2018 Wedding Inspiration

Happy Wedding Planning Season! Congratulations to all those couples who have recently gotten engaged! With this special time of year upon us, we wanted to share some of our favorite Wedding Inspiration for 2018 to help you start planning your perfect dream wedding.


Navy Alternative to Formal Black


Navy is the new Black? It certainly seems like it lately! The Navy trend seems to be popping up everywhere in the wedding world. Instead of going the traditional Black Tux route, Navy can offer a fun twist that is still elegant and timeless. Other places we are seeing navy; wedding invitations, place settings, and linen.

Bold Blooms


Instead of subtle pastels and neutrals, bold floral arrangements really bring the party and allow for beautiful, bright pictures as well. Bright oranges, yellows, and reds bring lots of fun color to your wedding day.




Geometric Shapes


Geometric Shapes can give off a modern tone to your wedding. These can be incorporated in Place Cards, Table Settings, and our personal favorite-hanging backdrops!

Hanging Floral Elements


We’re all about creative ways to decorate, and hanging florals might be one of the prettiest. These make beautiful, graceful backdrops for your ceremony and dinner, and let you incorporate flowers outside of the traditional table arrangements

Natural Elements


This theme really embraces bringing the outdoors inside! Especially in Chicago, we can’t always count on having an outside wedding year-round. Bringing in elements of décor with trees, floral, and greenery, s well as lighting really can transform any venue and make it your own. Plus, you won’t quite have to give up your dream of an outdoors wedding, even during Chicago Winter.
