Imagine a grand entrance into the room with all eyes on you and your groom. The doors open, sending the entire ambiance into an excited whirlwind, highlighted by a flutter of colorful ribbon bound along the rows of chairs seated with applauding guests. It’s as if you’ve walked into your very own dream, isn’t it? Such is the spell that DIY ribbon chairs have cast on us here at MIDORI. (Insider tip: try MIDORI’s Double Faced Satin or Dupioni Silk for your own elegant inspiration!)
For those of us who love a little off-the-shoulder action, bridal collars are the best thing popping in accessories for your walk down the aisle. Once very popular in the Victorian era, stylish brides all over the globe have revitalized this antique trend. Whether breaking the bank with Louis Vuitton’s sparkling pieces or hitting up the best in DIY’s to customize your own, such an accent will definitely be turning heads.
This month on MIDORI’s wedding playlist, we’re bringing you something just a tad bit different and a little out of this world (but not too far!). Most definitely inspired by one of the most exquisite wedding ceremonies we ever did see in Otis & Nitasha’s sensational, tear jerking celebration, we had a taste for spreading the Bollywood love bug.
As you watch and listen, we hope that you enjoy this special mix as much as we did.

Welcome to the land of crispy crusts and gooey interiors that are making leaps and bounds on our watering taste buds. Macaroons are definitely our guilty pleasures of the century, drawing us to local shoppes to get our hands on a box of these evolutionary goodies. Infused with a light taste and glorious flavors that blush in Earl Grey, Blueberry, Pistachio and Triple Vanilla (just to name a few!), these mini cakes are heaven in our mouths and worthy additions to a marvelous wedding buffet. Guests are sure to enjoy being spoiled by so much sugariness you might have to hire backup before the last cookie crumbles.
Oh Em Gee! Have you seen what’s been surfacing lately in the frozen department? Floral ice cubes are all the rage. This trend is becoming widely popular among brides and crafty ladies alike, transforming our chilled little helpers to the next level in ice cold beverage-ing. All at once, we get to enjoy a chance to relish in nature’s precious buds while satiating our lust for thirst. Although we may be living in LA, there is something about this DIY trick that makes us feel like we’re somewhere on a secluded island with nothing but our love and a captivating scenery to match…a girl can dream, can’t she? Keep your choice of beverage just as light by adding floral cubes to lemonade, water or iced tea. All you need is edible flowers and/or herbs, an ice tray, and a freezer, and you’re all set!
We recently enjoyed the wonderful opportunity to showcase MIDORI’s contagious charm behind the incredible lens of Katelyn James and direction of our fabulous friend, Janie Medley of JM Flora and The Bride’s Cafe. Peach, teal and red all united with MIDORI Ribbon to create a tropical rapture of elegant refreshments that literally lit up the entire room followed by a click and a flash. Thanks all of the talented vendors for letting us be a part of such a decadent display of paradise! Follow the link for more gorgeous inspiration…

Spring has sprung and we hope you’re feeling lucky in love, because we have some some very new collections in Bridal this week!
We are totally obsessed with these crazy beautiful wedding piñatas! How fantastic would it be to turn this childhood birthday party idea into a classy wedding theme? (Tons of fantastic, for sure.) First of all, the varying shapes and sizes are simply stunning, and can be custom-made for just the look you wish to convey, even if that means hanging them from the ceilings as the merry amusements they are for a candy chandelier-ed Willy Wonka effect. If The Little Mermaid or a giant basketball aren’t your thing, the avant-garde creations of Confetti System may be just what you need.
We’d love to see a colorful MIDORI ribbon piñata and witness it’s beautiful, whimsical destruction in front of hundreds of sweet-toothed attendees…if any of you brides-to-be out there are interested in such a challenge, we recommend Rayon Trimming or Double Faced Satin for their fabulous, vibrant color palette. Felicidades!
