I can’t seem to pass up any holiday on the wedding front so I figure why not dazzle you all with a presidential red and pretty in (light) blue inspiration board filled with lots of wedding fun. Since it’s not the 4th of July, I’m steering clear of red + navy and instead keeping it clean and crisp with a pale pond blue and bright red. It may be the middle of February but that doesn’t mean we’re not in summer planning mode, and this palette is perfect for a summer affair; I’m envisioning beach, modern and bright… Keep dreaming, summer isn’t too far off!
As you may know, I have a small obsession with all the something blues floating around the wedding planning world so I couldn’t help myself from devoting a full post to a something blue winter edition. While I love the blue wedding palette, this is not it. Today is just for those little something blues that you may not have thought to incorporate in your winter wedding. Each one is fun and maybe even a little unique, but all are perfect for your winter wedding. We’ve picked a blue photo prop (yes, it’s a blue velour chair – goes perfectly with a snowy landscape), blue bridesmaids dresses, blue macarons, blue mittens, a blue tie for your groom, a blue floral headpiece, a blue cake decoration, and that little something blue in your wedding bouquet…
Happy New Year’s Eve! I don’t know about you but I cannot believe that it’s the end of 2012! Wasn’t it just the beginning?? I wanted to do something in the spirit of a New Year’s Eve wedding today and was inspired by my friend throwing her newly engaged brother and soon-to-be sister in law an engagement party yesterday with a midnight blue and silver theme. That got me thinking how I actually do love midnight blue and how it’s well, a perfectly fitting color for NYE for no other reason than it just is!
So I’m doing my own spin on this color palette for a New Years inspiration board of a post. You can put the pieces together but we have a festive blend of fashion (for the girls and boys), decor, floral and some fun touches like these awesome blue agate coasters (last photo)!
My inspiration for our 13th day of Christmas comes straight from the delicate and wintry color light blue (or as I like to call it…icy blue!) Seeing very pale blue tones at a wedding makes me think snowflakes, icicles, and the month of January but that’s no reason why icy blue wouldn’t make an incredible before Christmas wedding palette.
So we’re thinking outside of the box today with icy blue everything… a wedding gown, a table setting, a bow tie, an engagement ring? (yes, please!), Christmas tree decorations (a Christmas wedding must have a Christmas tree), invitations, bridesmaids dresses, and, well… any other fun details you can think of to make it merry + icy blue for your pre-winter Christmas wedding!
I know I always say this but I love when I almost convince myself to dream of things like having a destination wedding in Paris, or wearing a crazy organza avant-garde wedding gown, or many of the other things that I write about but would never imagine myself doing at my own someday wedding! And today, here we go again… I’m not really a decisive color person. Black is sadly my favorite but I have a soft spot for deep blue and bright orange in home decor and I really like bright colored dresses (but not shirts) so when it comes to the wedding palette, I’m all over the map… and I imagine I’m not the only one who just can’t nail down some color choices.
As you go back and forth between your options, may I suggest you consider one that isn’t really too popular in the wedding circuit but boy is it beautiful! So much that I think I’ve done it again! I’ve sold myself on the blue-grey wedding color palette! As always, with our wedding palettes these are meant to be our own version of the traditional inspiration board; I like to combine different elements of a wedding that are all easy enough to replicate for any bride to be. I’m loving our picks to take us into the weekend and hopefully convince you all how wonderful this palette can be! Some of my favorites… the handcrafted blue-grey wedding invites (third photo), my top choice for a wedding dessert, the macaroon – in a blue-grey tint (sixth photo), a pearl necklace with a little something blue (second photo), an uber-artsy pale blue headpiece (forth photo), blue-grey nail polish for the bride (eleventh photo) and my very favorite… the never-do-you-see-at-a-wedding blue-grey bow tie (thirteenth photo). The beauties of the blue-grey wedding palette.. anddddd onto the weekend! Enjoy
