Safari Themed Wedding Ideas: Leopard Print

It’s time to talk about animal print wedding themes. For those of you that follow us regularly, you know we love unique personalized wedding details. Safari themed weddings are definitely full of personalized wedding style and unique details. A couple weeks ago we discussed the beauty that is zebra print, now let’s discuss leopard print. Leopard print comes in a variety of colors but most weddings feature the standard black and white leopard print. From the wedding invitations to the animal print decorations, you can incorporate leopard bring into any part of your wedding.

Leopard Print Accessories

If you want to incorporate leopard print into your wedding, first decide how much is “too much”. A bold look would be to ask your bridesmaids to wear leopard print bridesmaid dresses with hot pink detail. While this sounds fun and exciting, it might be more appropriate for the bachelorette party instead. Leopard print is very cute for wedding accessories such as your wedding garter or heels. Let your bridesmaids pick pink or green wedding dresses and surprise them with simply leopard print earrings or shoes. This is a subtle way to incorporate leopard print into your wedding attire.

Outdoor Leopard Décor

When it comes to decorating your outdoor wedding venue with leopard print, you can use tissue paper pom poms and strings of mini lights to create a fun playful backyard theme. Combine your leopard print with white lace details for a cute vintage feel. Lace is feminine while leopard print is exotic and intriguing. Decorate your table with a lace tablecloth and leopard print table runner. If you’re really into the vintage look, use lace table cloths with burlap chair sashes. Then your leopard print décor can be the accent to spice up the theme. Leopard and lace is a great combination for a romantic outdoor venue. With a little lace, you can turn your leopard theme into a romantic 1920’s theme wedding!

Don’t Forget Desserts

If you read our zebra print blog you’ll know that animal print cupcake wrappers are a must have item! Decorate a yummy dessert table with your lace tablecloths and white cupcake stands. With lace coasters you can dish out delicious cupcakes with leopard print cupcake wrappers. They double as beautiful edible party favors if you give guests cupcake boxes to take them home in! Who doesn’t love a deliciously cute cupcake as an edible wedding favor?

When you create a leopard print wedding theme you’re destined to have a memorable wedding. The bold accessories and vintage décor will create a one-of-a-kind event. Lace and leopard is a feminine and romantic combination that can be incorporated into your bridal shower, wedding ceremony and reception. You can even give your bridesmaids cute leopard print phone cases to get them in the mood for your exotic party theme.

What do you think about this fun playful wedding theme? Not everyone could pull this style off.  If you had the opportunity to incorporate a leopard print into your wedding style, what leopard print accessory would YOU wear?

The Hunger Games Inspired Wedding Ideas

For the past few years, we’ve heard nothing but Bella and Edward related wedding news. Well, their wedding has come and gone and now we’re dying for the next literary couple to take center stage. Thanks to Suzanne Collins we have Katniss and Peeta from the Hunger Games to quench our need for a new wedding couple. The Hunger Games became a popular novel as soon as it reached shelves and it’s no surprised it’s quickly becoming an inspiration for themed weddings. The heroic couple can be incorporated into an outdoor woodsy theme with bow and arrows, nature themed décor and plenty of attire ideas stolen straight from the book.

Top 10 Alternative 2012 Bachelorette Party Ideas

Bachelorette Party Ideas

Alternative bachelorette party ideas are all the rage for 2012 weddings. Creative vacations and fun getaway ideas are becoming popular for treating the bride to be to a fun last single night out party. Here are the top 10 ideas for alternative bachelorette parties:

