If you aren’t too big on sprucing up your signs this is an easy way to get the point across.

Source

Source

Chalkboards, can easily be fixed to say what you want it to say…

Source

If you don’t want signs to be hanging from the back of your chair this is another way to still have it.

Source

Source

This room needed a little more light so why not have it be a focal point of the room?

Source

Well it looks like he is okay with that!

Source

Simplistic and adorable!

Source

If these were bigger they could easily be dressed up with accent flowers!

Source

This is my kind of style… but our signs might be the other way around.

Source

The flower arrangement says it all, so let your signs be the subtle messages.

Source

I’m picturing Gatsby with this one. Vintage!

Source

I absolutely love this one! Easy to recreate and jazz up a bit.

Source

Classic and simple for an elegant wedding theme.

Source

These ideas are just a starting point. You can take these and create them to be your own. One aspect I love most about being a coordinator is the ability to see each couple take a spin on a classic style. With the high wishes that this will be your one and only time getting married, why not go all out?!

Friday Florals-Edelweiss

Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow.

My love for The Sound of Music started at a young age.  My mother and I made it an annual tradition to watch it together during the holidays.  We would sing every song at the top of our lungs and dance around the living room.  To this day, I always get a warm feeling when I hear any song from The Sound of Music.  BUT my all time favorite song was always and will always be “Edelweiss” .  So I got to thinking… I wonder if people have incorporated Edelweiss into their weddings and how was it done?

Edelweiss (edel=noble, weiss=white) is very rare and short-lived flower that can be found in secluded mountain areas. The flower is a symbol for rugged beauty, nobility and purity associated with the Alps and is a national symbol of Austria and Switzerland. There are stories and stories about the Edelweiss including young men who would climb the alps up dangerous trails pick Edelweiss and present to their special lady . It was a symbol of true love.  As for the girl who received the Edelweiss , she would often dry,  press it and frame it to be used as a pendant – to remember the man who had found this flower and presented it to her to show his devotion. The Edelweiss is love.  Love and devotion. Prefect for weddings.

I love Edelweiss in bridal bouquets, it softens the look with a velvet touch.

Source

Source

The simplicity of the Edelweiss looks beautiful and streamlined for wedding cakes and decorations.

Source

Source

Incorporating Edelweiss in a floral crown or headband is a stunning touch and would compliment a mountain wedding.

“Edelweiss, Edelweiss
Every morning you greet me
Small and white clean and bright
You look happy to meet me
Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever
Edelweiss,Edelweiss
Bless my homeland forever”

-Rodgers And Hammerstein

Sailors, Skiers, and Super Heroes – Boutonnieres Galore!

Throughout the wedding process men might find it a little difficult to show their true personality within the décor. Their one (and only) accessory for the night is their boutonniere. The options and possibilities are ENDLESS! When talking with your florist, try incorporating your fiancés favorite hobby, music, or movie to show how much you appreciate his character.

These were some of my personal favorites because they were outside the box!

Source

If he likes his wine, this is a very simple way to show just that! Get a cork from his favorite bottle and mix it with your favorite accent flower & greenery. Simple yet different!

Source

This is perfect for that Colorado ski bum! Many different colors could be added onto the skis to match your wedding pallet.

Source

Musician? This is a classic way of “noting” his musical talents. Another idea might be to add the title of his favorite song onto one of the sheets in front of this flower.

Source

This would be perfect for the fiancé who is always working on that model car in the garage or is known as the one person who can fix ANYTHING.

Source

This is becoming more popular! One quick tip if this is what you would like to do for your groom, make sure to clip the barb down on the fly… If they put their jacket on their chair then lean back, you can not only puncture his nice shirt but it will be very difficult to get out as well.

Source

If he is a master on the putting green this might be a way to show it! The tee can be the main focal point of the boutonniere or it can easily be hidden on the side.

Source

If you enjoy the outdoors as much as he does, pine cones are a great addition to decor and as you can see here it adds texture to his boutonniere!

Source

Sailing is an excellent hobby. Getting the knots to look just right may take a bit, but there are so many rope colors you can play with to see how it can match your decor!

Source

This might be a bit extreme, but if your groom is a cartoon/action figure fanatic you might want to consider this!

Source

This is so creative! Love every part about this airplane!

Source

Adding a vintage piece can add tradition and meaning to the grooms boutonniere.

Source

This cactus is a spin on the original flower boutonniere. It’s different and unique.

Source

Has your groom found a passion for brewing? Possibly taken a tour around Fort Collins once or twice? This is an awesome representation of his extra curricular activities.

Source

Star Wars! Another example of how to involve his favorite movie or hero.

Source

Burlap has become very popular for that rustic look. If you are using wheat in your wedding this is a classic way of including it in his boutonniere as well!

Source

Is he a hunter? This isn’t as bold as using only a shot gun shell for the boutonniere, it can be spiced up a bit.

Source

This is one of my ABSOLUTE favorites! Autumn is the best time of year in my opinion and the brown with the fresh white of cotton just says perfection to me.

If you have been looking for a way to stray away from the traditional boutonniere I hope this got your creative juices flowing. Something about having an original piece for your groom to be connected to will tie him into the excitement of accessorizing. Any of these can be used through many different seasons, don’t get so stuck on what will look good or what people will think, remember to have some fun with it too!

Fav “It Girl” Weddings

What’s an “It Girl” you ask?  The term references a women who is extremely fashion forward, confident, and iconic.  She is the ultimate class act and can always keep her cool, especially when the paparazzi arrive in herds to snap pics of her. She knows who she is and what she wants.  There are indeed celebrity “it girls” from Alexa Chung to the Jagger sisters who inspire folks by their keen fashion sense,  mock their style and secretly want to be.

Each “It Girl” below has their own unique style for their weddings.  While they are all beautiful in their own way, each is so different and out of the ordinary that we can’t help but to love these weddings! I’d like to present my fav fashion “it girls”.

Kate Moss, that’s all that really needs to be said here.  However, I’ll add a little text with this.  She is hands down one of the most inspiring fashion icons of our time. Her wedding highlights her signature effortless style while looking absolutely stunning.

Fashion Stylist Molly Fishkin looked to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen to design her one of a kind dress. The twins doubled their wedding duty as brides maids to Molly.

Love is in the air! This couldn’t be more accurate for our next “It Girl” Pamela Love.  Bohemian chic to the max.  Pamelas dress was designed by her best friend and designer Mara Hoffman.  The wedding was interactive as many of her friends and family collaborated on the decor of the wedding including a vegan cake, a hand crafted tee pee and a birch chuppah.

My absolute favorite Jewelry Designer Pamela Love and illustrator Matthew Nelson.

The “It Girl”.  Girls want to be them and guys want to meet them.

FRIDAY FLORALS: THE OTHER MUM

You know how they say, “Never judge a book by its cover?” Well in this case, “Don’t judge a flower by its name”. This flower adds that natural elegance into any bouquet or table arrangement but the name… not so much. It’s called Leptospermum. You can find this flower in many shades, however, the most popular are white, pink, and red.

See below for this unique Friday Floral and if you would want to use this peculiar accent flower.

Add detail to both elaborate and simple bouquets. It allows for flowers such as the peony and anemone to stick out. Gorgeous!

It can also be used as a filler for many table arrangements! This flower can blend in with natural themes to add sophisticated charm.
