Theme Thursday – Thinking about 2013 Weddings!

I don’t have a specific theme for today, but rather some general info for getting started with your wedding and reception plans for 2013!  Some of these topics we will discuss in more detail in the coming weeks (like the colors listed below), but for now, here’s a “quick start” to 2013 wedding planning!

Wedding Colors:

According to a couple of wedding trends websites I’ve visited recently, some of the most popular wedding colors for 2013 will be aqua, tangerine, lilac, mustard, antique blue, deep red, latte, lavender, charcoal, and sage.  What do you think?

Wedding Themes:

Traditional church weddings still exist of course, but more and more it seems that couples are choosing “theme” weddings.  Destinations like Hawaii and Mexico seem to be HUGELY popular… outdoor, folksy weddings… vintage and shabby chic (also usually outdoors)…. Las Vegas (of course).  Check out this video from Martha Stewart – she and her Darcy Miller share some lovely trends and ideas. (you’ll have to bear through a 30 second advertisement first).  She also is offering a destination wedding sweepstakes!

Wedding DIY:

Here at Diva Entertains we talk A LOT about DIY (or do-it-yourself).  All of our posts are chock-full of DIY ideas for parties and entertainment.  Over the last few months, the best place to go to find wedding DIY is Pinterest.  We have set up Pinterest boards with links to recipes, DIY ideas, themes, and just plain fun stuff.  If you aren’t on Pinterest, you should be!  You can follow Diva Entertains by clicking HERE…. and click on over to see the latest “pins” under “wedding, diy”:

Wedding Favors:

We love wedding favors – designing them, making them, selling them, sharing them.  It is a wonderful feeling to be a part of a bride’s special day, and we have some AMAZING favors in our Diva Entertains shop.  We try not to be blatant with “selling” our own goods here on the DE blog, but if you are looking for niche favors, theme favors, specific color favors – well, we have them!

Thursday Theme – GOLD

Oh my… do I have some LUSCIOUS photos to share today.  We all know gold goes with weddings like cookies go with milk – it’s really hard to have one without the other!  I have found some incredible GOLDEN inspirations for you.

From BBJ Linen comes a small but FAB gallery of gold wedding ideas.  Check out this sheer gold set-up.  Isn’t it amazing how a little thing such as chair bows make such a big impact?  Diva Entertains offers similar ones HERE.

From once wed, just look at this milk and honey (aka gold) wedding tablescape:

Gold wedding cake, anyone?  From Brides.com and America’s Most Beautiful Cakes: There are 25 beautiful cakes to scroll through.  Not all are gold, but all are *fabulous*!

For a completely unique bouquet, go with a gold brooch and floral bouquet!  From wedding chicks.com, a couple of ideas on how to pull it off:

From 100 Layer Cake, a DIY post about how to make colored mason jars for centerpieces – and in this case GOLD mason jars!  Such an inexpensive way to beautifully decorate.

And from Martha Stewart, a DIY on creating the perfect gold-toned guest book table:

Theme Thursday – Peacock Colors

We’ve been talking about a lot of different themes for weddings and parties on our Theme Thursdays.  This week, I thought I would do a little more on the topic of PEACOCK color schemes, since it’s such a popular theme lately.  We’re talking royal blues, deep purples, greens, teals and turquoise…

From Brides.com, an incredible tiered wedding cake, with all the fabulous peacock colors:

The easiest way to get TONS of peacock cake inspiration is to go to Google.com/Images and type in “peacock cakes” or some derivative of that (ex: peacock wedding cake).  Then print out the pics of the cakes that you love so that when you meet with your baker you can share your likes (and dislikes).
Also found on Brides.com, a FAB feather clip for your wedding shoes:

Etsy.com is a fabulous source for peacock feather shoe clips (that’s where the above was from) and peacock feather hair accessories.  Just type in those words when you get there!

I found these amazing peacock gown on eDressMe:

And some very original (and gorgeous) peacock ring bearer pillows, from Bronze Budget Bride:

And finally, from our Diva Entertains shop, some gorgeous Save the Date postcard designs:

 

 

Happy Theme Thursday!

Theme Thursday – a Yellow and Gray Wedding

One of my most favorite things to do when reading other party and entertainment blogs is to “collect themes”.  It is fascinating to me the color combinations and ideas that are out there for parties, and especially for weddings.  With that idea in mind, I thought we’d share themes on Thursdays for the next few weeks.

Today’s theme?  Yellow and Gray!  Sleek modern gray, coupled with sweet soft yellow.  What a fabulous combination for wedding colors, don’t you think?  Ok, don’t take MY word for it… check out the inspiration I have for you…

From Style Me Pretty, some gorgeous eye-candy full of yellows and grays:


Seriously… look at this table setting!  Love how something so small as a single flower stem elevates the look to something so beautiful and special.

From weddingchicks.com, another fabulous array of yellow and gray.  I’m in LOVE with these yellow wedding shoes! She shares so many lovely little touches such as bud vases, unique place cards, yellow striped straws and more.

From the Hostess blog, a stunning, jaw-droppingly gorgeous yellow and gray dessert table.

And for the DIY’ers, check out this post about making a celebration banner… in yellow and gray, of course!

For further *FAB* inspiration pictures, ideas and sources go to Google.com/Images and type in what you are interested in learning about, such as:

  • yellow and gray wedding cakes
  • yellow and gray invitations
  • yellow and gray wedding centerpieces

 

Are you planning a wedding, and have a fun color combination theme we should check out?  We’d love to hear about it!
