"Showstopping Love" inspiration board by Two Chic Chicks; 2/1/2013

“Showstopping Love” inspiration board by Two Chic Chicks; 2/1/2013

Valentine’s Day is just around the bend and with it comes thoughts of all things romantic. Our latest blog is inspired by all things love-related for the budget-conscious bride-to-be. With that in hand and taking a cue from the elegant affair that David Tutera, of “My Fair Wedding” fame, put together for his bride, Heather; we’ve come up with an inspiration board that will set your event in motion and make you the envy of Cupids the world over.

From the pink vellum invitation set, embossed with tonal double hearts to the romantic, floral-laden ceremony site, the tone of love is set. From there, the fashion continues to evoke the theme of love through the couture ASHLEYlauren bridesmaids’ dresses in a stunning fuchsia to the mother’s attire by Saison Blanche to the amazingly gorgeous – and oh, so feminine – wedding dress in a soft blush pink by Maggie Sottero. Then trip the light fantastic later in the evening in a sparkling creation by emerging designer, Shail K.

Your guests will feel like they’re a true part of your day of love at your reception thanks to the little special touches such as a menu that includes a pink peppercorn-crusted mahi mahi and an artfully crafted wedding cake in the shades of your wedding theme. The multitude of pink and red shades all throughout the decor echo the Cupid-esque theme while a candy buffet filled with assorted candies in all shades of pink and a cotton candy bar that will spin out assorted gourmet flavors to tempt your guests’ sweet tooth.

Close out the night with a special tribute of a donation made to the Susan G. Komen Foundation in honor of your special day and share a little sunshine in someone else’s life!

Hugs & High Heels,

Kay and Kimberly

Styleboard designed by Two Chic Chicks Boutique LLC

Styleboard designed by Two Chic Chicks Boutique LLC; January 4, 2013

After spending the holidays, relaxing with family & friends, we are back on track with all things work-related. Over Christmas break, we found time to catch up on some older episodes of “My Fair Wedding” and were really impressed with David’s 1950’s Glamour Gal wedding that he designed for his bride, Coryn.

Since the majority of us are unable to grab a planner like David Tutera for our own events, we scoured the web for similar elements used in his portfolio so that you can recreate your own venue both on the fly and in your budget!

Elegance is celebrrated throughout the entire event and it’s seen through even the littlest touches. The celebration leading up to the big day starts off with the perfect stationery in a classic black-and-white color scheme announcing your nuptials and then it progresses to the simple elegance of the ceremony space, with its clean lines and echoing color scheme that is further enhanced by the bridesmaids’ classic attire. Pops of color are found in the vibrant bouquets and the unexpected – yet totally fashionable – blush wedding gown and ethereal cage veil. After the ceremony, continue to express your love of timeless elegance with a reception venue at a beautiful ballroom, completed with sparkling chandeliers, a classic big band and a meal fit for a Queen. Top off the evening on a sweet touch with a gorgeous cake echoing your color scheme of black, white and fuchsia and send your guests off fater the fete with tasty jellybean treats!

Hugs & High Heels!

Our latest style board is inspired by  a past episode of “My Fair Wedding”, featuring the ever-impressive, Mr. David Tutera. For that episode’s challenge, he was faced with the task of bringing his bride Monique’s butterfly and rainbows-inspired wedding from the kindergarten-esque turn it was heading into a more sedate and elegant affair. Now, while the concept of having butterflies as a main wedding theme is absolutely fabulous, it’s also a theme that can go from glam to kitschy in the blink of an eye, mostly because there is just SO much stuff out there that’s butterfly-themed that one can truly go overboard without even trying to do so.

The trick to making a butterfly-themed event an elegant success is to play up the delicate nature of the butterfly, but to do so with a light touch and don’t give in to the temptation to get too heavy-handed. You don’t have to have everything completely smothered in butterflies. Try looking at some of the colors and using those along with the images of the butterflies so that you end up with a more cohesive palette. You can also play up the spring/butterfly theme in your menu, such as with the starter of rainbow chard or having the cotton candy martini as a signature drink.

Taking a cue from Mr. David, we decided to see how well we could come up with a butterfly/sky themed idea board and we think we did pretty darn well, if we may say so! {Patting ourselves on the backs}. Here’s some of our selections to work into your special event as well as where to find them on the web! We know you’ll have a ton of fun putting your butterfly party together!

Hugs & High Heels!

Hawaiian Luau style board

We’ve been fans of by David Tutera‘s impressive creations for a long while and recently sat through a weekend-long marathon of his show, My Fair Wedding on WEtv. The result is a new-found appreciation for glam and gala, and we’re happy to say that our creative juices have been reawakened. Thank you, David for that little bit of motivation that we were needing!

Our board was inspired by David’s magical Hawaiian Luau wedding that he created for his bride, Kristin. Shades of pinks such as fuchsia, rose and magenta, all blend together for a color scheme that speaks of the flowers in the tropics. Bamboo furniture, orchids, and even a signature cocktail add the needed extra-special elements to have you and your guests feel as if you were transported to a private tropical oasis.

Just because you aren’t able to engage the services of David Tutera for your wedding, doesn’t mean that you can’t create your own fabulous day on a budget. Our resource list will be able to help you make your tropical wedding dreams come true!
