Once Upon A Time | A Fairy Tale Wedding Inspiration | A Closer Look At Lela New York's Box Luxury Invitations

Hi all! Today we wanted to share with you a closer look into the fairy-tale inspired luxury invitation designed by Lela New York!

When I was first asked to create the luxury invitations for a dinner party that would be inviting the top of the wedding industry, I knew it had to be unique in a big way. The theme we were going with was "Enchanted Forest" and the colors chosen were rich purples and fun golds and greens!
I wanted guests to be wowed when they opened up their luxurious boxed invites and want to come to this festive celebration. I sketched out some ideas first that included initial thoughts and colors. The finish product as you can see is pretty close. I decided to use a boxed invitation that the guests can later use as a keep sake and included a real mirror on the top lid that was screen printed with the words, "Mirror, mirror on the wall, the time has come to celebrate fall." It was a great line and would immediately lead the reader to want to read further and hinted at our fairy tale theme. The actual invitation card was printed on a gold paper and die-cut into an apple shape that spoke of the Snow White character and was later repeated in the decor at the dinner party. The end result was a luxury invitation that was screen printed in deep eggplant forest patterns and boxed in a lovely box that made an amazing intro to this great event!

Once Upon A Time Fairy Tale Wedding Hair Inspiration

In continuation of sharing with all of you Fairy Tale wedding inspiration, we wanted to share another important wedding detail...wedding day hair! I love all of these whimsical and "enchanted" hairstyles, especially with added accessories like crystals or flowers. Also, I am loving the birdcage veil! Isn't it so pretty?! I love the look of soft, tousled curls, but the loose and "messy" boho chic updos are so feminine and glamorous. What do you think? Which style is your favorite?

Thursday Trends | Flip Book Wedding Favors

Photo booths have always been a great way for both the bridal party and guests to remember and take home memories of your wedding day. But, what if you could make those pictures come to life?! Now you can with Go Flip Yourself flip books! Your guest will have about 30 seconds to leave a video clip which is then turned into a 60 page custom flip book. This is such a fun wedding favor and we believe will be a big trend in the next wedding season! Take a look at the video below to see how flip books work. Also, be sure to check out their latest addition, the green screen flip books, which allows you to customize your background! This is such a fun idea that will be sure to wow your guests.

Also, be sure to take a look at a conversation with the bride below!

Cake: Sylvia Weinstock
Wedding Dress:Francesco Fino- Milano
Hair: Julien Farel Salon - Elvin Arvelo
Makeup: Georgio Fernandez - Lady Lash Salon, Delray Florida ( I flew him up)
Band: Hank Lane - Michael Hart Band

L: After all the stressful planning, what would you say was your favorite part of your wedding day?
A: We were going to have pictures before the church. So the photographers planned a special moment where he would see me for the first time. We had a moment just us.

L: Are there any other special moments you would like to share?
A: My husband and I took dance lessons for seven months before the wedding. So besides performing our first dance I changed half way through the reception and we performed a Tango for our guests. They were so surprised they did not even know it was me at first.
Another special moment was at the end when the band played the song New York, New York and my guests got in a circle and started doing an impromptu kick line with us in the middle. It was the perfect ending to a New York Fairy Tale Wedding.

L: Looking back upon all the months of planning and your wedding day, do you have any advice for future brides?
A: As much planning and prepping you do before hand you have to let everything go the day of. It will all work out. You need to spend your wedding day in the moment because it goes by so fast.
