I promised I’d give you three boards every day… here are today’s!
What I loved about Cassandra’s board (other than her name and the abundant use of green of course) was the fact that she took a very chic and glam room and kept it simple. She created a fresh and clean board with very classic choices, but threw some pieces in there to make it personal ~ like the Celtic ring and the whimsical umbrella lights. Have I mentioned I loved sparklers for a wedding? Well, I DO!
I’d really like to only say two things about Janet’s board and then let what she wrote me in her email speak for the rest. 1) I love that she took a very traditional contemporary room and created a completely 20′s inspired board. 2) So original!!
Here’s what she wrote: The vintage 1923 wedding dress is the pièce de résistance of the wedding. After you’ve found a dress like this the key to modernizing and pulling-off this look is all about finding the right accessories. The earrings from Anthropologie were a great period-inspired find. The understated tiara and exquisite tasseled pearl necklace pull the whole look together. I found two amazing pairs of shoes (thanks to Janie Medley over at TBC). Each is pictured next to the gown I would put them with. By pairing some over the top items (for the bride: the dress, earrings and bouquet) with more subtle items (clean crisp hairstyle, headband and shoes) the look becomes updated-vintage.
Couldn’t have said it better myself, Janet. And finally…
I don’t even know if ‘Citrus Chic’ is the right way to describe this board… maybe WOW is more appropriate? I fell in love instantly with the choices Rebecca made here. The feel reminds me of Palm Springs with the mid-century modern touches (like the invitation and the photo of the Parker… but then there’s a bit of a Mexican flair to it as well with the gorgeous church and the beach ceremony set-up. A completely successful combination of two very different looks is tough to achieve, and Rebecca did an amazing job!
