Eye Candy: Fuchsia Favorites

It can be hard to find a pink or purple that doesn’t read too feminine, but we think Pantone Vivacious is the perfect answer to that. The purple undertones in this vibrant fuchsia keep your color theme from straying into the “girly” realm, even when paired with flower crowns and bows. And it lends to beautiful, rich texture in a bridal bouquet. Find elegant wedding invitations to match, and you have a stunning wedding trend!

Now, if only every wedding party included a flower bearing donkey…

Get Inspired by Our Top Gifts for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is less than a month away (May 12, if you need a reminder!), and if you are looking to do something extra special for Mom this year, it’s time to start planning.

Not only did Mom raise you, but she probably acted – or is currently – as head wedding coordinator for your special day, assisting with everything from addressing envelopes to helping with table seating. Take this Mother’s Day to share your gratitude with a gift that lets Mom know how much you appreciate everything she does.

Mother's Day gift choices -- Wedding Paper Divas blog

1. Make an album she’ll cherish forever

She may have seen your wedding photos already, but pulling the very best images into one beautiful parents’ album will create a brag book Mom can share with her friends. Try to choose photos that will speak to her – a shot of her dancing, your father’s speech, or the cutting of the cake are all great memories.

2. Create a daily reminder of your love

A family photo from your wedding day is the perfect shot to put on a photo mug. If you live far away, this gift is a daily reminder of your love as your mother sips her morning tea.

3. Give a gift as unique as your bond

A photo gift makes a stunning present for Mom to display in her home. Family shots, or a photo of you and your mother, are the best to display here.

4. A special space for everyday notes

If your mother is a listmaker, help keep her to-dos extra sweet with a custom notepad. Pick a style that fits her, and match a photo from your wedding (a shot of the two of you would be extra sweet).

5. DIY a photo project

Roll up your sleeves and spend a Saturday creating these one of a kind photo vases. With just a few supplies, this simple DIY craft makes a big statement. For an extra bonus, fill them with Mom’s favorite blooms.

6. Pamper Mom with her favorite treats

For a special gift, fill a basket with luxurious treats that all have one purpose – to help Mom relax. Bath salts, candles, perfumes, and lotions are perfect for this. You can even add in an extra soft towel or robe. And we don’t think Mom would mind if you slipped in a bar or two of specialty chocolates!

Eye Candy: Set Sail with Nautical Accents

From wedding invitations to reception decor, a nautical wedding theme gives a bride plenty of options – whether the wedding is seaside or not! What we love most about this wedding theme is the element of fun it brings to your special day. After all, it’s hard to stay too serious when your groomsmen are showing off their anchor socks. But don’t let the fun fool you. This classic theme offers elegant touches, from stripes to gorgeous cakes, and of course, the timeless color combination of red and blue.

Here are five of our favorite nautical wedding inspirations:
