Okay, before moving on to the inspiration board, I have to remind everyone that you have until midnight on Friday to enter the NYC engagement shoot giveaway! Don’t miss out!

My goal with today’s inspiration board was to demonstrate how yellow can be used in an autumn wedding, though I think this would work equally well for a late summer event. Slightly golden yellow, the brown of that warm, worn wood that you find on gorgeous old farm tables, and warm cream… perfectly cheery for a sunny autumn day.

Mood: sunny, warm
Palette: golden yellow, oak, cream

    This is beautiful. I'm going to have an October wedding, and when I asked my fiance if there were any colors he wanted to incorporate, he immediately said "yellow". I'm thinking a marigold yellow…in fact, I found those JCrew Babette flats with the feathers on ebay, and they are inspiring the colors for the whole thing…marigold and a dark rustic brown. It's going to (hopefully) be in a VA barn, and I want to keep the whole thing earthy and autumnal without being too obvious!Anyways….I love all of your boards!!! :)

    Lovely board! Seatwo… I wore yellow shoes on my wedding day, too, and so did my bridesmaid. I also had a yellow scarf/shawl. I am so glad we kept our wedding so bright and cheery. Your wedding sounds like it is going to beautiful.

    Yellow and brown are getting to be a more popular color combination at weddings.
