{Sunshine Day}: A Palette of Dusty Aqua, Yellow, Light Yellow + White

August 10, 2011

{Dusty Aqua, Yellow, Light Yellow + White}

Today I have a dose of bright + cheery inspiration for you. And if you know anything about me, you know I'm a huge fan of the color yellow. Because what's not to love about yellow? Not only is it a color that's bursting at the seams with what I like to call the 'fun factor', but it's also just plain eye catching. Personally, I love to pair bright, vibrant colors with softer more subdued shades. Anyone else feeling like aqua and shades of yellow were meant to go hand in hand? I definitely am feeling that way! And that's why when bride-to-be, Michelle wrote to me with this lovely color palette in mind, I was completely excited to put together a little inspiration for her! {continued...}

Details We Love
Lovely Heels + Fun Wedding Cake

I've always been a fan of these lovely heels by Hey Lady and seriously, how fun is this yellow halter dress? Remember that when it comes to styling your wedding, it's really the simple things that truly will stand out as unique. I'm loving the colored tiers that this wedding cake has. I can't say I've seen that before at a wedding! Oh, and why not place a lemon on each place setting to act as a place card? Simple, sweet and full of sunshine goodness. That's what this palette is all about. So tell me, what do you all have planned for the rest of your Summer?
