Elegant Light Aqua Blue and Gold Wedding Colors

After my sweet friend Jennifer, a fabulous calligrapher, posted jewel inspired wedding cakes from Martha Stewart Weddings … I was inspired.

The light aqua blue and gold caught my eye! Regal, modern and elegant!!!

So, I whipped up a monogramed invitation with a hand drawn crown. Found the best pair of gold shoes and the most beautiful gold floral wedding bouquet I could find. And the dress. Isn’t it just amazing?

Enjoy this beautiful inspiration for your spring or summer wedding! oxox

The fabulous shoes are from Kate Spade. Cake, bouquet, aisle from Martha Stewart Weddings. Bridesmaid dress from Alvina Valenta Bridesmaid Dress Style AV9044.

Pale Pink + Black Anemone Themed Wedding

Pink and black are proving to be a popular color choice by our blog readers. So I just had to update, share and build this Anemone Flower Inspiration board. Paired with ivory this blush pink and black color palette is perfect for your spring, summer, fall or winter wedding I think!

Kristen wanted a custom invitation for her wedding featuring Anemone flowers. This flower is ADORABLE. Anemone means “WIND” in Greek. And is known as the “WIND FLOWER” as they thought the wind caused it to bloom. Soooo Sweet. Don’t you think?

Kristen’s custom invitations with anemone flowers is elegant, simple and vintage. Light tan metallic coverstock, layered w/ black coverstock and thick white coverstock. Kristen upgraded to raised ink and had me hand paint each anemone flower in pale pink / blush watercolor! So soft and inviting!

I have been designing wedding invitations for 12 years. I normally illustrate VERY large blooms. I must say this simple flower stole my heart. xo

Sunflower Wedding Ideas

I love an outdoor wedding! Sunflowers just add the perfect, cheerful touch. Just look at the bright golden yellow sunflowers, they make me smile!

Stephanie wrote: “Michelle – just found this site, it’s gorgeous! I’m getting married in September of this year (I know, very short engagement = stressful wedding planning!) Dying to have sunflowers, thinking about pairing it with coral. Any thoughts / better recommendations? I’m a little averse to blue bridesmaids dresses… nothing personal! Thanks so much :)”

Thank you for your kind words Stephanie! I whipped this inspiration board up a while ago. I thought of it immediately when you mentioned sunflowers and coral! Notice the light splash of lilac/purples with this color scheme! Gorgeous. Best wishes and good luck!
