Guess you could say we’re on a real midcentury modern kick today. First this morning’s California-cool midcentury bridal shower, and now this glamorous retro wedding inspiration. Photog Michelle Landreau studied interior design in college, and has always been enamored with midcentury style. So she paired up with Pretty Swell Parties to create a sleek and clean look that pairs classic midcentury elements with fresh colors and lush florals.

Now let’s see, what do we have here… A little bling to put some sparkle in your Wednesday? We like the sound of that! Whether you’re shopping for an engagement ring or other diamond jewelry to accent your look, let us introduce you to Coronet Diamonds.

Coronet is a hip and affordable new jewelry brand with a patented solitaire setting, which uses seven diamonds made to look like a single, bigger diamond. (Brilliant, much?) What you end up with is far more luminescence than a standard one-carat stone at a fraction of the cost—aka pretty sweet deal for you and your future hubs. You can browse some of their affordable engagement rings to see all the pretty styles to choose from.

Coronet diamond jewelry also strictly adheres to the Kimberly Process, which means that all of their diamonds are conflict-free. So you can really feel good about those diamond earrings, pendant, or gorgeous sparkler you’re sporting on your left hand.

Mid-century modern bridal shower | Photo by Love Oliver and Michele | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=72359

Love, Oliver and Michele and Floral Kitchen had us at the words midcentury modern. Clean lines, a retro color palette, and lots of fantastic details? Always a winner in our book. The private home stood as a muse for the decor and casual vibe, with a lot of inspiration coming from California design in particular. The menu was inspired by California fresh food (fish tacos, guac, salsa and salad), and the guests took home DIY flower crowns as a lovely token of bonding time with girlfriends.

We love surprises, don’t you? Which is why we think it’s so totally cute that Carlos + Laura surprised their guests with ‘La Hora Loca,’ a Latin wedding tradition that revives the party late at night with a Carnaval-esque theme. (Think masks, feather boas, and a conga line… what a hoot!) But even before that big reveal, this pair had us pretty impressed with their DIY invites, hand-painted signage, and romantic brass touches—all captured by Love is a Big Deal.

Carlos and I planned everything ourselves. He being an artist, and myself a designer, we transformed our home studio into a “wedding war room,” complete with a chalkboard wall where we mapped out our game plan. Our vision was to create something that captured the spirit of Miami, but was most importantly a natural reflection of ourselves. I designed our stationery along with a bilingual wedding program, place cards, painted table numbers, and various signs.

Indigo dyed wedding inspiration | Photo by Spindle Photography | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=71903

We love us a good bridal shower activity. (Remember our Amanda’s flower arranging lesson? So much fun.) Well this little shoot from Spindle Photography, Kathleen Cook, and Invision Events was based on the idea of a DIY shibori station. Now what exactly is shibori, you ask? Shibori is an indigo tie dying method originating in Japan. It’s totally stunning, and you can click on over to our DIY section for the tutorial after looking at this shibori-inspired party scene.

Kelly Cummings from Spindle Photography says, For brides interested in throwing their own shibori party, we recommend following our lead and bringing some extra white cotton items for guests to dye and take home. We opted for onesies and boxers (or “party pants” if you will), to gift to friends and our spouses.
