Wedding Mood Board: Chained Hearts

Wedding Mood Board: Chained Hearts - Rocker bride

This bride rocks! Pun intended here. She is no groupie. This bride is confident and stays true to who she is. She is not fighting for her right to party. Her partners in crime (bridesmaids) know that she is all about freedom and self expression and adore her for it. They know that their friend is fun so they are willingly ready to rock a black leather dress for her.

The classy rock & roll Chained Hearts theme is carried out throughout the event in a hip and elegant way with the always elegant black, white, and gold color palette. After all if it is a rock & roll theme we need to have metal, right? Chains in the decor bring this theme to the center stage.

It’s time to party like a rock star!

Mood Board: Candy Corn Inspired Halloween Party

Halloween Mood Board: Candy Corn Inspired Halloween Party

In my last post I shared that Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, but what I left out was that my favorite Halloween candy growing up was candy corn. I guess that when you are young and your palette has yet to develop simple flavors are the best. 🙂

In any case, in the spirit of Halloween I wanted to create a mood board inspired on my favorite childhood candy. Now let me share a secret with you, quite often I start with an idea that evolves into something completely different by the time I’m done. Most designers and artists will tell you the same. If you visit the complete Pinterest board here you will see that I pinned items for both styles before I decided to go with the more traditional look. I started with a modern style and the color palette I thought I wanted (orange, yellow and white) and ended up with a traditional style and a yellow, orange, silver, and black color palette. It wasn’t intentional, it is just where the tablecloth find took me. It was an instant attraction.

Except for the pillows, all of the items selected are rentals. I like to stay in the know of the new inventory that the different vendors bring, so exercises like this help me find new things. What I like about this design is that even though it has the candy corn colors it is still very elegant and it has a luxurious feel to it. Let’s party!

Wedding Mood Board: Corpse Bride Inspired Halloween Wedding

Wedding Mood Board: Halloween Corpse Bride Atlanta Event Planning

I don’t know about you but one of my favorite holidays is Halloween. Halloween is that one day of the year where pretty much anything goes. Exaggeration, taboos, political correctness is all ignored in the name of having fun. I’m assuming that if you have chosen October 31st as your wedding day, you are an out there bride and I’m already in love with you!

For this bride it is all about the drama of the event. She wants to have fun and wants her guests to enjoy themselves by creating a light atmosphere. No, it’s not an oxymoron. You can create a light atmosphere in a somber setting due to the nature of the holiday.

The inspiration for this wedding is the Tim Burton’s animated movie, The Corpse Bride. It is a beautiful story about true love, kindness, and selflessness. Victor’s (main character) wedding vows are absolutely lovely. Any bride would want her groom to recite those to her.  I can also see a bride walking down the aisle to Victor’s piano solo. It sounds a bit like Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, so you know it will melt everybody’s hearts. I envision this wedding in an old mansion with dark wood paneling and glorious wood staircases and chandeliers.

This wedding also works well for a Gothic bride with very traditional parents as she can give her parents the conservative wedding they are looking for, while incorporating her style in a tasteful way. What a super fun wedding!

Don’t let your wedding planning details waste away and die.
