Weekly Wedding Look: Just Peachy Decor for WinifredBean.com

Summer cools into crisp fall as the peaches ripen on their branches in a Georgia orchard. Channel the delicate pink hues of this sweet Southern fruit at your fall wedding. Soft pastel stationery featuring a peach tree in full bloom is the perfect way to announce your nuptials. Frame the natural beauty of an orchard with playful streamers in varying shades of pink and peach, and walk down a garland-lined aisle with a larger-than-life bouquet in a rainbow of pinks and oranges. Vases in all shapes and sizes welcome your friends and family to a peach-accented reception. Gather your guests around tables accented with wooden bowls filled to the brim with the tender fuzzy fruit. Wrap up your peachy night with a spicy cardamom-infused signature cocktail, then sweeten things up with a towering peach-frosted cake.

County Fair-Inspired Wedding for Winifredbean.com

WEEKLY WEDDING LOOK – COUNTY FAIR, PART II

August 6, 2013

Few summer events are as whimsical and delicious as County Fairs. Infuse your own summer wedding with this country-style fun. Think food-on-a-stick, outrageously cute candy bars, and custom chalkboards to spell out your love. Start with a pastel palette with pops of vibrant red that lends to a country chic vibe. A simple exchanging of vows is given a playful twist with extra large balloons floating above the couples’ head. Lead your guests to their seats with name cards arranged in carnival-like crates of peanuts. Long, wooden, family-style tables are numbered with coveted Blue Ribbons and sit below strings of globe lights. Give fair food a gourmet upgrade with delectable bites such as duck confit corndogs and salty, buttery popcorn in personalized paper bags. Lastly, send guests home with a Blue Ribbon-worthy dessert bar as sweet as your County Fair-themed wedding.

Bridal Style – County Fair for Winifredbean.com

WEEKLY WEDDING LOOK – COUNTY FAIR, PART I

August 5, 2013

County Fairs are quintessential summer events. From deep-fried Oreos to prize winning pigs, communities gather together each summer to celebrate fun, food, and one another. Channel this fantastic fair energy into your summer nuptials! Winifred Bean’s Tulipe gown epitomizes vintage beauty with elegant chiffon and sweetly draping sleeves that can be worn on the shoulders or loosely over your arms. Accessorize with vibrant colors to add a touch of whimsy to your look: bright red poppies make a bouquet pop and a swipe of hot magenta over your lips brings a balance of pretty and daring to your bridal style. A multi-colored jewel necklace adds glamour while a delicate feather hair piece ties together a vintage country look. As a final touch, slip on your ruby red slippers: Red suede Mary Jane pumps add a vibrant splash of color to your Country Fair look.

WEEKLY WEDDING LOOK – BARNYARD BASH, PART II

July 23, 2013

There’s nothing better than a carefree summer day in the country.  I’ve been spending the month of July in my home state of Texas, and getting loads of great country inspiration to show for it.  Even the most dedicated of city brides can appreciate the casual sophistication of a countryside wedding set in an airy, spacious barn.  From festive yellow invitations and sunny daisy-filled centerpieces, to the mason jar-lined ceremony aisle complete with long wooden benches, this is wedding inspiration that just makes me happy.   And speaking of mason jars, check out that amazing DIY chandelier…yes, I said DIY.  So grab a drink – complete with your own custom stir stick, kick up your feet and get lost in this Backyard Bash.  It’s sure to make for the Best Day Ever.
