Gold and silver are perfectly sparkly and are making a statement this year in the design world. As for weddings this colour palette works extremely well for chair covers, table decor and much more! WTrendsinvitations2

2. Pale Pink

Any shade of pink works in your wedding and will always be a classic colour trend. Depending on the combination it can be made sweet and girly, fun and colourful or whichever style you’re heading in.

Hello Glamourites,

I always keep a small folder of wedding inspiration ideas and styles that I would love to put into my own future event planning career and transform into my own creation. These are some gorgeous shots and tips to be done at an upcoming wedding! What is one of your favourite wedding touches? xx Glamour Planner

This shot {and dress} are to die for! I want one of these pictures where you get an overall view of the dress.  wonderfultouches4For a vintage touch add some lace ribbon to the table setting, or other types of ribbon depending on theme.

The Date

26 Sep

Hi Glamourites,

My apologies for not posting lately at all, I have been sick in bed for the the past three days and barely able to much of anything. As you know one of my passions is wedding planning and am always on the lookout for the latest trend or unique way of doing it your special way. Here are some examples of “Save The Date” cards that are a little different than the norm. Enjoy xx Glamour Planner

For a city couple or big city wedding this would be a neat perspective! SaveTheDatecab

I can’t resist how cute this balloon idea is, may be a little cheesy but very creative!    SaveTheDateballoons

Back in the day….

20 Jul

Back in the day when a tea break meant a major house production with fresh table linens, 5 piece cutlery, the finest of baked goods, and of course, your prettiest afternoon gown. While watching my new favourite show, Downton Abbey I am surprised how everything is taken very seriously and carried out with such perfection! That sort of formal attention to detail doesn’t seem to exist now-a-days and often the little things are not given the same consideration they used to.  For instance, when one of the gentlemen from the show wore the wrong dinner jacket for supper, it was evident that this was a faux pas. Sometimes I think I would enjoy that attention to detail; ensuring that every little piece was picture perfect when preparing a meal, setting the table, making a bed or even shining the silver. This show puts me in the mood to go back in time and experience it all first hand, which I realize is obviously not possible! However it does inspire me to try and accomplish the feel by throwing a Downton Abbey tea or dinner party! Here are some picture inspirations I found that may help to recreate a similar atmosphere.

Let me know if you give it a go. xx Glamour Planner

I only wish I could eat dinner like this every evening: silver candelabras, 4 different drinking glasses, individual salt and pepper, and of course, the delight of being served so graciously! I could go on!

Here is some fashion inspiration from Lissa Alexandra Photography on a shoot for vintage weddings but these dresses would also be adorable for an afternoon tea.

I couldn’t resist posting theses adorable “Downton Abbey” style sugar cookies, I can’t image the time it took to make them but they would be ideal for an afternoon tea!

THE outfit

15 Jul

Hello Glamourites,

After all this time I can’t believe I have yet to do a post on Weddings! So here it is, my first post related to my ultimate dream job -wedding planner. I thought to myself today what is more important than the bride’s wardrobe and how she looks on her wedding day….well nothing! This is dedicated to everything the bride  is wearing as well as her accessories. Enjoy xx

THE DRESS ~nothing can top this so we’ll start there..

This glam show-stopping gown is fit for a fairy queen. The intricate gems and beading on the bodice draws the eye upwards towards the bride’s face as well as creating a sleek cinched in waistline. The ballgown skirt makes this every girl’s dream dress.

weddingoutfit-dressDREAM TRAIN! Especially if you are having a simpler dress in the front or top portion, having a dramatic train is a gorgeous aspect. When walking down the aisle, this dress makes a real statement after you have passed them on your way to the altar. A ruffled train, almost mimicking the look of large rose petals, creates the ultimate drama!
weddingoutfit-dress2Another important item that you don’t want to overlook is the bouquet holder as it compliments the thought that has gone into the flowers themselves. This sparkly gem will show off the flowers and appear like glitter in the bride’s hands.
weddingoutfit-bouquetholderWe cannot of course forget about the shoes….after you have chosen your stunning, yet comfortable heels, it is fun to add a little pizzazz. These clip on broaches can be added on later for the ceremony if you have an alternate dress and want to show off the shoes!
weddingoutfit-heelsIf you are going with a more understated dress it is exciting to chose from the variety of fabulous veiling they now have available. This particular veil is interesting how it is bunched to one side and now balanced creating an alluring effect.

wedding-theveilNow I know this may not be the bride’s decision but I can’t help but post this stunning ring!! The ring of course completes the wedding day’s outfit.
