Someone once said to me that vineyard weddings are a cliché. My answer to that would be, they’re a cliché the way roses are a cliché, and traditional vows, and wearing white, and having a Champagne toast. I certainly appreciate deviating from things just because that’s they way they’ve always been done, but there is also something to be said for tradition and classic style. If you want something classic, don’t avoid it just because it has been done before, because the truth is, even if you get married while skydiving or wearing a plaid wedding dress, you and your fiancé/e are the most unique thing about your wedding. I say, do what you want!

And what I wanted to do was make a classic vineyard wedding board today, full of grapes straight off the vine, and herbal details such as a lavender motif on the invitations and rosemary in the boutonnieres.

Mood: classic vineyard elegance
Palette: green, white

And of course, my sister and mother are both hooked now.Love this inspiration board. I just wish we knew the name of the dress in the bottom corner!
