Chocolate Weddings!

I have made a sincere effort to bring you something new every day, even on days like today when everything I’m doing seems to be taking longer than expected, and as a result, I am rushing through everything!

I do have something wonderful to share with you, however. I came across this post on GreenWeddingShoes and just fell in LOVE with this invitation:

And can we please talk about this gummy bear?! It weighs 5 lbs and is equivalent to 1,400 regular sized gummy bears. I actually bought one of these for my dad a couple years ago for Christmas. You can get them in 7 different flavors HERE.

Not to mention the chocolate bouquet. Yup, chocolate. An edible bouquet.

So it got me thinking about a chocolate wedding! What if chocolate was your whole theme, not just the color of the bridesmaid dresses and the flavor of the cake? Perhaps you would purchase items like these:

Grey Weddings

I’ve seen a huge uptick in grey weddings lately. Brides seem to be turning to this neutral as their main color, accenting it with fuschia, mustard, apple green, or even teal (which is a VERY hot wedding color this year!). I am currently working with a bride who is using a palette of white, platinum, dark grey, silver and black, all balanced out by a silhouette Chicago skyline running along the bottom of her pocketfold invitations (check back in a couple weeks for photos).

Here are a few ideas for incorporating this versatile color into your wedding color scheme!
