DIY Wednesday: Watercolor Paper Goods
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

By: Caroline Drake

Watercolors are such a fun trend right now, and a great way to splash your wedding colors on just about anything! Dessert or food labels can be dressed up easily with just a few strokes of watercolors, and it makes a huge impact on a delicious table spread. Here’s the how-to:

Materials: Watercolor paints in your colors • Paint Brush • Water • Watercolor Paper • Scissors or a decorative paper punch

Step One. Print out, or write the food labels you need onto watercolor paper.

Step Two. Cut the labels out with scissors, or use a die cut or paper punch for a more decorative edge.  When you make your cuts, leave room for the watercolor design.

Step Three. Paint a few lines of watercolors onto the label.  Repeat for all paper goods in the spread.

Step Four. Place the watercolor paper goods on the table to label the goodies for your guests.  Mini easels are also a fun way to display them, and you can find them at most craft stores.

Amber + Brett: A Chic California Barn Wedding by Weston Neuschafer Photography
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

A grand vineyard wedding in the California sunset for just under 50 guests—sounds like an unforgettable and intimate way to kick off a lifetime of love, don’t you think? Amber and Brett selected Thacher Winery as the site of their September nuptials, and, with the help of Korinna Peterson of Le Festin Events, planned a spectacular country-chic affair from their Brooklyn apartment. Thanks to Weston Neuschafer Photography for sharing his dreamy images of the day with us—we love, love, love the way everything seems to softly glow from within.

Amber and Brett first became friends as middle school teachers in Austin, Texas. Life eventually drew Brett back to the East Coast, and the pair drifted in and out of separate relationships and circumstances until a chance reunion at a Teach for America summit in Washington, DC. During a visit to NYC soon after, Brett told Amber that she was the girl he wanted to share his future with. The rest, as they say, is history—the pair has been living together in Brooklyn ever since!

Fashion Friday: An Uptown Chic Reception Outfit for the Bride
Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Bridal Fashion, Reception

Don’t get us wrong—we love, love, love the classic look of a floor-length wedding gown. But after rings have been exchanged and vows have been said, what bride doesn’t want a dress that’s a little easier to move in? We’re big time advocates of a second (and shorter!) reception dress here at Project Wedding, and this sweet little Kirribilla number from Weddington Way is one of our faves right now. Add a few bits of (elegant) bling and finish off with a shiny cobalt pump for a city chic ballroom celebration.

Where to Buy: Kirribilla Celeste Little White Dress ($420) • Ban.do Crystal Swirl Brooch Bobbi ($130) • New Look Pleated Satin Box Clutch ($22.02) • Lydell NYC Blue Crystal Stud Earrings ($25) • Kate Spade Emison Satin Peep-Toe Pump ($328)
