I knew when I saw this bouquet by Ariella Chezar in an issue of Well Wed that I had to include it in an inspiration board – some kind of secret garden, that bursts into color and life as soon as you discover it behind a hidden garden gate. And I would make sure that there was a swing like this, with ribbons tied to it echoing those tied to the bouquet. The palette and venue make this a flexible enough wedding to work in spring, summer or fall (personally, I’m dreaming of spring these days…). And though it could certainly be applied to a larger wedding, I’m thinking of a more intimate party in a special little walled garden.

Mood: vibrant, secret garden
Palette: satsuma orange, sweet peach, garden green

I love this color of pink – like the inside of a nautilus. Accented with black, it’s a little bit sexy, and with details like black millinery net and vintage paper cake decorations it’s sweet and whimsical. I imagine this wedding would take place in a whimsical and romantic city, like Paris or maybe New Orleans…

Mood: sexy, whimsically romantic
Palette: shell pink, sleek black

Barely-there pink often comes across as saccharine and girlish, but when paired with almost-black, ink blue it is moody and mysteriously romantic. This wedding board was largely inspired by Kari Herer’s gorgeous photo of peonies – if you haven’t seen her work, you must stop by her Etsy store – and the photo of blackberries and figs echo the colors perfectly. I’d love to see a bedroom based on this palette…

Mood: moody, romantic
Palette: inky midnight blue, soft pale pink

I probably could have posted this photo by Ellen Von Unwerth on its own to provide you with inspiration today, but I couldn’t resist a wedding board based on Carolina Herrera’s “ladylike linen top and buttery silk faille and tulle skirt” (Vogue’s description).

Mood: lush, colonial Caribbean
Palette: yellow, ivory, black, tropical green
