A Bright + Fun San Francisco City Hall Wedding

What a better way to start the beginning of a long weekend with the summer issue of Martha Stewart Weddings hitting newstands today! I love seeing all their creative ideas and the real weddings they feature are with some of the most creative couples. And guess what – Shira Shivada, the real weddings editor, is letting me share some photos from one of their real weddings! Thanks Shira!! I LOVE how fun + stylish this San Francisco CIty Hall wedding is. The couple were married at City Hall, then had a parade (with that cute banner below designed by San Francisco artist Jeff Canham) to the restaurant where the reception was held. Such a beautiful day :)

Wedding Inspiration from the Movies: Sex and the City 2

Is anyone else excited for the latest Sex and the City movie? I love that most of the movie is supposed to take place in Abu Dhabi (although filmed in Morocco) and think that could provide some great inspiration for a fun Bridal Shower or Bachelorette Party. A fun afternoon with your favorite gals sitting on pillows outside under a tent and drinking yummy drinks – sounds like a perfect time to me! Here are some ideas to help throw a fun party…

Yummy light and refreshing cocktails are a must! Drinks with fresh fruit such as watermelon and cantaloupe would be great or maybe even a Prosecco Bar with juices your girls could pick from such as pomegranate, pear, peach, and tangerine juice. Photos above from Martha Stewart. Lots of lanterns hanging or placed around will create the perfect environment. Lanterns below from Z Gallerie (left) and Cost Plus (right).

Raj Tents has lots of great tents + furniture you can rent to create the perfect environment. So many fun options! If that’s not in your budget, no worries! Collect lots of pillows and rugs for the ground and drap fabric around to create the same sense of style. Low dining table trays are the perfect height for all the snacks – you can easily create these by using plastic crates and covering them in fabric or scarves.

Fun, bright colored dresses are a must! Lots of cute options out there to keep in the spirit – plus they would be perfect to wear all summer :) Top two dresses from Anthropologie, bottom dresses from Urban Outfitters.

It looks like the ladies are snacking on macaroons in this movie and I love that idea of course! Or better yet, how about a cupcake (the perfect Sex and the City sweet) with a macaroon on top?! There is a bakery here in Manhattan Beach, CA – Cupcakes Couture – that makes them and they are just as delicious as they sound!

Renting a Bella Umbrella would be fun for some great photos of you and your friends. And this is the exact umbrella seen with Sarah Jessica Parker from the movie!

The most important part is having a great time with your favorite gals! What do you think? Anyone planning on using any of these ideas for a Bridal Shower they are planning?
