The first time I happened across Jennie-Mae and Kristin's Etsy shop, Apropos Roasters, I was immediately stuck by the rustic charm and elegant simplicity of their hand tied wedding favors. I could nearly smell the rich coffee aromas and feel the comforting warmth of a cup in my hand - just from the photos alone. I knew I had to do a feature.

Bold is certainly beautiful, especially when combined in a way that reflects vintage style and bohemian charm. This inspiration board combines hues such as solar power yellow and sodalite blue from Pantone's spring fashion color report, with wedding classics like petal pink and red. The look is rich, layered, and textural while retaining soft elements and an elegant feel.

Lace as been a favorite fabric choice of brides for generations. Though other materials have been more en vogue in recent years, 2012 is seeing a return to this wedding gown classic.
Currently, lace sleeves are very popular among designers, a look made popular by the elegant wedding gown worn by Kate Middleton last spring at her wedding to Prince William.
Illusion necklines and overlays are another beautiful way to incorporate lace.
