{guest post} - coral cafe.

Hi it's Drew from Coral Cafe! When asked to guest post for the lovely and talented Jillian (while she's off enjoying the sights, beauty and relaxation of the breathtaking Barcelona and Madrid), I decided I would dedicate this post to Jillian's wedding taking place next July. Thankfully, I've gotten hints here and there from her blog of what she wants to be incorporated on her special day to the love of her life. So, I'm hoping this lends to more inspiration and excitement for the continued planning process, Jill ;)


I was ecstatic to find rose gold earrings, a sparkly clutch and heels to match Jillian's breathtaking rose gold engagement ring. I knew right from the moment she was as infatuated with rose gold as I was, I wanted to contribute in the search of finding key accessories and decor that would express this magnificent shade and metal to its absolute best! 


I know Jillian is looking to make pinks and blushes her signature color for her big day, which radiates  glamour, classiness and stunning qualities. I also know Jillian wants to incorporate succulents into her wedding, whether it be through a bouquet, centerpieces or party favors. I think this is a fabulous idea that I might have to steal for my own wedding one day ;)


Lighting is very important in the scheme of reception details. The more low lighted, the more romantic. String lights, chandeliers and lanterns can all add to that certain fairytale ambiance. 
As far as invitations and place settings go, they can include elements I have mentioned to bring the whole look together to feel complete and uniform. Pinks, rose gold, succulents, dim lighting and a romantic setting is surely in order for the wedding of the lovely and soon-to-be MRS. Jillian!
