Bliss Event Group

We’re so pleased today to be featuring an inspiration board prepared by the talented girls at Bliss Event Group.  They have an incredible talent for pulling together gorgeous details and design some of the most fabulous weddings I’ve come across.  Their blog is full of eye candy so you should definitely add it to your reader!

The girls at Bliss say:

One thing we accomplish early on for each bride is to create an inspiration board to capture the mood, colors and overall feel of her wedding. This particular IB just screams modern Southern charm {and so do the couple who inspired this collection!}. The bride and groom are two young professionals who appreciate the delicate look of the South and the modern take on weddings.

Each aspect of the wedding is about contrast and balance.  Many people are of the opinion that it is not possible to have a “Southern” wedding that is stylish and sophisticated.  That couldn’t be further from the truth.  With so many great ways to bend the wedding rules today, we are free to integrate much more personal style into any event.

Here’s a little more from Bliss on each photo {clockwise from the top left} and how it fits into the design scheme…

  • These cucumber martinis and basil mojitos from Brides provide not only the perfect colors, but are also refreshing and light on the palette.
  • Crisp white monogram napkins are a must for this event.  Find them at Pottery Barn.
  • Martha Stewart always has the best inspiration for cakes.  The lace look of this confection is perfection.
  • This do-it-yourself concept from Brides provides a touch of frills.
  • Ice cream is a favorite treat of this couple so we’ll serve sundaes with the cake.
  • This ceremony space {found in Grace Ormonde} captures a sophisticated look with white upholstered benches and a mirrored archway.
  • The pickle favors featured in Brides were an unexpected treat for guests to take home.
  • Guests look to the invitation to set the tone for the evening.  These are Kate Spade for Crane & Co. and they fit the bill perfectly.
  • White tulips provide the perfect combination of clean sophistication and Southern charm.
  • A white 1949 Jaguar would be the perfect escape at the end of the night.
  • This beautiful Amsale gown is a great example of this collection of thoughts.
  • Tara Guerard designed this wedding where the groom’s grandmother provided these sweet treats for the dessert bar. 

We’ll be featuring more of Bliss and their sister company, Southern Wedding Style, this week so stay tuned!
