GSS Wedding Inspiration Board :: Black & White Lace

You really can’t go wrong with a classic Black and White wedding color palette.  The color combination of Black and White is so classy.  You can incorporate almost any theme into a Black and White wedding color palette.  We chose to add in a little romance and softness with some lace.  We’re absolutely adoring how this board turned out!  Oh so CHIC!

GSS Wedding Inspiration Board :: Black & White :: Pinstripes & Polka Dots

Happy Monday, Lovelies!!!  Today’s  inspiration board started out as a classic Black and White wedding… but we found it quickly started having a  vintage 1950’s feel.  So we ran with it and began incorporating the pinstripes and polka dots.  Minus bright colors and Tommy Guns, this board looks like it came straight out of Dick Tracy!  We LOVE this board!  It’s so fun and flirty- yet super classic with the black and white!

GSS’s things We LOVE :: Beyond White’s Whimiscal Window Pane Wedding Seating Charts

Last year we showed you an awesome idea for your wedding reception seating chart using a repurposed window pane.  (You can see that post by clicking here.)  This can easily be recreated for your own wedding.  Just find an old window pane at your local junk yard (or a new one at a home improvement store (think Home Depot or Lowe’s) and roughing it up with sandpaper to look old) and a paint marker from Hobby Lobby or Michael’s.  Then, in your best handwriting, write the table numbers … [Read More…]

GSS Wedding Inspiration Board :: It’s a Nice Day for A… WHITE Wedding!

It was suggested to me that I make the inspiration board for this week an all White wedding.  I have to be honest, I used to shudder at the thought of an ALL White wedding.  I mean, should Bridesmaids wear the same color as the Bride? Wouldn’t that be a HUGE wedding faux pas?  Many Brides think this way.  They want to be the only gal in White at her wedding- which is totally understandable.  But if you’re a bride who thinks outside the box and doesn’t mind letting your ladies wear White as … [Read More…]

GSS Do It Yourself :: Paper Flower Bouquet

Not too long ago we showed you a fun project to make a bouquet out of PAPER! We put out origami skills to the test and made one to show you! This is a great alternative to a real flower bouquet that will last a very long time. We used a few fun things to make this a fall inspired bouquet. With the purple hues and greenery, it paired well with the vintage paper we used to make the flowers. This is a perfect eco-friendly DIY project for your wedding. We always like to reuse, re-purpose, and create … [Read More…]

GSS Featured Wedding :: Pradhna & Patrick Colorful Indian Wedding :: Cory Ryan Photography

Talk about color! Our jaws hit the floor when we received this Texas Indian wedding submission from Cory Ryan Photography. There was so much emotion captured, so many colors, and so many beautiful images. We wanted to show you this wedding to its fullest, but alas, we had to narrow it down some. Cory did a fantastic job with this wedding and we are ecstatic to share it with you. Here are some thoughts from her :: This was the first Telugu south Indian wedding I had ever shot. Over the span of 14 … [Read More…]

GSS Wedding Inspiration Board :: It’s a Nice Day for A… WHITE Wedding!

Wouldn’t that be a HUGE wedding faux pas?  Many Brides think this way.  They want to be the only gal in White at her wedding- which is totally understandable.  But if you’re a bride who thinks outside the box and doesn’t mind letting your ladies wear White as well, your wedding could be an absolute showstopper.  An all White wedding looks so elegant, clean, sophisticated, classy AND sexy and is perfect for any season of the year!  After making this inspiration board, even though I LOVE color- just a little bit or a lot…  I think I’ve been persuaded to the White side!  What’s your opinion of having an all White wedding?

GSS Inspiration Board :: Winter Wonderland

Don’t you just love the majestic beauty of winter?  Especially when everything around you is blanketed in snow?  It looks like a clean white canvas, free to be colored as you wish.  That’s exactly what we were thinking when we created this Winter Wonderland Inspiration Board.  With a white background and a little lighting, you can change the color and create the mood of your preference.  Also, winter just screams “lavish” to us for some reason.  Maybe it’s how the ice forms off of tree branches and houses and glistens beautifully like diamonds…  And you know diamonds are a girl’s best friend…
