Outdoor Purple Wedding in Spring

Today, we are swooning over this amazingly beautiful violet wedding that Tracey and Mark held in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

Their special day was filled with blossoming trees, lavender colored centerpieces, and bright floral wedding invitations – can you tell we’re already dreaming of springtime over here? Their wedding colors were purple and white, and these young lovebirds did a fabulous job making sure every piece of decor matched one another.

There is something so special about a morning wedding during spring. It just feels right! Their angelic country club nuptials were held in a stunning ballroom, filled with gorgeous beams of natural sunlight. However, our favorite pictures from this wedding day, were snapped on the serene golf course. Romantic is the only word that comes to mind when looking at this purple wedding.  And it’s coming to us, just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Rustic Backyard Wedding With Floral Hues

Happy Thursday all! We are just smitten by this rustic backyard wedding taking place at the Danada House in Wheaton, Illinois. Brent and Annamarie celebrated their big day with floral hues, lace and a gorgeous backyard venue. The soft natural colors go perfectly with each of the other special aspects of the couples’ big day. This outdoor wedding is ideal for springtime. We hope you enjoy this inspiration as much as we do.

From the Bride…

We wanted to bring the outside in!  We decided on a garden party theme for that reason.  Brent collected and organized all of our centerpieces, quite the task for 25 tables and 7-10 items per table. We visited garage sales and resale shops for months to collect everything. He also hand-made our table numbers. I didn’t want to choose wedding colors per se, so instead we just went with a floral theme, with blush to compliment my dress, blues to compliment the men’s suits, ivories, and lots of greenery.  Around my bouquet was the lace cuff from my mother’s wedding dress, and my grandmother’s wedding day pearls.  I also had my family’s dog come and visit for a few pictures! The day went perfectly and it was captured so beautifully by our photographer Ashley Dru!

Pink Theme Garden Wedding

Today, we are thrilled to be sharing this absolutely beautiful garden wedding taken in Austin, Texas! The Wildflower Center made an outstanding venue choice. This public garden showcases a diverse set of flowers and native plants, as well as expansive meadows.

Kendra and Byron’s wedding was filled with blooming bouquets, lush trees, and softly swaying fields. The vibrant pink theme made its way across all aspects of their wedding, from their premium invitations to their adorable reception centerpieces. We love the simple touches these young lovebirds created for their once-in-a-lifetime union. This outdoor wedding is ideal for spring or summer. The relaxed atmosphere made this garden wedding extra memorable.

Blue and Orange Bridal Shower Brunch

Get ready for a bridal shower look with a new twist: A citrus-inspired brunch with navy blue.

Fresh colors of peach, orange and cream look beautiful against navy blue and greens. We love how this theme uses citrus colors and flavors to produce some stunning bridal shower decor. Serve orange or peach-shaped cookies and add lemons to table garland for festive flare! This blue and orange decor is sure to liven up your spring or summer bridal shower.

Let this citrus-inspired shower inspire you to add details you know she’ll love.

Featured Bridal Shower Invitation: Sweet Nectarine. See our full Bridal Shower Invitation Collection here.

A picture is worth a thousand words. We love this stylish bridal shower invitation and how it shows off a brunch filled with plenty of Champagne.

Here are ways to decorate a bridal shower inspired by colors and flavors of citrus:

Why not literally serve cookies that look like peaches? These Orange Infused Sweet Ricotta Peach Cookies are a cute way to add citrus flavors and color to your bridal shower brunch. Follow the recipe link, above, to make these treats.

Let the wedding cake take center stage with peach colored frosting, decked out with orange roses and greenery. There’s no need for frosting with elaborate piping. We love this cake’s monochromatic colors and simple textures for a fresh look.

Navy Dress
This Boho style dress is just the right mixture of romance and comfort. Have your party guests come dressed in navy blues and the bride-to-be in either white or a citrus color. It’ll provide some creative photos and get guests excited about the party theme.

When thinking about table decor and floral arrangements, don’t just think flowers. Adding citrus fruit, like lemons, adds a beautiful yellow color and texture to your bridal shower garland. The best way to save on flowers is to repurpose them. Take the garland from the entry door and lay it across a table for its centerpiece.

Mason Jars
Use painted mason jars to hold all of the flowers, utensils and straws. Paint them with spray paint in orange colors and metallics. It’s a clever way to dress up containers as part of the decor for your festive bridal shower party.

Tassel Garland
String paper garland across the bride-to-be’s chair, across food tables, or for an outdoor shower, up above with the bistro lights. They’ll add color and lots of party flair to your celebration.

Give Champagne a citrus-theme makeover and make Bellinis. Or, set up a make-your-own Champagne drink station and put out different fruits and juices for guests to create their own drink. It’s a fun way to get your bridal shower guests mingling!

From delicious orange-infused cookies to eye-catching arrangements with lemons and orange roses, a citrus-inspired bridal shower has so many decor options. Spoil the bride-to-be with special Bellini drinks and details that she’ll remember. Find the style that she’ll love and decorate it with a special twist for the perfect day. If she loves vibrant colors for spring and summer, give this blue and orange theme a try.

Pink Restaurant Wedding in NYC

Today, we are so excited to share this pretty pink wedding. It’s modern and charming, and has all of the right details.

Melanie and Jarrett held their wedding at a chic, New York City restaurant. Their beautiful ceremony was held outdoors, and surrounded by loved ones. Once the party was ready to start, they moved all of the guests inside, for some delicious food and dancing. Melanie’s stunning wedding dress is a real show stopper!The embellishments along her waistline, match the edges of her wedding veil.

We adore the thoughtful details that went into this restaurant wedding; from the soft pink wedding bouquet, matching floral wedding invitations, and array of family pictures scattered across the reception. It’s simple gestures like these, that make a wedding feel extra special. Remember to add unique pieces of you and your partner into your wedding day!

Dazzling Outdoor Wedding With Cultural Flair

Today we are bringing to you some outdoor wedding inspiration with a little flair!

This venue among the vineyards, offers a grand estate with rustic views and a backdrop that made for the perfect setting for Tracy and Meng’s “I do’s.” We are loving the bright pink color palette of this big day. You can find the hue on the bridesmaids, incorporated in the florals and on the wedding cake as well that just sparkles.

The couple honored their heritage with a traditional flair including a tea ceremony and lion dance. If you’re in need of some outdoor wedding inspiration and ideas for making your big day true to you, then you’re definitely in the right place.
