This is for all you winter brides right in the thick of it. A little slice of soft pinks, greys, metallics, and crystal gorgeousness. I wanted to change it up just a little and dive into the romance of winter. Just a little nudge of style for all those upcoming December/January nuptials. I've always thought of a winter wedding, with the possibilites of snow, ethereal styling, and touches of glamour, as being the ultimate fairy tale.
I've been noticing a lot of floral print on the fashion runways lately, and it's made it's way to the wedding runways too. I'm sure you've seen the hand painted cakes that are all the rage right now. Well I've got some other hand painted foral decor just for you. From a gorgeous vintage garden dress to a painted floral runner and to-go coffee cup favors, there are so many ways to incorporate florals into your wedding without looking dated. Once you've finished drooling over this board, be sure to head over to Maggie Austin Cake for more genius wedding cake inspiration.

I love patterns, especially stripes and polka dots for their graphic and pure quality. However, polka dots are not often done in a traditional or classic aesthetic. This week I wanted to demonstrate how polka dots can be used in an elegant way for a simply chic wedding design. Pairing pink, black, white and gold truly kept the look refined. What do you think? Ready to incorporate some dots into your wedding design? Bonus: there is a tutorial on how to make the dotted envelopes via the link below!
Today I wanted to put a twist on traditional color combo, yellow and green. By muting the usual tones to banana and mint shades, we end up with a look that is a bit retro, a little vintage, yet still a very modern via the unexpected usage, i.e. mint dishware, banana bound books, and a nontraditional bridal gown. What do you think? Any other color combo's you'd like to see twisted?
