Wedding bells are in the air and there are so many decisions to make. Wedding planning is a major under-taking, after all you are fulfilling a dream. You select your color scheme based on your favorite colors or the season, choose your setting and theme, decide who will be in your bridal party, choose the flowers and centerpieces, hire a caterer, plan a menu, create a seating chart, hire a band and a photographer. Then there’s the Dress and the bridal party’s attire complete with customized wedding jewelry to tie all of the precious details together.
Wedding Planning: Modern Weddings
In today’s modern weddings much of the planning and overall features remains the same. We want our guests to be happy and have fun, the event itself to be beautiful and magical and now perhaps, more than ever, infused with the uniqueness of the couple getting married. In addition to writing ones own vows, a step that couples have been doing for many years, the one area that seems to be changing, is the color scheme.
Wedding Trends 2015: Color
If I were planning a wedding today, I would be delighted because one of the hottest colors for wedding trends in 2015 is Marsala. All one has to do is take a tour of wedding boards on Pinterest or browse through bridal magazines and one is hard pressed to see any color more dominant than Marsala for weddings in Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter.
A word about the color Marsala
Pantone named Marsala the color of the year 2015 and it has become a favorite in fashion and interior design, showing up everywhere. The odd thing about the color Marsala is that the exact color Pantone produced, a brownish red, is not what is being replicated. Neighboring hues on the color wheel are being cited as Marsala and we are left with a warm blend of burgundy, aubergine, plum, lucious reds and browns, oxblood, sienna, blush and mauve.
It doesn’t seem to matter which theme one selects: an English style afternoon tea, modern luxe, country western or eclectic elegance, Marsala can find its way in. Perhaps the easiest way is to show you a collage using Marsala for invitations, tablesettings, bridal party clothing, centerpieces and floral bouquets-right down to wedding cake.
Wedding Jewelry Customization
One might say that everything about a wedding is customized. It’s unlikely any two are ever the same, although I have a cute true story to share with you. My cousin’s father was a caterer and when it was time for her wedding she started telling him what she wanted. He looked at her and said, “You are getting married on Sunday -your flowers, tablecovers, etc will be what the gal chooses for Saturday night”. Years later she met a gal in her new development in Florida and they got to talking about the past. One thing led to the other, they discovered that this gal had used her father as a caterer, the dates matched, so they took out their wedding albums and, YES, this was the Saturday night wedding. Everything was the same -color scheme, aisle flowers, menu. Since then, they celebrate their anniversaries together and still laugh over it.
One detail you might not realize in planning a wedding is the wonderful opportunity to customize jewelry for yourself and the wedding party. This wedding jewelry is a unique gift to bestow upon the bridesmaids, mother of the bride and mother of the groom that will be treasured for life since it is filled with such wonderful memories.
Picture the mother of the bride or mother of the groom in a design similar to “High Tea”, “Enchanté” or “Romance”.

Imagine your bridesmaids in the graceful “Cattyleya” with a touch of sparkle or a delicate floral choker like the “Tendril” necklace.[products skus=”405, 14S12″ columns=”2″ orderby=”date” order=”desc”]
As a bride, you choose your dress so purposefully, your jewelry should complement it and flatter your neckline. A single strand of pearls is lovely but a statement piece, when paired correctly, can make your ensemble that much more special.
“Tryst” and “Anabelle” are feminine and demure designs that can be customized to bring the hues of your bouquet to the adornment of your décolletage.
