Trend Alert: Powder Blue & Pewter

Powder blue and pewter has the perfect ring to it.. kind of just rolls off the tongue. And similarly, these two colors look just as great together as they sound. For a spring or summer wedding, pairing the pales of blue with pewter makes for an elegant combo that leaves room to add bolder decor pieces here and there!

Happy Monday!

Off the Beaten Path: Ombre, Ombre, Ombre

Ombre.. What is it and why for a wedding? Not only is it trendy these days, but it’s also fun for dazzling up your wedding details. This isn’t something that needs to be used all over your wedding; keep it to one or two elements and you are golden because it gives just enough of a statement that you can keep it to a minimum. You can blend the ombre details into your color scheme and use it as creatively as you can; invites, fashion, or food. They all work when done right!

Oh and if you’re wondering what exactly ombre is? Graduating colors from light to dark – or vice versa.

Enjoy :)

Shades of Mint

Have you heard the Pantone color of the year is Mint? {Just kidding}… it’s actually Emerald! But who needs emerald when you can have some summery shades of mint…

The truth is I love them both, but today is just proof that mint is not only fun but a fresh color for brides who are looking for something a little different. So where do we start? Fashion of course! You can dress the maids in mint, you can even dress the groom in mint, you can even accessorize with mint (floral crown or manicure anyone?), or if minty clothing isn’t your thing, you can decorate with it for a more subtle touch. But you can’t go wrong especially in the spring or summer!

And while it may not be the 2013 color of the year, who knows what the winning color will be next year…

Board {#10} Peachs & Blues

Happy Tuesday lovelies! After a rocky start to the week {major Monday blues} I wanted a good kind of blue for a happier Tuesday! So peaches and blues it is for today; the perfect inspiration for a mid-May wedding. You don’t always see shades of blue in one palette but when complimented by a peach or pale pink, a lighter blue and a dusty grey-blue work just right together! The evidence? In pictures…
