Wedding Inspiration

Lovely Lemon

July 19, 2011

This lemon look is perfect for a late summer wedding… especially outdoors! The combination of fresh yellows and rustic browns goes exceptionally well together. I also think it’s nice to see actual lemons being used instead of just the color lemon.

Have fun, think out of the box, and when life gives you lemons… have a wedding! (And some refreshing lemonade, of course.)

Color Palettes

Aloe, Spearmint, Sand and Aquamarine

July 15, 2011

Earlier this week, I received an email from one of our lovely readers who recently got engaged and is need of a little color inspiration for her Scottsdale, Arizona wedding. She loved this ‘Pinqued My Pinterest’ post and wants a similar palette for her wedding but her fiance is not a fan of pinks, peaches, corals or any colors that lean towards the feminine.

Well, Devon, I’ve put together a palette for you which I hope both you and your fiance will like! The touches of coral in the Desert Chic board are a really pretty accent but they definitely have a feminine feel. Here, I’m sticking to neutrals and shades of blue and green to create a similar look that’s still chic, soft and pretty. Perfect for a desert wedding, I think!
