{Cowboy Take Me Away}: Shades of Orange, Teal, and Latte

March 31, 2010

{Red-Orange, Teal, Burnt Orange, Orange & Latte}

Shades of orange, teal and latte come together to make this unexpected palette. Upon finding the photo of that gorgeous paisley tie, I just knew that I had to put together an entire wedding that coordinated. Isn't it funny how you can find one item that completely inspires you? For me, the color and pattern of that tie made me think of an old western. So off to the drawing board I went...and here it is. A western inspired wedding using bright bold color. {continued...}

Some of my favorite ideas in this board include the teal cocktail dress and of course the fun flirty hand bags to coordinate. I'm also absolutely loving that pair of bright orange heels and the font used on the invitation design. So tell me...Has there there been one item or one image that has ultimately inspired your wedding day look?

{Welcome Spring}: Orange, Latte, Pink, Peach, & Shades of Yellow

March 27, 2010

{Orange, Latte, Pink, Peach, & Shades of Yellow}

Nothing says Spring like this blend of citrusy color! Shades of pinks, oranges and yellows blend effortlessly to create this beautiful eye opening, attention grabbing palette! To me, this palette conveys a certain celebratory vibe, one that is definitely far from stuffy and one that truly carries the fun factor. It's colors like these that remind you of your favorite popsicle flavor, of days spent beneath the sun, and of a carefree time in your life. Some of my favorite ideas in this board include the fruity drink display, the beautiful and vibrant favor boxes and of course those floating candles that look like lemons and grapefruits! I hope you are enjoying your Spring as much as I am. If only every day could be Spring!

March 22, 2010

{Aqua, Chocolate Brown, Latte, and Ivory}

Sometimes I happen upon a color palette that just really makes me feel inspired! This palette of aqua, shades of brown and ivory is exactly one of those palettes. There is something very soft about how these colors come together. It's light & airy, the perfect mixture of feminine and masculine, and also incredibly romantic. I think this palette would look gorgeous for either a Summer or a Spring wedding. Some of my favorite ideas include the invitation which incorporates the couple's monogram and also those gorgeous flowy chiffon dresses! What a wonderful look for a bridal party! Also I love the idea of having donuts and coffee for a late night snack at your reception! What a fun idea!

{Pink, Fuchsia, Light Pink, Light Yellow, Antique Gold, Ivory}

Nothing makes my heart skip a beat more than when I stumble upon a color palette that is perfect for a particular season. In this case, Spring is upon us and I cannot be more thrilled to have warmer weather on the way! The birds are already starting to chirp, and the temperatures are starting to rise a bit. And well, I could not be more excited! A spring wedding is the perfect time to use the color pink! In this palette I paired shades of pink with soft hues such as ivory and creamy yellow. But I didn't stop there with this one. {continued...}

I decided to add a touch of elegance by adding a touch of antique gold. I absolutely love how the antique gold just makes this palette pop and adds sophistication and charm. Some of my favorite ideas in this board include the gorgeous place settings complete with dinner menu, beaded charger and a floral backdrop. This wedding is all about attention to detail! I, for one, would have never chosen pink for my wedding, but when I see a palette like this it completely changes my mind about using pink in a wedding. Makes me want to go back and do it all over again!

Looking for a sophisticated way to use the color yellow in your wedding? I'd suggest simply pairing it with accents of antique gold and ivory. I personally love how this palette is both fun yet elegant. The antique gold really gives this palette depth and richness. Some of my favorite touches include the creative table number display, the incorporation of the gold leaf beaded plate chargers and of course the added touch of the couple's monogram. This palette is really easy to coordinate and would definitely work well in Spring, Summer or even Fall weddings.
