The endless stream of creativity in weddings now a days is inspiring to no end. Not too long ago Green Wedding Shoes featured a styled shoot with a focus on dreamy vintage fall inspiration & it was pretty much as amazing as it might sound. A mix of blues, palettes of green hues, gentle browns & ivory all done with a the perfect earthy touch. There are so many little details to this shoot that I fell in love with, however it was the show stopper piece that I couldn't get out of my mind! In effort to create a unique & wondrous ceremony backdrop, the team at She Walks in Beauty crafted something that I would easily put into my home never mind dress my ceremony location! What I'm talking about is a mega gorgeous birchwood arbor filled with vintage volumes!

I hate to be the one to point it out but there is a visual assault that starts to happen right about this time of year. The loud loud reds start to blare, the intense neony greens that we try to pass off as reds counterpart click into action and everywhere we look we are hit with a visual cacophony! Call me crazy, call me over saturated in the red & green = Winter Christmas department, but I am over it and have been for a long time. Its not to say that I am anti-red and green, just someone who actively searches for an alternative, some other way of expressing the winter holiday season. Naturally this sets one up to explore lots of other color avenues, like my dear mother who was a big big fan of the pink Christmas, dusty pink not bubble gum thank you very much! While alternative colors for the holiday season are all well and good, I personally always seem to find a neutral palette the most pleasing.

In the right hands and with the right focus of creative efforts, there is one simple piece of material that can be wielded into some pretty terrific pieces of decor. What material am I talking about..... well paper of course! This amazing piece of material that we take for granted on a daily bases can really be turned into some pretty amazing things and I am not speaking just of origami either! While one could run wild listing all the super cool things to do with paper, right now I want to focus on the raise of something that I am completely down with, the paper placemat! The beauty of paper is two fold, pun intended I suppose. Since I already went there, yes one of the great benefits to paper is how easily it can be altered by folding, cutting, staining, burning, you name it. Secondly, now a days paper is produced in such an awe-inspiring array of textures, colors, patterns and crafted with such unique materials that there is almost an infinite number of possibilities to toy with. All this means is that no matter your color palette, no matter your wedding's theme, there is the perfect paper out there to match it!
In today's Why It Works Wednesday we aren't focusing on just one great element of design, we're spreading the love highlighting a smattering of some of my favorite elements of wedding decor that have been floating about that are completely prime to take off into the wedding trend stratosphere, they just don't know it yet!
