Board #70 | Marigold and Gray

Emily wrote me and said that she is having a classic, yet quirky, outdoor wedding. Her color scheme is marigold, gray, and cream. Here are some elements that I think fit that description nicely (I especially like the Monopoly tokens – maybe for seating cards or table names or something? – and the shoes). I also can’t get over that incredible boutonniere – it just screams fun.

Mood: bright, classic yet quirky
Palette: marigold, gray, cream

    I read somewhere on your blog that you weren't a big fan of this board, but I disagree. I love it! These are the colors that I am using for my end of September wedding in Colorado. I love, love, LOVE your blog…it has given me so much inspiration & has helped me figure out what kind of wedding I really want. Thank you for all that you do!
