By Lauren Saylor of A Fabulous Fete

Wedding Guestbook

When my husband and I got married, we crafted up a simple guestbook and asked guests to add polaroid photos of themselves along with notes of encouragement. Best decision we made. We received everything from the simple piece of advice to hilarious pictures of our best friends. It gave everyone the freedom to do something creative. So, it is still one of my number one recommendations for guest books. Read on for instructions on how to make your own with a little winter flair for those of you currently finalizing details for your own winter wedding!

Forest Green and Pink Wedding Inspiration

By Lauren Saylor of A Fabulous Fete

green and pink weeding

Is it really already September? And you know what that means, we are moving away from the super bright palettes to more saturated and fall inspired tones. Now, i’m not a huge fan of the brown and gold that comes to mind when we think fall. Not all color should be thrown in the trash once we get to the cooler months. I think we can still play with color, but use more saturated tones, and definitely skip the neon. With that said, here is one of my favorite color palettes for fall, forest green and pink. I love that the green is very mellow and grounding, but you can still have fun with the pops of pink.

Meeting each other in Italy, Sean and Kellin debated on taking family and friends back to the place where it all began, or celebrating on a tropical island where the groom spent his teen years.
