Welcome To The Weekend

Monday marked the unofficial start to summer and with the prettiness that graced the virtual pages of EAD this week (did you see this elegant gold, ivory, and greenery wedding inspiration?!), we are convinced that this is going to be one of the most inspiring and beautiful wedding seasons yet!  We hope you have a fabulous weekend!

    The “I Definitely Do” Birchbox

    We’re so excited to introduce you to the fabulousness that is Birchbox, and even more thrilled to announce the very first Birchbox and Style Me Pretty collaboration, curated especially for the wedding party, the “I Definitely Do” Birchbox! We’re absolutely loving Birchbox: in a nutshell, a subscription gets you a monthly box of goodies, filled with beauty and grooming samples customized just for you! This is a perfect gift idea for your bridesmaids to thank them for being amazing additions to your wedding party. And men, just so you don’t think you’re being left out, there’s a Birchbox Man option too—perfect for any groomsmen!

    The “I Definitely Do” Birchbox was curated with some amazing items, all centered around creating a natural glow. Being a beauty product junkie, I couldn’t wait to try them out. The Kerastaste Elixir Ultime tamed my frizz, while the Laura Geller Baked Blush was the perfect shade of pink. I especially adored the Deepa Gurnani beaded hair tie, as I’m constantly pulling my hair into a pony. Marcelle’s BB Beauty Balm left a golden glow and evened out my skin tone, and of course, La Fresh’s Eco Beauty face wipes perfectly cleaned off all of the product at the end of the day. Best of all, once you find samples you love from your box subscription, it’s easy to purchase the full-size product in the Birchbox shop.

    If you love discovering new beauty products, Birchbox is definitely for you. Grab yourself a subscription, or give it as a gift for your wedding party, and your first box will be the “I Definitely Do” Birchbox! This is one “thank you” gift we know they’ll appreciate!

    Head on over to my Instagram to learn how you can win your very own “I Definitely Do” Birchbox, along with full-sized versions of each of these amazing products and a set of beautiful bangles!

    Cobalt, Magenta & Petal Pink

    We love palettes that incorporate vivid colors in an elegant way, and today’s dreamy inspiration board does just that. With a beautiful mix of delicate blush, pale robin’s egg blue, and gold, we go from pale to colorful with the additions of vibrant magenta, rose petal pink, and cobalt. A small dose of garnet and a dash of navy keeps things anchored, and the end result is a wedding color palette that is perfect for all seasons!

    Elegant Gold + Ivory Wedding Inspiration

    There are only two words that do justice to this inspiration shoot: utterly divine. Captured by the wonderful Holeigh V Photography at the BOHEME Workshops, this romantic and elegant vignette is pure eye candy. Set at stately Hycroft Manor, the venue and its grounds inspired the design, which features soft hues of blush, ivory, muted lavender, and mixed metallics. Swaths of fabric are echoed throughout, from the dramatic ceremony arbor draped by Taffete Designs to flowing gowns by Samuelle Couture and Ines Di Santo. Climbing ivy was abundant in the lush tablescape and florals by Celsia Floral. We adore the touch of modernity in the cake by Anna Elizabeth Cakes and the vintage feel of the stationery suite from Christine Williams Calligraphy. Every detail is absolutely magical—we know you’ll fall in love with the images from Holeigh V Photography!
