Board #271 | Lemon-Lime

How cool do you have to be to wear a mini-dress on your wedding day? Pair it with a chic mini-coat and yellow heels, and you’re all set. (Well, that and figure out where that amazing interior is and convince them to let you have your reception there.) The different elements in this wedding board – from the mix-tape invitation to the craspedia bouquet – are both modern and retro mod, and I think they fit together nicely. I included pops of both lemon yellow and lime green here, but you could easily go with one or the other.

Mood: playful, mod
Palette: lemon, lime, white, touches of gray

    It would be incredible if more brides did this sort of thing, breaking away from the traditional ball-style gown, and making it their own.

  • Colleen says:

    The buttons definitely made me laugh. And, with a button-making machine at home, it wouldn’t be difficult to duplicate. What a cute idea for favors, etc!

  • Victoria Lynn says:

    Kathryn, I love the yellow shoes!! I have been trying to find some just like these for my wedding!

    I’m loving the yellow, white and grey these days. Great combination with so many possibilities. The mini dress is very cool and chic…and the yellow shoes totally make it.

    GORGEOUS! As always, I love it. Such a clean, crisp feel to it. And you are right…there is definitely something striking about the bride who dares to be different!

  • Hi excellent blog! Does running a blog like this require a massive amount work?
    I have virtually no understanding of coding however
    I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, should you have
    any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off subject however I simply needed to ask.
