Wedding Inspiration: Navy, Powder Blue & Green

5 Oct


Our latest wedding inspiration is navy, powder blue and green.  A beautiful combination that conjures up a summer day in the Hamptons.  The ocean colors and lush green makes for an elegant trio of colors.  You can incorporate many different types of flowers, but I think a lot of greenery would add a lot of punch to this color combination.  Some greenery ideas:

  • Baby Eucalyptus
  • Bear Grass
  • Dusty Miller
  • Cocculus
  • Silver Tree Leucadendron

Get inspired with our picks:

Navy Classic Photo Thank You Cards, Navy Wedding Union Photo Save the Date Cards, Renaissance Wreath with Monogram Linen Like Napkins, Navy Bristol Tile Return Address Labels, Blue Oasis Invitations, Personalized Navy Trim Cosmetic Bag, Blue Moire Printed Placecards, Romantic Script Twisted Handled Bags, Outline Shaped Monogrammed Plastic Plates, Personalized 3/8 Satin Ribbon, Ornate Hanging Gift Tags, Aqua Floral Notepads.

Engaged? Helpful Tips on Save-the-Date Wording

11 Jan

Engaged?  Congratulations!  One of the next steps is to send friends and family a Save-the-Date Announcement.   Not sure what to include on your Save-the-Date?  Etiquette expert Sue Fox has the following suggestions to help you with wording whether your style is formal or informal.


The format and wording to use

Ensure that you include both names, the date and location of the wedding and since this may be a new concept to some of your guests include an explanation that a formal invitation will follow. The card can be worded quite informally:

Save the weekend of June 19, 2009! Jane and John are getting married!

We’re getting married! You’ll be invited to the wedding that is to take place on June 19, 2009. Please save the date! Jane and John

Joanne Green and Allen Thompson  Please Save the Date!  We will be getting married on July 25th 2010 in Boston, Massachusetts. Invitation and details to follow.


A more formal approach for a formal wedding might read:

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Myers,

Please save the date of Saturday, June 19, 2009 for the wedding of Joanne Green and Allen Thompson (or full names for a formal card) in Boston, Massachusetts.  Invitations to follow.


Mr. & Mrs. William Green