  1. Recently, destination bachelorette parties have expanded beyond Las Vegas to other exotic places such as Greece, Italy and beach getaways. Traveling to Europe seems to be getting slightly more affordable at this time of year and ‘the girls’ are taking advantage of cheap holiday flights.
  2. Why not go green by camping in a national park? Camping trips in the past have a been a fun bachelor party idea but there’s no reason that the girls can’t enjoy a fun night away in Sedona or Joshua Tree. Not crazy about spending time in a tent? There are plenty of outdoor cabins and luxury campsites available online for your eco-friendly bachelorette party.
  3. Give Back Bachelorette Parties: Service oriented parties are making a comeback. Brides are donating their time to give back to their community for a good cause. Using their time in a positive way is a great way to make an important impact for those less fortunate.
  4. Skydiving & Bungee Jumping Adventures! While we’ve never understood the obsession some people have with jumping out of planes, these adventures are becoming a popular adrenaline rush for bachelorette parties. Check something off your bucket list with all your best gal pals in tow.
  5. Kick back and relax at a girl’s bachelorette spa weekend. Take a trip to a local salon or plan a lavish spa retreat get away. Let your cares slip away while you’re covered in a mud wrap and massaged into relaxation. Treat your favorite bridesmaids to manicures and pedicures as a thank you for making your big day memorable.
  6. Not everyone can have Napa in their backyard but if you’re lucky you can have a wine and cheese getaway to Napa Valley for a special wine themed bachelorette party. Rent a nice limo bus for a responsible transportation tour to all the scenic spots.
  7. Photo session bachelorette parties are all the rage right now. Boudoir photos are a great wedding day present for your new husband. Or similar to photos you took with all your girlfriends in high school, bachelorettes are treating their best girl friends to girlfriend photos. Scrapbook all your new photos for a fun way to remember and thank your bridesmaids.
  8. Everyone loves a laugh and comedians love playfully teasing bachelorettes. Sitting front row at a comedy club theme bachelorette party is a great way to get your bride-to-be plenty of attention!
  9. Walk the red carpet at a new movie premiere in Hollywood. Getting dolled up is a fun glamorous excuse to dress up for a special occasion. Can’t make it out to Los Angeles with all your girls? Try planning a special showing of chick flick movies at your local movie theatre for a special movie night bachelorette party theme.
  10. 10.  Trying to stay healthy and in shape for the big day? Plan a yoga theme bachelorette party with a yoga instructor or Pilates classes. These classes are great for non-drinkers or pregnant guests because you can abstain from alcohol and partying.

Bachelorette Party Supplies

Any of these fun unique bachelorette party ideas are doable with a small or large party of girls. Be creative and use your imagination because your special girl is only getting married once! There are plenty of resources for how to put together a memorable bachelorette party on the internet and at local event planners.

A Special Vintage Modern Stylized Photo Shoot: Part 2

We were fortunate enough to be part of a lovely stylized photo shoot with our friends at Veils & Fairytales Event Planning and Mariela Campbell Photography. We were incredibly impressed with the photos that we saw afterwards. These wedding photographs are stunning and unique. The decor was shabby but chic and perfect for an outdoor rustic wedding. Planning a country wedding requires blending rustic themes and shabby vintage themes. Unique barn weddings are great for any season because they can be decorated with different colors. Our favorite color combination is rose pink and white. White and pink colors are perfect for vintage weddings because they’re romantic and classic.

NEW Vintage Freestanding Wooden Numbers For Rustic Weddings!

A few weeks ago we did a post on unique table numbers and how to decorate with wooden letters. Due to great feedback we’ve brought in NEW wooden numbers that stand by themselves! These are great for shabby but chic weddings and rustic outdoor events. Decorate with any color paint or primer with a clear glaze for a wood look. They come in a light wood color that can go straight from wrapping to table without even changing anything! If you’re feeling really creative then you can decorate them with moss or collage paper to make them more personal and unique.

Another really creative way to decorate these cute wooden table numbers would be to cover them in decorative washi tape. Japanese washi tape comes in a variety of colors and patterns and you can table the whole table number to make your personal style and motif. Or if you want a glamorous table number try decorating these with rhinestone ribbon rolls.

If you follow us on Pinterest you’ve seen our “Winter Wonderland Wedding” pinboard with all of our favorite white wedding decoration ideas.
