It’s raining and this board is purple. There you have it. Apparently gray is the accent color of the year, and you can see why. It’s subtle and sophisticated, and it adds some depth to your other color choices. And I think this palette would work nicely in either Winter or Spring. Something to think about when choosing your colors: they shouldn’t have to compete with each other. This board ended up mostly purple with touches of gray, but mostly gray with touches of purple would have been nice, too. Keeping equal amounts of all your colors, you can end up with something that resembles a circus more than a wedding (this is especially true when you combine two or three bright colors).

Mood: sweetly sophisticated
Palette: purple, gray, white

Is a little springtime too much to ask for? I guess a sunshiny picnic wedding board will have to do for now.

Stephanie left a comment on my last board saying that it could easily be tweaked into a Greek board, which is funny because this is my next board! It’s not really a Greek board in the way she was thinking, but the palette is inspired entirely by the blue and white architecture of Greek islands.

Mood: bright and warm
Palette: lapis lazuli blue, bright white

There are the island destination weddings, but what about an Italian villa? That’s what I imagined here, with olive leaves, vineyards, a courtyard reception, and that incredible Zac Posen dress. And you all know how much I love a green and white wedding.

Mood: old world charm
Palette: green, gold, white

Diane wanted a board to help her pull together her vintage Mexican inspired wedding. Her colors are white, red, and aqua, and she wants to incorporate Mexican traditions to celebrate her and her fiance’s heritage. To fit the bill, this board includes Mexican wedding cookie favors, white papeles picados, and a tequila bar among other things. I would also have galvanized tubs of Mexican sodas, like Jarritos and Peñafiel, and if I could have found better images I would have made sure to include white tissue paper flowers.

Mood: ¡fiesta!
Palette: red, white, aqua
