Whether you’re lusting after an outdoor wedding intertwined with the grape vines or an indoor reception hosted in a wine cellar, there is something beyond romantic about a vineyard themed wedding. It’s naturally antique, timeless and universally enjoyable (if you’re guests don’t drink, the atmosphere will still be gorgeous).
how cute would your wedding pictures be?
How can you pull this off? There are a few simple details you can add to your wedding planning that will make this vineyard wedding ceremony or reception perfect.
Print your invitations in white and purple or deep burgundy to play up the wines’ natural colors. Create custom wedding wine labels and send your guests home with a sampler bottle instead of traditional favors. Decorate with grapes, wheat or any rich, natural accessories you can find to play up your natural surroundings, whether in a vineyard or a wine filled basement. And play up the naturally indulgent theme of a vineyard wedding with a rich, chocolate wedding cake – no snack options will be necessary.
In a black and white wedding, the white should not be forgotten. And this venue is to die for. This Laguna Beach destination wedding has an amazing view, but brides don’t worry – the essence of this wedding venue could be recreated anywhere. Whether you hire professional or attempted to do it yourself, this fabric draped wedding tent could be your wedding venue.
I love how romantic the fabric and flower petal aisle are. Plus the huge vases of flowers at both ends of the aisles are enough to convince me. Toss containers of white flowers and rented white furniture everywhere and you could create the crisp, clean white wedding venue wherever you and your guests may be. And all that white really makes the sharp black details pop.
It’s the peak of summer and I can’t get my mind off of beach weddings. Beach weddings in the summer – how particularly inventive of me. Creative judging aside, I found some amazing beach wedding set-ups. When you plan a beach wedding the venue is the easiest detail to pick, it’s sprucing that up to make your wedding unique that is the difficult part. You can’t just add flowers to the ends of the pews and sprinkle some petals down the aisle. You literally have to make the pews and aisle from scratch. That’s great for your creative freedom but not-so-great for your continually growing wedding to-do list. So here are a few beach wedding settings to get your creative juices flowing.

Check out my latest photo inspiration board (I told you, there will be oh so many more to come now) in, you guessed it, red, white and blue! A Fourth of July wedding sounds so laid back and fun. An outdoor ceremony, barbecue style reception and dancing underneath the fireworks – sounds like a great way to spend America’s birthday to me.
And a Fourth of July wedding doesn’t mean you need to dive straight into the tacky and predictable holiday décor. Simply picking out major elements in solid shades of red and blue can be enough homage to Uncle Sam if you’re getting married that day. If you want to fully embrace the holiday in your theme, try putting mini flag toothpicks in your reception food, creating a tower of red, white and blue cupcakes, and creating some do-it-yourself star garlands to decorate your wedding venue.
Hope you enjoyed the long weekend!
