7 Trendy Grooms Who Inspire Us All

Incorporating a little personal style into your groom’s attire will go a long way. Something as simple as a pop of color in the tie, a little texture on the suit, or bright socks can elevate the ensemble to make a bold or unique fashion statement! So let’s take a look back at some of our very favorite stylish grooms we’ve worked with over the years.

Hugh – Scottish-Inspired

This Scottish-inspired attire is to die for! Hugh had this vest custom made from his family’s heirloom tartan fabric. We love a good pop of color and texture! Studio Finch

Phil – Subtle Pop of Color

 

There’s something about a dark gray, fitted tux with a navy tie that we are always drawn to. Throw in a pop of color in the boutonniere to really elevate this classic attire.  Suzi Jacobs Photography

Brandon – Handcrafted Floral Tie

JessBrandon-JayneWeddings

This handcrafted floral tie and matching pocket square take this gray suit to the next level. Oh and did we mention it’s from our very favorite, Lonesome TravelerLonesome Traveler! Everything this girl makes is one-of-kind stunning, we’re obsessed.  Amanda Naylor Photography

Will – Pink Accents

A lot of grooms may shy away from pink, but don’t write it off just yet! These pastel pink tie accents with a navy, textured suit have us wondering why more grooms don’t wear pink. Christian Gideon

Blake – Textured Vest

We’re suckers for texture and can’t enough of Blake’s vest! The skinny, navy tie and light brown belt tie the whole look together to make a unique, slightly quirky statement.  Janelle Elise Photography

Martin – Floral Tie + Funky Tie Clip

E7C4685D-D784-472F-9D64-D183694DC867

For a spring or summer wedding, floral ties are definitely the way to go. Pair it with an interesting tie clip (like Martin’s rifle clip) for a unique personal touch. Pen Carlson

George – Classic + Elegant

 

There’s something so classic about a plain black tux. For those men who want to stick the basics, try adding in a bow tie instead of a tie to give this classic look a little more drama and personality. Sean Cook Photography

Rami – Purple + Navy

Navy and purple may be our favorite combination after seeing this groom knock it out of the park. And we can’t get over that slight texture in the tie, so perfect!

Unique Wedding Traditions

WeddingTraditions-Blog

When it comes to wedding traditions, most people think anything from the bouquet toss to lighting of a unity candle, but there are many more customs from around the globe that are often forgotten! Take a look at some of our favorite couples and their unique wedding traditions. If any of these customs strike your fancy, don’t be afraid to incorporate them into your big day, even if they’re outside of your heritage. After all, love is universal!

Henna (Mehndi) – Maaria + Anil

Husain_Rao_Studio_Finch_Slideshow6of305

Studio Finch
Henna, also called Mehndi, is a tradition held at many Hindu or Sikh weddings. The Henna ceremony is typically held on the eve of the marriage ceremony. Henna’s characteristic intricate designs are meant to symbolize joy and spiritual awakening. Sometimes the groom’s name or initials is incorporated into the mehndi pattern.

Hand-fasting/Celtic Knot Ceremony – Regina + Eric 

Heather Decamp Photography
Hand-fasting (or Celtic Knot Tying) dates back to ancient Celtic wedding ceremonies. Typically, a knot is tied around the clasped hands of the bride and groom but tying a knot together (as Regina + Eric chose to do) is also quite common. The material of the knot can be anything from silky ribbons, chords, or even fabric from an old keepsake. Many couples keep their knot displayed at home and some pass down their ribbons/ropes to their children on their wedding day.

Groom’s Cake – Kelly + Bryant

Originating in Victorian England, Groom’s cakes can be served at the wedding reception to offer a second flavor to guests, but sometimes they can be served at the rehearsal dinner instead. Groom’s Cakes are typically decorated to reflect the groom’s hobbies, favorite sports team, etc.

Horah – Katie + Jordan

Joey Kennedy Photography
Seen at traditional Jewish weddings, after the bride and groom make their grand entrance, they lead the guests into a dance, the Horah. During the Horah, guests lift the bride and groom onto chair and dance around them in a circle. We love this tradition, but we’ve seen our fair share of mishaps so we recommend this tradition early on in the night before the alcohol starts flowing.

Lion Dance – Melissa + Jason

The Lion Dance is a form of traditional dance in Chinese culture where performers mimic a lion’s movements in a costume. We’re obsessed with the rich color in these costumes! The lion dance is sometimes mistakenly referred to as dragon dance, but they are actually two different dances! The lion dance is typically operate with two dancers, whereas a dragon needs a few extra dancers because it’s much longer.

Shawn Mendes Fragrance Launch Lounge!

We had the awesome opportunity of working with Macy’s again this past week. And this time is was for a super special livestream with Shawn Mendes, complete with a lounging area, selfie station, scent bar, and prize wheel! We teamed up with Macy’s to help them with the styling of their lounge area for a special Q & A with Shawn Mendes!

Modern Bridal Styling

MB-193

Earlier this year our very own Nicole Lela began working on this Modern Bridal Styled Shoot and we think she knocked it out of the park! This shoot has some seriously gorgeous greenery, from the bouquet, to the table setting, and even a delicate wall installation, we’re in love! We worked with so many amazing vendors and they all had a hand in making this a success. These gorgeous photos (thanks Oh So Lovely Photography!) speak for themselves but here’s what Nicole has to say about her vision:

“It was so much fun working with a group of fantastic and creative vendors during this styled shoot. We went for a modern and vintage mixed look, with shades of blue and neutral tones. It had a very wet and almost melancholy look to it.”

Beginning with this beautiful invitation set by Esther Clark featuring delicate custom calligraphy and a stunning custom ring box from The Family Joolz.

