Inspiration 178: Romantic Champagne & Gold

Another requested board!  I absolutely love the beautiful photo in the top left corner of this board, that outdoor chandelier is so romantic.  The bride who requested this board wants to have a champagne, gold, ivory and soft pink color palette.  This board has such a lovely, romantic feel to it and the combination of champagne, gold and pale pink is timeless and elegant.

Monday Funday 13: Vintage Spanish Style

The bride who requested this board said she was torn between two styles, vintage and Spanish.  Don't worry though, there is no reason to be torn... you can combine both styles!  I think a vintage Spanish theme would be great for a wedding.  The color palette for this board is fun and bright fuchsia, yellow and blue.

Inspiration 177: Darling Dahlias

Dahlias are absolutely my favorite flowers.  I love how big and bountiful they are, and the different layers of petals.  So today I have a monochromatic pink dahlia board for you!

Inspiration 176- Clouds and Sunshine

When I came across this pale, pale blue and bright yellow and peach wedding I knew it would make a great board.  The pale cloud blue really makes the yellow pop!  This color palette would be excellent for an spring wedding.

Real Wedding: Juliana and Kevin's Colorful Button & Bicycle Wedding

Oh do I love this wedding!  First, the color palette is beautiful!  The fun and bright bouquet is really lovely and I love how they incorporated buttons and feathers.  I also love the bridesmaids looks, and pretty much every detail of this wedding!  To see the rest of this wedding check it out on Love and Lavender.

Inspiration 175: Unique Red, Yellow and Purple Wedding

I really like the fun addition of purple to a red and yellow color scheme.  I decided to keep this board unique by adding in a patterned yellow bridesmaids look.

Theme Thursday 29: Shabby Chic Garden Tea!

I never get sick of tea party weddings!  They just seem like so much fun.  I just saw a cute idea where you could give away the vintage tea cups you collect to use as a favor!  Then every time your guests use them they will think of you and your wedding, which is super sweet.

Alternative Wednesdays #14- Chunky Statement Necklaces

I am a jewelery whore, and I love big, chunky necklaces!  I especially love the way they look on brides.  It's a fun way to incorporate your color palette into your outfit and show a bit more personality.

Inspiration 174- Country City Fusion

Oh, this color combo is just lovely!  The bride who requested this board wanted to work with a sophisticated white and black color palette with the flowers adding a pop of color.  She wanted to incorporate coral peonies, blue hydrangeas and pink ranunculus.  I focused this board more on the bright, pretty flowers but I really think this color combo will compliment a black and white wedding well!

Inspiration 173: Bright Vintage Wedding

Usually people who go with a vintage theme for their weddings seem to go for a soft color palette.  The bride who requested this board wanted to mix things up a little and incorporate some vintage elements in with a fuchsia and apple green color combo.  I love this 1930s style wedding gown (by Lulu B.) and invitations.   And I think the bright color palette goes really well with a vintage wedding!

Inspiration 172: Yellow Rose of Texas

I haven't done a country-ish board in a while so I was itching to make one.  I went with a yellow and black color scheme for this one!  I love the bridesmaids in the all different cowboy boots and all the fun patterns on this board.

Monday Funday 12: Purple Peacock

Ahhh, this board is so bright and fun!  I love the use of peacock feathers in different elements of a wedding and I think purple is a great complimentary color for them.  I love the mismatched shades of the bridesmaids dresses in this board, they work with all the colors you see in a peacock feather.  The chair decorations are really great too!

Inspiration 171: Pink and Blue, Is It For You?

Baby pink and blue are usually reserved for just that, babies!  Lately I have been seeing a bunch of baby pink and blue weddings so I thought I'd make a board inspired by them and I actually think this color palette is really pretty.  And that pink convertible picture is really making my swoon, and want a pink car!

Bouquet Love #5 (and a Lovely Color Combo!)

I love the brightness of this color combo, and the fun addition of blue to the popular pink and orange palette!  Check out the rest of the colorful wedding at Southern Wedding Magazine.

