Spring Inspired Weddings <3

Dear Loves, 
Guess what.. it’s finally SPRING TIME!! It’s only THE best season ever!!!! This is obviously my most favored season only because we get such perfect weather (SoCal love<3)  (its not too hot and not too cold), the flowers are blossoming, the sunsets at 9 🙂 , and everything is absolutely colorful! All the colors that reflect the sunshine is now in season. Everyday is a sunny day in spring.. the only down falls are spring cleaning (yuck) and of course.. spring allergies. But those are just short term downfalls. Anyhow, today’s inspiration is SPRING SEASON!!!
If you love colors and sunshine with breezy weather, this is the wedding season fit for you. Dress up your day with PASTEL color linens, PASTEL bridesmaids dresses, PASTEL colored flowers, (peonies :)), PASTEL EVERYTHING!!! Ok maybe not everything :)..if its not an Easter Themed Wedding…lets not go crazy with the PASTELS. Soft colors are definitely colors you want to go for when it comes to a spring wedding. Keep it simple by accenting your primary eye catchers like your centerpieces, favors, bridesmaids dresses, wedding cake.. whatever you want attention on the most, accent those with your primary wedding colors. Leave the rest the neutral and or white. Too much pastel will look like an Easter egg hunt rather than your wedding.
 Here are just a few PINTEREST idesas to think about..
Belle the Magazine-- spring weddings
Belle the Magazine 2-- spring weddings
 Beverly Roybal--Spring weddings
everythingfab.com spring wedding
the roche studio spring weddings
The softer the color the brighter the photo. So there you go.. my Spring Inspired Wedding board. There’s so much you can do with these colors and ideas. Make sure not to overkill it with those PASTELS though,
Happy Spring Coloring,

A Minty Fresh Green Wedding

March 15, 2013
A Minty Fresh Green Wedding
A Minty Fresh Green Wedding by bchhuor featuring shoes
Dear Loves, 
Second post for the week.. crazy right?? hehe .. I’m up late trying to keep up with life outside of work.. hopefully it pays off..
Anyhow.. today’s inspiration comes from St. Patty’s Day that’s coming up. (don’t forget to wear green or risk getting pinched a few times :)) Lately I’ve been seeing a whole lot of mint green everywhere.. I first started loving mint green back in grade school.. and kids thought I was weird cause that color just wasn’t in then.. if I could go back in time and stick my tongue out at every one of them I totally would right now.. 🙂 just kidding.. 😉 but on a serious note.. I’m so happy that Mint green is now the it color in fashion, decor, and now weddings!!! When the color green comes up.. we all think its hard to match because its such a loud and bold color that whatever color scheme we try to match it with, it wouldn’t match well at all. Lets think again.. if you have a bold color, always tone it down with a softer pastel color or if worst comes to worst.. opt for the nude or taupe.. Trust me.. those colors will always be the go-to-run-to colors for a very long time.
I’m so in love with this green I can’t express to you how excited I was to make this post for you. Mint green can be used in many different ways with many neutral colors.
First off ladies.. your bridesmaid’s dresses..
Don’t be afraid to play with style.. Short mint green dresses can be seen as a 50’s dress (which is super cute) and long maxi mint green dresses.. well some styles can be pulled off by every height.. but some should stay on taller gals.. only because the color is so soft and bright that it can take away from your figure and drain you in all that mint. But play with the different styles.
Decor:
You definitely want to keep the mint green to a minimal because you want to showcase all your favors and flowers.. not just the mint green.. again.. keep it simple so that you don’t take the attention away from all the other details other than the green.
Grooms and Groomsmen:
Grey Grey Grey!!!!!! Keep it as soft as possible… Black can come off too harsh that it distracts from the mint green. Grey is such an awesome color because it matches every color without making it look so loud. Bow tie it, skinny it up, or just a traditional tie will do for your charming men.
Favors and all the other good stuff:
Be creative and think of what Mint Green reminds you of..cupcakes? ice cream? mints?.. Mint Green is seen as a rustic type of theme.. almost shabby chic with just very minimal shabby in it. Play with your ideas and you’ll come up with something cute and minty 🙂
This color is best with an outdoor daytime event rather than a night time reception only because the color is so soft it wouldn’t stand out as nice in pictures at night than it would during the daytime.
So there you go ladies and gents!!!:)
Be inspired and get creative…
Happy MINTY FRESHNESS ❤

Escort Tables

Dear Loves,

Life just keeps throwing you surprises and more paperwork.. and then time just flies by as if there’s not enough time in day for any of us right?. Sorry for the delay again.

Anyhow, today’s inspirations comes from my Wedding Consulting Certification course I am currently attending at Cal Poly Pomona. (I think I mentioned that I was on my way to getting certified right?.. if not.. well now you know :)) The last few weeks we have been focusing on Escort Tables. If you do not know what Escort Tables are.. it is the table where your name cards are placed with seating arrangements and guest sign ins. There is always a story line or theme behind each wedding, that’s how visions and creations are made. So with each storyline, there must be a vision told to your audience. Escort tables can be a storyteller of the couple or a vision of the wedding theme. Read the rest of this entry ?

