Anyone planning to marry during the Christmas Holidays 2010? If so, why not plan ahead and begin looking for inspirations for your Christmas wedding! It's the most wonderful and festive time of the year! Enough to give you lots of great ideas.

I love candy canes and I am sure that a majority of you do as well. So why not use candy canes as your wedding inspiration! The stripes of the candy cane and color palette of red and white is enough to get you started!
Some ideas.....candy canes & roses, chocolate dipped peppermint sticks, and of course candy cane cocktails.

Feel free to incorporate other Christmas ideas such as snowflakes, wreaths, ornaments, and etc to bring out your candy cane themed wedding.

Happy Holidays!

Rainbows can be beautiful, whimsical, unique, and very meaningful. Anyone every thought of including rainbow in their wedding?

Rainbow weddings can symbolize two things:
  • HAPPINESS AND JOY: Rainbows commonly represents the beauty that comes after a storm or rain. Couples interested in a rainbow wedding can use this idea to show that they have finally found "Joy and Happiness" in their love; despite the trials, tribulations, and 'storms' of the outside world.
  • CHRISTIAN SYMBOLISM: For those who are Christians, a rainbow wedding can definitely be significant to the symbol used in the Old Testament to signify God's promise to his people: "I am putting my rainbow in the clouds as the sign of the agreement between me and the earth" (Genesis 9:13 NIV). A rainbow wedding can be represented as the couple's faith or of their marital union.
So let's check out some rainbow items that can be used in the wedding.....

Since we're getting into doing more Destination Weddings, I've decided to do some research to post ideas, decor, and inspirations for those either planning or interested in having a Destination Wedding in the future. Our theme for today is "Red Coral"! I think its very simple, vibrant, chic, and very modern.

During my research, I found some fabulous photos of cake, reception design layout, and decor to use for your destination wedding or event.

His & Hers Slimline Ring Cases

I absolutely love finding out and learning new things everyday, especially if it has anything to do with wedding/event planning....fashion...you name it and I want to know more about it! A friend of mine mentioned to me a few days ago, about the "His & Hers Slimline Ring Cases"; which I thought were pretty amazing! You can find this on the Dieline's blog post. The idea that the ring cases were not your typical ring boxes; and I also loved the fact that they are not only slim (of course!) but they are modern, chic, and very unique.

I thought that this would be fabulous in other colors as well, but when we contacted the company, we found out that they currently only make them in black. So we came across another blogger (Miss Gloss) who ended up loving the slimline ring case idea and made her own. Here are some photos of her DIY works.....

She did a pretty amazing job for a first timer don't you think!

Looks like I'll be giving it a shot for myself soon!

Miss Gloss shared her tips on how she made her slimline ring case:

"With the His and hers slimline ring boxes, I included my wedding date and inscribed on the back. I measured the diameter and height of our rings to ensure a snug fit and cut the pieces out using a laser cutter. I then used spray mount to hold the pieces together. Each ’box’ has a top and a bottom held closed with white elastics. It’s a pretty simple concept, but we are pretty simple people."

We would like to thank her for sharing her tips as well as her DIY project! Can't wait to get started on making our own for the very firs time, and when we get to it, we'll definitely post our work here on the blog to show you the end results!

If you were inspired and have made your own slimline ring case, don't forget to come back and share it with us! Happy Planning!

Saving Your Seats

Okay let's be real here everyone....it is quite obvious as to where the bride and groom sit at their own wedding reception. Many are known to go the traditional way and have a head table or sweetheart table, either way, the newly married couple usually knows where they should sit. And of course no guest in their right mind would dare sit there!

I took the liberty of researching some bride & groom signs for wedding receptions just to see what creative ideas were out there. Here is what we came up with.....

It's very simple and cute and it's another way to be able to personalize your wedding incorporating your colors, theme, and etc.

We love that it doesn't always have to be over the top (unless of course that's what you want)....it can just be simple, clean, and elegant!

Question for you......

How are you saving your seats at your wedding reception?
