Anje is having a laid-back, wedding with a cocktail and tapas reception. She wants a modern feel that is still romantic, mixing kumquat orange with Mediterranean blue. I hope this gives her some ideas! I might set up some tall bar tables with simple arrangements on them. I would use the Mediterranean blue on ribbon (decorations? favors?), paper (invitations?), and glass objects (vases? tableware?).

Mood: modern, romantic
Palette: poppy red, kumquat orange, Mediterranean blue

Happy Friday folks!

Pale pink and gold is delicate and sweet, and it would make for a pretty bridal shower or reception. And why not wear a blush-colored dress to change things up?

Mood: delicate, sweet

Chocolate and turquoise are such a pretty pair! That’s Landra’s color scheme for her wedding in Jamaica, with accents of silver and white. I think sand dollars are a nice element in a beach wedding, and the sand dollar cookies would make great favors. I’ve also seen sand dollars with guests’ names written on them as seating or place cards. To incorporate more silver, Landra could wrap her bouquets in a silvery ribbon, or use silver ink on her stationery. Also, I think a white sea shell is a unique way to carry your rings down the aisle.

Mood: beach glam
Palette: turquoise, chocolate, silver, white

That’s the name of a vineyard that I remember visiting as a kid, and I had their logo in mind when I put this board together. This board is for Melanie, who wanted a sort of frog prince theme in mind. Instead of teal and red like Melanie had suggested, I went with mostly green and fuschia, with some aqua (I hope that’s okay Melanie! I know you said you were open to some changes.) I would really play up a waterlily theme, and use lots of floating flowers (waterlilies specifically, if you can make that work). Good luck Melanie!

Mood: fairy tale romantic
Palette: green, fuschia, aqua

Update! Angel just left a comment pointing out her recent Wedding Bee post about a frog prince theme. Check it out for more inspiration.
Update! Take a look at the pretty gold box that Christy’s ring came in – just like the gold ball in the Frog Prince!
Update! Check out this darling lotus pad ring pillow by Myra Kim – perfect!

Sarah is having a sunflower-themed wedding in Spain, but this board would work just about anywhere sunflowers grow. Sunflowers are so rustic, and I think it would be really nice at a vineyard or farm.

Mood: sunny, rustic
Palette: yellow, brown
