Lisanne emailed me with such an interesting request, that I just had to take her up on it. She wanted something that was one part Moroccan flair and one part vintage/bohemian chic. I have no idea if this board fits that description, but I think it turned out. In order to tie everything together, I stuck with a strong color palette throughout, mostly pink, red, and orange. For this wedding, I might also have bridesmaids wear a dress of their choice within a certain range of colors, and have groomsmen do the same for ties. I have had several requests for a board with a Moroccan feel to it, so I hope this board provides some inspiration for those brides, as well. (This is a nice board for warming things up, if you, like me, woke up to 4 degree weather.)

Mood: Bohemian Morocco
Palette: fuschia, red, orange, gold

Jess wrote me and requested a board with a color palette of ivory, black, and pale turquoise for her upcoming wedding in her grandmother’s garden. I love this color combination. It lends itself well to creating a retro/pop feel, without being too kitschy. I also really like the way the garden setting softens it and keeps it from being overly dramatic (sometimes black can be a little much, but other times it add just the right contrast, like here!).

Mood: new classic
Palette: black, turquoise, ivory

I’ve had this board sitting on my computer for a while now, and I thought, why not post it today? I love the idea of a wedding inspired by an icon, which often means a classic style icon like Grace Kelly. Instead, I wanted this board to be bright and unusual, like Frida herself.

Mood: vibrant, fiery
Palette: hot colors of all kinds
