Social media has transformed the way we experience, share and remember life’s events. We at Lovella are big fans of using hashtags to corral photos that would more than likely go unnoticed. Hashtags allow us to see what happens from another person’s perspective at our salon, and with surprisingly minimal effort on our behalf. The experience is the same for weddings. Why create a custom hashtag for your wedding? -Experience the event from your guests’ perspectives. Bonus: Refer to their captions for sentiments and details that may otherwise go unshared. -Corral wedding photos from your big day for free. -Social media photos are a nice, more casual supplement to professional wedding photographs. –Promotion is easy. Add your custom hashtag to wedding stationery materials, a large chalkboard or the like at the ceremony, in a frame near the guestbook, or even on each table with the centerpieces. Get creative!

In 2012 we wrote: Candles can beautify a mundane setting, or illuminate an already-fantastic one. Not much has changed since then, except we have tons of fresh new inspiration to share. Candles can breathe romance and elegance into your wedding ceremony or reception. They never go out of style, photograph beautifully, and can be easy on the wallet. Candles set the mood for any event and are incredibly versatile. Open flames not permitted at your venue? Couple with glassware like hurricane glasses and your problem is solved. Enjoy the inspiration!

After the wedding ceremony, it’s imperative that the stars of the party are placed at the helm: a sweetheart table. Brides, adorn your table with candles, florals, miscellaneous props, what have you, but be sure your space is befitting of a newly married couple. After all, you are to be treated like royalty — even if only for a day.

It’s time to change the way people look at burlap. Yes, that “plain-woven, coarse fabric of jute, hemp, or the like” (source). Burlap has come a long way. No longer used just for utilitarian purposes, burlap’s being integrated into wedding themes and decor more than ever. Especially now that it’s spring, there’s no better time for it. The fabric lends an earthy, natural feel to decor. Bonus: it’s neutral in color. Another bonus: it’s uber affordable. Advice: don’t make burlap the leading star of the show. Instead, make it a fabulous supporting part, an element so effortless that it gets lost in the ensemble of the entire cast. Steal some of the inspiration below… and enjoy!

What sophistication! Parisa, Pretty Please Design owner, “prettified,” as she put it, so many of the details that played a part in her low-key bridal luncheon in Beverly Hills. We’re talking detail-upon-prettified-detail of white, gold and beige with lovely embellishments like burlap, pearls, white lace and raffia that gave this soiree sweet, sweet life. All the details, like personalized pencils, pearl-wrapped champagne flutes, and a cage featuring calligraphy to fill with bridal advice, made us swoon. We think they’ll do the same to you. Parisa, too, is a Lovella bride. Look for her equally sophisticated wedding feature on our blog soon! In the meantime, enjoy all the lovely inspiration from Parisa’s pre-wedding lunch with the girls.
