Lemonbox Studios + the photogs at Tandem Photo love winter weddings and can really envision how much potential they have for the contemporary couple who wants their big day to be all things cozy, warm, and inviting. They had a Scandinavian theme in mind when they discovered this rustic venue in the Scottish countryside… AKA the ultimate backdrop for a festive, welcoming event like a winter wedding…

They used a monochrome color palette with pops of copper for warmth, then layered wool and wrapped twig place settings for texture + depth. All of the details contrasted with the clean lines with the The Byre at Inchyra’s rustic surroundings.

Lisa of Floral Menagerie says, Although generally viewed as the supporting cast in a floral arrangement, foliage can be used to create all kinds of texture and drama and that’s why I love it. The vision featured lots of beautiful contrasts and I wanted the florals to add to the softness and for the suspended wreaths of flowing winter foliage to bring a warmth to the table.

Okay guys, ready for something seriously sweet?

From Lemonbox Studios: The concept for our hot chocolate bar was to give guests a warming welcome drink, complete with a rum kick to warm them up on a frosty wedding day. The vintage spoons were filled with chocolate for melting into warm milk by the cake geniuses that are bakery47, who also provided a whole host of delicious sweet delights including cinnamon curls, delicate macarons, rochers and amaretti to fill the table.

DIY Blue and White Olive holiday wreath | Photo by Josh Gruetzmacher | Design and styling: Type A Society for 100 Layer Cake

If you’re not into the traditional red + white wreath for your holiday décor, the team at Type A Society totally has you covered. Last week we shared their DIY orange + olive wreath (super easy to make, by the way), and now they’ve got another good one up their sleeves: a blue + white wreath made with fresh flowers.

Carrie of Type A Society explains, If you are having a dinner party and want to decorate your front door with a wreath that will make your guests stop and stare, choose fresh flowers! When you place them in foam they will last 3-4 days longer than normal so be sure you find the perfect aquafoam size to fit your door. 

Okay, time for the DIY! Thanks to Josh Gruetzmacher for documenting the process!

Step 2: Insert your cluster of thistle first. Then fill around with olive greenery. Make a small hole into the foam and insert your paper white flowers. Make sure they are secure in the foam and the delicate stems are not broken so they will last a long time.

Happy Wednesday, cakies! We wanted to pop in and share a beautiful new design that Riley & Grey (the place to go for modern luxury wedding websites) just debuted: A gorgeous gold holiday themed wedding site design. It’s perfect for those of you with winter wedding dates planned… Or that simply love gold, which is everyone else, right?! They’re constantly rolling out new features, like last month’s customizable color options and this gilded gold theme is just in time for December. Check it out:

Riley and Grey luxury wedding websites

How it works: Peruse the demos on their website (sign up to see them all), and choose which of the limited edition themes suits you best. Then, add in your info and share with all your guests for a super easy way of collecting info and RSVPs and presenting your registry. Each site comes with a custom domain name, organizational tools, and hands-on customer service, too.

You can even add profiles for the members of the wedding party!

Each website has that same sleek aesthetic on mobile and tablets too, so guests won’t need to have a laptop handy to check out your registry, get wedding deets, read your notes, or anything. As you can see above, the site will function like a mobile app—making it easy to navigate while on the go—without having to download one. Pretty neat.

Another cool thing about Riley & Grey is that they don’t stop at web design. They love to inspire brides + grooms to embrace their couple style and it shines through when you see all gorgy images on their Pinterest and Instagram. All the eye candy you can get when planning a wedding is more than welcome!

If you like their style, don’t forget to follow the Riley & Grey blog for even more inspiration and news!
