Today, we are so delighted to be sharing this spectacular black tie wedding with you all!
Alice and Peter held their big day in the ever-glamorous New York City. Their chic wedding had an all white wedding theme, paired with soft neutral colors. Have we mentioned yet that we think metallic tones are neutral?
From amazing rooftop pictures, pale champagne bridesmaids dresses, an elegant church ceremony, and a twinkly reception venue, we have to refrain from staring at all of its splendor. Their timeless wedding invitations help tie everything together!
Alice was lucky enough to wear two different gowns on her wedding day. The first wedding dress is strapless and filled with lots of glamorous tool; her second wedding dress has an amazing illusion neckline, with dainty floral accents scattered about. This classic, formal affair is truly a wedding that wowed its guests.
Calling all colorful details—periwinkle fabrics, orchid pumps, coral roses and metallic gold accents! Go bright and radiant with a periwinkle and coral wedding theme for an eye-catching look. We’re not sure anything can prepare you for spring as much as some pretty pink and blue wedding colors.
A wedding theme doesn’t have to follow any rules—pull in all your favorite elements for something totally unique. We love the eclectic additions like the vintage chair, the gold-painted bottles and the simple table decor.

We love this metallic foiled wedding invitation’s use of mixed fonts and variety of colors. It’s the perfect fit for a wedding that has a lot of style. The foil-stamped design elements add a great shine to the invite and would also be a gorgeous design for table numbers.
Chair Set up areas with furniture where guests can relax and mingle. A vintage chair adds so much style and encourages guests to linger and enjoy the scenery.
Ring Coral ruffles and textured fabrics make a gorgeous “bed” for photos of the wedding rings. Incorporate your colorful wedding theme whenever you can by placing periwinkle, coral, orchid and gold fabrics and details in your photos.
Gold Bottle Vases We love the shape of wine and beer/coke bottles for vases. They’re elegant and different than your rustic mason jars. Spray paint them in metallic gold—you’ll love how they reflect the candlelight, giving your tables a romantic glow. This is a super easy DIY project for your wedding! Not only is it ultra affordable, it looks very chic. We consider all metallic colors to be a neutral, so don’t be afraid to mix and match these items with your pink and blue wedding theme.
Tablescape Keep it simple. When decorating tables, you don’t have to add a lot of knick-knacks or over-do the flowers. It can be as simple as setting out nice flatware, glasses, beautifully designed menus and gold-painted vases.
Bouquet Loosely arrange coral roses, daisies and periwinkle flowers for an organic, outdoor wedding. Lightweight bouquets are just as beautiful as large arrangements and easier to hold all day long.
Boutonniere Add hypericum berries to boutonnieres for a hint of coral. Berries hold up to a long day from pre-ceremony to the wedding farewell.
Bridesmaids Periwinkle chiffon dresses give a cool-colored backdrop to bright bouquets full of coral and pink roses. Choose a background color, like periwinkle blue, for linens, dresses and shirts that will complement bright bouquets. If you enjoy some modern flare, make sure to have mismatched blue bridesmaids dresses.
Shoes These satin pumps in orchid are the perfect shoes for a unique wedding look. Not only a beautiful accent to your wedding dress, they’re versatile for those who want to change into a different dress after the ceremony.
Periwinkle with accents of coral and orchid make a gorgeous, colorful wedding theme. Add gold accents with painted bottles and foil-stamped stationery to create a romantic day.
Whether you’re looking to add airs and graces to your wedding stationery suite or more of a handcrafted shabby chic feel, our circle gift tags and ribbon will tickle you and your wedding guests pink. Here are two easy ways to add simple embellishments that add to your love story.
For this DIY, you will need thick ribbon, an envelopment and a circle gift tag. Style tip: Your circle gift tag selection will depend on where it’s being used. Here it is closing up your wedding stationery suite. In other places, you may choose a simple monogram for the gift tag.
Get the Look:
After you’ve enclosed all the wedding invite essentials within the envelopment, cut a long piece of ribbon.
Wrap the ribbon around the envelopment and place the circle gift tag over the ribbon and the envelopment to seal it. Ta da!
DIY #2: Gift Tags, Ribbon & Favor Boxes
For this DIY, you can choose thick or thin ribbon or both. The world is your oyster! You’ll also need favor boxes and gift tag stickers.
Get the Look:
1. After you have enclosed your delightful favor within the box, cut a piece of ribbon to wrap around the box. The stylish possiblities here are endless: you can double wrap, use two different ribbon colors and different sizes as well.
2. You can choose to tie the ribbon in an elegant bow, or add a gift tag—a circle or square will both do nicely—to seal the deal. Most importantly, remember that good things come in small packages.
Planning a fall wedding? Take a cue from our Pantone Aluminum Inspiration Board and set the tone for an elegant affair, which begins with your save the date cards. Aluminum—one of Pantone’s Top 10 Colors for Fall 2014—carries solid weight as a sophisticated silvery shade.
A cross between gray and silver, it adds an understated polish that will catch the eye—as any save the date card should do—and allows the bride and groom to be the stars. This futuristic neutral will shine, maintain its steely edge or establish a timeless mood as needed. From small details to large swashes, Aluminum hints at the wedding to come and opens to the possibilities of artful combinations in the suite that follows.

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.
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!
