1. 9 Wedding Trends That Need To Give It Up To The New Cool Kids In Class

    Trends can be tricky, in any world. As Ms. Klum put it best, "One Day You're In, The Next Day You're Out!" It seems that when it comes to wedding trends, the length of stay can become a bit exaggerated, rinse & repeating for an almost forever like period of time. As someone who flits through weddings on a daily basis, I've seen more then my share of repeaters and as such, want to inspire a new round of hot tamale trends that will help to break the mold into a new cycle of wedding hotness! Now don't get me wrong, any trend that ever existed had a right to be there and anything that was indeed a trend was so because it was popular & appreciated. In no way am I saying any of these are ugly or unworthy, rather I am simply offering a fresh take, & a new look!

  2. Why It Works Wednesday: The Bohemian Outdoor Palette Lounge

    Not to long ago, Green Wedding Shoes featured a pretty amazing anniversary session in South Africa shoot by Adene Photography with a guest appearance by a.... cheetah! Now I could go on forever about why I think cheetahs are awesome, but alas, they are not the center focus of today's design breakdown. The styling for the shoot as a whole, from fashion to floral to decor, is a complete knockout and honestly I could talk about the entire thing, however there is one particular area that I really wanted to zero in on, the amazingly cool floral canopied palette lounge set up. I see outdoor lounge areas crafted all the time with various unique elements, but there is a certain something about this particular setup that is a bit otherworldly & wildly enchanting!

  3. Why It Works Wednesday: The Natural Beauty Of Nature

    To me, sometimes the most beautiful things, are those that are the simplest things and such is the case with today's gorgeous WIWW. If you ever wanted to see a wonderfully unique & especially fun idea for a wedding, I implore you to head over to Green Wedding Shoes to check out this super cool, real wedding, at a Frontier Village! From the location to all the little details, its pretty clear to see why the guests had such an amazing time. There was one piece in particular that caught my eye, the table setting.

  4. Why It Works Wednesday: Casual Chic Tree Mounted Escort Card Display

    One of my favorite things to always be on the lookout for are the creative ways that people direct guests to their seats. I keep a coveted board devoted to these creative feats of whimsy called Find Your Seat on Pinterest. I'll be completely honest with you now, when I get a wedding submission & get to the escort card part of the day only to see fold over cards with names printed on them just sitting on a table, its feels like a big 'wah wah'. Don't get me wrong, I understand that not everyone feels that escort cards are worth their planning time or even creative juices, but there are such lovely things that can be done with just the smallest bit of effort, it really is worth it! Naturally there are all kinds of over the top, ultra involved ways to present guests with their seating arrangements as well, but those styles are not always for everyone. I came across a gorgeous escort card display from a real wedding on Style Me Pretty and I am in love with it, its the perfect example of how a small bit of forethought can be powerful. Its chic, its organic feeling, & at the root, simple.
