I’m still in wedding decor mode from the amazing wedding I helped with this past weekend, so it seemed fitting to share one of the trends in wedding decor I’ve been seeing!

You may have recently seen a lot more tissue paper pom-poms being used as decor at weddings. These fun and whimsical decorations are also perfect for a bridal shower or baby shower! Thanks to Martha Stewart and her tutorial on how to make them, tissue paper pom-poms are becoming a common decor item! It’s a wonderful DIY piece of decor to add a pop of color to an event and it’s also such a fun element!

You can also get a pom-pom DIY kit from the Prost to the Host Etsy Shop! You can save yourself the time of cutting and measuring, but still put the poms together!

Are any of you planning on using tissue paper pom-poms for an upcoming event, or have you? I can’t wait to have an excuse to make them!

So it’s now October, and in the wedding industry, it’s the start of the Fall wedding season! My first official wedding with the company I’m apprenticing with, MMD Events, is tomorrow and I’m so excited!

Here are some of the photos from a recent photo shoot that MMD did the decor, design and floral work for! Design and decor of weddings is something that I adore, so when I saw the photos that Limelight Photography did of MMD’s work, I had to spread the beauty!

Look at how much draping and uplighting can do for the design and decor of an event! Wonderful work MMD and Limelight Photography! [Go to Limelight’s blog for extended vendor information.]

I’ll be doing another post in the next few weeks all about decor and design for events. In the meantime, I’m sure I’ll be posting some TwitPics of upcoming weddings, so follow me on Twitter to keep a look out for them!

Have a wonderful weekend!
