You kids have been on heavy rotation awhile now and still manage to sing to the same tune. As the countdown to your nuptials begins, here are some ditties to help dial in your big day.
If the writing’s on the wall, choose poster invitations from Poster Bride. Owner Matt Terich has lent his talents to Les Savy Fav, Sufjan Stevens, and The Decemberists. Tie ribbons customized with your favorite romantic quote or lyric from Midori (Moxie Papergoods & Gifts, 3916 California Avenue Southwest; 206-932-2800) around your poster tubes.
Pretty in Pink
Become a blushing bride at Jill Bucy Skincare (600 Queen Anne Avenue North; 206-283-9295). Treat attendants to a party or pamper yourself with specialized skin treatments (DailyCandy readers receive 20 percent off all services through December 31). The Larrabee Center (600 Broadway, suite 280; 206-386-3550) can address any last-minute flare-ups before makeup artist Heidi Nymark of Celestine Agency (206-903-6661) creates the final flawless look.
Dress You Up
Accessorize with worldly heirloom jewelry from Soulful Adornment Gallery. To bridge the gap between classic and indie, slip into a handmade garter of antique lace from Bleu Garters (firstname.lastname@example.org or Pulp Lab, 1912 Northwest Dock Place; 206-706-7857) and top yourself off with one of Millinery by Miriam’s sassy headpieces (206-696-4384 or Cicada Bridal, 1121 First Avenue; 206-652-2434).
Bed of Roses
Willow & Bloom (3415a Fremont Avenue North; 206-913-8779) sources many organic flowers locally and goes out of the way to ensure you get the look you want without sacrificing your ecoconscience. The designers even create centerpieces from succulents that guests can take home.
Eat the Rich
Lucinda’s Cakewalk (206-417-3514) is the ultimate resource for couples wanting a scrumptious homemade cake that’s still sophisticated. Those with a rock star proclivity for drink might choose to register for wine at Pike & Western (1934 Pike Place; 206-441-1307) and age well together with their gift.
Pictures of You
Photog Jenny Jiménez gained her training at rock shows but now captures candid and lively shots of your wedding party. Should you crave even more of the camera, husband and wife team Martha and Aaron Shamp of Sound Playback Productions shoot each wedding in both brilliant high-definition video and Super 8 film.
Remember to relax, have a good time, and down a drink or two.
It’s obvious you’re destined to go platinum together.
