{Strawberries & Cream}: A Palette of Red & Ivory

{Strawberries & Cream}

Nothing says Summer like strawberry shortcake or any fruit for that matter! I don't know about you, but I've long been a fan of incorporating fresh fruit into the overall concept of a wedding. There is just something so simple and so sweet about the idea! Red is definitely a color that has been done over and over again in the world weddings~ but that's not to say you can't use red if it's your favorite color! Actually, I insist that you do! As you can see here, pairing red with a creamy ivory, and a fun theme like strawberries really does transform the color! Some of the ideas I'm loving in this board include those gorgeous satin sashes on the backs of those bridesmaids dresses! Talk about eye-catching. Oh, and check out those adorable baskets filled with strawberries and muffins! Those would make such memorable favors or even out-of-town baskets! Another idea I'm just loving is the strawberry cheesecake! Looks like a delicious way to say I do to me!

So how are you feeling about Red? If you know me, then you know I L-O-V-E red. But that's not to say that it's for everyone! Some people are just not red fans! But for those of you who assured you're not alone! There is something so fun about this palette. Any brides-to-be out there who are considering red?
