Wedding Favors; shawls


We love these individually wrapped shawls. It’s a great way to make sure guests stay warm for those gorgeous outdoor weddings. Weather can be fickle and change on a dime, so why not be ready? Brides can mix and match to incorporate the color palette of the wedding. They can be a wonderful inexpensive way to cater to the guests and keep the color scheme flowing throughout the wedding. Plus the shawls are a cozy favor for guests to keep wearing even after the big day. It is such a cute and lasting piece of the design.

Wedding Table Numbers


This is a great idea if you are having water (or wine!) on the tables.  The bottles can double as the table numbers.

Romantic Vintage Wedding Inspiration Board

In lieu of a boring introductory post, I thought it might be nice for The Stylish Soiree to enter the blog world with a bang. Though there are previous posts, those were just transfers from my personal blog, Shopaholica, not new blogs for The Stylish Soiree.  {Insert shameless plug here: If you too are fashion and food-obsessed, check it Shopaholica sometime.} Aaaand we’re back:

The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite novels thanks to the glitz, romance and decadence of the 20s. I originally envisioned a Great Gatsby theme for my own wedding, but once we chose the venue it no longer seemed appropriate. After creating this pretty inspiration board though, in hindsight perhaps I should have just found another venue, hehe.
