Inspiration Board # 29: Chocolate Brown, Blue & Light Blue

February 16, 2009

{Chocolate Brown, Blue & Light Blue}

When Stephanie wrote to me...she told me that the colors that they were planning to use for their wedding were ivory, brown, baby blue. Since the wedding was on a beach they wanted it to feel very natural and calm. She also mentioned that the starfish was a symbol they planned to use throughout the wedding. In my design, I gave her bridesmaids blue floor length dresses, and accessories in chocolate brown. Starfish placecards added some beachy elegance, and centerpieces were designed by floating candles and flowers in glass vases. Beautiful patterned linens dressed tables and gave them some well deserved attention and the newlyweds monogram gave the reception a touch of personality that guests could appreciate. Guests each went home with homemade candles that were presented in starfish containers.

Favorite Details: Monogram on cake, Starfish placecards, Beachy motif on thank you notes.

Here is a 2nd edition of this board in which I included a short sundress instead of the long gown, a casual look for the groomsmen, and some white florals. This one just has more of a casual feel.
