Color Inspiration for Weddings

This week our focus has been on wedding planning and we’ve provided some inspiration and shared some expert tips.   A common piece of advice?  Coordinating  around a color palate or theme is key to a beautiful event.   Today we’re “planning a wedding” around the color purple.  A great color this spring.    I’m loving this mood board from Snippet and Ink.  Kathryn calls it a “purple picnic wedding.”   

Jeanne Streiff created a stationery suite using the color purple.   For the event invite, she stamped the wedding bells from PSA Mr. & Mrs.  Peel & Stick stamps. She used a textured cardstock and 3-D paper purple flowers. 

For the thank-you card, she’s stamped the dress from PSA Mr. & Mrs. Peel & Stick stamps.   It coordinates perfectly with the invite.

She created a table place card that goes with the suite, too.   The bouquet is stamped from PSA Mr.& Mrs. Peel & Stick stamps.  This is such a great set for bridal. 

If I were planning a wedding with this stationery suite and this inspiration board, I might choose this event lighting.

And I might choose these as my centerpieces.   What a beautiful explosion of color!

Whatever you do when you are planning a wedding or event, be sure to start with inspiration first.   Choose images that make you happy and set the tone for what you envision.  Then go from there!  I hope you have enjoyed this week of bridal inspiration, have a great weekend!
