Matrimonial Mondays: It's All in the Details

Here at the ENVI design studio, our resident blogger has decided to create a special theme for specific days of the week. Debuting today, Monday, October 26, 2009, we will start to cater our blog directly to these specific themes.

Matrimonial Mondays: All about's all in the details.

One of the newest trends in Wedding Gowns for the end of 2009 and 2010 is 50's chic. Have you noticed that the fashion of the 50's is sparking around us in all areas and facets of life? Tea Length skirts, Tulle, and high necklines make way for a 50's flair all around.

Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

Having your closest friends, family, or girls to stand next to you and support your nuptials is something that all brides anticipate for their wedding day. Choosing them is half the battle. NOW, instead of just sending a quick text, email, or a phone call away as most friends are, brides are using cute and innovative ways to ask these special ladies to stand beside them and support the marriage they are embarking upon.

I was browsing around on ETSY and found a picture of a Bridesmaid invitation that I thought was so cute I just had to share:

Isn't that just the cutest? It is for sale here for $3.00/ea .... Plus you can add some embellishments like Swarovski Crystals, Ribbons, and Flowers for about a quarter each.

Wise-Brooks Wedding

This past Saturday, October 17, 2009 on Sweetest Day, I had the pleasure of finally seeing a year long vision come to fruition! The nuptials of Wendy Wise and Harris Brooks, Jr.

In Atlanta, Georgia at Lambert Place (800 Lambert Drive, Atlanta, GA) the lovely couple exchanged vows at 11:30 a.m. Their colors were mocha and sage. It turned out beautifully!

Going against the Grain ~ Non Traditional Seasonal Decor

This is my favorite season of the year. The Fall foliage, leaves changing colors, the weather is so nice (well sometimes). I absolutely love it! Aside from that, there are a few ideas that I have seen that can add to the interiors with the theme of the season. Using colors such as burnt oranges, cranberry, chocolate, just does something to warm the space up. However, there are instances where the traditional color palatte just isn't what our client wants, then we have to put our creative hats and drink our creativity juice to come up with something that will not only be simple to find the items we're looking for, but will add a spark and twinkle in the eye.
