Inspiration Board # 194: Destination Bliss

April 5, 2009

{Hot Pink & Black}

Looking to create a look for your upcoming beach wedding that is sophisticated and fun? Well so was bride-to-be, Amelia and her fiance Jason. In her email to me, Amelia wrote about the destination wedding she was planning in May. She told me all about the color palette she was considering but she said ''she just could not invision it coming together". Amelia, like a lot of my brides, was full of fun ideas but when it came to coordinating everything and pulling together the big picture, Amelia said she was at a loss. In my design, I opted to have her bridesmaids wear classic black sundresses.

Each girl held a bouquet of lovely hot pink blooms which popped in color against the black fabric of their gowns. Fun strappy sandalss were worn to add interest and guys were coordinated in classic black attire. Amelia was clear that she wanted her wedding to feel upscale and definitely not casual. Because of this, I opted to incorporate beautiful specialty invitations and lovely custom made dinner menus. To infuse some fun into their day, I chose a tasty signature cocktail and accented each drink with a pop of color by using little pink umbrellas. To coordinate, I decided to give each bridesmaid a pink parasol. This accessory added a lot of fun and personality into their day and made for excellent picture opportunities. Guests left with big smiles on their faces with memories that would last a lifetime.
