Friday Favorites: 03.15.13

How about a little green today to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this weekend?  Happy Friday!  One tip on using green in your wedding – there are so many shades of green and, in my opinion, you have to be really careful when it comes to tonal shading.  Sometimes really crazy bright green (think chartreuse) doesn’t mesh well with cool sage – if you want to go tonal with shades of green, talk to your designer about what will work or head to the paint store to grab some paint chips.

Favorite Gown: Okay, this isn’t green but it’s gorgeous so I hope you’ll give me a pass!  I love a short gown – I think they look so sophisticated!  This one from Romona Keveza’s fall 2013 line is lovely!

Favorite Bouquet: I am generally not a fan of hand wired bouquets (honestly, I don’t like the skinny handles) but I like this one – you don’t see a ton of gladiolus in wedding work but I think they are so pretty!

Favorite Boutonniere: Succulents are a great way to bring in green as is eucalyptus – this bout has both!

Favorite Cake: Gorgeous sage green fondant cake with lovely scroll work.  Beautiful!  I like the monogram as well.

Favorite Extra: How about a shot for St. Patrick’s Day?  This Irish Flag shot is 1 part creme de menthe topped with 1 part Baileys Irish Cream (they subbed Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur for whiter color) and 1 part Grand Marnier.  Yum!
