How To Pick Your Wedding Colors!

When planning my wedding, I knew I wanted the colors of blush & gold. I felt these two colors were both on trend, as well as timeless. For many brides, deciding on what your wedding colors should be can be a daunting task. Here are a few of my tips that should help make the choice a little bit easier.

  • Pick a dark and light combination: You want your wedding colors to be complimentary as well as contrasting. An easy way to do this is by picking a dark base color, and accenting it with your lighter color choice._mg_8230
  • Consider your season, but don’t let that limit you: I chose blush as one of my colors, which is typically a spring or summer color. But I got married in the fall. While it can be smart or convenient to select you colors based on the season you get married in, don’t let that limit your choices. I had my heart set on the blush color, oranges and burgundies just weren’t my thing. :
  • Use Pinterest as inspiration & direction: When you are picking linens, charger plates, flowers, and other items that involve your colors, it can get overwhelming. I highly recommend using Pinterest to hon your ideas. It will give you some direction, as well as specific pictures to show your vendors.
  • Make sure you have a base color: The base color of your palette needs to be a neutral. White, cream, or even black are great bases to keep your colors in check. Our wedding featured a lot of white in the background of the color scheme. This will help keep your colors from overwhelming your beautiful day. :

Stila Best Of Kitten Gold Makeup Set!

Happy Monday, everyone!

Over the weekend I took my usual trip to Marshalls. I almost left with a new Kate Spade bag, but it was white and sadly had a few marks on it. I did, however, leave with some Stila makeup that I’ve been eyeing ever since I started watching YouTube makeup videos. It was beautifully packaged in a gold, metallic box that caught my eye instantly. Inside it had an eyeliner, eyeshadow, lip gloss, liquid luminizer, and a gold bracelet from Baublebar. For $18 I thought it was a steal! I took some swatches & the payoff seems great! The colors are beautiful. This find was awesome!

The Perfect Hostess!

Happy Monday, everyone!

Today I thought I’d talk about how to be the perfect hostess! Throwing a party can be both stressful & time-consuming. RSVP’s must be sent out, color scheme chosen, food made, tables set, & numerous other duties.

It is best to allow yourself plenty of time to make all these decisions. If you are throwing a rather large party (50-100 people), I think about 2-3 months allows you enough time to plan accordingly.

Once a color scheme is chosen (I picked gold & white), you can go out & purchase items that add elegance. I find that Marshalls & HomeGoods has the best selection when it comes to glassware, décor, & party items.

Food is where you can get really creative & fancy. Cheese plates with wine are a must! Petite, colorful hors d’oeuvres are perfect finger foods for small talk & allows your guests to mingle. Rather than a four-course meal, offer finger sandwiches. For dessert, small cakes, cookies, & coffee are the perfect way to end the night!

Here are a few more fabulous tips!
