In 2010 we will be seeing lots of white weddings with great modern twists. Take for example this beautiful all-white cake with lovely white magnolias from Kristine Bender of K. Rose Cakes.
An updated alternative to the mid-90s satin shoe is this fabulous pair of Jaceline shoes by RSVP.
We are quite fond of these blooms by Laura Dowling.
Lastly, take a look at this brilliant idea from Martha Stewart: Rosemary Sea Salt favors.
Allow us to take a moment to have a heart-to-heart with the public regarding wedding favors. Please, PLEASE, stop a) wasting your money b) cluttering our houses and c) making us feel guilty for throwing away useless wedding favors, which are largely chokshki items with your name and wedding date engraved on them. A box of matches with your names? Go for it! We all love candles, therefore matches are useful. However - a mini terracotta pot with “the perfect pear” and your wedding date painted on it? Ahem. If you’re gonna spend a wad of cash, spend it on something your guests will enjoy. Like more alcohol and extra shrimp.
Bottom line: for those lucky gals planning a wedding in 2010 (or helping a dear friend or sister), consider a white palette. It’s clean, simple, classic, bright and can be reinvented in a number of ways. The possibilities are endless!
For other great ideas, we suggest you check out Snippet & Ink or Green Wedding Shoes, just two of our long list of favorite wedding blogs. Collect ideas from these gals and the weddings they feature from other parts of the country and then use them to make your event unique and demonstrative of your personality.
