Summer Color Scheme: Blue + White

Posted by Caitlin on Aug 07, 2013

Our third favorite summer color scheme — blue and white! This inspiration board is fit for a modern bride who wants to incorporate art deco patterns into her stationery thanks to her sapphire emerald cut engagement ring. Who says you can’t be the only one wearing white? Since you’ll be wearing a Grecian goddess wedding dress, keep it casual and ask your bridesmaids to wear long chiffon dresses with strappy gladiator sandals. Choose a bouquet filled with peonies, dusty miller, and silver brunia balls and a blue tie along with a matching boutonniere for your groom’s attire and lapel, respectively. Don’t forget to pick a monogrammed cake that is almost too pretty to eat. Almost!

Summer Color Scheme: Hot Pink + Gold

Posted by Caitlin on Aug 06, 2013

Our second favorite summer color scheme — hot pink and gold! This inspiration board is fit for a classic bride seeking a ballroom wedding, but with a trendy twist. Don’t let the chandeliers take the spotlight at your reception, infuse pops of hot pink throughout instead. Strike a pose in a pair of Sam Edelman spiked high heels while holding your bridal bouquet filled with peonies and dahlias. Serve guests a “Shirley Temple” signature cocktail during cocktail hour, and seat yourself in style with matching”bride” and “groom” bunting chair decor. Enjoy a savory sweet alternative dessert like popsicles and cut the heart-topped cake at the end of the night. Your sweet tooth will be more than satisfied!

This week on the blog, we’re continuing with our favorite summer color schemes. First up — yellow and brown! This inspiration board is fit for a rustic bride seeking a barn or ranch wedding. {Cue the horses.} Choose a bridal bouquet filled with daisies and sunflowers and a boutonniere filled with billy balls for your groom’s lapel. Show your country charm by wearing a pair of cowboy boots, Tip: Give your bridesmaids matching pairs as thank you gifts. No cocktail hour is complete without a freshly squeezed lemonade served in mason jars, which can double as favors, perhaps? Or maybe “Make Your Own Butter” kits set at each place setting to complement guests’ own down home cooking recipes.
