Disney Wedding: A Whole New World

Disney Fairytale Wedding. Aladdin inspired wedding by Atlanta event planner Injinnyous Moroccan Wedding Arabian Nights Wedding

Just like a mirage in the desert, this bride is a refreshing vision. I used as inspiration for the color palette Jasmine’s dad, the Sultan. Warm complimenting metals are incorporated throughout the design to give this wedding an ultra elegant and glamorous look. Modern caftans for the bridesmaids are a different dress alternative for the bridesmaids. One that they are all going to embrace, as caftans flatter every body type, they are flowy, and super comfortable.

Please note that this is a hard design to execute, moderation is key. It can go from classy and elegant to tacky and trashy in a nano second. In my opinion, some people struggle with when to stop adding elements. If you notice, in both the cake and the table designs the most predominant colors are white and Desert Sand. The metallic elements are used only as accents. That is the way you want to keep it.

I always think of ways to surprise the guests. They might forget many things about your wedding but not a “Ha!” moment. Incorporating a belly dancer somewhere in your special day would be magical. Timing is important though, and something that needs to be carefully planned by your event planner. Some ideas are:

  • During the wedding ceremony (to dance you down the aisle or when the ceremony is over to dance you both out)
  • During cocktail hour
  • Towards the end of dinner (as a transition from dinner to dancing)
  • At the end of the night (to lead guests towards the departure site)

Dear bride, a whole new world awaits for you! It’s time to create the oasis that you deserve.

Disney Wedding: Me, Husband. You, Wife

Disney Fairytale Wedding. Tarzan inspired wedding by Atlanta event planner Injinnyous

Two very different people that have made it work. This couple has mastered the art of verbal and non-verbal communication. One thing is certain. They are creative, stylish, and fun. Don’t let a band of gorillas plan your event. It’s time to put your Jane hat on!

Wedding Mood Board: Fun, Feathers, and Forever

Wedding Mood Board: Fun, Feathers, and Forever by Atlanta event planner Injinnyous.com

Laid back, free spirited, and fun! This bride is confident, independent, and self-expressive.

I love the versatility of this design in terms of venue matching. Because the design has rustic elements combined with blue tones, you can choose to have your event:

  • outside in a garden or a farm
  • an all out rustic venue such as a barn or log type venue
  • an old house or inn with dark wood architectural elements
  • an industrial venue

The overall ambiance is relaxed-chic. The feathers help create the natural and relaxed look and proves that you don’t need flowers to make a long lasting impression for your guests. This event is about being comfortable, having fun, and avoiding above all stuffiness. Go ahead! I dare you to replace the quintessential photo booth with some fun games instead!

Let this event be a feather in your cap.

Wedding Mood Board: French Provincial

Wedding Mood Board: French Provincial injinnyous.com Atlanta event planner

I have been thinking a lot about my Southern country brides lately. I am not sure why it is that they think that if you are a country bride you have to do things in a certain way and only that way (by certain way I mean burlap). Ok. Hear me out, don’t shoot me just yet! Just because you are doing your wedding in a barn or a farm that doesn’t mean that you have to go with burlap. If that is what you like then I support you, but I don’t want you to think that your options are limited because that is what everybody else does. There are so many other things that you can do in a rustic environment if you are creative.

Take this theme for example. I envision this wedding in a barn or a farm. Many barns here in Georgia for you to choose from! Lots of browns, toile, naked cake, and not one ounce of burlap to be found. Still very rustic, classy, and elegant. Another secret, elegant does not necessarily mean expensive if you have a good eye. You can compliment this theme with french provincial furniture. I promise you, if you live here in the South somebody in your family has a dresser or a table that resembles that style. If they don’t own one, go to Goodwill or to a thrift store and you will find it. The toile fabric you should also be able to find relatively inexpensive and create fantastic runners and/or overlays. That is a great project for grandma or one of those aunts that is dying to help you out. 🙂

Oh! By the way, this is not a boring party either. I imagine a “pommes frites” bar or a french toast bites station opening towards the end of the night as a surprise for the guests. None of those two bars are expensive either! Seriously, who is going to say no to french fries or french toast! No excuses to not have a one of a kind wedding.
