Wedding Planning Tips: Plan by Color {The Series}

plan with color
________________________________________________________________________

Time for some serious shop talk ladies! To successfully pull together a gorgeous wedding design you need to blend together two equally important design elements, a theme (i.e. vintage or woodland) and a color scheme. No matter which angle you begin the planning process from, you’ll inevitably have to work through incorporating both into the various details of your wedding day. Because we’ve got you covered from a theme perspective with our A Girl and Her Table series, we’ve decided to expand on our Inspired by Color color stories by introducing our latest series, Plan by Color. In this new mood board series we’ll feature top ways to creatively incorporate a given shade or palette into a wedding day design. To kick things off we’re showcasing one of the current hottest trending wedding colors, one of the prettiest pastels around, Mint Green. Happy Planning!

Taking cue from all the great feedback we’ve received on the Bridal Style approach to this year’s issue of Weddingstar magazine, we’ve decided to use our blog to expand on and explore the styles in all their pretty details. We’ll be breaking it all down to somewhat of a science, showing how personal style translates into a wedding design, in hopes that it’ll spark inspiration for all the brides who have yet to define their wedding style.

We’re calling the series A Girl & Her Table and because we’re in the depths of a long cold winter and in need of a serious pick me up, we’re starting the series with a punch of color and a dose of sunshine. With the Beach Boys playing in the background, and Twizzlers scattered across our inspiration boards, we introduce you to our…

Today I have another amazing D.I.Y tutorial to share with all of you – Whimsical D.I.Y Twine Wrapped Letters!
