{By Request}: Spring is in the Air! Coral, Fuchsia, Pink, Taupe & Ivory

February 25, 2011 / 16 Comments

{Coral, Fuchsia, Pink, Taupe & Ivory}

Although Spring might not be officially here, it's definitely in the air! I don't know about you, but I'm feeling all energized and ready for the season! Today's request comes from Julia who wrote to me with this pretty little palette in mind for her upcoming Spring wedding. A mix of coral, fuchsia and taupe! For her wedding I imagined all kinds of pretty ideas! There is no doubt that I'm a huge pink lover, especially when done right. Pink's femininity pairs so effortlessly with this shade of taupe, wouldn't you agree? I love how they compliment one another. {continued...}

{top row}: groomsmen attire, bridal party attire, ring pillows, fun bridal hairband, {middle row}: fashion ring, blooms, pink bridesmaid clutch, earrings, dessert drink, {bottom row}: clutch by dessy, centerpiece & table decor, flower girl, lovely dresses.

Details We Love
Bridal Party Attire & Ring Pillows

Some of the ideas I had for this wedding was to have bridesmaids in differing shades of pink with different necklines. Oh, and why not let them wear their own shoes? Such a fun way to add personality to your wedding. With guys in taupe suits, this bridal party is sure to stand out in a good way! I'm also really loving the use of different fabric patterns as seen on those ring pillows! Adds a fun homespun element to it, don't you think?

A Dose of Spring Fever: Shades of Green & White

{Chartreuse, Light Green & White}

As the weather starts teasing us with warmer days & the sun starts to make a more regular appearance, I can't help but want it to be Spring already! I'll admit it, I definitely have a case of Spring fever! I've already even broken out my flips flops! And although the weather seems to flip flop {no pun intended} back to cooler temperatures at times, it doesn't bother me much because I know Spring is near! Spring brides have all sorts of fun palettes to play with! Light & pretty palettes like this one below catch my eye. {continued...}

Details We Love
Spring Cake Design & Newlyweds in Love!

I'm so in love with this wedding cake! With it's almost messy presentation, although it may feel like an unsafe choice, I really appreciate the loose design & playfulness. What goes good with a cake like this? Well, mason jars, of course...filled with wild flowers, nothing too pretentious. Check out those bridesmaid dresses! Those are surely dresses your friends will want to wear again. Oh, & want to add a touch of class & sophistication to this laid back look--I suggest hiring a calligrapher like Laura Hooper to address your wedding invitations! Fun, laid back and sophisticated all at the same time! Your guests will leave saying "well, wasn't that a charming wedding!"

{Palette Love}: Gray & Yellow.

February 20, 2011 / 8 Comments

Gray & Yellow is definitely a palette that we've long adored. There is just something that is so fun about this dazzling duo. Perhaps it's because yellow is considered by most to be one of the most happy colors on the color wheel and gray is typically associated with being one of the most gloomy colors. When they come together, yellow really has a way of canceling out any kind of gloomy feel, that's for sure.

1. Bridal Party Attire 2. Heels 3. Groomsmen Florals 4. Table Setting 5. Invites

Modern, fun & laid back, this palette really is something special! It's one of those palettes I can imagine being used in many settings! Thinking of having your wedding in a modern city loft space or maybe you're looking for a palette to use for your vineyard wedding?

Both spaces will compliment this versatile palette! So what do you think about this palette? Is it a pair that you considering for your wedding? We feel like it's a great palette for any season really! But we mostly love it for Spring!

Love yellow weddings? Consider these yellow palettes!

Or maybe you're more of a gray lover? Try these gray palettes on for size!
