Potent and bold colors like red and purple are combined to make a very strong wedding palette. This mood board sets the tone for a fabulous evening fete set downtown, surrounded by the warmth of your guests and candlelight.

Float On By: Set the mood for your outdoor ceremony with the flicker of candlelight bouncing off the water. {Source}

Tower of Power: Dramatic and demanding, this cupcake tower with a two tiered cake makes for a great centerpiece for a buffet of sweets. {Source}

Appletini: To cut cost of the bar, feature a personalized cocktail. If you got in engaged in NYC, call it the Big Apple. Or if your fiance loves jokes, call Monkey Business and hang little plastic cocktail monkeys. Talk to your venue or bartender about creating a unique drink and showcase your style on your day.

Calla Me Bad: A bouquet of dark and succulent purple calla lilies. A bouquet with the same flowers, especially all of striking callas, will be a dramatic statement. {Source}

One Hit Wonder: Sumptuous satin  {After Six; $150}

That’s Clutch: House your necessities (lipstick, bandaids, Tylenol etc) in a fashionable clutch. {Dessy; $16}

By Candlelight: To follow the floating candle theme from the ceremony, line your reception tables with large glass vessels filled with water and topped with a floating candle. Calla lilies are exquisite flowers, but also carry a hefty price tag. To cut costs, use one stem and immerse in water. {Source}

Three’s Company: Add a trio of candles to your buffet tables and reception tables for warmth and decorative touch. Line them up for a more striking visual. {Ikea; $3)

Stick Your Neck Out:  Silk shantung cravat will dress up the neck of you favorite men. Cravats are an alternative to bow ties and ties. {Dessy; $30}

Glass House: Hang these bulbous glass mini-houses from large branches to help frame the reception room with a romantic glow {CB2; $4}

Table Manners: Layered linens show off contrasting colors to add another dimension to the space. Gossamer fabric covers the chair mimic the draped look of the table. {Source}

Invite Only: The invitation is the usually the first thing your guests will see. This helps set the tone for your backyard bash or upscale gala. This particular invitation is not longer available (or hidden, as I can’t find the source). However, just browsing through Etsy and other invitation ships (Invitation Consultants), I found a several substitutions, which may be a better option.

Peep Show: White shoes are no longer the standard. For pictures and the ceremony, show off your tootsies with a peep toe. The constrast of the white dress with a bright colored shoe makes for a fab photo. Then, treat your feet to a comfortable shoe so you can dance the night away. {Zappos; $85}
