Trend: Hashtag Weddings

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!

Lovella Loves…

Ombre cake. The universal love is no secret. There’s just something lovely about the degradation of pretty color coupled with confection. And while ombre icing is great and all, how about a little surprise inside? (After all, it’s what’s on the inside that counts, right?) And an ombre cake needn’t be only for big occasions; it’s something you can replicate with time and maybe a little practice. Amanda Rettke, author of Surprise-Inside Cakes, has a wonderful how-to on her blog. Enjoy!

Floral Love: Deep-Hued Calla Lilies

Nothing sets the tone of an event quite like plum, burgundy and black-colored calla lilies. In its shape, a dark-hued calla lily is stylish, an instant classic. It’s also romantic, holding a sort of magical quality. But at the same time it’s mysterious. They say a photo is worth a thousand words; a calla lily is, too. These qualities come with a cost, however, in monetary and health form. Calla lilies are notoriously higher-priced, which makes them an especially luxurious addition to a centerpiece or bouquet. And it cannot be overlooked that calla lilies contain oxalic acid and are poisonous to humans and animals if ingested. We love the look of a mass of calla lilies, whether neatly stacked or packed together in a bouquet. Not to say a single calla lily, say, in a bud vase, can’t hold its own; it can. Admire. Enjoy!
