    This one is charming and so pretty in a very subtle way!

  • Stephanie Nikolopoulos says:

    The rose wreaths look like Greek “stefana.”

    I love the idea of cross-stitched invitations. I bet you could do a more quirky inspiration board on crafting and incorporate something along the lines of these more ironic cross-stitch projects:

  • Blair says:

    Oh, what a sweet vintage postcard! Love this subtle palette–being from the Midwest (well chicago) I think it is perfect for the setting!

  • jessica, a miniature rhino says:

    thanks for featuring my Custom Heart Samplers! I made one as a “ring pillow” for a wedding and the girl let me know she saw this…thanks!

  • Natasha says:

    i’m loving these regional inspiration boards.

    in keeping with this midwestern one, i’d love to see mackinac island.

  • Courtney Page says:

    Love this board…so peaceful…opposite of my wedding colors!!!

  • Sarah Elizabeth says:

    I love the subtle colors- they make a big impact when used together.

  • Sweet Lorraine says:

    Lovely! I swear, since I made my bridal bouquet out of dried wheat 3 days ago, I keep seeing wheat in weddings everywhere across the web!

  • Shana says:

    I live in Indiana, but I’m still one of those people who want to run as far away from the midwest as possible. lol But, still, great board nonetheless! As always. I agree – a Mackinac Island board would be awesome.

  • Jessica Latimer says:

    Who would have thought that wheat could look so chic. Great ideas.

  • Hello there, You have done an excellent job. I’ll certainly digg it and personally recommend to my friends. I’m confident they’ll be benefited from this web site.
