I know I’ve been mostly posting autumn inspiration boards lately since it’s, um, autumn. But for some reason I was feeling inspired by pansies and violets, and just had to make a sweet little wedding board with them as the focus. Cut pansies don’t last very long when they’re cut, and they wilt quickly when out of water, so potted pansies and violets are a good choice – and can double as favors for your guests. If you want to use them in your bouquet, keep it in water until the very last minute.

Mood: simple romantic whimsy
Palette: violet, lavender, green, gray

    Pansies are a harbinger of autumn to me–we always planted rows of them right around this time of year. Your boards always hit a note of nostalgia with me, which is part of what a wedding is all about. So, perfect! In more ways than one!
