If you’re a long time reader of Snippet & Ink, then you know how much I love a classic green and white wedding – it’s always such a timeless choice, and a look that is easy to execute well. Today, I wanted to take that classic palette and give it a fun and preppy kick with some stripes: a skirt for the bridesmaids, an under cloth for the table, a tie for the groom. Maybe envelope liners, too? I love simple details that, while elegant, are totally DIY-able, like fruit bowl centerpieces and finger sandwiches. White calligraphy on green envelopes is a playful and updated touch. And the cap sleeved eyelet dress from Lilly Pulitzer is so perfectly preppy, it seemed made for this inspiration board.

Mood: classic playful preppy
Palette: lawn green, white, cream
