Think Spring. Think Weddings!

Easter just passed, the bathing suits are on the racks, the winter hats are back in the closet…it could only mean one thing – it’s Spring Time! And with spring being the most popular time to get married, I want to extend a great big public “thank you” to my 5 friends (yes 5) who decided to get married between March and June of 2008. They sure are making this an eventful (literally) time of year for me. By the time the weddings are over and the National Stationery Show has passed I’ll be an official wedding trends guru!

This past Friday I attended one of my closest friend’s wedding and it was absolutely beautiful. She combined a little old with a little new, and wrapped it all together with the colors of spring. Not quite sure what I mean? I’m going to take you on a photo recap of the celebration to explain.

The wedding was at Anthony’s Pier 9 in New Windsor, NY. If you don’t know NY weather, let me give you a quick tid-bit of information, March in NY is colder than December. So although Friday was technically spring, an outdoor wedding was not an option. But Nicole (the bride) found a way to have an outdoor wedding, indoors.

I loved the flowers Nicole picked out. Each bridesmaid had a spring colored bunch of tulips and each groomsman had a matching rose or carnation. What a great way to incorporate spring colors into a wedding!

Now onto the cocktail hour where the big debate was whether the favors were little rocks or little candies. Any guesses?

Time to sign the guest book! Here’s where you’ll see that modern feel to her wedding but with the traditional, timeless accent of little pearls & doves – I love it!

The head table was beautiful – simple and elegant.

And last, here’s me and my husband lookin’ all fancy! 1 down, 3 more weddings to go (we’ll be missing the one in Niagara Falls unfortunately)!

Now speaking of weddings, the NSS Girls are cooking up some very exciting bridal additions to this May’s Show. We’re talking more than the elegant invitations & announcements, more than the fun bridal accessories & favors, even more than the already exciting seminar presented by The Knot – all of which are key features of the Show. Think big. Think new. Think fun. Think Show Biz. Details to come soon! I hope you’re getting as excited as we are – 7 weeks ‘til Show time!
