Terica emailed me looking for inspiration for her late spring wedding. She and her husband to be are both big fans of the colour red. He’s a University of Georgia fan while she is a member of a sorority with red and cream colours. They both love red velvet cake and want to incorporate the colours of the cake into their brunch wedding.
I love the fresh use of red and cream. A room filled with tables covered in white table cloths, topped with red tin pails filled with bunches and bunches of white flowers. A bouquet of simple, sweet poppies and a pair of red shoes set this board in motion.
A brunch wedding should serve light and delightful food- with sweet red velvet cake and white chocolate covered strawberries to finish.
Red velvet cake from Brides, bride from Allison C Photography, tables from Artfool, candy cane truffles from Brides, gown from Alex Perry via Bride To Be, poppies from Brides, photo from Eyespy Photography via Snippet and Ink, escort cards from The Knot.
A heads up for anyone using Qantas Frequent Flyer points for their honeymoon!
A new advertising campaign starts today inspired by the clear, strong messages from the likes of campaigns of KEVIN 07 and Barack Obama’s “Yes We Can”. The message? It’s Time To Choose
After March 31st you will not be able to transfer reward points from a lot of credit cards into your Qantas Frequent Flyer account. If you were planning to use those points for your honeymoon, transfer them before March 31st or you will lose the chance to gain the benefit of their program.
So now is the time to choose whether you will go with Qantas or choose another Frequent Flyer program. It’s up to you and it’s worth researching the benefits of each (Check out the Australian Frequent Flyer Forum for some good comparisons)
Check out the Qantas Frequent Flyer website to see how your cards will be affected and pass the word on to anyone you know who may also need to choose!
