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!

reader question II

to continue with our reader question today, i thought i would offer a couple of inspiration boards to get the ideas flowing. i think because the ceremony/reception site is so beautiful, it might be best to go with simple touches on your tables--bright fresh lemons, blue tinted bottles, or vibrant yellow flowers in white ceramic vases. it's nice when you don't have to dress up the site too much!
these two looks offer just an airy feel with beautiful bursts of color. i know that blue wasn't perhaps one of the main colors nancy mentioned, but after seeing a picture of the gordon lodge, i thought you could play up the blue of lake michigan and the seaside theme.
any more ideas? let us know what you think!

reader question

oh talk about a late start! oh man. but i wanted to get this one in before the end of the day. i have a reader question from nancy and would love to enlist the help of all our weddings fresh readers. and just for some general direction, i have shown an overhead shot of the location of her wedding at gordon lodge--absolutely fabulous. if anyone out there is near baileys harbor, wi you should check this place out! here goes:

I am in the midst of planning my wedding (June
6th 2009) and all I have is a location and swatch of fabric for an
inspiration board. I was wondering if you or your readers could help
me with a couple things.

First, I'm looking for a red dress for my bridesmaids. I'd like to
find a cocktail dress that doesn't look like a typical bridesmaid
dress - just something classy for a Saturday afternoon outdoors

I am also trying to figure out what my tables will look like. I
really like different tones of yellow together, with accents of red,
green and light blue [...] The ceremony will be
outside on the shore of Lake Michigan, and the reception will be in a
sunny room on the shore as well (Gordon Lodge, Baileys Harbor, WI).

I guess I just don't know how to go forward in the general design.
What's the next step? Any suggestions?


okay ladies, you have anything for nancy? color pallets, bridesmaid direction, tablescape ideas; whatever you got we would love to hear it!
