Introducing…The WeddingWire Monogram Generator

Posted by Kim on Jun 17, 2016

wedding-monogram-generator-weddingwireThe great thing about a wedding monogram is that you can use it in so many different ways throughout your wedding and beyond, from invitations to thank-you cards, decor and more. And now it’s easier than ever to create a monogram that’s both unique to you and your spouse, and fits your wedding style. With the brand-new WeddingWire Monogram Generator, simply enter your and your future spouse’s initials (you can put your first initials in boxes 1 and 2, and, if you’d like, a joint last initial as well), and then choose a color that matches your wedding day color scheme. And, voila! You’ll receive 40 different monogram options to choose from, which you can then download and use however you’d like. While you’re at it, take a picture of the creative ways you’re using your monogram, share ’em on Instagram, and tag the photo with #wwmonogramlove so we can all get inspired!. Check out the WeddingWire Monogram Generator—we apologize in advance for the amount of time you’re going to spend playing with this fun tool! #sorrynotsorry

We all know that the best part of any awards show actually happens before the show even stars, the red carpet! Offering up expert critique on the ensembles the hottest stars are donning is arguably the most fun part about awards season. As a bride-to-be, this is also a great place to look for bridal fashion inspo since the aisle is basically your own red carpet. Lucky for the recently engaged, there was no shortage of wedding day looks at this year’s Golden Globes.

Real Wedding: Classic, Elegant, Tradition

Posted by mallen on May 13, 2013

Trends may come, and trends may go, but there is something to be said about timeless, classic, elegance – it never goes out of style.  Each generation may have their spin on the concept, but the foundations are solid; and also comforting.

As a historic venue, we see many variations on that “classic” theme.  Everything about Elaine and Charles wedding day seemed like a dream of elegance and grace: her lace-trimmed veil, the gloves, the bow on the dress; his white tie and tails and rose boutonniere; the layers of flowers between white flourished cake, the pearl-accented centerpieces .  “Each time I see the photos, I remember how happy everyone was and how much fun we all had,” agreed Elaine when reviewing her wedding day recollections.  ”I was absolutely floored at how gorgeous the place looked. It was like a fairy-tale wedding. I loved it!”

Stephanie’s wedding color theme was lavender and white.  Her idea was spring, fresh and most importantly elegant! She used lots of orchids on her arrangements. Orchids are known for their delicate beauty, exotic character and they represent love, elegant, luxury and strength. They have a graceful appearance which draws attention and evokes a sense of refinement and innocence.

As we all know purple is the color of good judgment and represents spiritual fulfillment and peace of mind. Purple also symbolizes magic and royalty. Stephanie had an elegant simple dress on and the most gorgeous sparkly diamond hair piece in her hair. Sylvia Weinstock created a bow on the cake to match the bow on her wedding dress.  Thankfully, Brett Mathews captured the special moments and beautiful details during the big day! Take a look:
