We were so thrilled when Nashville, TN couple Kathy and Neil asked for our help with styling their wedding. They are so sweet, and laid back and share a love for cycling. Their wedding day boasted perfect weather, caring and hilarious family and friends and a personality that was all their own. We loved the Donut Tower and their awesome getaway in a pedicab, how appropriate!
Rachel, long time employee of ForYourParty, lives in Nashville and loves helping couples use FYP personalized products to perfectly accent the theme of their wedding day. Kathy and Neil opted for a casual, outdoor, brunch time wedding at a historic restaurant in the adorable Germantown neighborhood called Mad Platter. Marcia, the gracious hostess and owner of Mad Platter, helped with every detail of the wedding, from detailing the garden where the ceremony took place, to preparing the most delicious brunch that included fluffy biscuits with savory rosemary gravy. We decorated the garden with some of our favorite classic decor items. Some of our favorites included the white linen pennant banners, the trend party fans, and gold foil Mr. and Mrs. Banner. We also recruited our talented friend Meredith Eastburn, of Amaranthus Paper and Flora, to hand make custom paper flower bouquets for the Bride and Bridesmaid. They turned out lovely and were a hit among the guests. Also, this day would not have been complete without the talented photographers at Frozen Exposure, their work is gorgeous and they are also wonderful to work with.
Overall it was a dream-come-true wedding day and we wish Kathy and Neil a lifetime of happiness!

Woodland Theme Wedding Ideas
We love the rustic, woodland wedding trend. Earthy tones, organic lines, woodsy floral arrangements and sweet forest critter motifs give this theme an enchanted, romantic feeling.
If a dreamy forest wedding sounds wonderful to you (what’s more romantic than a walk in the woods with someone you love?) dig in and be inspired by the whimsical woodland wedding ideas featured in this post!
Shape your color palette based on the naturally occurring colors at your woodsy venue. We recommend drawing from these tones:
Greenery: Green Tea, Leaf, Hunter Green, Spruce
Woods: Sand, Brown, Espresso Brown. Gold
Wildflowers: Peach, Sunflower, Cranberry, Fuchsia, Amethyst, Violet
Sky: Navy, Stone Gray, Slate Gray, Sky Blue
Use what you love about the forest to inspire you. Do you love spotting owls, deer, or foxes? Are you inspired by stark white birch bark? Do you think initials carved in an aging tree are epically romantic? Integrate these rustic details in to your woodland wedding décor. A few of our favorite ideas include:
Cute Critter Cake Toppers—Use figurines of deer, foxes, owls or any favorite woodland creature to top your cake as a sweet, whimsical detail. Integrate similar motifs into your wedding invitations, napkins, thank you notes, and centerpieces.
Greenery—Use berry, floral, twine or greenery garlands to decorate your tables and alter. The garland theme can also be included in the design of your invitations and place cards. Integrating details such as leaves, and pine cones is also a great way to create an earthy ambience.
Woodland Plants- Consider using common woodland plants such as mushrooms, moss and ferns for your centerpieces, place settings and as details on your wedding invitation suite, favor bags and place cards.
Natural Wood – Use tree bark, logs, stumps and cross sections of wood to create beautiful centerpieces, appetizer displays and place card holders.

We can’t forget about our Riviera Matches! The feather artwork really takes them to the next level. Why haven’t we ever though to pair Shiny Rose Gold foil with our Natural Royal paper? A new favorite!

Wherever you’ve decided to have your wedding ceremony and reception, there are so many options when it comes to the exact location for your festivities. With so many details to consider, choosing a location can be overwhelming. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite options with details about each!
If you are looking for a more traditional venue, you can never go wrong with a beautiful church or cathedral. Churches typically don’t require a lot of additional decor. Choose a few large floral arrangements, a little something to line the aisle, but a huge benefit of the church location is that it itself can be the majority of the decor you will need!
Banquet Halls & Hotels
If church weddings aren’t your thing, but you still want a classic venue, try to find a large banquet hall or hotel with a beautiful ballroom. Not only will your wedding and reception be beautiful, most banquet halls will have accommodations ready for you: DJ, florist, catering, parking, etc.
If you’re getting married in the spring or summer months, why not try to have your wedding outdoors? There are so many incredible options when it comes to outdoor venues. Similarly to your more traditional, church wedding, you can get away with minimal decoration. There are typically no space limitations, unless you opt for a small, backyard wedding. Outdoor weddings are a beautiful opportunity to enjoy the weather. Just don’t forget to have a backup location in case of rain!
Maybe none of these locations strike your fancy? Be creative and try to find venues that aren’t so stereotypical. Perhaps a library, greenhouse, zoo, or even a museum! The possibilities are endless when it comes to choosing a location for your wedding, so don’t settle for something less than perfect!
This new color palette is sure to put a spring in your step. The beautiful, bright yellows, soft grays, and brilliant whites really make this sunshine-inspired palette come to life. Use our Mimosa and Dove Gray cocktail napkins with Matte Dove Gray or Slate and Matte Mimosa foil to achieve this look. Our striped straws and straw tags also add to this look with our Poptone Mimosa paper and Matte Slate foil. Don’t forget to coordinate your floral arrangements with your color scheme, as seen in the upper lefthand corner.
