Finally folks – so sorry about the delayed post! Since coco + kelley‘s color week determined that pink is the new color of the year (see my color predictions here), and that gray will be around for awhile, I thought I’d play with those colors together. A wedding board that hopefully adds a touch of romance to your day…

Mood: warm and cool, softly romantic
Palette: pale pink and cool gray

How fabulous is that little veil by Thelma Designs? I haven’t seen anything quite like it, and I couldn’t resist creating an inspiration board with it. For some reason it struck me as a vintage piece, so I went with a wedding board with a bit of retro charm. What would you include here?

Mood: retro charm
Palette: navy blue, white, gold

I don’t know about you, but I so wish the weather was to right to sit outside in the sun with a book and a bowl of summer fruit. Hence today’s inspiration board. Bright summer sun, filtered through an orchard thick with peaches, and a casual meal in the late afternoon, once the day has cooled off a bit. Set up games, maybe a tire swing, and serve family favorites for dessert. Instead of flowers, decorate tables with baskets of peaches that guests can take home.

Mood: sunny, homegrown
Palette: sweet peach, summer green

One of my favorite things is opening an email and seeing beautiful work from a new vendor, and Minna Designs is a perfect example of this. With a background in design and fine arts, Minna made her first wedding invitation for a friend’s wedding, and now she’s extending her creativity to the rest of us. Here are some of my favorite pieces…

These are just some of Minna’s custom designs. See more at Minna Designs’ website, and see updates at her blog. And if you’re in the New York area, head over to the Bridal Show at Oheka Castle on Thursday to meet Minna and see some of her work in person.
