Color Monday: Carnival Backyard Wedding

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Stationery

Wedding Colors: Custom Emerald | Carrot | Strawberry| Brown

Backyard weddings are incredibly popular–for lots of reasons. They tend to be friendlier on the budget, more intimate for guests, and just plain cozier! For today’s “Color Monday” our backyard celebration features a rich mix of jewel-toned colors and unique wedding ideas. With its steampunk edge, how fun would it be to attend this festive fete with carnival games, outdoor draperies, and all night dancing under a canopy of dangling parasols and romantic string lighting … *Sigh*

And for such a soiree, we chose the Tea-length Wedding Invitation from the Vintage Bunting suite to set the tone. With its collage of vintage patterns, this invite can be easily personalized in your wedding colors.

Color Monday: Vintage Romance for A Modern Wedding

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Stationery

A modern-vintage wedding has a fluid and timeless feel–always evolving and always on trend. If you haven’t already, you can see and read over the 2014 wedding & stationery trends and specifically, the modern-vintage trend. Two of the easiest places to find fantastic vintage wedding inspiration is from Old Hollywood movies and wandering through historic venues. From style to swagger, translate your favorite era through your attire, venue, decor, floral choices and of course, your wedding stationery. Today’s inspiration is soft, romantic–full of lacy details and rustic diy elements. Imagine a vintage suitcase for your card box, an old window frame with your menu painted in the panes, a bridal party in mix and match dresses and a sweet color scheme of peach, pink, champagne and ivory. Ah, springtime–the perfect time for a vintage romantic wedding. Be inspired! See all 10 wedding & stationery trends.

Fun, Retro Styled Engagement Shoot

Categories Inspiration

Giveaway alert: MagnetStreet is giving away150 Save the Dates to 5 lucky winners! Enter on Facebook.

About half of our couples know their wedding theme right from the start and beginning with their Save the Date, start stringing the look and feel together. Now, the other half doesn’t necessarily have their look and feel nailed down so early, so they simply pair their fave photo with their fave Save the Date design. Super fun and it’s all good… Whichever camp you fall in to, a themed engagement session is a really fun option for giving guests a glimpse into your wedding look, styles and personalities. Case in point: today’s themed shoot from Alabama’s j.woodbery photography. Classic attire, vintage props and a 1950′s diner all give laser focus to this retro engagement shoot and a vintage Save the Date. Have you considered a theme engagement session?

From zany to sweet, check out the bottom of this post for 10 engagement theme ideas and sessions.
