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!

"Remembering Liz" ~ March 2011 styleboard

Our style board for March 2011 is inspired by one of the great icons of Hollywood – Elizabeth Taylor. Ms. Taylor may have passed away this month, but she will forever be in our memories for her incredible acting talent, AIDS activism and especially for her unique eyes.

Lavender is a soft and feminine color that is perfect for weddings set in the freshness of spring, when everything is just starting to bloom and awaken from winter’s slumber.  We love the way it looks when paired with both lights and darks, such as white or a deep aubergine.

Our featured items will receive their own turn in the spotlight with our next blog, which will include all of the links for where you can purchase the items shown above as well as shout-outs to the contributing vendors.

Until then….. be inspired by our lavender-hued board and add a little touch of Old Hollywood glamour to your next event!

Hugs & High Heels,

Two Chic Chicks Boutique
