April Showers

If you just recently got engaged, I am sure you are oooing and awing over all the gorgeous Spring bridal showers. The romantic blush tones and vintage touches are a classic shower inspiration. Here are a few of our favorite things to incorporate into your bridal showers and luncheons. Don't forget lingerie and bachelorette parties, too! Not only are you getting to marry your soul-mate but your loved ones will shower you will tons of gifts. Cherish these moments!

There are many different times your MOH can throw your showers. What about a high-tea luncheon, a brunch with mimosas, late afternoon with wine and heavy hor d'ouves or a sit dinner at a swanky chic restaurant, martinis included? What is your style? Which will make your guests most comfortable?

April showers bring May flowers, gorgeous photography and a beautiful feminine color scheme. Embellish your party with pearls, pastels and peonies!

Let's start with you, bride! What are you going to be modeling? A vintage white a-line with tulle and lace? A chic fascinator? Both of these and many more possibilities can be creatively accomplished with Olive Style. Design a style perfect for YOU! Pick your top and your bottom. Add lace on the bodice for an ultra feminine touch. Why not add some girly fun with tulle at the bottom of your skirt?

Why just stop at the dress? Complete your look with headpieces similar to these with Olive Style. Give us a call and let us know how we can make your dream dress and style a reality.
Now that we have you looking like the ultimate vintage doll, lets set the stage with your invitations:

Create a vintage tablescape with ornate china and garden roses. Add a burlap or lace table runner to complete the look.

If you are thinking it might be easier to catch all of your guests for a Saturday brunch; this is by far the cutest idea we have ever seen! Just look at that donut cake! Precious.

You cannot forget the sweets! Bright cakes and cake pops are always a favorite.

Remember to join us for the Vinewood Open House
event on April 14th from 2-5PM!

Since emerald is the official Pantone Color of the Year and saving some 'green' never goes out of style -- venture to use mints, seafoams, olives, and limes as your wedding colors, also.

Wedding Rings
-- Conflict-free diamonds, sapphires and golds are starting a trend and saving lives across the world. These jewels and golds are not a cause of death or considered a "blood diamond."

True conflict-free jeweler companies promise their diamonds have been mined ethically and with respect for the people and the environment. Check out Brilliant Earth for more information and their gorgeous selection. Natalie Portman's conflict-free diamond featured to the right.

Vintage, Romantic, Chic

Vintage weddings are all the rage right now and for a great reason. They accent nature in the most beautiful way – including gorgeous jewel tones to muted pastels. Add a few horses in the distance, have an outdoor ceremony and reception, wear a beautiful lace wedding gown and throw on custom silk bridesmaids dresses by Olive Style.
Incorporating vintage touches into your wedding is not a stressful process either – with these six simple ideas your dreams will come true!
1. Less will always be more when it comes to a vintage wedding. There is no need to have an aisle runner when you are getting married outside  – if you do want one, opt for flower petals!
2. Natural everything  – Utilize jute and burlap to create table runners, wrap your bouquets and boutonnieres, create chair signs and hang wreaths for the front doors of the church.
3. Southern charm  – Monograms on any and everything is the way to go! Put them on the cake, embroider them on the Olive Style sashes on each bridesmaids dress, add them to your veil and of course, over-sized men's button-ups for each bridesmaid to get ready in the morning of!
4. Flowers flowers everywhere  – Your bouquet doesn't necessarily have to be tamed! Use wildflowers, garden roses and dusty miller.
5. Seating for all  – From wooden church pews to mix-n-match dining chairs in a field scream vintage ceremony and reception. Create romantic, plush lounge areas for your guest with over-sized velvet sofas and chairs ... the vintage part  – it's all outdoors!
6. If we are mix-n-matchin' the chairs, why not the maids? Olive Style provides the bride and her ladies with countless options for a classy, vintage, chic custom bridesmaid dress that is 100% re-wearable! Choose from the different silhouettes and create your own style. Numerous vintage fabrics from silk to patterns are available to add character to your wedding. Matchy matchy is out!
