It turns out that I am incapable of making an inspiration board without using coral. Not sure what the deal is, but I guess I am just so smitten with this color that I can’t fathom creating a color palette without it…

So, today we have another lovely and BRIGHT color palette to add to the coral collection. Last week I shared this coral + navy palette, and this week’s features another shade of blue–turquoise!

These colors are SO cheery. I can’t see how looking at these photos wouldn’t instantly brighten your day. ;)

Enjoy, friends! I am off to Seattle for the next 3 days, wahooo!

Floral Print Wedding Fashion

Posted by   Categories // Inspiration

Hello dear readers! I hope you are enjoying this beautiful spring morning wherever you may be. It feels more like summer here, and I certainly can’t complain about all this lovely weather we’ve been having. :)

I wanted to apologize for missing a couple of days last week. Last week was a crazy work week for me so unfortunately the blog had to be put on the backburner more than I would have liked. This week I am heading to Seattle for 3 days to help my mom with a big fundraising event that she’s hosting at her store, but I am going to try extra hard to have all posts pre-scheduled and ready to go!

Now, on to the floral print prettiness…I may be slightly obsessed. This is a detail I wish I saw more of! It’s the perfect way to bring in a fun, colorful, vintage-y vibe to your big day. And, few things scream “summer!” quite like floral prints do!

Floral Wedding Dress

I have seen a fair share of gorgeous floral print bridesmaid dresses (like these lovely ones)… but what about a floral print wedding gown!? I am so in love with the bride’s dress in the photo above! I don’t know that I have ever seen someone rock floral print so well.

Floral Wedding Gown

What do you think about this sassy floral print gown by Atelier Aimee Bridal Couture? If you don’t want to go all out with a floral print gown, consider a floral print hairpiece (like this one!)

Floral Bow Ties

For the groom, a floral print bow tie or neck tie would be the perfect way to tie in a floral theme. Aren’t these all just so much fun? I have (sadly) never seen Andrew in a bow tie but I keep meaning to buy one for him because I know he would look soo handsome. :)

Floral Print Heels

Another more subtle approach to rocking floral print is to dress up your feet with some pretty patterns… aren’t these gorgeous!? The ones on the right from Farfetch are seriously amazzzzing. The slingbacks on the left can be found on Shoedazzle.

Floral Bridesmaid Dress

There are so many ways to tie in floral print throughout your wedding fashion. If you are looking for some super fun & colorful prints, check out The Happy Couple, who made the bow tie above… they have lots of bow ties & ties, ring bearer pillows, banners, and more! A floral print clutch is a great way to add in a “pop” of floral if you don’t want your bridesmaids to be completely decked out. But, if you do like this look, I highly recommend this Peach Rose Dress from Ruche! So pretty!

So, have I got you hooked or what?? Isn’t floral print just the prettiest? I am hoping to see lots of these looks throughout this summer’s weddings!

What happens when you have a super crafty mom and sister-in-law? You have an incredible wedding filled with meaningful handmade details! Dave’s mom, Kathy, and sister-in-law, Erin, were happy to take on this task for Beatriz & Dave. The wedding took place in Dave’s parent’s backyard in Illinois, and everything from the signs to the photobooth to the favors were handmade.

Friends and neighbors also helped pull the whole event together by setting everything up the morning of, transporting guests in golf carts to the ceremony site, serving wine, and even keeping a positive attitude when a storm hit just an hour before the ceremony! Thankfully, the rain ceased and the sun came out just in time for the ceremony to begin (phew!).

This sweet handmade wedding, captured by Danya Jimenez Photography, is truly a labor of love for everyone involved and their efforts certainly paid off. What a lucky couple to have so many talented and helpful people in their lives!

How adorable is this “Here Comes the Bride” sign? Signs played a major role in the decor of Dave and Beatriz’s wedding… this is the first of many!

What a neat idea — listing the family & bridal party on a wooden pallet! Who knew there were so many uses for these things.

Another super cute idea– having signs with the names of the flower girls and ring bearers. A great way to honor everyone who’s a part of your big day!

Such a fun DIY photobooth that they put together. Photobooths do not need to be expensive– anyone can have one! All you need is a backdrop, some fun props, and disposable cameras.

How much fun are those mason jar goblets!?

I love the bright and cheery color scheme. And the simple centerpieces & table decor. It looks so lovely and welcoming.

Congratulations, Beatriz and Dave! I had so much fun experiencing your wedding through your photos. A big thank you to Danya Jimenez for sharing this wedding with us!

Have a great day, friends.

Somehow I ended up with a closet full of these wonderful colors! And I have to say I love it. I recently had professional photos done and I rocked coral and navy like no other… at least I like to think so. ;) I am so excited to see the photos and finally have professional portraits! I will definitely share a few when that time comes.

Anywho, if you can’t already tell I have a huge crush on this color palette and I think you should too. If you want to make a statement with your wedding colors, coral and navy are the way to go! Such a bold, bright color combo, perfect for a summer wedding. This palette also goes great with just about any pattern you can imagine… as you can see below! Chevron, polka dots, floral designs, stripes, you name it.

I can’t get over these colors. I LOVE them. They just make me happy inside. :)

Enjoy your Wednesday, loves!
