Lets talk about Color & Whats inspiring us this season
I just returned from Florida where I was inspired by vibrant fruits, which are fresh, crisp and colorful. Apparently I am not alone in this as Tangerine Tango was named the 2012 color of the year by Pantone.
We love this color because it is fresh for spring and pairs naturally with other great spring colors such as kiwi green, Lilac, rich raspberry, peach and banana. It’s a great color even when used alone in various shades.
How to translate our inspiration into your wedding fashion & décor
Because each bridesmaid has different skin and
hair tones it can be risky trying to put them all in the same color. More and
more brides are selecting muted neutral toned dresses that can be re-worn. The
best way to incorporate your flair for fashion and passion for color is with
accessories and floral bouquets.

As you see when you pair a vibrant bouquet and accessorize with
bright colored jewelry it completely transforms the
ensemble. You can even get creative and add a fresh flower shoe clip to

Moving on to your Table Decor
Your spring table setting should remind guests of a renewed energy and the optimism from the promise of a brighter day which is why we all love spring so much.
As you know Elite Events specializes in Event Design and Coordinating. Because flowers are such a large part of each events design we have expanded our services and added the very talented florist Sharon Johnson to our staff. She has created this centerpiece which is a celebration of spring by incorporating circus roses, along with green fuji mums, parrot tulips, grape hyacinth and crab tree blooms, that are in currently blooming for the spring season . Wrapped in a natural birch bark, this floral arrangement makes the perfect spring statement for any occasion.

Apply the same concept you did with fashion when dressing your table by using neutral linens and napkins and letting the flowers or fruit be the vibrant focal point. Do not be afraid to use texture in your fabrics, just because the color is neutral does not mean the fabric has to be dull or boring.

April Showers bring May flowers
Although the word rain is a terrible thing to
say as an Event Coordinator it is our job to make sure you and your guests are
prepared to enjoy yourself no matter what spring may bring.
Gift your bridesmaids these adorable Vera
Bradley umbrellas from the fabulous fiddlesticks in Levis Commons.
They will add a pop of color and fun element to your photos and are very practical!
If you are having an outdoor ceremony, secure a rain location and make sure to plan all the logistics of set up time.
Communication is key, so make sure your guests are reminded that they will be outdoors and to dress accordingly. Have the rain location information printed and sent with your invitation then Ask for cell phone numbers on RSVPs that way if you need to change locations at the last minute your planner can send out a group text with the info.
Last but not least we hope that this Handy tool we have created might assist you remembering the Spring Trends we just touched on
