Inspiration for your road to the altar

Happy Monday, friends! Even though the warm weather is (finally) starting to appear, I know a lot of you are in the midst of planning winter weddings. So, when I got an email from a reader asking for a little help with her après ski inspired nuptials, I thought I would share what I came up with in case it can help some of you as well!

The image in the middle was provided by the bride, and is the inspiration behind their invitations. They plan to have guests sign a pair of antique skis in lieu of a guest book but I thought it would also be fun to have some hanging above the escort card table, like the picture on the top right. The boutonniere photo is made of cinnamon sticks, so it smells as good as it looks! What do you think? Are any of you planning winter weddings?

This adorable inspiration session took place near Glacier National Park in Kalispell, Montana – the perfect setting for a small soiree in the woods. I really love the way the bright pink and teal palette stand out in the muted surroundings, and if there was every a proper place to incorporate some bird related elements this is certainly it! Of course the damask and the mason jars are fabulous, but there are so many simple elements that make this inspiration session stand out which would be easy to incorporate into your own event.

The bride’s necklace is so simple but so bold that it really makes a statement, and I love that the groom isn’t wearing a standard white shirt. The plaid looks fabulous with that gray vest and jacket! And check out that silverware, simply tied together with a small piece of ribbon…genius. Thank you to Sharon and Sara of Serendipity Events for creating the idea and pulling together all of the elements for the session, and to Alicia Brown for all the lovely photos!

Happy Friday, friends! Gia of Flights of Fancy is back for one last installment of her gorgeous inspiration boards and this one is (of course) just as beautiful as the rest!

Hello WTR readers! It’s been an absolute pleasure visiting you for the past 4 weeks and I hope you’ve enjoyed my bits of inspiration as much as I’ve enjoyed creating them!

This week over at betsywhite I worked on invitations for what I think will be a gorgeous wedding. It will be held in the gardens of a private residence and it seems as though it will be equal parts posh, pretty, warm and enchanting. I’m not sure what the bride’s plans are for the decor but I thought I would dream up my own version of her wedding :) Enjoy!
