Can you tell that I’m ready for summer? And that I’m really loving this lawn green right now? I also like this as an option for a pink-and-green palette…

This weekend is going to be action packed! I will be checking out some wedding venues (!) and spending some quality time with my girl friends to celebrate one of them getting married this fall. And then as soon as that’s over, I get to pack my life into boxes and move to an entirely new state… I’m sure I’ll be asking all of you for your tips and recommendations. In the meantime, here are some of my favorite links from around the web this week…

Another use for security envelopes.

Twinkle, twinkle little string lights.

I’m in love with this imaginary couple’s wedding shoot.

Sometimes eloping sounds like the best option, via {frolic!}.

Never thought I wanted a garter. Until now.

If you’re not already dreaming of summer, you will be.

But if you don’t want to say goodbye to spring just yet, check out my spring wedding posts over at Ritzy Bee, here, here, here and here.

Yes, I know – we’ve already covered how much I love green and white, and whenever I’m feeling pressed for a color palette, I challenge myself to make a green and white inspiration board that looks new. I’m not sure if this succeeds at that, but I sure do love the various shades here, and the old fashioned garden look. For any of you who are struggling with choosing wedding colors, I suggest that you strongly consider this simple palette. It will work in almost any venue, every season, and it can be made to look however you like, from romantic to traditional to sleek and modern.

Mood: old-fashioned garden romance
Palette: bottle green, olive, chalk

I love the colors found in this photo of old jewelry boxes – that pale, barely there seaglass blue, and that orange! I would call it rust, but it’s far to soft and velvety for that. I think this would make for a beautiful summer palette – it’s fresh, yet there’s something classically romantic about it. Perhaps for a wedding in the desert, or on the beach.

Mood: fresh romance
Palette: seaglass, orange velvet
