Although circus themed weddings were all the rage a few years ago, they’ve seemed to make quite a comeback with the release of the beautiful love story, Water for Elephants. I myself have been reading the book and refuse to see the film until I’m finished! The amazing visual language and classic time period of it all is what inspired me to create this post. I know it’s not a look for everyone, but there’s no reason that little bits and pieces of it couldn’t be subtly incorporated into your own special day!

I loved the color of the Jacquard coat dress recently worn by Kate Middleton. Periwinkle is such a lovely blend of purple and blue. I like how it manages to be a cool color, yet summery at the same time!

This palette was inspired by the lovely bouquet photo at the bottom left; that soft petal pink on the rich green chair? Perfection!
