Tropical Wedding Bliss

This wedding design was inspired by the vivid colors of tropical destinations, full of colorful blooms and handmade details. It is a fun mixture of items used in Caribbean and Mexican weddings, from the ‘papel picado’ invitations to the fun ‘Novia’ (bride) sign decorated by paper flowers. Pink shoes add a touch of the unexpected, and complement the bride’s lively makeup and playful hairstyle. Guests can be greeted with tropical drinks in a rainbow of colors, and sent home with pretty boxed favors thanking them for being a part of the lovely day.
 
As summer draws to a close, it’s easy to incorporate some of these lovely details into your day, by creating a few fun items by hand and using fun color palettes that evoke the mood of summer. This inspiration board is perfect for the fun couple who wants to infuse their wedding with a touch of the tropical, or who is adventurous enough to plan a destination wedding in a beautiful tropical setting.

LWB Welcomes Sweetest Celebrations {& Parisian Chic Inspiration}!

Hi lovelies! It’s a wonderful Thursday morning and I’m excited to announce our brand new guest blogger to join the LWB family –  lovely Haydee from Sweetest Celebrations. You’ll be pleased to note Haydee is not only obsessed with all things weddings, but she also just happens to be a wedding co-ordinator (handy girl to have around I say!)  Just like us, there’s nothing she loves more than immersing herself in some serious pretty – and lucky for us she will be sharing plenty of pretty inspiration on LWB every month. So, give a warm welcome to Haydee,  and enjoy her first gorgeous feature, then be sure to pop over to her pretty website to see how she can make your special day come to life!

Lately, I’ve been inspired by Paris – the city of romance, soft ruffles and glamorous chandeliers. I picture a wedding adorned with sweet details in shades of ivory and pink, accented with touches of black here and there. This inspiration board features a Parisian Chic wedding theme, with traditional items such as vintage teacups and upholstered wing back chairs balanced with modern touches like black crystal accents and pink ruffles. A nice finishing touch would be to have chandeliers everywhere – to cast a soft mood for the ceremony and then to also liven up the table decor on a smaller scale. French macaroons create the perfect finale adding another element of French elegance to your wedding theme.  I think this style of inspiration would add a touch of romance and glamour to any wedding.

Gypsy Boho Wedding Inspiration

As the days get warmer and the nights longer, I thought I’d keep it cool and relaxed, with this modern and pretty take on a bohemian wedding theme. This gypsy boho wedding inspiration board features chic and stylish details, vintage decor and, plenty of white gorgeous blooms. A diamente headpiece and a flowing gown ramp up the romance, whilst simple elements such as milk bottle vases, timber crates and hanging flowers keep the whole atmosphere organic and homemade. I think this beautiful outdoor setting would be oh-so pretty to recreate for a real wedding. What about you?
