gown friday!

it's friday!! wheew! this week went by fast--today i want to share romona keveza's couture spring 2009 collection. known for her shapely design and gowns that are as much timeless as they are modern, her spring 2009 collection is no exception. i am completely in love with the asymmetrical trumpet skirts--the gown above is just to die for--any bride would be a showstopper in this! and it seems she has crossed over to a little non-traditional with bold colors...the gowns are gorgeous and don't be hesitant to make a statement. you could never go wrong in romona keveza, even if it's royal blue :)

fall flowers

we had a great, busy weekend, but one thing i realized, it's quickly turning to fall here in porltand! yay! fall is my favorite season. i love the clothes, the food, the smell and feel of the air...ahh i can't wait.

although any flower from any season and from any country is basically available at the drop of a hat these days, it is definitely not the most cost effective choice for the majority of brides out there :) so, in honor of our up and coming fall season i thought we could look at some beautiful and perhaps less known flower options for the fall wedding season. these flowers are available through most of fall and some are year round--and of course these are not the only options you have.

it's important to have a good understanding of what you are working with when you are planning your flowers, especially in fall and winter. it's easy to dream big about peonies and ranunculus' billowing from your bouquet in october or february but it's just not going to happen. i would suggest searching through flower books--martha stewart and real simple both have books with good direction and creative ideas for flowers in season. this will help give you a better idea of what to expect with your florist.

Marit Hanson Weddings

today i would like to "officially" introduce you to marit hanson weddings. i have eyed her work long ago and featured her designs for some unique save the date ideas, but thankfully yesterday i got in contact with her and have some more to share!!

my personal favorite are these first two; they are actually two options of a single design she created for a client. the bride and groom were married at a country club, and without going "cheesy matchy" marit decided to incorporate the "polka dots" on the golf ball for in the invitation. i love it! wonderfully simple, but as always with style and creativity.

sweet flowers

it is always an interesting endeavor when you have little ones leading the way for the bride, but is also always one of the sweetest parts of your wedding. and perhaps to add to the sweetness factor of your flower girls check out these flower handbags from the other sister on etsy. all perfectly hand created and fashioned, and can be custom ordered to perfectly match your bouquets and flower arrangements. so great!