We don’t think there’s a way we can love this cake any more than we already do. Cakes by Miha truly captured the essence of the shoot in this cake. And we can’t get enough of those fruit accents.

Gift Giving at Weddings | Do’s & Don’ts

JW-BlakeNicole-GiftTable

Attending a wedding soon and not sure what is appropriate or expected when it comes to a wedding gift? Not sure whether to give cash or stick the registry? What if you’re not attending the wedding? How much do you need to spend? Don’t stress, we’ve got you covered!  Here’s a list of our top do’s and don’ts when it comes to wedding gift etiquette.

Don’t: Be Afraid to Give Cash
When it comes to giving cash as a wedding gift some people feel it’s a bit too impersonal, but that is absolutely not true. In fact, a lot of couples prefer cash as it let’s them spend it on something they need that they may not be able to register for or something fun and unexpected, like a cooking class on their honeymoon!

Do: Ship the Gift
So you’ve bought your gift, now what? You could bring it to the wedding (and many do!), but consider shipping the gift directly to the couple instead. Not only is it simpler for you, but it’s less stress for the couple on their big day. Now they won’t have to worry about transporting it or have the risk of losing it during the shuffle. We’ve done our fair share of carting wedding gifts to and from venues and take it from us, it’s easier to ship direct!

Do: Stick to the Registry
If you decide to go with a physical gift, stick to the registry! While the couple may end up loving your rogue gift, it’s a risky move and unless you know the couple very well or are in the wedding party, keep it simple and stick to the registry. **If you just got engaged and are looking to start your registry soon, skip to the bottom for our quick tips and recommendations!

Don’t: Overspend
The average wedding gift these days is around $150, but before you pull the trigger take into consideration other factors. How well do you know the couple, what is your budget, are you traveling to the wedding? All of these answers will help determine what the appropriate amount to spend will be.

Don’t: Wait!
Always try to your best to send your gift before the wedding day, especially if you aren’t attending the actual celebration. The old belief is that you have up to a year after the wedding day to deliver you gift, but times have changed! A year is a long time and while ‘better late than never’ is definitely true in this case, try not to wait longer than 3 months after the wedding.

Building your Registry
Are you currently engaged and trying to create your wedding registry? There’s so much to consider when starting your registry and it can be really overwhelming. The most important things to remember are to build it together with your partner, take your time, and have a large variety of items. If you’re not sure where to start, try to find an all-in-one registry that has a wide variety of items. Zola is one of our faves and we’d highly recommend it! They have pre-built Gift Collections that are a great starting point to get an idea of what you’d to register for. And if you want to register for cash, there’s an option for guests to pay for your airfare or renovations or whatever you like, so tasteful!

David + Kristin | All-White Modern Chicago Reception

DavidKristin-JayneWeddings-JeremyLarson-022David and Kristin asked Team Jayne to help with the design and coordination of their wedding reception as they had already been married at their ceremony in California on April 3rd at a beautiful vineyard. Between their Ceremony and Reception, David & Kristen traveled to Japan for their honeymoon. Everything new we learned about this couple just emphasized how amazing and totally cool they were. Kristin really loves art, they love to travel the world together, and (like us) they love finding the best spots for food.

When putting together the look and feel of the reception, David & Kristin loved the idea of non-traditional so they stuck to an industrial, modern space (Room 1520, thanks for the perfect backdrop!) and a mainly white palette with small pops of color, which gave the entire space a modern, art gallery vibe.

For a modern twist on the all white theme, we spray painted all of our fruit decor white and put them in still-life arrangements throughout the reception.

DavidKristin-JayneWeddings-JeremyLarson-049DavidKristin-JayneWeddings-JeremyLarson-050DavidKristin-JayneWeddings-JeremyLarson-091DavidKristin-JayneWeddings-JeremyLarson-038Instead of using all white linens, we custom dyed gray ombre’ linens for a subtle pop of color. We also called in Luft Balloons to help us attain our vision of a super cool balloon ceiling installation!

When it came time for music and dancing, the DJ kept it all very hip and modern. This reception was full of young people so everyone was on the dance floor, it felt a lot like a club!

One of our favorite parts of this wedding were these handmade custom menus we hung from the ceiling. We love every opportunity to create something unique that hasn’t been done before.

How to Use Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year: Greenery

This week we’re feeling inspired by Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2017, Greenery—a zesty, yellow-green shade that will liven up space or color palette it’s paired with. This color is dying to be used in all of the springtime palettes but we love the unexpected, so we’ve put together a collection of inspiring ideas that will show that you can use this year’s color of the year in a variety of seasons and occasions!

pantone-color-of-the-yeat-2017-designboom-1800

Pantone discusses their choice: “the more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. this shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. a constant on the periphery, greenery is now being pulled to the forefront – it is an omnipresent hue around the world.” 

pantone + deep turquoise interior design
Pair ‘Greenery’ with deep turquoise walls, patterned pillows, and black & white accents for a moody, modern interior with style. Trendland

 

 

 

This year was probably the best year for ‘Greenery’ to be chosen as color of the year as the raw, refreshing garden look was truly unleashed during this wedding season. It reminded us a lot of Kristine & Eric’s greenery-filled day. Overflowing ferns and overgrown greenery are a beautiful and natural way to utilize this year’s color in your wedding decor.

pantone in makeup
If you aren’t looking to redecorate and don’t have any big events you can introduce ‘Greenery’ into, show it off using your makeup! Think fresh green or olive-toned nails and eyes—so fresh! Your Beauty Pantry

living-room-green-accents-pantone-greenery

Liven up your neutral interior my injecting some green into your accessories and plants. Compliment the green with white and just a small amount of gray or black for a fresh and lively vibe. Concepts & Colorways
