A bright orange wedding invitation tells your guests your wedding will be fun from the very first moment. A soft, muted wedding service and quiet reception wouldn’t usually have bright orange as the predominant wedding color. Balance the fun, bright color selection with a vintage and timeless damask wedding invitation suite like this one by Modern Girl Invitations.
The classic pattern in a playful, bright color gives these invitations a modern feel. And the line of piping down the side would be an easy detail to include in the rest of your wedding details to tie your entire look together. Complete the set and receive 10% off your entire order – and as always, you can count on free shipping.
Love the patter but aren’t sure such a bright color would work for your wedding? You can customize this invitation using our color palette. If you have any questions, just contact us!
I found this holiday gift idea in Real Simple magazine and I love it. Make your own infused vodka. You can make any flavor you want and it is so simple to do! Put the fruits and vodka into little glass jars to make it both delicious and adorable. Giving this as a favor to guests could be time consuming and not necessarily appropriate for all of your guests, so incorporate it into your reception instead. You can change this holiday gift into a reception table centerpiece by hanging a number from the ribbon instead of a gift tag. Make a different flavor for each table. It’s cute, flavorful and a great ice breaker for any guests at the table that might not know each other. It also encourages your guests to mingle with guests at other tables to try the different flavors.
Infused Vodka Bottles
It only takes a week to prepare and would allow you to cut down the number of flowers in your centerpieces to make things a bit cheaper for those working on a wedding budget.
Even if all of your guests do not drink, these are great decorative pieces. Pick fruit, vegetable and bean flavors in the color scheme of your wedding. Make lemon, pineapple, mango, jalapeno, green pepper, and lime for a yellow and green summer wedding. Try cinnamon, vanilla, espresso, raspberry, cranberry, and cherry for an autumn or winter wedding.
Plus the leftovers would be nice to sample while opening all those wedding gifts the next day 🙂
Cupcakes are delicious and adorable. I don’t know why, but everything is more irresistible when it’s miniature. They’re great for every celebration, and now more modern brides are choosing towers of cupcakes over the traditional wedding cake. They’re easy to serve and less expensive than an elaborate tiered creation. Cupcake wedding towers are a no fuss modern alternative. And you can have the bakery make a smaller traditional wedding cake to save for your first year anniversary.
Decorate the stand and tiers to look cohesive like this tropical cupcake tower. Also cupcakes allow you to have different flavors and include all the elements of your color scheme in a unique way.

Groom’s cakes are a tradition in southern American weddings but modern brides are bringing the tradition back to life. Weddings can often be all about the bride but a groom’s cake is a fun way to remind him that you remember it is about the two of you. Plus shopping for a groom’s cake is a great way to add a little fun and adventure to what can sometimes be a very stressful planning process.
The cake is usually designed to his interests and served as dessert at the rehearsal dinner. Think about his hobbies, favorite items or just choose something that will make him laugh. Keep it fun and personal like this motorcycle groom’s cake or even this pacman themed cake.

Groom’s cakes were made popular in Steel Magnolia’s which showcased a bleeding armadillo. If you do an armadillo cake, keep the quirky detail that makes it appear like it’s bleeding with either red jelly layers or by using the southern red velvet cake inside. Sounds so delicious 🙂