Inspiration 170: Slightly Vintage Teal and Mustard

Today I have for you a fun teal, mustard and chocolate brown color palette.  I love the simple painted cake in this board, and the fun paper pinwheel decorations!  This color combo would work well for summer, fall or winter.

Inspiration 169: Bohemian Peach and Yellow

I absolutely love the way this board turned out.  And the lovely peach and yellow color palette is simply beautiful.  I went a little bohemian with this board to do something a little different!

Theme Thursday 28: Glitzy Vintage Wedding

Oh, I love vintage weddings and I guess 1930s style is popular this year!  The bride who requested this board wants to work with a black and white color palette with red accents.  She also wants to incorporate lots of glitzy rhinestones, pearls and candles.  I hope this board helps her plan her 1930's style wedding!

Inspiration 168: Pink Tulips and Sunshine

This warm weather has me craving spring!  Tulips are one of the first flowers to pop up in the spring so I thought I'd go with a board based on pretty pink tulips and sunshine yellow.

Monday Funday #11: Happy Hearts

As corny as it is, I love Valentine's Day.  This is the first time in a few years that I am getting to celebrate it with someone I'm totally into so I'm especially excited!  Hope you all have an amazing Valentine's Day with your sweetie!!

Inspiration #167: Aquamarine and Peridot

This board is yet another suggested color palette from the contest.  Someone wanted to see a light blue (but not aqua) and spring green board, so that's exactly what I made.   I really like the pale sky blue and spring green mixture and it's definitely great for spring!

My New Dream Wedding Gown! (and 2 more I'm lusting over)

This weekend I made an unexpected stop at Kleinfeld's with my mom while we were in NYC for the day.  If you are a fan of Say Yes to The Dress on TLC, you will know this is a high end (and SUPER expensive wedding dress store where the show is filmed).  We purely went in to look around and see if we spotted any of the cast members and immediately saw Randy walking around, and he even said hi to us!  Everyone there was super sweet and all of the dresses were very beautiful.  I absolutely fell in love with this first dress (although I have to say the picture doesn't do it a lick of justice, so much more beautiful in person).  I love the open/big flower lace look.  I really like the other two pictured as well.  All three are Pnina Tornai exclusives for Kleinfelds.

Inspiration #164: Fun Purple, Mustard and Slate

Loving this fun color palette, I think it could work well for any season!  Plus, I'm slightly obsessed with anything that incorporates Billy Balls, they are so fun.

Theme Thursday #27: Tuscany, Revisited

I have made a few Tuscan inspired boards before but this is one of my favorites.  I love the combination of eggplant and sunflowers!  The bride who requested this board wants to have a vintage feel to her wedding and incorporate lots of sunflowers, grapes and wine.  I really like the idea of using grapes in the centerpiece, it really ties in the eggplant color the bridesmaids will be wearing.

Inspiration #163- Bold Red and Gold

Red and gold are definitely a beautifully bold color palette to work with.  The bride who requested this board also wanted to incorporate some blue, to help her color palette work with her venue which has a lot of blue.  I incorporated small amounts of blue into the flowers and also think giving the men red and blue striped ties would help incorporate it in a subtle way.  She also wanted to elegantly incorporate a "message in a bottle" theme being that is how her fiance proposed!  I used "message in a bottle" escort bottles, bottle candlestick holders and a message in a bottle guest book in this board for a few ideas.

Inspiration #162- Spring for Coral

I have another suggested color palette for you today, coral, spring green and gray.  I went with a soft grey to keep this color palette more romantic, but any shade of gray would work.  I think this is a beautiful alternative to a brighter orange and green color combo.

Monday Funday #10- Mint Chocolate Chip

This board was inspired by a shoot I spotted on Style Me Pretty that incorporated mint green with black and white stripes.  I thought it was really pretty so I decided to create a board out of it!

Bouquet Love #4!

I love the color palette of this bouquet, SO PRETTY!  Expect to see a board inspired by it's loveliness soon!
