Feathers and Fluff

www.dmweddings.com
 
My Inspiration:
While in Belgium I visited the Atomium and an incredible surrealism art exhibition. This piece was particularly inspiring for wedding ideas. It made me think of dove releases and how romantic they can be at the end of an outdoor ceremony. It also made me think of something a bit unique. Bridesmaids could carry bouquets made of feathers and the bride's bouquet could also be made of feathers or add flowers to make it stand out a bit from the rest. The groomsmen could have feather boutonnieres instead of traditional flowers.

Coffee and Tea

www.dmweddings.com
 
My Inspiration:
Sometimes a simple but well executed meal can create some fabulous inspiration! If you are planning a wedding in cooler months consider hiring a professional barista to set up a coffee and tea station to serve some unique signature drinks to your guests that look and taste as special as your wedding day. If you are planning a wedding in warmer months consider a salad station with all sorts of different gourmet cold salads and breads for your guests to experience something new without straying from the traditional entrĂ©e offerings.

Guiness!

 
My Inspiration:
St. James Gate at Guinness brought me more inspiration for weddings than one might imagined it would. The rich gold and deep black with the contrasting white is a wonderfully regal color combination suitable for an upscale wedding. In addition, the idea of giving each guest their very own Guinness bottle as a favor to take home seems like a witty way to include a Guinness loving or Irish couple's interest into their wedding. Considering Guinness sells their beer in very attractive containers and often releases seasonal or throwback designs and flavors throughout each year it's a perfect way to add some personality to a wedding day.

Hay Rides

My Inspiration:
Inspiration can hit you at the oddest times. As I was recently watching a traditional small town tractor pull at a county fair an idea popped into my mind. Why not have tractors at a wedding!? Committing to a wedding theme means something different to each couple, but country and rustic themed wedding themes are indeed currently quite popular. If you are truly committing to a theme like that, consider offering tractor rides or hay rides pulled by a tractor to your guests as part of your cocktail hour or night time entertainment. It would be a fun and unique thing to incorporate into your wedding day and something guests would certainly talk about for years to come.

Rustic Glamour

www.dmweddings.com
 
My Inspiration:
I was inspired by my client's want for a rustic wedding with a touch of glam. My anticipation of a crisp fall day and the bridesmaids' raspberry dresses led me to incorporating vivid raspberry, deep red, warm orange, and white into the overall design. A barn filled with farm tables was the perfect venue to offer a rustic setting. The gold hints, crystal china, and chandeliers perfectly completed the glamorous ambience.

Moongate Romance



My Inspiration:
Moongates can be found all over Bermuda, which is where I found this one. Many gardens also feature them all over the world. Legend says, if newlyweds step through a moongate hand-in-hand, happiness will endure. Imagine creating your own moongate or large round wreath as the backdrop for your wedding ceremony. They add such an extra romantic touch to an already special moment.

Eiffel Tower Dessert

My Inspiration:
These divine desserts served up from inside the Eiffel tower made for perfect inspiration. Guests would absolutely love a dessert themed midnight buffet with a selection of your favorite desserts. Even if you both as a couple don't have a sweet tooth you could personalize the experience by adding savory treats like pretzels and spicy peanuts as well.

Delightful Brunch

www.dmweddings.com

My Inspiration:
This time my inspiration comes from an authentic Irish breakfast. While enjoying my breakfast in a sweet cafĂ© near Killarney I got to thinking about alternative options for feeding your wedding guests. Brunch! If you aren't too keen on the idea of having a huge reception with all the formalities but also prefer to have something a bit more hardy than a cocktail party reception a brunch would be the perfect happy medium. It's a perfect way to treat your guests to something a bit different and enjoy a less formal and relaxed celebration.
