Wedding Tip #9 - Wedding Cake or Dessert Timeline | Lucky in Love Blog

Advice to help you through the wedding planning process

 

Wedding Tip #9 - Wedding Cake or Dessert Timeline | Lucky in Love Blog

Wedding Cake or Dessert Timeline ~ Book your cake or dessert caterer around 6 months prior to the big day.  This should be after such big decisions as what venue, season and décor theme you want.

Make sure your cake will compliment the rest of the day. Keep in mind the busiest wedding months are June through September, and December. At ordering time you need only an approximate number of guests, then confirm the number two to three weeks before your wedding day.

Riverside Wedding Inspiration | Lucky in Love Blog

Wedding Color Palette Inspiration from Pantone's Fall Color Series featuring Riverside Blue

 

We love love love Riverside, the new shade of blue from Pantone's 2016 Fall color series. It's almost like a stone blue that offers a much softer look for a wedding color palette. We suggest you pair this with a lovely forest green and splashes of gold for a striking combination to your Riverside Wedding Inspiration.

"Earmarking the importance of Blue in the palette, the new blue shade of PANTONE 17­-4028 Riverside undeniably takes precedence in the fall collections.

  • Cool and calming, strong and stable
  • Displays a subtle vibrancy and sophistication
  • Borders on exciting, yet
  • Maintains a sense of constancy

Romantic Wedding Inspiration

"Isn't it romantic? Music in the night, a dream that can be heard Isn't it romantic? Moving shadows write the oldest magic word, I hear the breezes playing in the trees above While all the world is saying you were meant for love..." Ella Fitzgerald - Isn't It Romantic? 

The sweet scent of roses strewn across an aisle way, flowy bridesmaids gowns that flit in the breeze, a canopy of trees twinkling with lights, and the epitome of femininity, romance, intimacy, and affection, displayed throughout your wedding reception through the use of velvet ribbons, plush pillows and petite roses. These are a few of the images that come to mind we when think of romantic wedding elements. 

The perfect color component to a romantic wedding? Rose Quartz. Pair this blush pink with lush greens and dashes of gold and Cupid himself, won't be able to help himself from falling in love.

From Pantone: "The desire for tranquility, strength, and optimism have inspired a Fall 2016 color palette that is led by the Blue family.

Along with anchoring earth tones, exuberant pops of vibrant colors also appear throughout the collections. Transcending gender, these unexpectedly vivacious colors in our Fall 2016 palette act as playful but structured departures from your more typical fall shades.

Blue skies represent constancy as they are always above us. Grays give a feeling of stability, Red tones invite confidence and warmth, while the hot Pinkish Purples and Spicy Mustard Yellows suggest a touch of the exotic."

Watch the Lucky in Love Wedding Blog for our Wedding Color-Board Inspiration Series, where we'll be featuring each of these beautiful colors individually.  

The top ten colors for Fall 2016 are: 

  • PANTONE 17-4028 Riverside: Earmarking the importance of Blue in the palette, the new blue shade of Riverside undeniably takes precedence in the fall collections.
  • PANTONE 14-4122 Airy Blue: Airy Blue’s lofty blue nature evokes feelings of lightness and freedom; and is a nod to Serenity, Pantone's 2016 Color of the Year.
  • PANTONE 17-3914 Sharkskin: Edgy grey and yet it manages to remain neutral.
  • PANTONE 18-1550 Aurora Red: A bold Red that is warm, sensual and immediately pleasing to the eye that adds a welcome punch to this Fall pallette.
