How cool do you have to be to wear a mini-dress on your wedding day? Pair it with a chic mini-coat and yellow heels, and you’re all set. (Well, that and figure out where that amazing interior is and convince them to let you have your reception there.) The different elements in this wedding board – from the mix-tape invitation to the craspedia bouquet – are both modern and retro mod, and I think they fit together nicely. I included pops of both lemon yellow and lime green here, but you could easily go with one or the other.

Mood: playful, mod
Palette: lemon, lime, white, touches of gray

    It would be incredible if more brides did this sort of thing, breaking away from the traditional ball-style gown, and making it their own.

    The buttons definitely made me laugh. And, with a button-making machine at home, it wouldn’t be difficult to duplicate. What a cute idea for favors, etc!
