The Look: Tropical Destination Glam

4 May

To go along with today’s destination inspiration board, here is a little fashion/style inspiration. The bride to be wanted a flowy white gown and loved this bouquet of mixed pinks. Borrowing the pale pink shades from the bouquet would be perfect for nails and makeup. I love a chunky pair of bold turquoise earrings to add a pop of color to the look. If it’s a beach ceremony, a pair of turquoise jeweled sandals would be fab and then maybe a pair of heels for dancing the night away on resort the pool deck (at least until you just give up and go barefoot).

Inspiration: Tropical Destination Glam

4 May

I am a big fan of today’s board, mostly because it’s for a real bride. This friend of mine knew what she wanted, but just needed a little help putting it into a cohesive board. She is having a destination in Puerto Rico with the ceremony on the beach and reception on the pool deck of the resort. She loves turquoise and pink and had an image in her head of a pink orchid against a turquoise ocean. She wanted it to be modern with a little bit of glam. She provided some great centerpiece pics – I love the blue plexi glass with the coral and candles! I thought that square chargers and bold graphic print napkins were a great way to keep the table settings modern. And how cute is the message in a bottle seating card idea? I know this wedding is going to be beautiful and I can’t wait to see pics!

Spring Bouquet Inspiration (Part II): Blushing Blooms

26 Apr

Continuing my week of spring bouquet inspiration with beautiful pale pink hues. Arguably one of the most popular floral shades – I guess there are just a lot of girly girls out there. There are so many pink flowers out there. If you want to be a little different maybe steer clear of the go-tos like peonies, roses and ranunculus. Challenge you florist to come up with some alternate blooms like sweet peas, dahlias, astilbe or tulips.

Inspiration: Summer Brights Bridal Shower

30 Mar

When I came across this bridal shower invitation on Invitation Crush I was instantly drawn to the beautiful color combo of orange, teal and chartreuse. It is such a perfect palette for a summer bridal shower.

Since bright on bright has been one of my favorite recent trends, I was inspired to do a little board to show how these colors can come together and create an amazingly cheery mood!
