February Favorites


I know it’s technically mid-February, but since it’s our first official post for February, I thought hello February was fitting.

I always liked the month February, {not just because it’s my birthday month ;)} but also because it means spring is just around the corner. And spring weddings! So in honor of  the recent engagements, and of the brides currently planning their weddings, here are a few of our favorite things for February. Hope this helps with your planning!

February Wedding Colors we Adore

Blush & Rose Gold



Cake Idea we Love

I am not a really big frosting girl {sorry for all of you that are!} and lately i’ve been seeing more and more naked cakes- and I lOVE the idea!


They can still be just as beautiful as fully decorated cakes. I also love how this wedding had both frosted and naked cakes!

I also think that mini cakes are a great idea, bit sized and no need to cut them!

February’s First Dance Pick

Unfortunately I can’t post this song since it was just on the deluxe version of the album. However, for all the Taylor Swift lovers out there {like myself} there is FINALLY a perfect wedding song. On the album 1989, there is a song called “You are in love”. Lyrics include:

Morning, his place
Burnt toast, Sunday
You keep his shirt
He keeps his word
And for once you let go
Of your fears and your ghosts
One step, not much, but it said enough
You kissed on sidewalks
You fight and you talk
One night he wakes, strange look on his face
Pauses, then says, you’re my best friend
And you knew what it was, he is in love

Trust me, it’s a beautiful song. It is worth a listen if you are still searching for the perfect song!

Different Idea we came across


Recently baby’s-breath has become more popular, this adds a twist to it. Spray painting baby’s-breath changes it completely, and you can have it match your wedding colors! Love this idea and can’t wait to see it at an upcoming wedding we are coordinating!

Dress of the month!

This Dessy Collection style 2844 features an empire waist and off the shoulder sleeves made of lux chiffon. This gown comes in 88 different colors, and you can even get a free color swatch directly from Dessy. Which is great so you can match all of your decor to it!


We hope you enjoyed our February picks! Happy Planning!
