Color Monday: Pink and Gold Wedding

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Stationery

Big Congrats to Sean Lowe and Catherine Guidici from “The Bachelor”–who were married on live TV last night! Are you a fan? Did you watch? 

That said, today’s Color Monday is devoted to Sean and Catherine’s “grown sexy” wedding day look–a pretty palette of pink and gold. “The wedding’s all about the bride” said Sean … so needless to say, our inspiration does not feature bear and panda heads {remember their quirky Save the Date?} but rather a soft, feminine look for a romantic, traditional and extravagant   affair–complete with gilded accents, ambient lighting and chandeliers, of course.

What do you think of this trendy, rose-gold romantic look?

Suite Details

In our “Bachelor” inspiration, we personalized French Damask Pocket Wedding Invitation in gold and a custom pink. It’s long and slender style is perfect for creating a bit of drama around the wedding details. Enclosures fit neatly into the bottom pocket to keep everything organized and in one place! We like to think that Sean and Catherine would approve.

As originally designed, browse French Damask Stationery Design Suite.

Color Monday: Pantone’s Radiant Orchid

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Stationery

Hello, Radiant Orchid!

Have you warmed up to the idea of incorporating Pantone’s Radiant Orchid {aka “Color of the Year”} into your 2014 wedding? I have to admit, this pretty purple is really starting to grow on me. Kind of like the super hero of hues, Radiant Orchid is warm and cool at the same time; plus, it looks great on most skin tones, hair and eyes! It feels fresh, modern and fun–especially in a gradient like this *adorable* bride’s ombre’ wedding dress and the Watercolor Ombre Wedding Invitation shown below. It’s a flexible color too… Keep a sassy {yet sophisticated} monochromatic look with a variety of purple tints, or go straight to the other side of the color wheel and contrast Radiant Orchid with an equally lively green. Any way you look at it, Radiant Orchid is a charming choice for 2014.

 Tell us, what do you think about this high-spirited purple?

5 Fitness Trends to Build into Wedding Planning

Categories Budget + Resources

Happy New Year!
Ugh! Those dreaded holiday pounds… Need a few ideas for shedding them? Planning a wedding too? Great–this post is for all of us. This new year offers a healthy start for getting in shape–more convenient, more social, and more affordable than ever.

FIVE 2014 fitness trends you can build into wedding planning that are affordable & fun!

5 fitness trends for 2014

Wedding planning is not for wimps. It takes goals, a plan, and perseverance to execute them. And what better time to start {hello, 2014!} to make S.M.A.R.T. goals {Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-based}–from fitness to wedding planning! Get your free printable wedding planning checklist and let’s take a look at

5 of the hottest fitness trends for 2014

 

1. High Intensity Interval Training {HIIT}

Sprint over to this type of training if you want fast results in a short amount of time {& who doesn’t?!}. Usually around 30 minute workouts, HIIT involves short bursts of high-intensity activity followed by recovery periods of lesser intensity. From the gym to the park, get a fast, highly-effective workout over your lunch hour!

 

2. Body Weight Training

For minimalists {and those without gym memberships} who want to grab a workout anytime, anywhere–at no cost! Beyond push-ups, here are 50 body-weight exercises you can do anywhere. Get in shape on your own time–without paying a dime.

 

3. Workout Happy Hours

Replacing “networking” with “sweat-working” friends are getting together over elliptical machines–rather than nacho platters after work these days. And fitness companies are stepping it up too–check your local store out to see what social dimensions they’re adding for customers who want to have fun and challenge each other on the road to fitness. Working out has never been more social! 

 

4. Group Training Sessions

When the times get tough, the tough get going in 2014! Many personal trainers are becoming more understanding of tough economic times and have begun offering group training sessions to help soften the costs and spread out the fees for motivated clients. Get your group on + personalized fitness training sessions.

 

5. Yoga

Ironic, this ancient practice continues to “trend”. Yoga is a crowd-pleaser–not only because of its many health benefits {from stress busting to calorie busting} but also because it’s constantly being reinvented for the partaker. There are so many different types of yoga for every type of need. Pick up your mat and pick your Yoga style.
