Color Inspiration -- BLUE

Something old, something new, something borrowed... you know the saying! I'll make sure to give you ideas for all of those along the way, but for now, I am going to address the 'Something Blue'. In this case, the entire wedding!

You can take the color blue in so many different directions: French Country, Nautical, or veer off into the oh-so-trendy Tiffany blue. This time around, I am taking a straight-forward classic approach to blue details.

Here are some of the special ideas in the images below:
Christian Louboutin blue soles – it is rumored that they have stopped producing these precious shoes for high-style brides, BUT I recently saw a bride with blue soles! (as of Fall 2008)

Blue lighting – creates a chic look and a relaxed mood. Use white flowers and linens to pick up the blue light.

Even if you don’t throw the garter, wear one – for tradition’s sake!

I love custom details. Create your own stamps at

  1. Hi,

    I work with Brickfish, a social media marketing network, and we help brands spread their messages virally via their customers. We have just launched a new online effort with Amsale to help them take their “Do Your Friends a Favor” campaign to the social web.
    The “Do Your Friends a Favor” campaign asks women to share their dress disaster stories; whether it was a horrible bridesmaid's dress or just a major fashion faux pas, Amsale wants to know all about it! It’s easy to enter; your readers can simply follow a few easy steps. Here are the details:
    • Entrants upload photos of their dress disasters
    • Entrants then select an Amsale dress they would’ve rather worn
    • Entrants can even use the "Anonymator" tool to make their worst dress moments anonymous
    • Entrants then share their entries with each other via social media to get votes and reviews
    • Entrants can also make their entries go viral by sharing across the Internet with friends and peers via their social networks
    • Grand Prize: One winner, selected by Amsale from the top 250 highest scoring entries, will win a trip for 2 to New York City for two nights including roundtrip airfare and hotel. Plus, you'll have the opportunity to meet with Amsale and enjoy a $2,500 shopping spree at the Amsale Flagship Salon.
    • Runner-Up: One winner, selected by Amsale from the top 250 highest scoring entries, will receive a $1,500 shopping spree to the Amsale Flagship Salon in NYC.
    • Most Viral: One winner, selected by Amsale from the top 250 Most Viral entries, will receive a $1,500 shopping spree to the Amsale Flagship Salon in NYC.
    • Sign-Up Sweepstakes: Six winners, who sign-up for the sweepstakes by filling out the form in the Campaign Highlights area of the Amsale “Do Your Friends A Favor” Campaign or who opt-in from the Submit Entry tab, will be randomly selected to win an Amsale dress, valued up to $400, plus a DVD copy of the movie "27 Dresses."

    Here’s an example of an entrant who’s fashion faux pas was wearing a gigantic girl scout cookie!:
