Red, Black + White Colored Wedding Inspiration

Nothing says love like the color red, right?  Red doesn’t just have to feel romantic, it could also be fun + vibrant like in these images below…color-inspiration-red-black-white-love

Pretty as a Peacock Feather-Inspired Wedding Inspiration

I’ve always loved Peacocks and their beautifully colored feathers. I think the look is timeless and I don’t think I could ever get sick of seeing peacock feather inspiration. I am actually incorporating a slight peacock feather touch to an event I am currently working on. When the feathers are added with deep purple, I think it adds even more depth and character. Peacock feathers look great as a bouquet as well and that could be a great option if would like to save money on your florals.

Fuschia, Lime + Forest Green Colored Wedding Inspiration

Summer is not over. We still have about a week, right?  And, with weather like I’ve been experiencing, I will cherish the week. I like spring, I like summer but I can’t help but feel ‘colorless’ in the thick of fall. I love color and I don’t think fall weddings have to be the usual reds and rusts and yellows that are synonomous. For this color inspiration, I’ve been thinking earthy with a touch of feminine. It was inspired by the great Crate & Barrel – where I saw the pillow below with a sweet (or earthy feminine, rather) color palette that would be lovely for a fall wedding! When fall arrives, that is. :)

Enjoy the inspiration…

Yellow, Fuschia + Periwinkle Colored Wedding Inspiration

I was thinking yellow + fuschia color inspiration when I received some of these great images below from the sweet Cori Cook of Cori Cook Floral Design of the bouquets + centerpieces she designed, photographed by Karina Heneghan.  I like how the blue/periwinkle adds depth + even more variety to the fuschia orchids + flowers.  I picture wedding colors like this during the spring, summer or fall at a country club or golf club, or even beachside sipping lemonade with blueberry garnish. I also like how the cake below, photographed by Laurie Peacock, fits in so nicely without being too much color.

Enjoy the inspiration…

Blue and Gray Colored Wedding Inspiration

It is no surprise I love gray  in weddings + decor. I like pairing it with different colors other than the popular yellow + green. To be honest, personally, I haven’t always been the biggest fan of the color blue. [Or brown while we're on the subject.] For weddings, I always saw it as a common beach wedding color, often used in a similar way. With the peacock feather trend in weddings that came, you started seeing blue used a little more. I have grown to like blue because it can be modern… remember that great navy blue and peach wedding I featured?

So…if you’re going blue, you may want to incorporate various shades of blue [or your favorite color]. Like centerpieces + the like, various shades or colors add depth….be blue – in various shades!

Enjoy the inspiration…

A Beautiful Alice in Wonderland-themed Tea Party

Just when I was ready to post some entertaining ideas, I spotted these absolutely lovely images of this Alice in Wonderland-themed Tea Party on the blog of the very talented Adrienne Gunde – whose work and posts I always look forward to.

The tea party was organized by Joanna Chong of Joanna Events for her mother’s birthday. I absolutely love when people use vibrant colors + fun decor like Joanna did – I mean look at these beautiful pictures! Thank  you Adrienne for allowing me to share these images with my readers.  I can imagine how fun it was to be there! Joanna is just getting started in wedding and event planning, and I would say from the look of this, she has a promising future…

This summer, take the tea party outside + have even more fun!

Enjoy the inspiration…

Plum and Silver Colored Wedding Inspiration

This weekend’s inspiration is color – plum + silver. I like the clean silver + cream colors, and the pops of color the plum provides. I’d actually like to see these colors for a fall wedding bride who is looking to escape the traditional ‘autumn leave colored tones’ of the season. I could also see this at a vineyard wedding or in wine country.

Enjoy the inspiration…

The Gray and Tan Suit Sporting Groom + Groomsmen

I just love gray and tan suits on the groom + groomsmen….especially for an outdoor or beach area wedding! There is just such a clean look to it that I love. If your man and his groomsmen aren’t into the traditional black tuxedos or suits, these are a great alternative. Look at these dapper men [in these great photos, might I add!] sporting their respective grays and tans …

Inspiration: Tropical Blue, Summer Yellow + White

With June comes an abundance of summery colors like yellow, feminine blues + aquas. Spring + summer weddings are the perfect time for those tan suits for the men + and the beachy flowy dresses for women. My recent color love is tropical blue paired with summer yellow, white + and even tan + brown. Tropical blue + tan are even throughout our city home – those colors provide a nice relaxing environment.

I adore these colors for a beach or island summer wedding. Enjoy the inspiration…