2013: Year of the Snake

February 18, 2013
2013 Chinese New Year.. Year of the Snake
2013 Chinese New Year.. Year of the Snake by bchhuor on Polyvore
Dear Loves, 
Sorry for the posting “delays”.. Life happens as you all know it 🙂
Anyhow.. today’s inspiration is… CHINESE NEW YEAR! Happy New Year to all my fellow Asians out there and to those who celebrated the day with us just because :). This year is the year of the Snake which means ” The Snake is the intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animal Signs. They are attractive people who take cries with ease and do not become flustered easily. They are graceful people, exciting and dark at the same time.” (more info on the Snake and other Chinese Horoscopes can be found on http://www.usbridalguide.com).
Each and every New Years Eve, my family and I will always get together for lunch and dinner with homemade goodies made by Chef mommy and Sous Chef sister. Always great food with great company and of course all the unmarried kids await for the most anticipated “RED ENVELOPE”. If you guys have no idea what this Red Envelope is, (shame on you 🙂 I kid I kid!!) the Red Envelops is a tradition passed down from ancestors to ancestors. Given by the Elders to the children in the family, each envelop represents great future, health and prosperity. It could possibly mean other things.. but from what I know that is what the Red Envelops mainly represent. Inside these envelops are, almost always, money with whatever amount the adult decides to throw in. These envelops are given to children and young adults up until either they are married or are 21 depending on what they’re parents believe in. Me.. well lets just say I’m not 21 nor am I married (not even close:(  ).. it’s a win win situation for me 🙂 Read the rest of this entry ?

Vera Wang Fall 2012 Collection (Black Wedding Gowns)

January 30, 2013
Vera Wang Fall Collection 2012 (Black Wedding Gowns)
Vera Wang Fall Collection 2012 (Black Wedding Gowns) by bchhuor on Polyvore
Dear Loves, 
Today’s inspiration comes from designer Wedding Gown herself, Vera Wang. I was watching a show last night and this bride wanted a Vera Wang dress more than anything and then I remembered seeing Vera’s line of Black Bridal Dresses. At first when I saw the collection.. there were many questions and comments running through my mind. Then I found myself really at ahh with this collection. Something about this line really changed my mind and point of view of this collection  (besides the obvious of course :)). It’s not as bad as it seems or sounds. Her cut and detailed lines really soften the harsh dark color making the gown just as sweet and elegant as her other lines. If you really take a look at the dress and focus on the art work that is done here.. you can really see how elegant this collection really is. Yes its black and I’m not sure who would actually wear a Black Wedding Dress on their special day but if there are any brides out there who really wants a NON TRADITIONAL wedding gown.. consider Vera Wang’s line please!! I don’t think any other Black Wedding Dress will be as gorgeous and as impressive as this line. Like I said.. the textures, detailing and lining of this unique idea makes up for the Black.
On the bright side.. if you do decide to go with a Black Wedding Dress, this gives you a chance to be more creative with all the other fun stuff. Since black goes with everything, be creative and get colorful with this style. Choose dark contrasting colors to play up your centerpieces and your bouquets. Add rhinestones to complete the elegance of the wedding. But don’t go crazy with the dark color or the darkness of the theme cause if may turn out to be a Halloween party or wedding (unless that’s what you were going for.. then cheers to you  :)). Definitely consider using as much rhinestones as possible.. that will soften the harsh dark colors used in the wedding.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE David Tutera and I’m always watching his show for tips and advice.. So to all my future dark goth-like brides.. here are a few tips to plan your big day from David Tutera himself.
Take it from the pro himself.. otherwise you risk turning your wedding into a Halloween Party.
Hope you ladies enjoyed this Black Wedding Gown segment.. remember to be creative and imaginative.
Good Luck and Have fun ❤
Happy Imaginations ❤

Candlelight Romance

January 29, 2013

Candlelight Centerpiece

Dear Loves,

Happy Monday to all. It’s January 28 in Sunny California..Took the weekend off for some downtime and so should you. 🙂  Today’s inspiration comes from the Bridal Show that I worked at this weekend at the Hilton Hotel in Ontario. Some people say they would never work weekends cause that’s they’re relax, veg out days but I say, if its something worth waking up to, I’m DOWN! and this I was totally down for. Just in case you didn’t know, to all the brides who live in Southern California, once to twice a month, there is always a Bridal Show located in different Hotels or Convention Centers. If you or you know a bride who needs extra inspiration, help, or fun, come out to the Bridal Shows near you and come see whats new, gorgeous and the latest wedding trends. You also get to experience a wedding gown fashion show, free tastings and giveaways. It’s always fun to see whats going on in the wedding world with other brides just like you.

Anyways back on track… currently I am working at a Wedding/Event planning group and our booth, for some great reason, received the most compliments and votes despite how crammed the entire event was. (It was crammed in a good way of course.. brides + entourage + fashion show + 32 different booths to choose from.. go figure.. ). After talking to these brides and seeing and hearing what they were looking for, they all complimented on the centerpiece that was displayed on our table. (The photo above is the centerpiece that we created for the expo). Many brides now are leaning towards this candlelight centerpiece look/style. This creative creation alone speaks for itself.. don’t you agree??

Flashback with me for a minute..
