Modern Whimsical Wedding in Black, White, Gold & Pink

Black and white and gold all over, with a touch of pink – what’s not to love about this fun color palette beautifully curated by the talented Haydee of Sweetest Celebrations. An elegant black tie wedding is elevated to new heights with subtle accents in gold, and a flash of hot pink brings an unexpected whimsical flair to the event.

The Inspiration:

The modern bride is someone who takes a classic and romantic gown with a full ruffled skirt and gives it new life with a fun organza flower. Classic stripes in black and white bring a modern feel to the event, from the drinks served under a circus like tent in stripes, to the fun boutonniere worn by the groom.

Gold flatware and plating treats guests like royalty, but the striped straws keep the event casual, while adding a touch of whimsy at the same time. Pink and gold are scattered throughout the wedding in unexpected places — the tiny flags on the straws, the monogram cake topper, and some fun balloons that can be used as photo props for the guests and bridal party. 

This inspiration board is the perfect combination of the modern and whimsical. It is for the modern, hip couple that wants to have fun at their wedding, while still providing their guests with a beautifully elegant experience.

Hollywood Glamour Wedding Inspiration

Hey lovelies! It’s that time again for some gorgeous wedding inspiration from the lovely Haydee from Sweetest Celebrations. Take it away Haydee!
 
In a day and age where brides are turning to the past for wedding inspiration, it is difficult to stand out in a sea of vintage weddings, full of rustic and natural details.  Fear not, you can still channel your vintage goddess, but in a much more glamorous way.  If your wedding is not the perfect excuse for dolling up and being as glamorous as can be, when else can you indulge in decadent details that evoke glamour at every turn? I created this inspiration board for the bride who wants to feel and look like a glamour queen on her wedding day.  These images evoke a subtle Hollywood Glamour mood that is perfect for the bride who wants to be surrounded in gold and shimmery details, and be the star of her event.
 

Hollywood Glamour Wedding Inspiration

A beautiful gown is a must, but it must be sleek and chic and overflowing with beautiful details, like this perfect sheath dress covered in gold beading with the drop-dead back detail, that leaves them breathless even as you walk away.  Keep the hair chic and elegant with a perfect updo highlighted with a sparkly vintage brooch, with makeup as effortless and flawless like those in the movies.  Set the tone for your wedding with this perfect invitation in gold, and carry out the same theme to your escort cards for the guest’s seating.  The cake is simple yet decadent, with gold piping and a sweet brooch detail to accent the top tier.  Gold chandeliers at your venue allow you to focus on a clean design for your table settings, highlighted with gold and silver and a touch of blue for subtle color.  A sparkly cocktail to welcome your guests kicks off the evening and is sure to enchant all who attend.
 
I hope more brides embrace the beauty of the past in their own unique way.  Look to the past for inspiration but be sure to make your wedding unique by adding personal touches that speak to your personal style.

Black, White and Gold Wedding Colors

Inspired this week by the the glitz of Hollywood and The Oscars, I’ve put together this inspiration board combining an elegant mix of black, white and gold wedding colors. When you add the shimmer of old gold to a black and white palette you instantly elevate the look and to a wedding theme with sophisticated elegance. This combination would go beautifully with an art deco inspired event, an elegant ballroom wedding or vintage glam cocktail party. What do you think?

Champagne, Chocolates & Chandeliers Wedding Theme

I thought I’d share with you today, a wedding inspiration board I created sometime ago but never got around to posting – Champagne, Chocolates and Chandeliers.’ This style of luxurious theme for a wedding is very much the trend for this year. It’s all about romance, luxury and old world elegance, but instead of the traditional ballroom venue of days gone by we’ve taken the theme outdoors for a woodsy, garden party feel. I love the idea of a relaxed and organic outdoor setting combined with the glamour of twinkling chandeliers and shimmering fabrics. Surrounded by luxury linens, sparking crystal and vintage tableware whilst sipping on french champagne and indulging in the richness of gourmet chocolates. Tell me . . . do you love decadent elements in a wedding or do you prefer simpler details?

Seafoam and Poppy Red

Today’s inspiration board combines the coolness of seafoam green with the vibrancy of poppy red. Seafoam is beautiful fresh shade of green that has been around for decades. It works well as a neutral shade highlighted with bolder colours, but really makes a statement when combined with warm bright tones like red, coral and pink. It also beautifully complements organic and handmade wedding details. Many stylists use seafoam for beach weddings, which of course suits the beachy feel perfectly; however I do think it’s versatility for weddings goes way beyond that. Another popular choice for this combo is retro wedding themes, but in contrast I decided to go with a modern, relaxed wedding theme to show this pretty palette’s versatile style. What do you think?  Would you consider using seafoam and poppy for your wedding palette?Seafoam Red Wedding Inspiration Board

One of the first song themes I planned to feature was ‘Marry Me’ by Train. And as you will see at the end of this post, it was timely I share the board with you right now. So relax and enjoy the clip, take inspiration from the matching wedding board and read on to discover why Train’s song ‘Marry Me’ could mean more to you than just another pretty love song!

 

And here is my board inspired by the video clip:

Retro Vintage Wedding Theme

Marry Me Train Wedding Song InspirationBoard Details: Taking inspiration directly from the Marry Me music clip – which takes place in an old 50s diner – I decided to go with a retro vintage wedding theme. I used the waitresses’ blue uniform and a wonderful ‘Waitress’ movie poster as my starting point and came up with a aqua blue and white colour scheme, accented with pretty pops of pink and yellow. Retro style elements include 1950s style dresses for the bride and bridesmaids, vintage inspired pink and white posy bouquets and a vintage getaway car. Decor details include pretty fabric flag banners, a bright tablescape with retro glasses with striped straws, aqua coloured linens with pink and white striped accents and a waitress style clip-board for menu settings. Sweet retro desserts include cupcakes, popcorn, ice-cream cones, homemade apple pie and a soda fountain.
