{summer lovin'}: a palette of shades of yellow, gray + white

{Shades of Yellow, Gray + White}

The unofficial start of Summer has arrived. And although Summer doesn't really start until June 21st, I'm definitely in a Summer state of mind. My Summer memories are definitely some of my favorites. Because what's not to love about Summer? Summer for me is all about sunshine, carefree fun and laying by the pool. Summer also has a way of reminding me of my childhood. I have such vivid memories. I remember riding bikes with my friends all day long - only stopping for the occasional snack. Popisicles were definitely my snack of choice. Remember when your only care in the world was trying to avoid losing half of your popsicle? Man, those suckers melted quickly! Am I right, or am I right? Oh, and who could forget the sounds of music streaming throughout the neighborhood? The sound of none other than the ice cream truck. Aw, those were the days! {continued...}

Why not include some of your own childhood summer memories into your wedding day? Gray and yellow are the perfect colors to capture this carefree, fun-loving vibe. To convey some Summer fun, I decided to include the ideas of popsicles and bicycles into the wedding styling. I absolutely love the popsicle display featured here. Such a fun idea! What you should take away from this is that incorporating things that are meaningful to you and your fiance will make your wedding all the more special. So what do you think about this palette of yellow + gray? Anyone considering using it at your upcoming wedding?
