Vendor Feature - Creative Custom Cardboxes

Something Spectacular (and Something Floral) has been in business since 2001. Over the years, we've had the pleasure of meeting and working with a wide variety of wedding and special event service providers. Recently, we became acquainted with Marni Gold of Creative Custom Cardboxes (http://www.creativecustomcardboxes.com/) in New Jersey.

Marni creates and ships beautiful wedding, shower, and special event card boxes that are customized to every client's preferences (size, shape, colors, design, theme, etc). Card boxes can be designed to replicate a wedding cake or match details on the bride's wedding dress, groom's tuxedo, bridesmaids' dresses, or to incorporate special touches that convey the wedding theme.

One of our favorite ideas is a card box that matches or coordinates details with the bride's bouquet and wedding floral decor. To demonstrate how well the two can compliment one another, pictured below are a few of Marni's beautiful card box creations paired with our recommendations for coordinating bridal bouquets.

The first card box is silver and is highlighted with purple satin ribbon. This coordinates nicely with the silver bridal bouquet holder and variety of purple, lavendar, and periwinkle blooms in the bouquet.

The second combination is perfect for an Autumn wedding. The card box is a deep, rich, chocolate brown accented with a ripe pumpkin orange ribbon.

The third card box is a pretty blush pink highlighted with creamy satin ribbon. This looks lovely coupled with a blush pink, cream, ivory, and white bridal bouquet of roses, peonies, tuberose, and stephanotis.

The lavendar color of this card box looks fantastic combined with a feminine and romantic lavendar rose and tulip bouquet.

A classic white and ivory bridal bouquet gets a modern twist with an updated silhouette and pearl detailing. Notice how the pearl details on the coordinating white and ivory card box reinforces the classic elegance of an all-white wedding.

Pink and brown has been an extremely popular color combination for weddings over the past 3 years. The pink and brown card box below not only coordinates well with a pink, latte, and brown bridal bouquet, but it also mirrors the wedding cake. This is an example of one of Marni's cake replica card boxes.
