Chevron Pattern

I have a confession to make. I love chevron. To be honest, it’s a little outside of my box. I tend to be drawn to classic romantic details and chevron leans a little modern but it’s not too much. It’s definitely not over the top modern so it can be incorporated into so many different themes. This pattern is showing up all over the wedding scene in fascinating new ways. Check out some great ideas below or try coming up with some of your own: linens, ribbon for your bouquet, tie’s, cupcakes could all be great ideas!

Drink of the Week: Live Basil Gimlet

Drinks No Comments by Nicole

The perfect summer cocktail! Nothing like the smell of fresh basil to make you think summer right? Is anyone else as obsessed with Caprese as I am? Yumm. My sweet basil plant that I started growing a little over a month ago is starting to bloom with its wonderfully fragrant leaves. I can’t wait to try this drink once they are full grown!! Cheers!

Who Doesn’t Love Belts?

Belt, sash, whatever you’d like to call it, they can really pull together your wedding day look. Plus, if you like sparkly things like I do, it’s just an added bonus!!! You should really consider adding one to your gown, whether it be sparkly, ruffly or feathery! They come in all prices ranges and colors. I don’t know about you but I feel like I need something at my waist line so I love this idea!! Talk to your bridal salon about options they offer!

Drink of the Week: Classic Mai Tai

Drinks No Comments by Nicole

I love a classic cocktail. It’s the test of a great maker of drinks. Anyone can throw fruit together and add some liquor and it still tastes great but if you can nail a classic… you know you got it!! Today we visit the classic Mai Tai for the classic bride and groom. Of course a Mai Tai still has a great tropical flavor to it so it’s nowhere near boring. Plus its one of the great choices that both men and women seem to love!
