I’m sure by now you all know how much I love a green and white inspiration board. For this wedding, I imagine a cool couple with modern style and a playful side. The cake stands, invitations, and bird cage (for holding notes from guests) incorporate a bird motif without going overboard. Wouldn’t this make a beautiful and refreshing spring or summer wedding?

Mood: modern, playful
Palette: crisp white, lime green

I can’t believe this is my 200th inspiration board! Snippet & Ink started as a fun way for me to fill extra time, and has recently turned into a full-time job. Thank you for that, readers! There is no way that I would have continued to blog if not for your encouraging comments and thoughtful emails. I can’t always respond to everything, but please know how much your words mean to me. Check back in later today for a 200th-Post-Thank-You Giveaway, sponsored by Zinke Design

Mood: intimate, rustic
Palette: brown, green, purple

I think this inspiration board would work for a destination wedding in Mexico (clearly), or even a wedding or rehearsal dinner at a Mexican restaurant or with a Mexican theme. It could even be translated into a non-wedding party! I love bright, bold colors, and I think that a mostly warm palette makes perfect sense, but here I balanced it with white and an unexpected pale turquoise. Miniature pi├▒atas would be a fun favor, at the kids’ table or for everyone. And this save-the-date by Bird and Banner would definitely set the tone for a fun, Mexican-themed wedding.

Mood: sassy fun
Palette: yellow, red, pale turquoise

Since the Kentucky Derby is tomorrow, I thought it would be fitting to post a wedding inspiration board with that theme. It wouldn’t be a Kentucky Derby wedding without mint juleps, bluegrass, roses and horseshoes. Let the men wear seersucker and the ladies wear fabulous hats, and make sure to send your guests home with a miniature version of Derby pie. If you want to hold your wedding on the actual day of the Kentucky Derby, it might be fun to have cards at each seat for guests to “bet” on which horse will win.

Mood: charming Southern fun
Palette: red, blue, white

More than any other colors, pale blue and yellow make me think of spring, especially early spring. This board probably would have been perfect closer to Easter, but I so wanted to make an inspiration board using the beautiful Italian cotton ribbons from Angela Liguori!

Mood: soft light, sweet spring
Palette: pale blue, pale yellow, white
