Wedding Inspiration: Yellow

an you think of a more cheerful color than yellow? Granted this particular shade is a bit muddy... I was thinking of a late summer color when I put these images together. Kind of like this pretty ipod wallpaper I have:

Save the Date Cards and Invitations:
1 - 
The Knot

The Admission Ticket invitations are a fun idea! I have seen some really fun takes on them. The graphic print of the yellow poppy is great, too.

Beautiful Favors:

Ok, so #4 is more of a table setting than a favor... and I think it's a cute idea! There is a site where you can make a personalized crossword puzzle. How perfect and playful! It could also be a very budget friendly favor - pretty pencils can be reasonable!

Table Settings:

These images make me want to make another batch of Ginger Lemonade. The tent is so pretty and fun! I'm a sucker for paper lanterns, too.


Of course I managed to find orchids again. Love the bicycle bouquet! I want to go ride a beach cruiser down to the park and lay in the grass with a good book.

Dresses, Hair & Guys:
4 - The Knot 

Ok, these are a little cleaner yellow. The wispy feathery hair thingy is just lovely! I think I want one. I could rock that with a french twist, n'est pas?

Let Them Eat Cupcake:

I was able to find some really darling cupcake images! I love the yellow hearts with the monogram. The sunflowers are great... and that's a ton of icing. Maybe a fondant sunflower would be a nice option... and most of the guests wouldn't go into a sugar coma after eating it.

Wow, I am floored by the gorgeousness. Love, love, love the color combo!
Today I'll be working on another color combo inspiration post... Between loads of laundry and a well-deserved pedicure (just keeping it real, peeps). J & I already completed our morning run - yay! Just under 9 miles.

Wedding Inspiration: Pretty Greens!

Weddings are wonderful. Yes, it is a ton of work putting it all together... Oh, but the pretties!!
Wedding blogs are fabulous. Thank you so much, Ann, for introducing me to 100 Layer Cake!!
This post captures some wonderful images from a real wedding where green was the accent color. Gorgeous!!

Some additional inspiration I found:

Save the Date Cards and Invitations:

I wish I had known about Etsy when J & I got married. I couldn't find invitations that I liked so I made mine. I put my limited PhotoShop skills to the test!!

Beautiful Favors:

Hmm... I wonder what budget-friendly party favors I can whip up for this Sunday's party??

Table Settings:

Both of these seem like easy DIY projects!! That I'm sure SOMEONE would be happy to put together. #1 is layered ribbon and #2 is a fun gift wrap. Maybe not all of Martha's craft projects are migraine-inducing OCD nightmares? :-)


Yeah, my preference for orchids isn't obvious based on these selections...

Dresses & Guys:

Obviously there are a ZILLION options for wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses. These are just a couple options that seemed to fit the color scheme nicely.

Cake (well, cupcakes - because "non-traditional" is the idea):

Since Carrot Cake Cupcakes (care of Yours Truly) are the running favorite at the moment, I'm partial to the 3rd cupcake image. Even the stone is edible!! It's some kind of fancified (my word) sugar. Mad skillz - I would be ordering those!

Oh, and just putting the images together for this post... I have a newfound appreciation for all of the hard work that my favorite bloggers do to put together their wonderful posts. Please, please, please keep it up! I promise I'll get better about commenting regularly!!

A Wedding Project...

So I thought this blog was going to be a place for me to collect pretty home inspiration images and project ideas, as well as document the projects I actually complete.
Well... sure, maybe. I'll get to that... later?

Since then, a friend has gotten engaged. I'm SO VERY EXCITED (sorry to yell... I'm just that happy for her)... And I've been itching to plan a party. So I'm going to put together some mood boards and maybe that will show that wedding planning can be *fun* too!

In the next month or so, I also get to plan a book release party for a friend - yay! And I'm planning to actually put some plants in the ground for my herb garden project... So once I get the herb garden planted I'll be throwing a party. Maybe an engagement party??

So... look for a couple of mood board wedding inspiration posts...
