Board #11 – Shades of purple and grey

A friend of mine (from why back in elementary school!) requested a board with black, white, grey, and shades of purple. This is a pretty formal and muted palette, so I kicked it up a notch by throwing in a striped motif. Stripes are great because you can incorporate them throughout the wedding, from linens, to attire, to invites, to the cake! Enjoy!

Inspiration Board #5 – Navy, Purple, and Lace

I made this for a very good friend of mine – you know who you are!! When she told me the color palette, I instantly pictured a lush garden reception with classic and formal details, but a little on the non-traditional side. I envisioned a groom in a dark suit with a bright fun tie and bridesmaids in fun dresses. These anthropologie gowns fit the bill! I love the subtle inclusion of lace in the cake and the bridesmaids adorable gowns. The Anna Maier Ulla-Maija gown is to DIE for. I also love Sperry tents for a garden reception in the spring. Tell me what you think below!

1. Cake – classic and elegant

2. Groom’s outfit – fun and formal, but not stuffy!

3. Lace gown – do yourself a favor and check out this amazing wedding. The venue in Charleston is to die for!

4. Sperry tent – totally gorgeous. So worth the expense ( they are VERY pricey! )

5. Bouquet – the wedding this bouquet came from has STUNNING flowers.

6. Bridesmaids – adorable. ‘Nuf said.

7. Invite – I couldn’t find where these came from but I LOVE the classic filigree but the modern layout.
