Florals and decorations can be a big chunk of change in a wedding budget. But for budget minded brides, why not think outside the box and look to ribbons, fabrics, and paper to get the same wow effect? The key is to layer your venue with textures and/or color to create interest. Think out-of-the-box or as we like to say “off-the-table” and consider your 3 dimensional space by hanging elements and highlighting entrances or architectural details. Just think, if you’re giving your guests something creative and fun to look at, they’ll be less inclined to notice the commercial grade ‘doesn’t-match-your-color-scheme’ carpet you dislike!

So if you hadn’t heard, a few weeks ago we were thrilled to have had the opportunity to take part of the Lovesick Expo at World Cafe Live. We met so many awesome brides (and grooms!) and were surrounded by some of our very favorite vendors. We had so much fun designing and styling our booth that we’ve signed up for our second expo of the year, Borrowed! Check out our inspiration for our Lovesick booth here.
We’re by no means any sort of photographers, but check out our shots of our booth below! Got a theme idea you’d like to see us use for our Borrowed booth? We’d love to hear! Borrowed takes place on April 1st (mark your calendars!) at the AVAM in Baltimore. We’ll be sure to pass along tons of more details of our next event soon!
pssst! We still have ‘Thank You’ signs for sale (and at a 20% discount – use code: LOVESICK2012) on our Etsy SHOP.
Need some help coming up with cute props and ideas for a holiday photo shoot? Belovely would love to help you style an engagement photo shoot, a couple photo shoot or even a holiday card. There is no task to big or small that we wouldn’t love to help style!! Here are some really cute holiday couple ideas that we just had to share with you all!
You should definitely be taking advantage of Christmas lights this time of year. Wrap the two of you up in a string of lights for a warm and cozy feel. So simple but so adorable!
You know how much we love signs, why not make your own Holiday Banner and seal the deal with a kiss!
Who knew Christmas tree shopping could be the perfect photo back drop?
Take advantage of the snow while you can, it makes for such magical moments like this one.
How freaking cute is this!! Craft your own fort, string a set of lights, and snuggle up to the one you love.
Don’t forget to have a little fun! The silly photos sometimes turn out to be the cutest and most endearing ones! Who wouldn’t love to act like a kid again and take photos with a sled?
