K is for Khaki Color Scheme

     20% SALE Blush Champagne White Chevron Sequin Tablecloths. SHIPS ASAP. Gatsby wedding, Art Deco

Hello lovely readers!  It has been over a month since I've blogged and I give my sincerest apologies. It is for a wonderful reason, well really 3 wonderful reasons: Cristal, Shelley & Alexandra!  Those are the three beautiful brides-to-be I began working with over the past few weeks.  They are amazing and are inspiring me to work even harder to get in the know about everything wedding related. This post probably falls closest into Alex's wheelhouse, but I always encourage my clients to explore all options and it may strike an idea you weren't expecting.


Since my last post, Spring has sprung and everyone is going gaga over bright colors.  I'm a sucker for power punching bold hues as much as the next girl, but today is all about Khaki.  No, not the pant style but the color. While walking around Barracks Road in Charlottesville last night, I saw a chic young mom in a Khaki Maxi Dress and was moved to make a scheme after this simple but elegant pallet.  I went straight to Etsy and began looking through some current items my favorite stores were offering. Check out what I came up with...

This aisle runner paired with flower petals softens the hard wood floor and gives some depth to the room.

Bridesmaid's Dress

This gorgeous dress is not only high fashion but transformable.  
It's so in vogue to have the same color dress on all your gals with slight differences.  
This dress is perfect for individuality.

I know one of my Brides has a Ring Bearer that will be too young to walk.  A wagon like this is a great solution, plus you can reuse it for the reception.  Fill it with Flip Flops for dancing the night away, Blankets for chilly nights or just have it on hand to keep the kids busy while their food is served.
