Doesn’t this green remind you of the tiny leaf buds that start popping out in early spring? Inspired by this stunning photo of Vera Wang‘s green dress, I thought black slate (a sort of chalkboard gray) and leaf bud green would be a lovely and unexpected Spring palette, and a nice choice for the first inspiration board of March. It has a slightly modern feel that balances sweetly romantic details like bows and springerle cookies and vines, and I think it could work in a wide range of venues from an historic estate to an industrial loft.

Mood: romance with a modern twist
Palette: black slate, pastel spring green, cream white

    Simply stunning, like the way spring looks the moment before it blossoms – an appropriate metaphor for any new bride!

    I've tried this green Vera dress on and it was really fantastic, and wasn't that expensive. I think it was under 3K. They have a white version, but it didn't have the same wow effect. I might have even bought it, but it made my skin look kind of pink in a not so flattering way. Anyway, it looks amazing in this board.
