Pink and green is a classic color combination for a reason – it’s undeniably sweet and romantic! For today’s inspiration board, I’ve kept the pink and green very pale, and set them against a backdrop of crisp white. A paisley tie and drinking straws tied in knots add a touch of whimsy, while roses and a porcelain-inspired cake lend classic sophistication.

Mood: sweet and preppy
Palette: bubble gum, mint, crisp white

You may already know about what a great resource is for finding the dress of your dreams at a great price. If you haven’t checked it out yet, then I’ve got news that’s going to send you straight there. They’ve just added accessories and veils!

If you’re looking for beautiful accessories or the perfect dress, but don’t want to pay full price, head on over to Oh, and if you’re on the other side of your wedding, and trying to sell some of those same items, there is no charge for accessory listings until April 30.

Daisies are sweet and simple, and perfect for an easy going wedding luncheon under a clear blue sky. They make for a darling motif and it doesn’t hurt that they’re also incredibly easy on the wallet…
