After seeing the strikingly beautiful photo (top left), I challenged myself to come up with an inspiration board using this photo for you lovely ladies. I surprised myself how the colors gold, seafoam blue, green and orange actually came together so easily and amazingly well. These colors remind me of a casual chic lakeside wedding, blending in the colors of nature all around.
I would image it would take little decor (a budget saver) since the trees, natural flowers, and streaming water would be enough to create a breathtaking scenary for you and your guests. Although the pops of orange and green are often seen used for fall weddings, with the softer creams, golds, and blue hues, I can still picture this to be a perfect palette for a spring time, April or May wedding as well.
What do you ladies think of these colors together?

An inspiration board I whipped up really quickly right before my trip to California (which makes me guilty of not being able to give credit to anyone for the pics- please, please, please let me know if these are yours and I will update the photo credit asap!). I was asking my cousin, Katrina to be my Maid-of-Honor while I was there (she lives there) and I wanted to show her the color scheme I was shooting for. I think I might go for a champagne color for our mothers’ dresses, but I’m still having an internal battle with myself (they are the worse!) on which color I like more for a bridesmaid dress, “oasis” blue or terracotta?
So I’m not sure how I missed this site, but I came across it yesterday while surfing other wedding blogs in between vendor appointments (Yes…I’m obsessed with the internet). The Perfect Palette features nothing but color inspiration! Every color combination you can think of has already been put together nicely in the form of an inspiration board so you can visualize your favorite wedding colors better! Here’s a beach theme palette I found on her site.

So in celebration of Independence Day, here’s just a little inspiration board I created for anyone thinking of having a themed 4th of July wedding, reception dinner, or maybe just a good old fashion BBQ with friends and family! Make sure to do something fun!
