Something Borrowed, Something Blue

October 29, 2007

I am kind of completely obsessed with silhouettes lately. I think they are such a fun, elegant motif to incorporate throughout a wedding. Whether you incorporate them on your paper elements, (simple silhouettes of you and your fiance would look classic and clean on an invitation, or would be fun to print on coasters or cocktail napkins for your reception...) I also love the idea of silhouette wall hangings displayed at the wedding with a really thick, yummy ribbon. It is a look that is modern, but also timeless.
Silhouettes are no longer only made the old-fashioned way either. Instead of cutting images from paper, silhouettes now can be done much more quickly, accurately and easily-digitally from one of your photos. Order a high res pdf for your own printing or a gorgeous 8x10 on archival paper.
Fabulous companies like Classic Silhouettes and Simply Silhouettes let you do this easily. :)

You have just experienced one of the most incredible events of your life. The person who you love most in the world has popped the question and you have answered 'yes!' The whirlwind of the wedding planning world has now opened- questions and excitement from friends and family, your childhood wedding dreams re-visited, wedding magazines taunting you from the shelves of the check out lanes. You are finding yourself with a new language. A vocabulary full of words such as Fiancé, Chivari chairs, fondant--words you had no idea that you knew and now they seem to run off your tongue effortlessly.

I know how fast everything seems and how overwhelming it all can feel at first, so I created this blog to help answer questions, give advice and inspire new ideas.
