As a wedding expert and blogger for 3/4 of a decade, I've seen quite a few wedding books over the years. Some are informational, and some are just pretty. Today I want to share with you a book that is the best of BOTH!
Weddings in Color was released yesterday by Chronicle Books and it's sure to secure a spot in my favorite wedding books of all time. The creative geniuses behind this book, Vané Broussard of Brooklyn Bride and Minhee Cho of Paper + Cup Design really outdid themselves with this one, y'all!
Not only is this book packed with tons of incredible ideas — 500 of them, to be exact — but it's incredibly styled and perfectly coordinated in a spectrum of hues that will delight your eyes and minds while you plan your wedding details. Joined with fellow creative NYC-based powerhouses like photographer Jainé Kershner of Brklyn View Photography and stylist extraordinaire Michelle Edgemont, they've created a book which is incredibly inspiring for both its stunning visuals and the creative ideas it contains.
I was lucky to attend the official book launch party last night in Brooklyn at the West Elm in DUMBO. Cue my extra excitement because I'm obsessed with West Elm. They had a beverage table with these colorful and modern wedding themed napkins:
And I nearly died over the precious mini cupcakes and donuts that Nine Cakes provided for the evening. I only got a pic of the cupcakes because I totally ate all the donuts. Not really… but I wanted to. ?
It was a fab little gathering in one of my favorite stores. I even eyeballed a few items that I plan to add to my Christmas list this year, as well as some adorable gift ideas! (LOVE WEST ELM SO HARD.) First on my list will be the metallic clutches that come in gold, silver or rose gold. Obsessed. Perfect for bridesmaids gifts, too. I have a feeling these will be HOT sellers this season so you might wanna snatch some up. *wink*
Sorry for that tangent but I literally couldn't help myself. So much cuteness! (Going to buy one or two online now…)
Anywho… at the party the talented book authors took some time to sign copies of their book, and were seated in front of this adorable flower wall made from fresh blooms hung on kraft paper with washi tape. It was quite lovely! Great for a wedding photobooth backdrop or even as a ceremony altar, don't you think?
So why am I telling you all of this (other than to brag on my super talented friends?) — well, it's because the kind folks at Chronicle have offered up a copy of the book for me to give away to one lucky reader here at The Budget Savvy Bride! One of you will win a sparkling new copy of this gorgeous wedding book, and I can't wait for you to get your hands on it. See the details below on how to enter, and best of luck!
