Fun Elopement Ideas in New York City

Today, we are having so much fun with this New York elopement! Evelien and Kevin wanted a wedding day that was stress-free, and decide to tie the knot in the Big Apple. If you’re looking for fun poses, these elopement ideas are Pinterest worthy.

These nuptials at the New York Public Library were almost a destination wedding for these two lovebirds. They traveled all the way from Belgium to say I DO! They took some elopement photography in front of the New York skyline, and the newly opened Word Trade Center. They even ventured into the new Path Train Station where they were lucky enough to get a couple of photos from. They also stopped at the Fulton Center Terminal, before it was time to get hitched at the City Clerk’s Office. Evelien and Kevin finished the day with wedding photos at Grand Central, the New York Public Library, and Bryant Park. Evelien’s blue shoes are the icing on the cake!

Flamingo Pink and Green Vintage Wedding Inspiration

Today, we are swooning over this wildly creative vintage wedding inspiration! Inspired by our flamingo wedding invitations, this team put together a fun retro wedding that pays homage to the rockin’ 1950s.

We love how perfectly the black and white decor pairs with the splashes of green and pink. The vintage clothing, lawn decor, and throw-back treats make this unique piece so much fun. Remember to plan a wedding that’s true to the two of you! This electric theme is great for a summer wedding. Allow guests to relax, and dress in attire from the 50s for this type of party! If you have a big enough space, this would be the perfect scenario for an intimate backyard wedding.

Beach and Sea-Glass Blue Inspired Wedding Theme

This “secret in a bottle” just washed-up on shore: Create an elegant beach theme with soft shades of sea-glass blue votives, tinted bottles and Zen-like floral arrangements.

The use of glass for this wedding inspiration shows up everywhere in the most unique ways. Let’s look at how you can transform tablescapes and flower arrangements into a theme that’s inspired by sea-glass blues and the beach.

Glass is a perfect decor detail because it’s so universal. Today it makes waves as votives, bottles and flower boxes.

When the sun goes down, add romantic lighting with lit candles in glass votives in shades of blues and purples. You can also bring more style to your tables with tinted bottles in various sizes.

Want to try something new? Put nature’s beauty on display by placing plants in glass boxes as your centerpieces.


Featured Wedding Invitation: Floral Unity. See our full Wedding Invitation Collection here.

This invitation design was customized with the perfect colors in mind to match a sea glass and beach inspired theme. Guests can expect day-of events ranging from dinner to dancing with the invitation’s cool graphic icons. They have so much style and fun to look forward to.

A great way to start planning is to look at inspiration, including invitation designs. Once you have your theme and design picked out, it’s time to dress up your day with the details, like glass bottles, and sea glass and seaside garden plants for your tables. Put all the lovely details together and you’ll have yourself a fine party. It’s your day; decorate to your heart’s content!

Boho Style Vintage Wedding Inspiration in the Rain

Today, we are swooning over this romantic garden wedding. If you’re forecasting rain on your wedding day, have no fear! This dreamy vintage wedding inspiration will show you how to look stunning even during moody weather.

From the classic gold wedding rings, softly flowing wedding dress, and custom peach bourbon cocktail, we are smitten with this rustic outdoor wedding. Most people wouldn’t think to have their wedding in a nursery, but this expansive backyard is filled with an array of perennials, herbs, and native Georgia plants. What could be more romantic than a garden wedding in the South?

This Wedding Paper Divas invitation suite helps complete their vintage wedding theme. With just a few rustic touches, the theme really comes alive. No matter what type of wedding the two of you are planning on, just make sure that it’s true to the two of you!

Pink and Yellow Rustic Barn Wedding by a Lake

Today, we are soaking in all of the amazing rustic details from this cozy barn wedding in Lake City. This serene, privately owned property is nestled within an expansive forest. Surrounded by endless aged oak and pine trees, this old barn is the perfect venue for any couple seeking some peace and quiet along the countryside.

Brianna and Kyle recently tied the knot at Southern Pines, in Florida! These two had such wonderful wedding details- from their pink and yellow bouquets filled with Baby’s Breath, rustic reception centerpieces, and fun wall art with love quotes. Brianna and Kyle’s chic country-inspired sweetheart table is swoon worthy, and something you should save to your Pinterest boards if you’re also wanting this type of wedding theme.

We especially love their custom pink wedding invitations, which set the tone for their big day! The fun, lighthearted invitation design matches their laid-back style perfectly.

Yellow and Gray Wedding Theme Ideas

Gray—It’s classic, it’s timeless. You really can’t go wrong with this color, but when you add hints of lemon yellow, now that’s a party!

A yellow and gray wedding theme makes a gray suit want to dance and a cake dressed with flowers turn heads. Let’s get this party started and see how a yellow and gray wedding theme will have you smiling from ear to ear.

Neutral tones of gray and white tablecloths, dinnerware and vases do a perfect job setting a background for pops of yellow. Add yellow table numbers and bouquets to create eye-catching tablescapes. For the cake, add yellow flowers. We love how this theme hints at lace by adding lace to table numbers, the frosting cake design and the design for the wedding invitation.

For a little more fun, brighten up your groomsmen with yellow vests and striped ties. Not only will it match your color theme, but give a fun look to your wedding party photos.

Get your shimmer on with this wedding invitation. This design is printed on Shimmer paper for a lustrous look and goes perfectly with a gray and yellow theme, as well as the lacy day-of details.

As you take the time to plan your wedding, remember the little details can add a lot to your big day without the hard work. All it takes is choosing the right colors for your groomsmen’s suits, flowers, cake and table decor. Let gray and yellow make you want to dance and celebrate the night away!
