This week just flew by, leaving me with some delightful things from around the web to share with you…

Love this round-up of suspenders.

The cleverest save-the-date I’ve seen in awhile, via simple + pretty.

Max Wanger rocks.

Inspired by air mail.

And by photos of magnolias.

Lovely dress by Leanne, via East Side Bride.

A Tennessee wedding captured by Dixie Pixel.

Send well wishes the old-fashioned way, via the Wedding Library.

And be sure to check out my guest post on The City Sage, my interview over at Old Sweet Song, and Darci‘s DIY series (one, two, three, four, five) based on one of my inspiration boards!

Have a wonderful weekend, lovelies!

I absolutely fell in love with this gorgeous tent from the Arabian Tent Company (photo by Polly Alexandre), so I thought I’d build a wedding board around it. Clean white and soft gray – a sweet palette that would work for almost any season, and in a variety of venues.

Mood: modern whimsy
Palette: white, dove, cloud

Maybe because it’s spring, but I’m really leaning toward pastels and muted colors lately. Today’s inspiration board imagines an overgrown garden, with a slightly wild, bohemian feel to it. Lots of flowers and vines, little votives hanging in trees, and hand-illustrated invitations create a sense of low-key elegance.

Mood: bohemian garden
Palette: lavender, green, cream

Another color palette that I’ve yet to tire of – I hope you still love it, too! Something about this inspiration board transports me to Paris… A mostly white and very pale gray background is accented with butter yellow and black. Stripes add a touch of whimsy: package favors in striped boxes, wrap your bouquet with a striped ribbon, decorate with classic striped hat boxes. Incorporate figs and blackberries into your floral elements for a touch of black that isn’t overly sleek or stark.

Mood: whimsical French chic
Palette: butter yellow, black, pale gray, white
