We are always fans of tradition — but we’re not afraid to subvert it then and again, especially when we can create a fresh take on the old. When it comes to “something blue,” who is to say you can’t wear an indigo gown at the altar if you feel like it? Here, we’ve curated a few bets in blue to ensure you’ve nailed down that final touch, be it in the form of eye-catching pumps, a flower girl’s sweet smock, an intricate brooch, or delicate handkerchief.

We’re so excited to announce that Christy and Phil’s outdoor Austin baby shower was featured on 100 Layer Cakelet! Christy is a vital part of our floral team and we were so excited when her stepmother asked us to help create an extra special baby shower for her. We painted the affair in sky blues and sunny yellows to echo the happiness that filled the room. Christy and Phil had papel picado at their wedding, so it was so much fun to bring them back for their baby shower. As they entered the shower, guests were greeted by mylar balloons. Refreshments included a table filled with “cravings” and a mimosa bar. We were so lucky to have the very talented Heather Curiel there to capture it all. Thank you to the amazing team of vendors who helped us make her shower such a dream.
When the black tie dress code was requested for Jaime and Nick‘s romantic spring wedding at their family’s Texas ranch, many might have arched their eyebrows. To us, it’s a beautiful kind of surprise. It’s about highlighting the juxtaposition between unfettered nature and the high civility of floor-length frocks and black tie. In doing so, it was the florals that painted it all together. From lilac to the palest lavender, lush and romantic spring blooms adorned everything from bridesmaid tresses to the reception ceiling. Our favorite way to soften even the most rustic of spaces. Take a look into the romantic details captured by Jane Bernard after the jump.
We’re with our couples every step of the way, wherever and whenever they need us. We give them what they’ve come to expect from us: more. That is why we’ve instituted a new series on the TNR blog called “Real Talk”, where we will breakdown the parts of wedding planning that can seem overwhelming. In this inaugural installment, we’re sharing everything you need to know about your gift registry.
