Real Wedding: Sarah & Ilir

This week’s Real Wedding features Sarah and Ilir’s intimate affair at the JW Marriott Camelback Inn, in Phoenix, AZ. Both raised in Europe, Sarah and Ilir met with working at Ballet Arizona. These two sweethearts opted for a non-traditional wedding, that included a small, family only ceremony and dinner. Making their big day even more special was Sarah’s twin brother serving as a one-of-a-kind officiant.

Over the years the couple has gathered friends from around the world and they wanted to be sure to include them on their special day, so they hosted a unique brunch at the same venue the following day, along with another small reception in Madison, WI a few months later. What a fabulous idea!

Simple Thanksgiving Place Setting Ideas

With Thanksgiving (or Friendsgiving) approaching, Gillian from Coastal Bride shares these simple yet completely chic place setting ideas for the holiday.

Wedding Paper Divas Menu Place settingHi everyone! I’m Gillian from Coastal Bride, a Charleston, SC, based wedding blog. I am so excited to be sharing some fun Thanksgiving table-scape DIY’s with you today. Each of these place settings are super simple to create yet will make a splash with your guests!

For the first setting I decided to work with a purple color palette. I chose the eggplant ribbon from Wedding Paper Divas collection as well as the Midnight Beauty place cards in Amethyst. I kept the florals simple and organic by using fresh greenery, which gives the table a pop while letting the décor shine. I created a gold wishbone that doubles as a place setting and a favor for guests to take home.

Thanksgiving is a time of harvest so I kept the décor natural with wheat husks serving as place settings tied off with elegant wine colored ribbon. The Krafted Love menu cards in copper foil are the perfect contrast to the bold tones of the protea centerpiece.
