This is one of my favorite color combinations, and I think that it works in a number of ways. It can be sweet like today’s inspiration board, or modern like this one, sassy like this one, or dramatic like this one, but they’re all quite bold. I was further reminded of how much I love these colors together when I saw Brooklyn Bride’s post last week from Wedding Style Guide. Today’s inspiration board is mostly white, with black and yellow as accents that play off each other, and I kept a little cafe or French bistro in mind when putting this together. At least, if I were to start my own little place, it would be in this color scheme, and it would almost certainly have a black and white tiled floor…

Mood: sweet, sophisticated, bold
Palette: white, black and yellow accents

Hello friends! I hope that you enjoyed the real weddings and guest posts as much as I did! There are so many wonderful bloggers out there who inspire me on a daily basis, and I’m so thrilled that five of them agreed to share their lovely vision with Snippet & Ink. And now, inspiration boards are back! It was nice to be away and have some time to recharge, and hopefully get back some of those creative juices (they get drained sometimes!), but it’s also nice to be back.

This board was inspired by the fabric sample in the top left corner, found via Absolutely Beautiful Things. I love the colors and the floral pattern, and thought they would make for a really unique wedding palette and style.

Mood: exotic, opulent
Palette: rust orange, sage green, periwinkle blue, ecru

I love a rustic look, but I also love a garden look. Here, I’ve softened a rustic venue and its more rugged elements with pale pinks and blues, plenty of beautiful flowers, and pretty calligraphy. In lieu of a traditional guest book, let guests write their notes on address cards and then file them alphabetically in an old recipe box – or use this as a way to organize escort cards instead. Cover some favorite hardbound books with kraft paper. It’s a simple and cost-effective decorative element which can double as a favor for guests to take home.

Mood: feminine, rustic
Palette: pink, blue, tan

Apparently gray is the accent color of the year, but I’m not sick of it yet! I love the way it looks here – both charcoal and dove gray – paired with pale pale blue. Something so sophisticated about it…

Mood: sweetly refined
Palette: charcoal, cyan, dove gray

Update! This photo that Chelsea shared with me is just perfect for this gray and blue palette.

If there are any colors that summer really showcases, it’s green and yellow. Once the trees have lost their blossoms, but before the grass dries up, greens and yellows dominate summer landscapes – as they do this wedding inspiration board.

Mood: relaxed summer charm
Palette: shades of green, yellows
