!

Color of the Year

Have you chosen your colors????

Well this years Pantone’s color of the year is Marsala.


Pantone describes it as “A naturally robust and earthy wine red, Marsala enriches our minds, bodies and souls.”   This is a great color for romance now.

For those that do not prefer red, there are designer that are interpreting marsala for a dusty mauve.  Enjoy the color of the year.
