Wedding Style | Top 10
Every day, I browse hundreds of blogs, Instagram posts, and pins looking for unique wedding ideas and stylish trends. These are my fave finds from the month. If you attended the Durango Wedding Expo last year, you saw the live painter and caricature artist in action. I love seeing these artists showcasing their creative talents at weddings across the country. The flower pot seating display and Converse favors are fun ideas I hope to see more of this wedding season.
1. ESCORT CARDS
Spicy blackberry jalapeno margaritas also served as escort “cards” with individuated calligraphed glasses.

2. LOVE NOTE GUEST BOOK
Instead of having a traditional guest book, this couple addressed each of the postcards to their home and asked their guests to mail them with a ‘love note’ that would be waiting for the couple when they returned from their mini-moon. The couple is still getting postcards back, a few each week, and it lets them relive the wedding each time they receive one.

7. LIVE PAINTING
A live painter captured the magic of the ceremony and the breathtaking view. The artist later transferred to the reception with guests to complete the painting – a fun interactive detail as guests marveled at the masterpiece coming to life!

8. CONVERSE FAVORS
Guests popped on their very own personalized pair of Converse trainers during the reception. Definitely, a wedding favor that will get used again and again.
