Brittany and Bryan wanted to blend an elegant, formal reception with a relaxed beach ceremony. And what could be more fitting than Fort Lauderdale beach wedding? With a color palette comprised of black and a soft gold to create elegance at the reception (and ice luge to help break the ice!), the newlyweds celebrated their “I do’s” with their closest family and friends at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa.

We It! Girls can’t help but love to standout in the boldest colors (as if our personalities weren’t bold enough). One of our favorite look-at-me hues, honeysuckle, will make any gal (or gala) glow with confidence and vibrance. Whether used in a pattern, print or matched with a solid, this reddish pink is this year’s It! color. Even Pantone agrees! They named it their 2011 color of the year.

It’s no secret we love to party (and since you’re reading this, we think it’s safe to say you do too). From the swanky 7-course soiree to the romantic moonlit wine tasting, we love to attend and host them all. So as your host for this evening, we thought we’d let you in on one of our most prized secrets: How to set an informal/formal It! table.
Longing for an exotic destination wedding without having to travel half way around the globe? Be inspired by the glitz of Bollywood and celebrate the exuberant colors and rich traditions of the East. The vibrant palette and wild decorations will add just the right amount of spice to your celebration!

Can you believe this video was created by the bride and groom-to-be themselves? We almost think we love them more than they love each other!
As if sent on the wings of love, butterflies symbolize new beginnings and call to mind childhood fairytales. Kick off this boho chic theme with a post-ceremony butterfly release (don’t worry, no harm will come to the critters), then incorporate some of these fabulous details inspired by Mother Nature:
