Peacock Palette Inspiration Board

Peacock Power! And a peacock color inspiration board to match. Peacock colors at weddings seem to be one of the most popular options for weddings. Whether you use their feathers, the colors, wear a diamond banked by sapphines or assorted other ideas, peacocks are popular with brides.  Oh, and don't forget, a few live peacocks will liven up your reception!

Lanterns and Floral Centerpieces

Looking for a different way to combine candlelight and flowers? Try these floral lanterns. Easy to make. Order simple lanterns, some flowers and white candles.  Take a little time to put them together yourself or have your florist do it. I'm not a big fan of having to put together centerpieces on the day of your wedding unless you have a friend or family member who isn't in the wedding party who you can trust to pull it all together and 'get them to the church on time' or in this case, the reception.

Periwinkle and Blue Inspiration Board

Looking for a periwinkle and sky blue inspiration board? Here you go! Am in love with the shoes and the flowers! And the cake at the top, unusual to see blue on a cake! The Knot suggests hiring a lighting pro to accent these bold colors...great idea! Add the blue and purple succulent post to this! Perfect color combos!

Robin's Egg Blue Wedding?

It's not Tiffany blue or a more aggressive cobalt, or even a nautical navy, instead it's the more refined and unique look of robin's egg blue that accent this wedding. 
Whether you choose to use the color in the bow on your wedding gown or bags for your wedding favors or out of town guests, the color confers a look of understated elegance on your wedding day.
My favorite? The bow on the bouquet and the decorated swing the ring bearer is standing on.  Both make great photos and add that little something extra to your wedding.  Whether it's the elegance of the bow on your bouquet or the relaxed look having a swing confers on your picnic wedding robin's egg blue brings a natural look to your big day. 
The flower girl almost looks like she's wearing denim, no frou frou Cinderella dress for her.  No, this is a little lady who is conceding to leave her jeans at home in deference to your day, but who isn't about to get dressed up like 'little bride.' She keeps her own personality and adds panache to the look of your day.
Birds nests and terrariums act as centerpieces on your tabletops.  And the wedding cake is a simple two tier cake with blue buttercream icing with cream colored edging. Simple. Understated. Elegant.
