Paper Lanterns for your Tahoe Wedding

Paper lanterns add not only great lighting but a cozy feel to your wedding environment, plus they look great against the greenery of trees so they are the perfect accompaniment to your Tahoe wedding. If you decide to incorporate lanterns into you Lake Tahoe wedding you can chose to go with either all white or a colorful array — we love both!

White lanterns create a more formal, romantic atmosphere; while colored lanterns are more whimsical and playful. Another reason to decorate with these paper bulbs is you can re-use them in your backyard and let your wedding memories live on forever.

Pendleton Woolen Mills is a textile manufacturer founded in 1863 in Oregon. Recently, the iconic pattern had increased in popularity throughout mountain towns. We love the idea of subtly incorporating the pattern into your winter wedding. Some ideas, as shown below, include aisle runners, centerpieces, and blankets for your guests during a chilly ceremony. What we love about providing these blankets into your ceremony is that they double as a wedding favor.

Now, don’t get sticker shock when looking at the price of these products (yes, they are pricey), but because of their increased popularity that look has been recreated at more affordable price points.

Step 1: Start by choosing a unique packaging to hold your welcome goodies. We like a canvas bags or wooden boxes that guests can reuse. You can even iron on details to make it more personal.

Step 2: Start building your bag. Infuse a personal touch by adding treats that are locally sourced, special to you as a couple, or are unique finds for your guests. Include warm drinks like hot cocoa, tea or coffee and sweet bites to make guests feel at home. Try a package of granola and honey to be enjoyed in the morning.

Step 3: Be sure to include a map or activities card for guests to reference. If you have a wedding website with an online itinerary, be sure to direct your guests there for more information.

Step 4: A sweet additional and personalized touch, handwritten ‘Thank You’ notes for each guest are a thoughtful gesture that go a long way.

Step 5: Your welcome bag is ready for delivery! Your guests will love their warm welcome due to every thoughtful detail.

Non-Traditional, Colorful Wedding Dresses

So, we’re not saying you should walk down the aisle in a hot pink gown, but we are saying you should be open to muted hues if you consider yourself a non-traditional bride. Our favorite colors to play off of are pink, blue, and gray (a few examples of which we showcase below). In fact, we think there is something elegant and romantic about a pastel dress and at least worth a try on.

Rompers are the New Getting Ready Robe

A bridal party trend we’ve been loving for a while now are matching robes for the bridesmaids to wear while getting ready for the big day. Recently, we have seen the trend switch from robes to rompers and we are absolutely loving it! They operate under the same idea — a nice memento to keep from the day (plus they look GREAT in photos) — but rompers, in our opinion, seems a little more practical and less, well, airy. Here are some examples of getting ready rompers we are absolutely loving.

Who doesn’t love ice cream, seriously, try and find someone. But, unfortunately, ice cream can be messy and not necessarily something you want melting in the sun on your wedding day. We are here to tell you that there is a way to keep an elegant, sophisticated vibe at your wedding while still serving ice cream. Below we outline some simple treats, mostly bite-sized, that would be the perfect addition to your wedding menu.

And, another secret, you don’t have to wait until dessert time to serve ice cream — imagine the look on your guest’s faces if along with the passed bruschetta and mini crab cakes they were offered an ice-cream sandwich.

So, the flower crown has been around for awhile and has festivals like Coachella to thank for its quick rise to fame, but we are still big fans of a floral bridal crown. To switch things up a bit for your winter wedding we suggest having greenery, rather than flowers, be the key component in the hair piece.

Below we feature some crowns that we think are absolutely stunning and cover everything from a typical crown, to a hair piece that can be used to a low up-do, to a simple crown that would look adorable on your flower girl.

Long live the floral crown!
