Trend Alert! Chalkboard Weddings

Chalkboards are looking to be the hottest new wedding trend for 2013/14. Simple yet versatile, the once neglected chalkboard is back and popping up in weddings left, right and centre…From handwritten signs welcoming guests, to carefully crafted calligraphy on a seating plan!

I’ve recently had a growing number of requests from brides asking if I can design some chalkboard-style invitations to complement their theme, so I decided to create a full, customisable chalkboard stationary set. View the full range or get your FREE quote from my Wedding Invitation Website.

Wedding Planning Shop {sneak peek}

Happy Hump Day! I hope your week is going well. I’m a little late posting this week as I’ve been busy working away on some new designs so I can launch my very own Wedding Planning Shop…It’s all very exciting!

Anyway, I thought I’d give you a little peek of what you can expect to see available in my Etsy store . I hope to have some more items listed within the next two weeks, so watch this space and stay tuned for updates.

Colour Scheme: A touch of Gold

colourschemegoldThis week’s wedding colour scheme was inspired by a question raised through our ‘Ask the Expert’ feature:

“I’m planning my gold themed wedding, I am finding it hard to piece things together, what I mean by that is I am getting the cake, decorations, dresses, ornaments etc all from different places, so of course not everything will look the same or similar for that matter. So, how can I make it so that everything flows together? I don’t want my wedding to appear as if I have literally copied and pasted random bits and bobs together with only one common aspect…Gold.”

While it is completely fine to use colour as a theme it can be hard to tie all the different elements together. My suggestion would be to introduce a specific theme to your wedding, such as a beach or rustic theme, or keep it simple with a pattern or shape, that way you don’t just have gold as the one common aspect and it becomes much easier to coordinate the invitations, favours, flowers, dresses etc. With gold, less is definitely more, so don’t overdo it, team it with white or other neutral colours.

Keep calm and marry on!

Colour Scheme: Soft Pinks & Succulent Greens

Pink & Green Colour SchemeYippee it’s the weekend!!

Sorry if I got your hopes up, I know it’s still only Thursday, but I’m taking the day off tomorrow and heading up to the Bay of Islands with my fiance Adam for a long weekend of recuperation after a hectic couple of weeks. I’ve also just realised that this Saturday will be exactly 1 year until our wedding and coincidentally we are going to be in Russell, where Adam proposed! Squeeeel!!

We’re are getting married back in the UK and want to have a Kiwi/travel theme so I’ll be taking lots of photos this weekend and keeping a keen eye out for all things Kiwi that I can incorporate into the wedding – follow me on Instagram & Facebook and help me out by submitting your Kiwiana ideas using #kiwianawedding. Speaking of wedding inspiration, I am loving the use of succulents, which inspired me to post another colour scheme. The soft greens and pink work so well together – don’t you agree?

Keep calm and marry on!

Pink, Yellow and Gray Colour Scheme

Happy Monday, I hope you had a great weekend.

I didn’t have much of a weekend as I was busy event managing at The Food Show, Auckland from Thursday to Sunday and then back in the office today. I’m feeling a bit dazed, confused and downright exhausted! But the sun is shining and spring is fast approaching, which is why I’ve decided to put together a colour board that can brighten up even the most mundane Monday afternoon. I hope you like!Pink, Yellow & GrayKeep calm and marry on,
Jacqui.
