Happy Monday! We are kicking off the week with this creative spin on the traditional paper and pen guest book. Instead, check out this fun wine bottle guest book kit we spotted over at EV Creations. Their special kit includes personalized, waterproof wine bottle labels that easily adhere to your favorite fine wine. You'll also receive special pens for marking, so your guests' names will appear bright and vivid on the bottles. Save the bottles to enjoy as you toast to your anniversaries to come! What a brilliant idea!

Instead of using the traditional flowers down your ceremony aisle runner, why not mix it up a bit by adding untamed posies to a wooden flower frame? You can then echo the look with an abundant bouquet.
At your reception, you can recycle your makeshift garden and turn it into an escort-card display. Have your friends place the aisle runners on your cocktail hour, where they can then serve as a backdrop for your name cards. Yet another use-at the end of the night, take them home. You can use them in your backyard as trellises.
We've all been there - your guests will be arriving any minute and you are frazzled about making sure the table is set properly. Mrs. Lilien has come to your rescue with this complete breakdown to assist you in setting the perfect table. This is so great! Keep a copy in the kitchen for your next dinner party or holiday celebration and wow your guests.
What's new in bridesmaid dresses? This week we will be featuring the newest looks in wedding party fashion. We wanted to kick off the week with a few note-worthy beach frocks (since we wish we were at the beach right now)!
I am always looking for new vendors to introduce to my clients, ones that are known for their great expertise and impeccable experience. When planning a wedding (or other event), it is very important to match the bride and groom with a vendor that is compatible with their personalities and will suit their needs.
This week, I'd like to spotlight a salon in Boston located on one of the most sophisticated and glamourous streets in the city, Acote (pronounced "aqua-tae"). As wedding season kicks into high gear, every bride needs the perfect hair stylist. Salon Acote, located at 132 Newbury Street in Boston, features paramount experience, as well as a knowledgeable, in-house wedding coordinator who can help plan and provide assistance for the entire bridal party.
Seasoned salon stylist, Danielle Choolijan, was recently featured in the wedding issue of Boston Magazine. In addition to specific bridal updo or blowout stylists, make-up artists are also available at Salon Acote. If a bride already has a make-up artist chosen, she can bring them into the salon to work upstairs in the loft, perfect for special events like a wedding day.
Along with having such wonderful ideas, Martha Stewart Weddings offers great suggestions with color palettes. I think this color combination of pink and gold is perfect for summer weddings and parties. The colors don't need to be all the same, just keep them in the same color family.
Our recent find of this subtle and super easy-to-do in blue: a something blue hem! This is such a clever idea for sneaking a something blue into your dress. Simply ask your seamstress to add the wedding day as an extra seam under your hem for a stress-free sew.
We just love Yummy Cupcakes & Cakes for our daily dose of wedding cake inspiration. This 2-tier cake has a timeless appeal with a neutral color scheme. Its simply stunning in its combination of simplicity meets unique detail.
If you are getting married abroad (or even if you aren't but you think your cocktail hour could use a little flair), here's an intoxicating idea: Consider incorporating locally made spirits into your drink list - maybe as an ingredient in a signature sipper or to spritz up a classic cocktail. Continue reading on for three liquors that will infuse your big day with a sense of place. Having a blast at your wedding, and working in some local culture? We will drink to that!
Sint Maarten/St. Martin: Guavaberry Liqueur
This half-French, half-Dutch Caribbean isle is know for its guavaberries - small, cranberry-size fruit islanders are made for. They use them in jams, pies, and even their own boot-legged booze. Who knew!
Similar to rum, Brazil's most popular booze is the main ingredient in the country's national cocktail, the calipirnha. It's made from sugarcane, which lends it a distinct, earthy sweetness.
You've heard of tequila, but how about its close cousin mezcal, which packs a smoky, fiery punch? Though this spirit has been around for years, right now its experiencing a pop-culture resurgence with bar-slash-art-spaces dedicated to it, articles written about it, and even celebrities coming out with their own versions of it.
