We’re on the cusp of Spring (fingers crossed) so I’m starting to crave happier, brighter, cooler colors. And lavender just screams Spring to me. It’s sweet, cheerful and also overtly feminine, which is not something I normally gravitate to in my everyday life. But for your wedding day, is there a more perfect time to embrace some girly details? I certainly don’t think so. – Courtney

Hello, Brooklyn Bride readers! We are so happy to be joining the crew here as guest contributors, and we’re absolutely flattered that Vané brought us on board. Since we are not expressly wedding folks, every month we’ll be cooking up a little inspiration for you for all of the other events and details that go with weddings–showers, parties, gift ideas, and other ways to make getting married more fun and less stressful (we hope). To learn more about us and what we do, you can visit our website and our blog. Let’s get to it!
Though both of us have pledged our eternal and undying love to summer, we have to admit that we’ve been caught making eyes at fall a few times. Fall has a wonderful masculinity about it. It smells like bonfires and tobacco, and is a time when we all want to adorn ourselves with argyle and tweed. In short, it’s the perfect season for a not-girly-at-all couples’ shower. Here’s our inspiration board; look for the full post tomorrow!

Recently one of our Urbanic brides asked me what trends I was seeing this year in wedding invitations. I thought about it for a minute and realized that I have noticed more purples incorporated into wedding colors than ever! This inspired me to gather up a few things from the shop (and some extras) for you Brooklyn Briders to enjoy!
