Wedding Wednesday: Purple Geometric Inspiration

Yesterday, I introduced you to the geometric trend with assorted bits and bobs of inspiration. Today, I wanted to put together a cohesive geometric inspired board with some classic wedding elements. The board is centered around this gorgeous purple Tony Ward gown with a rectangular neckline and square and rectangular paillettes.

I hope you enjoy the set!

Wedding Wednesday: Burnt Orange Color Palette Request

Today’s Wedding Wednesday boards come via a request from Carlaa who is having her wedding next July with burnt orange as the main color in her color palette. To keep a color such as burnt/dark orange from looking too “Fall,” the solution is to pair it with an equally saturated bright. So, here are three different color possibilities that I hope will help those of you who love orange and want to incorporate it in to your own Summer time wedding.

Wedding Wednesday: Pink to Purple Ombre Inspiration

Happy Hump Day! This week seems to be going by really fast. Perhaps it’s because I’m keeping busy as I am working on a reorganization and “spring” cleaning on my house and hoped to be done by the weekend. Likelihood of being done by Saturday? Ha ha…yeah, not going to happen. That’s okay though, my distraction (aka kiddo) makes up for it in cuteness.

Today’s Wedding Wednesday inspiration comes from one gorgeous gown from Atelier Versace Spring 2011. It runs a gorgeous ombre from pale pink to dark plum. Such a beautiful color palette that can easily be replicated in your own fete using the ombre effect from your bouquet to your cake. The key to using ombre in your wedding design is throwing in some solids here and there to keep the pattern from overloading the senses. Too much ombre can make a room so busy that the eye has nowhere to land. So, I hope you enjoy this bit of inspiration and that it gives your own creativity a spark.

Woot! It’s almost the weekend! On the agenda for my weekend: tux shopping with Mr. Wondermous and finishing up our Save the Dates (I will post them once I know my guests have received them). Speaking of my wedding, I thought I would show you that yes, I do in fact support the individual artisans and vintage purveyors of Etsy in the planning of my wedding.
