Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | D - I - Why Knot String Art

By Marla
Incorporating these string woven boards is the latest trend of decoration for weddings. This project can be done with any word, name, saying, or symbol! Most of the items needed for this DIY project can be found at your local arts and crafts store. You can choose any color yarn or string you'd like. I would recommend using your wedding color palette! The wooden planks or a hard surface board can either be found at a hardware store... depending on what you're looking for.  This can be used for the table numbers, to highlight the guest sign-in book, at the head table, and as a keepsake at the new love birds home! Be inspired.

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Black and Gold

By Marla
In celebration of the Pittsburgh Pirates winning baseball season, I thought a black and gold color scheme would be the inspiration to this blog post. In Pittsburgh, a lot of people want to stay away from combining the colors black and gold on their special day because they believe guests will link it to the city's team colors. However, when arranged in the right way black and gold can be a very glamorous color palette. In the pictures below it shows a few different ways to style your wedding with this color theme. For an antique look add lace with darker brushed gold accents, and use black to make the gold pop... If you want a more traditional theme, keep it simple with stripes and bright gold accessories. Both of these looks are elegantly paired together in black and gold. Both settings are warm, welcoming, chic, and perfect for a fall season wedding. Be inspired.

Tulips are one of the most versatile wedding flowers. They come in just about every shade of cool or warm colors, which makes the tulip suitable for any season. The flower can be used while they are still buds or when they are fully bloomed. Together they create beautiful flower arrangements that can be formed in any shape round, ball, square, straight line, tear drop, ect. Also they make a great pair to other flowers such as hydrangea and peony for the bridal bouquet. Mix and match like colors or be bold with warm multicolors. Be inspired.

Pittsburgh Wedding Planner | Unique Seating Charts

By Marla
There are so many different ways to present a seating chart. The traditional way is to get your guests fames printed on cards that are organized in alphabetical order in lines, or in a round. Though that works out, it can be expensive to print and time consuming to organize. Also, don't you want to do something that's a little different? These ideas are a great new way for guests to find their seats easily and is easy on your budget. These most likely would be a DIY project so you could add your creative touch to the chart. Each chart is unique in their own unique way but my personal favorite are the window charts, and the flowered tree chart. This is a perfect way to save a little money and to have a personal, creative touch to your wedding. Be inpsired.
