Inspiration Board #25: Picnic Wedding

June 08

The inspiration for this board came from Karen Mordechai‘s photo from her Sunday Suppers blog (second row, far right). I picture this wedding as a very casual picnic style wedding. Rustic peach cobbler would be served instead of wedding cake, and family heirlooms, such as the cameo below, would give this wedding a personal touch. For more picnic ideas check out this board from Snippet &  Ink.

Inspiration Board #24: On the Lake


I love a pretty lake, and a love the idea of a wedding inspired by this setting, but not taken to literally. I imagine this wedding with soft mint blue touches and a very casual, but elegant vibe throughout.

Pretty Garden Clusters

I just love the look of an organic grouping of garden flowers.

The look is so pretty, homey, and not overly styled.

Plus, you can use potted flowers which is great for the budget and is a nice green option for decor.

Best of all, they can be used as a back drop for a ceremony, like with these flowers above.

See what I mean?
