So you’ve been hearing me go on and on about the colors for our wedding….well finally, I’ve got the fabric inspirations to show you! Being an interior designer, I’m lucky enough to have access to an amazing array of fabrics and colors, and these are all ones we’ve worked with at our office. I actually got the inspiration from a bench cushion we designed for a client a year ago… it was various shades of green, and then I added in the shot of yellow and white. The fabrics will be wrapped around our centerpiece vases, three for each table, and then filled with various white flowers. I’ll be experimenting whether its better to doublestick tape them to the vases, or to sew sleeves. You’ll also notice I went a little crazy at the ribbon stores….I just can’t help myself! I plan on working all of them in somehow, but I’ll leave that a mystery for now.

We’re at the month mark! 30 days left!
Early on, I got really excited about buying everything bridal, and now I’m stuck with a lot of extras. All in excellent condition and worthy of my stamp of approval!! I have a full coverage birdcage veil, still in the box, that I purchased off Etsy, but sadly, will not be using, and then bought way too many of these Knock Knock bridal thank you cards for my bridal shower [I don't think these are available anymore]. If anyone in the NYC area is interested in either of these items, lemme know. I’ve got 3 packs of 12 cards each for $20 total, and the veil for $20….pick up only. Serious inquiries only.
UPDATE: Veil is sold….cards are still available.

Wishpot is a great way to let people know what you’re dying to get…without the hassle of a traditional registry. You don’t have to worry about selecting items from certain stores since you can “register” for anything from ANY store online! They’ve got a fun list of bridal experts ranging from Ecochic Weddings to Weddingbee to….well, me! You can check out what all of us are coveting….mine’s a little bare to start, but I plan on adding to it once the wedding activity dies down a bit.

I had my hair trial recently, and while the pictures came out horribly [bad lighting in the salon], these were the inspiration. I fell in love with Michelle Williams’s side swept bun in the infamous Vera Wang dress and knew right away thats how I wanted mine to be. With the french veil I’ll be wearing, I think it will look pretty fresh.
