{Derby Days}: Shades of Brown, Ivory + White

{Shades of Brown, Ivory + White}

When it comes to wedding themes, I'm not sure about you but I'm actually not really a fan. However, what I do really enjoy seeing is when a bride is able to draw a touch inspiration from the unlikeliest of sources. Take the derby for instance. There's nothing more fun than Derby attire! Have some extra time with your photographer? Why not plan to take a few fun photos? What about dressing up your wedding gown by playing around with some derby inspired accessories? That jacket, those pearls, lace gloves? Oh, and what's not to love about that hat! {continued...}

Details We Love
Invitation Suite + Derby Attire

Besides beautiful displays of love and affection, this is just the sort of thing I love to see at weddings. Subtle nods to a theme, vintage details and beautiful styling. I love seeing rustic details paired with romantic ones. For instance, take a look at this invitation suite by Papel Press! It's the perfect blend of sophistication and elegance. So what do you think about these colors? Are you liking monochromatic palettes here lately?

I read somewhere a Bride describing her theme as "my love & I are getting married!" That's the greatest theme!!!

I have always been crazy about monochromatic schemes - always feels luxurious and put-together. Adore the pinkish brown you have in this combination. Lovely, just lovely.

I'm really finding the first set very inspirational for me. The whole antique lace look incorporated into an ensemble is what true vintage is all about . . .

Pretty impressive and useful information! Last month attended one of my best friend’s wedding which was arranged at one of beautiful New York wedding venues. It was a themed wedding and we all had followed that particular theme. Had fun time there.
