Current and Seasonal Wedding Decor Ideas are Everywhere

If you keep your wedding eye open throughout your planning process, you can really find beautiful ideas for decor and design - especially within the season of your own wedding - everywhere. Window and in-store merchandise displays, advertisements, restaurant table settings - it's all fair game.

I am constantly on the lookout for ideas. I am in the midst of a move and just took some time to look through a pile of catalogs that has been building while I've been otherwise occupied, and immediately found these two lovely tables from a Pottery Barn catalog that I added to my collection of tear-outs.

I've seen apples, lemons, limes...lotsa fruit centerpieces. But I think these pear and almond centerpieces are sophisticated and perfect for a fall wedding.


This advertisement for the store's bridal registry program is so modern and lovely. What a beautiful way to use the bright, fresh green color of the Mums' stems to break up the clean white table!

Wedding Q&A Thursday - Shower Invites in a Destination Situation

Q: Hey Tricia, Here's a question for the girls @ TH&C to bounce around... Is it improper etiquette/tacky to invite people to a bridal shower if they are NOT being invited to a destination wedding, but they ARE being invited to the large, 200+ person reception in my home town one month following the wedding?

My Aunt wants to throw a couples shower in Louisville for my fiance and I, in February, prior to the wedding in March and big reception my parents are hosting in Louisville in April. I don't want to put anyone off, but it would be nice for the said guests (mostly extended family) to meet my fiance in person - and vice versa - before the wedding/reception. They are extended family, so the majority are not being invited to Savannah in an effort to keep the actual wedding smaller/intimate. But they will be invited to the second reception in Louisville, which will include full meal, open bar, cake, favors, etc. In other words, all of the "perks" guests get in return for going to a wedding! What are your opinions?

A: Thank you for the question! I love it when our brides show that they read our blog - it reminds me that we should be blogging more!

Tricia and I both say yes! "Said guests" are not invited to your Savannah wedding, but you are - pretty much - having a second wedding in Louisville. You are going out of your way to have a big, inclusive party - that's not something you have to do. It's generous and speaks boldly of your intention to include everyone in the celebration. If any of your extended family members do feel somewhat slighted by not being invited to Savannah for the destination event, I think that an invitation to a shower would actually make them feel more included in your marriage, not "put off."

Readers, this could possibly be seen as an etiquette grey-area since it's an a-typical wedding situation. What do you think? Are you planning something similar - and how are you handling it?

Four Weddings and an Engagement!

It was a busy weekend for the Tricia Huddas & Co. team. We would like to congratulate all of our wonderful couples.

Kate and Gabe were married on Friday in Forsyth Park with perfect weather despite the threat of rain all day. Saturday was the big day for Gracie and Nick as well as Lindsay and Ryan - both had beautiful courtyard ceremonies at the Mansion on Forsyth Park. And Sunday wrapped our weekend with the morning wedding of Samantha and Jordan wrapped. So we are all ready to put our feet up for a bit...very short bit.

As for the engagement - we had nothing to do with it, but while we were setting up for Kate and Gabe's Forsyth Park ceremony, we witnessed a surprise engagement just around the fountain from us! It's fun to imagine what an exciting and romantic weekend followed for our mystery couple...ahh fall love, so sweet.

Cheers to all of our fantastic couples this weekend! Enjoy your honeymoons!

Here is a sneak peak at Amie and Richard's wedding from this weekend. They were such a sweet couple that they actually made their officiant tear up! The love that the two of them expressed to each other, combined with the joy and happiness radiated by their families was so touching that there was barely a dry eye in the house!

I'm excited to share their unique and beautiful ceremony set-up, so stay tuned!
More to come...

A New Generation of Instant Gratification!

As you may or may not know, Polaroid discontinued production of their traditional, instant film in early 2008. Certainly a disappointment to all those who love the fun, vintage feel of a polaroid print - an image that instantly takes you back to the time when we couldn't preview a picture, disapprove, and ask for it to be re-taken! A sillier, more honest time, no?

So maybe you reacted to this news by hitting up ebay and hoarding Polaroid film for your wedding's guest book. Or maybe you moved on to Guest Book Plan B. Both unnecessary! Fujifilm has jumped in to fill the void with the release of their new Fujifilm Instax 200!

And Adesso Albums, a company that we mentioned in an earlier post about guestbooks, jumped right in and developed an Instant Photo Guestbook designed for Fuji's Instax prints! They sell their albums, the camera and film - so it really could not be easier to pull together a fun photo guestbook with one purchase.

In celebration of this new product, our blog readers can enjoy 10% off of their next Adesso Album purchase by entering the code "dailywed" when prompted at checkout.
