gold + silver + bronze wedding cake inspiration
We were really lucky to have a florist that truly listened to our vision and needs for the wedding. Our wedding colours were white, pink and gold- all of which were tied in perfectly.
I had not done much research before meeting with our floral designer. It was actually one of the last things I ticked off my to-do list. Having a high centerpiece was the most important factor for us. We had been to a couple of other events where we struggled to have conversations with others across the table due to low-medium height flower arrangements.
For some eye candy whilst our guests were seated, a rose was added in the center of the vase. Also the delicate hanging crystals were a nice final touch which caught the sunlight beautifully.
Our head table consisted of smaller arrangements that used the same flowers for the main centerpieces. The lighting and draping behind the table was quite dramatic, so we didn’t need to much focus on the flowers.
I wanted a bouquet that I could use in the morning (during our Indian wedding ceremony) and in the evening for the reception. I LOVED how my bouquet turned out. Consisting of all fresh roses, the combination of pinks, whites and crystal pins matched everything.
I’m currently having a dilemma deciding how to wear my hair for our three wedding events. I am thinking:
1. Sangeet: down and wavy
2. Wedding Ceremony: updo chignon bun
3. Reception: Curly
Problem is- I have stick straight hair. My stylist did a mock up of my reception hair and it looked great but it only lasted an hour. She used curlers and a couple of Aveda products but it didn’t stay. I have had my hair done curly before using a curling iron and it stayed. I suggested that to the stylist but she kind of ignored it. Should I switch stylists? Is it too late to look for another salon? Or should I switch the hairstyle?
Dilemmas of a bride in the making..
I know I say this is often but wow time is flying by! We are on schedule for all of the major wedding + reception components, which is the good news. But being the detail oriented person that I am, there are tons of new ‘to do’ items popping up on our list daily.
Now the exciting news.. I am interning with The Collection- an event studio based out of Sonoma. “The Collection Event Studio is a creative meeting and design studio showcasing a thoughtfully curated library of vendors, venues and products from the wedding and event industry.”
In addition to posting one weekly blog article, I will be creating style boards, exploring/reporting local happenings and attending industry events. I am excited as it gives me an opportunity to get first hand experience in the wedding/event planning industry while further developing some of my favorite hobbies- writing & photography.

These are gorgeous! #weddingcupcakes
