Cinco de Mayo’s tequila tasting post made me think it was time for some warm weather wedding inspiration, and today’s board definitely fits the bill. I’ve imagined this wedding in Miami or Palm Springs, though anywhere hot and sandy would do. The mostly white color scheme with green and orange accents is fun and playful, yet still somewhat understated – not easy to do with a color like orange! The panama hat with an orange grosgrain trim is an updated classic. A one-shouldered gown is a modern choice, and a pop of coral orange lipstick makes a statement. The cake is monochromatic with clean lines, letting other elements stand out. Frankly, I think this inspiration board would translate as well into a summertime party as it would into a wedding.
