Here are a few great ideas that we are loving as inspiration to think outside of the
box bouquet when choosing your arrangements on your big day. So many people fall into the roses and peonies trap because that’s what is circulating on all of the wedding boards, BUT don’t be afraid to make a statement and do something different! There are so many options, and they all vary by season. Ask your florist what flowers are best for your time of year. They will be able to steer you in the right direction and help make your wedding as unique and beautiful as possible!

The Opening Ceremony of the Cannes Film Festival is much like the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics. Excitement is felt throughout the crowd. Anticipation is at an all-time high for the performers.

Dior was a popular choice as well as Chanel and Marchesa. The Opening Ceremony was home to many of our favorite looks including Nicole Kidman in Dior and Cara Delevingne in Burberry. Though, if we had to shell out medals… And the gold goes to Solange Knowles for killing it in Stéphane Rolland!

-As such avid “pinners” and fans of Pinterest (check ours out here!), we feel as though it’s our duty to share with you Astoria Road—the Pinterest of wedding registry. While Pinterest serves as an outlet to create, inspire, and mostly dream, Astoria Road is used to hopefully bring many of your dreams to life!
