Memories of spring! A bright colored wedding shower!

Ok so its been a while since we blogged…ok lets be honest its been over a year I think :( 2014 season has proven to be a memorable one with lots of pretty things and unforgettable weddings! In the coming months we hope to showcase some of our latest work!

We thought we would start with a wedding shower we did back in the spring! The theme was gold, coral  and mint! The bride’s actually wedding which occurred early in September was to be all white and therefore she wanted lots of color for her shower! All florals were coral pink with some dusty miller to bring in the mint color. We used our gold sequins chevron runners to bring in a little bit more of that gold glamour feel!

The dessert table was accented with paper flowers for a whimsical effect. The beautiful cake and cupcakes were provided by OssoSweet and Milo’s Pastry provided a mouth watering array of pastries.

Stay tuned for pictures of the wedding we hope to share in a few weeks but for now take a look at this cute wedding shower and remember that spring will be here once again (although as I write this I believe the forecast in Ottawa today will be like a hot summer day).

DIY Wedding Decor

You DIY brides are going to love this!! When choosing your centerpieces and want to do something original for your wedding décor try thinking outside the box! Who says your centerpieces must be in glass vases or another traditional container! Try creating your own! If you are feeling crafty and want to potentially save some money try these options! Who would have thought you can make a centerpiece out of pvc pipes or empty jars of honey!! Or better yet grab some old beer bottles and spray paint them white for some shabby chic centerpieces.

Your local Ottawa Michaels craft store has all you need to do any of these. The Home Depot is another great hidden gem for some crafts!!

We are firm believers that details are what make the look and feel of weddings memorable. Wedding centerpieces are no different because they define the reception table. These ideas are perfect for adding tons of gorgeous detail. You can easily coordinate any of these vases with the rest of your wedding décor!

All that glitters is gold!

All that glitters is gold!! There is something about gold glitter that just makes the team here at Moonlight Events so happy. It just gets us going!! We love love love gold glitter!! Did we mention we love it? :)

When thinking of gold glitter some think of tacky Christmas décor from the 90’s but those days are long gone! The right gold glitter means GLAMOUR for your wedding decor!!! Now we don’t suggest that everything in your wedding décor be covered in glitter but we do suggest focusing on the small touches that can be so amazing and add so much to your venue!  Gold glitter goes well with almost any wedding decor color palette however with the right added touches to small details your wedding will really stand out and can be done at an affordable price.  A few of our favourites are gold and blush, gold and champagne or ivory and for a super glam look gold and black! The possibilities are endless! When trying to incorporate a little gold sparkle in your wedding décor keep in mind that less is  more. Hints of gold glitter can be incorporated into your invitation, your centerpieces, around your table with small votives, through table numbers, place cards or even in your wedding shoes! Take a peek below for some ideas of how to make your wedding sparkle!

Your wedding, your décor, your personality!

Here at Moonlight Events we have just started a new blog! What are we going to blog about you ask? Good question! We want our blog to help YOU: the bride and groom. We want to give you ideas, guidance and some inspiration to help you have the wedding decor of your dreams and of course have some fun along the way!

Wedding décor can be overwhelming at times especially at the beginning of your wedding planning. With so much to choose from it’s easy to get caught up and lose sight of the big picture!

The best place to start deciding on styling your wedding is starting with YOU. What do you like? What is your personality like? A wedding is a once in a life time event and it is about the bride and groom and what better way than to have your wedding reflect who you are?  Whether you want a black tie affair, vintage or a barn wedding anything is possible and all can be F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!! Wedding decor can really be anything you want it to be! There are no rules!

One suggestion we would like to give you: Whatever you do, just try STICK TO IT! It is very easy to change your mind about what you want your wedding decor to look like and to be honest it is to beimagesCARNM11F expected! You might start off with a vision in your head and it can slowly morph into something completely different. This is ok and it happens to almost every bride! To help you decide and keep stress levels to a minimum find something you LOVE.  When we mean love, we mean LOVE!!!! So get a picture, draw a sketch make a collage do whatever it is you have to do to capture your dream!

With so many sources to choose from today the inspirations are endless! At the end of the day all that matters is that you and your groomie are mr & mrs! So try and not sweat the small stuff!
