Local Flowers For the Win

Here in Aspen, we feel so lucky to have the opportunity to work with some of the most amazing florists! Flowers are easily one of the most impactful details in a wedding and we are always bursting with anticipation to see what our florists will create. At Cody and Jennifer’s wedding this past June, we had the beautiful opportunity to work with flower extraordinaire Carolyn Riley of Carolyn’s Flowers. The team at Carolyn’s Flowers put together the most gorgeous arrangements, keeping it simple, yet elegant, with fuchsia and white peonies, green sprigs in bud vases, and large green leaves to add subtle drama to the bridesmaid’s bouquets.

Carolyn’s Flowers put so much thought into each piece and where it would live for the evening; contrasting the bright pinks against the dark brown of the groom’s cake, placing fluffy, vibrant white peonies on their structured, simple cream wedding cake, and keeping the dining tables decorative, yet simple for conversation with small whimsical arrangements.  The bride and groom had a neutral color palette demonstrated in the stunning beige bridesmaids dresses, brown paper gift bags, and clean white tablecloths, making it the perfect canvas.

As we come to the end of another Aspen Wedding Season we have collected what we think are some helpful Wedding Guest Style Tips we have noticed throughout the summer, and others to wear to winter wedding destinations! With the help of The Black Tux suit and tux rentals, our grooms and groomsmen have been looking quite dapper. There are plenty of different styles and combinations to choose from at The Black Tux which brings the convenience of tuxedo rental right to your door with new styles being released regularly! Please take a look at the Wedding Guest Style Guide for some Tips! Mantage Laguna Beach Wedding First and foremost it is important to understand the Style of Wedding- this is our favorite part as we love designing events and putting together an event that truly reflects the couple! laguna-beach-style-of-wedding black-tie-wedding-style Scott Clark Photography     Please take note of the Dress Code! The invite says: “White Tie” “Black Tie” “Formal” “Beach Formal” (or in our case “Mountain Formal”) or “Black Tie Optional." We see a lot of "Mountain Chic" “Semiformal” or “black tie optional” in Aspen. With this style guide you can be ready for any dress code.
