Brides-to-be put a lot of thought, time, and research into how they’ll look on their wedding day. Small details of their look such as hair and jewelry suddenly become very important. One of the biggest bridal trends is the floral crown – whether with an intricate up-do or loose, flowing waves, the floral crown is taking brides by storm. From a delicate crown of baby’s breath and tiny silk flowers, to a statement-making crown of peonies and garden roses; a floral crown in a gorgeous alternative to the traditional headpiece. Share the look with your bridesmaids for an added pop of color and ultra-feminine vibe. You can learn how to make your own floral crown with this great DIY tutorial by Lauren Conrad or shop and explore Etsy.com to find your perfect fit! Looking to incorporate the floral theme throughout your wedding? Check out this floral-inspired, modern wedding invitation.

Each year the Pantone Color Institute selects and names one color that will make a lasting impact on the upcoming year. For 2015, Pantone has announced that the color of the year is Marsala. Marsala is a sophisticated yet earthy red tone. It not only pairs well with other natural earth tones, but it is great alongside jewel tones such as teals, blues, purples, and greens. In addition, this is the perfect color for a sophisticated soiree and would look gorgeous on a winter wedding invitation. Feel free to visit the Pantone Website for more information on Marsala!

Tasting and designing your wedding cake is an experience Brides dream about. Lately, we have seen an increase in the amount of people opting for an unfrosted, or ‘naked,’ wedding cake. Instead of decorating the wedding cake by completely covering it in buttercream or fondant, couples are asking to leave the sides of the cake exposed. Not only does this create a casual and unique cake (an excellent rustic wedding idea), but it is a budget-friendly option as well. We especially love how brides have been embellishing these naked cakes. Adding flowers, greenery, and a cake topper are just some of the ways to make a rustic, unfrosted wedding cake shine.

One of the biggest modern wedding trends in color is pairing yellow with gray. The color combination is extremely versatile and perfectly adaptable for a celebration in any of the 4 seasons. Having a Spring wedding? Stick to a pastel yellow and a lighter gray. Meanwhile, a Summer wedding is the perfect time to utilize a bright, bold yellow with a medium gray. We didn’t forget about Fall and Winter! During these seasons, opt for more of a mustard yellow as well as a dark gray. These warm, intense colors definitely compliment the cooler seasons.
Suggested Ink Pairings (from TGK): Pewter, Sunshine, and Mustard (for Fall + Winter)
