I really love the idea of a wedding motif – not a theme, exactly, just something that runs throughout the event. For this summer inspiration board, cherries seemed like a sweet choice. In baskets as centerpieces, in baggies for favors, or even in a hat band or boutonniere, cherries are a simple and affordable motif. You can even incorporate them into your invitations. In the rest of its details, this board feels like vintage Americana at its best: a banjo, patriotic bunting, old-fashioned typeface. If I could sum it up in one line, I’d call it “summer in a small town.”
