The Desert Nuptials stationery was a creation of novelty. The look for the shoot was a “copper, black and masculine with a specific detail of a guinea feather”.  The inspiration got started with a piece of copper piping and a guinea feather!  Then Dulce Muse Designs took the copper pipe to a specialty paper store and picked out a deep black envelope with sleek lines, an envelope liner made of copper painted linen paper and a suede black string to tie it all together.  Their process is details first, as it’s where they get their inspo. Lastly, they matched the masculine sleek and “Palm Springs” type font to the copper color. They didn’t want this invitation suite to be an envelope filled with lots of feathers, but to be subtle.  Their in-house graphic designer added a guinea feather graphic detail to the invite and carried the theme throughout on a high quality white paper thicker than most suites. They hand mix their ink so that their calligraphy stands out.  We just love with the copper on black look!

wedding invitationFor the menu, a long horizontal menu vs the more traditional vertical menu was featured. Dulce Muse Designs try to make each creation stand out on its own so that their clients always have a one of kind art piece as a part of their special day. The menu laid beautifully across the masculine sleek plates. Each place setting was complete with an escort card which had a hand glued small feather on to tie in the “lets flock together forever” theme.place setting, menu card,

Flower Walls and Flower Curtains
We cannot get enough of this trend! Feminine floral curtains are taking the place of plain old, fabric draping for ceremony arbors and backdrops. Combine the two, and you get an ultra posh option for framing your ceremony arbor. This trend also allows you to bring the outdoors inside for your indoor reception. These dramatic and fresh floral walls behind your head table create a unique statement piece.
Wine Country Twist: Impress your guests with a view of the vineyards behind you and your fiancé through a romantic flower curtain during your ceremony. Do not forget to incorporate real grapevines in your floral wall which brings the vineyard indoors for your reception.

Lounges and Late Night Snacks
After dinner and all of your formalities, it’s time to party! Nothing screams celebration more than the current craze of the after party lounge. Swanky lounge furniture, electrifying lighting, and playful snack options such as mini gourmet sliders, mini tacos, and mini portions of truffle macaroni and cheese will keep your guests energized to dance the night away.
Wine Country Twist: After dinner, have your DJ encourage your guests to migrate over to the cellar room as it is set up as a chic lounge. Their jaws will literally drop to the floor when they see the barrel lined walls and steel tanks that surround the lounge space. Offer wine country themed snack options such as bite size Brie Wedges covered in Port Soaked Grapes, Grilled Oyster Shooters with Champagne Crème and Crostini with Whipped Cabernet Chevre for a late night snack.

Hand-Calligraphy Signage and Paper Details
Michelle Garibay from Michelle Garibay Events, a highly respected wine country wedding planner, says “Hand-written signs on various media are such a hit right now. And while standard chalkboards are still pretty much everywhere, the concept is now expanding to tables and walls, wherever chalk paint can be applied. Custom photo booth backdrops, menus at food stations, all written right on the table, are trending immensely. These details provide fun and easy ways to read information to keep the guests informed and the décor fresh.”
Wine Country Twist: Keep it classy by incorporating hand written menus that describe the beautiful wine country cuisine served to your guests. Give wine bottle toppers as favors and handwrite “Thank You” on each favor’s tag. Not only will it look amazing, your guests will appreciate the personal touch.
