Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Footwork Friday

By Marla
If you want to do something different for shoes, this is a great idea for a summer wedding. Have each person in your bridal party wear a different color shoe. You can match the bouquet of each bridesmaid to the shoe, then have all the colors match in the brides bouquet. You can even match the shoe colors of the accessories as well. This is a very fun and colorful look to make your wedding a little more unique! Be inspired.

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Flower Girl

By Marla
Instead of the flower girl wearing the usual white long dress, here is something different and adorable. Why not have the flower girl wear a tutu?.. Too cute! I don't mean a dance tutu, but just a fuller tulle skirt in whatever color you'd like. This is such a cute and formal look for a flower girl to wear! I think the young girl will have more fun wearing it too! Be inspired.

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Peony

By Marla
Peony seems to be the hot flower for weddings this year, and I can't agree more. Peony comes in many different colors and also adds volume to flower arrangements. You can mix and match different colors and flowers with peony, or just have them all by themselves. Adding peony to the wedding cake or in a prop for a center piece gives a very classic, but unique addition to the wedding. Be inspired.

This is the perfect gift for a flower girl to have and save for when it's time for her big day. Using a pretty handkerchief, embroider a message for the young flower girl.

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Thank You!

By Marla
Remember these? Here is a way to say thank you that would definitely be unique! This is a great way to keep with the hipster or rustic chic look. Use cassettes to record your own personal thank you to your wedding guests from you and your husband! Bring up memories or say thank you for the gift that was given to you. Make it personal and one of a kind! Decorating the case for the tape with ribbon can make it a little more special and fabulous. I would not recommend this if you are having a large wedding, but for a smaller wedding this is such a cute idea! Be inspired.

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Footwork Friday

By Marla
Marilyn Monroe once said, "Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world." Giving your shoes a personal touch will really make them your own on your special day. Add decals to the bottoms of your shoes to create a message! Choose any color, font, glitter, or rhinestones to really shine on your day! You can use your wedding date, "I do", "Mrs. Gosling," etc... Walking around with shoes like these will really make heads turn! Sometimes the smallest things make the biggest statements. Be inspired.

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | The Brides Something Blue

By Marla
Can't figure out what to do for "Something Blue?" Instead of pinning a blue ribbon to your dress or garter, try something new to add more sentimental value to the tradition! Embroidering your wedding dates in blue onto the inside lining of the dress still keeps in with the tradition, but also adds a chic new twist. The embroidered blue dates will make your dress even more special and one of a kind! Be inspired.

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Romantic Vintage Wedding

By Julie
Check out this romantic vintage wedding!  The pink and purple accents really pop against the elegant vintage furniture and d├ęcor.  The couple had foosball tables set up for their guests as an activity; how cute is that?! If you know anyone who has game tables, ask them if you can borrow the table for a day!  Oh, and how amazing does that dessert table look?  Adding different desserts rather than just cookies will spruce up the dessert table in a cinch!  Be inspired.
