During the past few months, one trend in particular has caught my eye and managed to hold my attention – hand painted watercolor wedding details.
I love them more than any average person should. I have swooned over watercolor menus, escort cards and favor tags. But, perhaps my most favorite hand painted details are created in the form of table number markers and custom signage. I am constantly brainstorming new and exciting ways to personalize a bride and groom’s big day. I tire quickly of anything generic or standard and feel as though I owe it to each of my couples to push myself, and therefore my business, to new heights each time I style a wedding. So, naturally, I decided that:
1. I can totally do this and
2. I should start right about, well, now.
So begin I did and here is a sneak peek of my foray into the world of watercolors.
Always a fan of simplicity, I opted for a dainty vine motif accented with a sampling of florals. My favorite number – four – rests below the swag and just inside the vines while assigning the table. Perfect for a garden themed wedding, I am delighted with what my very first date with an artist’s brush revealed.
I will continue painting as I prep for the bridal shows and weddings of 2013.
