Lily Pulitzer Wedding

A week or so ago, two of my favorite bridal blogs featured Lily Pulitzer posts on the same day! I wanted to make it a threesome with this inspiration board and join in the fun. Lily Pulitzer's bright and colorful prints are perfect for beach and destination weddings, and they still have that socialite, sorority swank. After all, Lilly is known as the 'Queen of Prep!' Loving this Pulitzer ring bearer pillow from Every Last Detail's post: And check out these shoes … [Continue reading]

haute couture

Haute Couture Wedding

Haute couture is (in my opinion) a somewhat overused word. It's French for 'high sewing' or 'high fashion,' but many people use the term to mean 'made to order.' Not so. Haute couture garments are made from high-quality, expensive fabric and sewn with extreme attention to detail and finished by the most experienced and capable seamstresses, often using time-consuming, hand-executed techniques. A haute couture wedding dress is truly one-of-a-kind. Speaking of … [Continue reading]

If you follow Burnett's Boards on Facebook you probably already know that I am obsessed with the show The Bachelorette, and doubly obsessed with this past season because the sassy southern Emily Maynard came back for a shot at love. I just love that super cool do-gooder Jef Holm won her heart -  so excited for these two! When I read an article on Life & Style  that revealed some clues as to what Emily's idea of a dream wedding might be, I couldn't resist making … [Continue reading]

sail away (+ guest post)

Sailboat Wedding

I've always dreamed of living on a sailboat. That way I can just pull the anchor up and go wherever I want. Realistically though,that's probably never going to happen. The next best thing if you've got similar dreams is to be married on a sailboat! Please welcome Nitin of ArtQuest Flowers - he's here to tell us about why getting married on a boat is such a brilliant idea. Take it away Nitin!

Autumn Wedding

There are many reasons to have a fall wedding, and the beautiful and cozy details in this inspiration board are just one of them. According to a Forbes magazine article, wedding guests will spend an average of $339 to attend each wedding they are invited to (and that doesn't even include the gift!), and summer is definitely 'wedding season.' Couples tend to get engaged in fall and winter months and married in spring and summer months. So, if you're thinking of … [Continue reading]

purple wedding

Purple is such a popular and fabulous color for weddings. It goes great with silver, gold, and black, and isn't so girlie that your groom will cringe. Purple lighting can also add a lot to the mood and if you're going to be using this royal color, I say glam it up! photo credits: all reception areas, ring bearer pillow, purple bouquet, purple sparkle cupcakes, earrings, purple ranunculus, submerged hydrangeas, Kate Spade Mrs necklace.  … [Continue reading]

the 1980s

1980s Themed Wedding

A 1980s themed wedding is sort of the ultimate in wedding themes. I mean, who hasn't been to an '80s' party before? There is so much to love (and miss) about the 80s. If you're going to be a retro 80s bride, check out these fabulous bouquets from Floricultcha. They don't come more retro than these: Another sort of 1980s, but it's 'oh so trendy right now' trend is the photo booth. I have something of an issue with the photo booth because while I love it, I see … [Continue reading]

tangerine tango

tangerine tango wedding

By now most of you probably know that Pantone's color of the year is tangerine tango. It's bright, it's fun, and a little edgy. Another thing that is hot this year is the new wedding planning tool, Wedding Lovely. They are taking on TheKnot.com and providing brides with an easy and stress-free way to plan their wedding, and the best part (in my opinion) is that it's not based on advertising! Lord knows I hate obnoxious adverts flashing all over an otherwise … [Continue reading]

anna karenina

Anna Karenina Wedding

Anna Karenina, by Leo Tolstoy, is the (tragic - but you can ignore that bit for your wedding) love tale of the married Anna and the oh-so-handsome Count Vronsky. Despite the somewhat gruesome outcome of this story (I don't want to spoil it here if you haven't read it), it would make  for a romantic wedding theme. What's not to love about posh Russian socialites? Plus, you can easily incorporate vodka and caviar into your menu (major score!) Caviar and buckwheat … [Continue reading]

vintage vegas (+ real engagement)

vintage vegas wedding

Rachel is one of those girls who you had a couple classes with in college, and you always got along with her great, but she was never really part of your inner circle, nor you of hers, and so you never hung out as much as you should have. Then life goes on, you graduate and you're friends with each other on Facebook... and then you realize that she's THAT girl - she's the one who is posting fabulous travel pictures from around the world, climbing mountains … [Continue reading]

a response and a conception story (rated: PG)

Hemingway Quote

As a new blogger I look to other blogs for advice and inspiration. I’m not ashamed of that and when doing something new, don’t you look towards the pros? I mean, hey, a girl can dream. One blog I read avidly is Rock N Roll Bride. If you haven’t heard of it a. come out from under the rock you’re living under, and b. you probably have and just forgot. It’s run by Kat, a pink haired bloggerina who has a solid voice, posts offbeat inspirational weddings, and her Green … [Continue reading]
