If you’re going to get married in Vegas, you’ve got to have bold colors and a whole lot of sass. And what’s sassier than turquoise and red together – so unexpected and vivid enough to stand up to the glitz and lights of Sin City. Some silver elements would probably work well here too, to reflect the cake topper. Maybe this purse from J. Crew?
There are so many ways to do a beach wedding, but I was totally inspired by Kylie Lambert’s shipwreck photo. It adds a different element to the natural beauty of the beach and the ocean. So often it seems that beach weddings go the route of bright tropical colors, as a way of reflecting an exotic location. I decided to stick with an understated palette, to let the natural surroundings shine through.
Mood: breezy and barefoot
Palette: sand, shades of white, with touches of pastel
This board is especially for my dear friend Elizabeth! She sent me a photo of the “Farewell Celebration” poster and the yellow J. Crew shoes as initial inspiration, and requested something “quirky” in neutral tones with pops of color. I know Elizabeth adores music (and musicians…), so I also added a musical element. I kept seeing things that I thought Elizabeth would like, so this turned out to be my biggest board yet – it may not even qualify as an inspiration board. More of an event outline! Either way, I hope you enjoy it! What do you think edubs? (Check out Elizabeth’s blog, brown paper & grey linen.)
Mood: quirky vintage
Palette: beige, mustard, vermillion, with hints of kelly green
While I didn’t pull any images from it, I definitely had Lena Corwin’s fabulous wedding in mind while putting this board together. If you haven’t seen it already (it was featured in the Spring 2006 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings) you should definitely take a look.
Update! How perfect are these invitations via Brooklyn Bride? They really fit the look of the poster Elizabeth sent me originally.
Even though we’re still really in between seasons, with the hottest days of summer hopefully behind us and the rich colors of fall still ahead, I thought I’d go ahead and get really excited for fall anyway. At least in terms of visual inspiration, it may be my favorite season.
