With temperatures dropping (hopefully soon in California!), coffee trends are back in full swing and we've come across some adorable and sweet coffee options for your wedding decor. Who doesn't love a cappuccino on a nice cool night or an espresso shot to get you in the mood for some more dancing? We just love the time and thought put into these coffee creations and are more than excited to share them with our readers... enjoy!

Top 10 Trending Wedding To Dos!

posted by Sarah

We did some digging and found the scoop on what's hot this season for wedding planning. What does that mean for you? Well, we worked overtime to make sure your wedding hits the mark! Whatever your budget or style is, we're confident there is a trend on the list that will work for your Big Day!

1. Calligraphy

Gorgeous, flowing, handwritten touches pump up the romance of any occasion. Calligraphy style invitations and event signage may be traditional, but these contemporary styles are anything but.

2. Organic florals

While we’re all going eco friendly in everything from food choices to cars, let your wedding go green with organic, free flowing florals. Long garlands and flower crowns pump up the romance.

3. Blush/rose gold

Speaking of pumping up the romance, what is more romantic than the palest of shade of pink? Blush dresses, rose gold and a pink lip will make you feel like you just stepped out of a fairy tale.

4. Metallics

All that glitters IS gold! 2015 is sure to be full of glitz and glam in everything from invitations to aisle runners.

5. Laser cut

Looking to up the ante at your soiree? Make sure to include a laser cut sign or two.

6. Monochromatic

Up the drama and pack a visual punch with a monochromatic color palette.

7. Texture

Don't let your wedding fall flat! Ruffles, lace, and wood all add texture and interest.

8. Non-Traditional

Let your personality shine! Weddings are becoming less and less traditional and more unique to the bride and groom. No one says you have to serve cake, have matching bridesmaid dresses or a tight up-do. Make your wedding one of a kind.

9. Intimate & Informal

Speaking of non-traditional, more and more couples want just want to throw a big party. How often do you get all of your loved ones in one place? Simple, intimate ceremonies are followed by the ultimate party.

10. Vintage Inspired

While burlap and lace have been around for a few years, couples are adding industrial metals, organic linens and art deco design elements to take their guests back in time.

Chalkboard Wedding Ideas {Sketch Some Fun Into Your Day!}

posted by April

Chalkboard art is pretty much everywhere these days! Coffee mugs, furniture, doors, even entire walls in homes are coated with chalkboard paint for the artist in us to create a temporary masterpiece. In the world of weddings, chalkboard art is perfect for invitations, ceremony decor, cuisine menus, dessert tables... you name it! However, we believe the key to incorporating chalkboard art into your wedding is keeping it a simple addition with subtle hints instead of letting it define your entire wedding theme. Add just a few touches alongside some country chic or rustic inspired decor and you've got yourself a stunner! Here are just a few of our favorite ways to integrate chalkboard art into your beautiful day:

This large faux chalkboard art creates a stunning & beautiful backdrop for photography.

We love added color to chalkboard art.  Especially in this classic country style buffet sign.
