Color Me Beautiful: Stripes

Comments: 1

Making their marks in fashion and decor, stripes are adding some straight-laced modernity to weddings moving into 2012.  We are loving the stark contrast of deep hues against softer shades, but for the bride who prefers subtlety, we adore a great light on light stripe (see the BHLDN gown below for a lovely example!).  We are looking forward to seeing this trend embolden tablescapes and saturate wedding details in color.

Forget Me Not Friday: Signing Contracts

Comments: 0

Contracts, Contracts, Contracts!

You’ve found the perfect photographer, a swinging band, and a florist whose arrangements make you swoon.  You may think you’ve got every detail for your dream day all buttoned up, but you’re not quite there! Do you have a signed contract?

Even though you may have discussed your details multiple times over the phone or via email, be sure to get a signed contract from each of your vendors. Typically, a vendor will ask for your signature first, and will return a countersigned contract to you to hold the date.  If your vendor has not returned the countersigned contract, don’t hesitate to ask for it two or three times if necessary. Remember: No matter how gorgeous the florals are, nothing really counts until you have received back  a counter-signed contract binding you and your vendor.
