What's Hot for Spring

We will be introducing what we feel are the hottest wedding trends for Spring 2007 over the next few weeks. These ideas came from researching various fashion designers, going to the "bridal fashion week" in New York, listening to what our brides were requesting and looking through many magazines!!!
If you are a bride who wants to do something unique and different for your wedding, we recommend incorporating one of these trends into your wedding. It doesn't matter what your wedding style is, you can incorporate these ideas. From traditional to modern events, each idea can be personalized to your style!

Think of everything that passes through your guests hands. From the save the date to the favors you hand out at the end of the evening. The paper products make a difference in the overall feel of your event. The tone of the event is set when your guests receive the save the date. Be as creative as you like with your save the dates. It is a great idea to begin incorporating certain colors, designs, monograms etc. into your paper products from the beginning.
We LOVE CECI New York to take care of all our creative invitation needs! Lisa Hoffman is very talented and easy to work with. She can come up with a theme and bring your event to life with custom designs of the invitations, favors, labels.... check out her website at!

Please visit the link below to see the work we recently did with CECI New York. We were asked by D Wedding Magazine to put together "Table Scapes" for their current issue. Of course we relied on Lisa at CECI to design our placecards, menu cards and invitations.
We also wanted to share with you some samples of our past work with CECI New York. The pictures below contain all the "customized paper products" Lisa designed for a fabulous wedding we planned in September. The theme was "Tropical and Fun." You can see the consistency in the designs and colors throughout all the items. I had a guest pull me aside at the wedding and say, "Oh my gosh, the invitations were to die set the mood for the wedding and we knew it was going to be a great event when we held the wedding invitation in our hands."

Guests received an RSVP packet that had luggage tags, guestroom keys and an itinerary of events for the entire wedding weekend. At the ceremony the program was shaped as a fan that continued the tropical theme of the wedding. There were 4 main colors carried througout the event. Everything was color blocked from the bridesmaid's dresses to the flowers, linens, place cards and menus on each table.

Welcome bags were filled with goodies such as monogrammed towels with each guests initials, customized water bottles, a deck of customized playing cards and some of the bride and groom's favorite snacks.
If you want an event to remember....start with the Save the Date and carry out your theme through everything paper product the guests touch.
Happy Planning!
