    I love that logo. I would put that on the cover of your program. Use a more vintage/old world font and add crystals to the i's on your name. You can also do that with your name on the program. You can get crystals cheap on ebay. And I saw a message in the bottle invite with palm leaves that would be great for you. I'll look for a picture.

    I do have a logo that I had made when I sent out my STDs, I had made it.  I could definitely work on a new one that could be used for anything on the actual wedding day.

     

    This is the logo I had made:

        To me this reads vintage beach. I think an awesome rsvp for you could be based on an old sign they had at the beaches. Try one of the free font websites and search for what looks like a vintage, antique font to you. Pair it with a clean, simple font and use images that reflect the beachy look (your palm tree, palm leaves, shells, ect) Then use your colors where you want the highlight, like your names, the location. If you don't do the rhinestone accents on the paper maybe use a ribbon or other embellishment that gives you a glam feel. A charm (I'm using charms because I make jewelry) buttons or brooches with an antique bling can be used as the pull to get the message out of the bottle. Ebay & Etsy are great sources for inexpensive options.

         

         

        @anudrm - Lol...Sorry...when I was helping my mom I realized all I have to do is approach this like I do Interior Design - and it works. You know how everyone creates Inspiration Boards? I had an amazing professor teach me to design with mood boards and concepts and rules. True designing is done from the tip of your head to the bottom of your feet. You wouldn't like that beautiful designer dress if the celebrity had on beat up old sneakers. Same with design, if you choose an image that has the feel you want, then every single decesion you make goes back to the concept of that image. I'm thinking I could get pretty good at wedding planning with my background in design :)

         

        Pm-ing you now! :)

          Dominique,

          The Bridal Sash looks Like Etsy Work? Do you know who the seller is?

          I love it!

          You can balance your ceremony arch like this by using the bamboo structure and either vintage fabrics or lighting in your colors. You can also add beach and glam by having an illusion backdrop with shells and crystals intermixed, you could even add orchids in your colors if the budget allows for it or you don't mind using fake. If so you could make that yourself and bring it along, shouldn't be too costly.

          A gray or muted tones of pink and orange beachy dress with vintage and colored accents (pearls, feathers, lace, crystal ect) would be beautiful.

          In this image you see how the vintage outfits pops on the beach? Now please don't send your guys down the ailse looking like T-Birds, remember balance. You could do this as with vintage dresses in orange and pink - this would work best with mismatched dresses (try ebay and etsy)

          For your bouquet, a tropical orange and pink arrangment of flowers could be tied with lace and you can add vintage brooches to the handle. You could add real or rhinestone shells in there as well.

           

          Hope this is making sense. Do you have a logo yet? That should include all your styles.

            Hey venus909!

             

            I LOVE the Old Hollywood/vintage theme! I actually just designed a custom necklace for a destination wedding bride and earrings. I've included a few pics. Accessories are great punctuations for a vintage look (as well as birdcage veils) :) If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. Congrats!!

             



             

            So I need some thoughts/opinions.... I'm not sure where the best place to post this is, but since it has to do with the theme/decor of the wedding I figured this would be my best bet.

             

            I'm planning my beach ceremony/reception at the Jellyfish restaurant in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic... here is a link incase you would like to see the venue (http://www.jellyfish...om/gallery.html).

            I have been looking around for ideas for the theme/look/feel that I would like for the wedding.  And I found this site the other day that did what they called a "vintage glam" wedding photo shoothttp://www.stylemepr...rial-shoot 5456 and the bride in the photo shoot has the same dress as mine!  (it's actually the first time I find a pic of it on someone other than the magazine model).  I really like the vintage-y look (not the necklace she is wearing though!)

            So I started thinking...  would a "vintage glam" wedding work on the beach?  Also, my colors are orange and fuschia and a touch of light blue... how would that work?

            I need some ideas... how can I pull it off?  Would I still be able to do Bling...or would I need to tone it down with pearls?

            HELP!!! Any ideas or suggestions would help

            and just for fun... here is a link to a pic of the bride that shows the whole dress :-) http://www.stylemepr...ry/photo/353126

             

            THANKS!

                Oh, one more thing (maybe for an engagement shoot or something), vintage luggage always helps the whole Old Hollywood glamour jet-set look!

                  @ J and G - it is! The headband shoppe - comes with matching shoe clips! http://www.etsy.com/..._facet=handmade

                   

                  @ Bondgirl - I SUPER love that jewelry set!!! and I think vintage suitcase would be a perfect prop for destination and vintage!! Maybe as an image on paper for something or a card box. Ooo I found mini suitcases once - they could be like OOT bags!

                    Thanks so much, dominiqueamber! I have components that I've been selecting throughout my travels that work perfectly to design vintage jewelry!! You are right, the vintage suitcases are amazing little props and can definitely worked into the theme (and the OOT idea is great!) :)

                      Thanks dominiqueamber! Throughout my travels I love buying components to design jewelry and the vintage-theme is definitely one of my favorites! The luggage would definitely be great to incorporate into the theme and a great idea for OOT bags (as long as you can find something lightweight to transport! Vintage glam ROCKS! :)
