Isn’t that what all this is about anyway?? After the wedding your can frame each of your vows to have forever! Tip #2: Do Something Different -Throw out the rules that most couples follow for their wedding and do something different.  How about have your Cocktail Hour before the ceremony?

Olive+French Blue

Choosing Fall hues with Olive and French Blue is a perfect way to add a sophisticated twist to the traditional Chocolate Brown and Blue. Although beautiful when combined, using alternative family colors are a way to think outside the box and add a custom touch to your color palette. With the color and the word olive you can add playful wedding favors like small bottles of personalized olive oil, jars of olives or serve both as a social hour appetizer. Continuing with the olive theme add a wine tasting table include a Sommelier who can educate guest on specialty wines from local or international vineyards, and pair them with different olive oils from across the country. A great way to make sure this idea makes an impact, asks your wedding consultant to assist you with choosing the right wine professionals/vendors for you. A good wedding consultant will have a list of local wineries in the area that can assist. By adding French Blue you add a pop of color without over powering, creating a chic and sophisticated atmosphere. These two colors together make for a unique and pleasing combination with endless wedding possibilities. Don’t be afraid to be creative, broaden your perspective and allow your wedding consultant to guide you in creating everlasting memories for years to come. Eventfully,...
