Color Story: Rustic + Romantic

So remember last week when I shared that brown inspiration board? Well, as much as I loved that look, I decided to put together another one. But this time? I went for a little bit of a softer and more subdued vibe. It's a rustic look, but it also has a touch of romance with the addition of this soft pink shade.

Full of texture and sweetness, I can totally imagine being a guest at this wedding. I'm picturing a sweet chapel wedding with a charming reception to follow. Hot cider and cookies would be lovely. And for centerpieces? Why not incorporate some bird nests?

I really like the idea of creating escort cards on leaves. And bridesmaids in boots? Well, I'm pretty sure I've made my love for this look pretty obvious! Oh, and I can't go without mentioning my love for groomsmen in suspenders. Ahhh.  I'm totally of a sucker for this look. So much so that you better believe that my groom wore suspenders at our wedding. Such a sweet look, if you ask me.

So over to you. What about this look are you liking? And what do you think about mixing romantic and rustic details? Can you imagine being a guest at this wedding?

This is so pretty with the soft, muted colors. I would love a fall or winter wedding that looked like this.

This is a fantastic fall palette, I love the rust color (especially added into the bouquet). It is rustic, a little dramatic, and beautiful!
