Mint Green Wedding Inspiration

Another inspiration board for you this afternoon! This time it’s the lovely pastel shade mint green. It’s clean, fresh and contemporary whilst also being carefree and fun.

At my imaginary mint green wedding, to match the carefree colour vibe, I’d go all out sixties in style. I  would be arriving in a cute VW Beetle like Polly Pootles (who isn’t mint green but so cute and I really would’ve booked for my own wedding had we needed transport). I’d dress my maids up in  mint green shift dresses and I’d wear a short wiggle dress whilst wearing mint green wedding shoes. The table displays would have mint green tablecloths and gold cutlery (I’m obsessed with having a little bit of gold included) whilst balancing it out with displays of white hydrangeas in gold pots.  I’ve kept this board relatively simple but I’ve discovered that flashes of pink go really well with mint green, so you could add pink peonies or ranunculus to your flower displays to add an extra pop of colour!

Peach & Gold Wedding Inspiration

I’ve gone Pinterest and Google images mad to bring you this peach and gold inspiration board today! I’ve had a thing for peach and gold for a while now, I like the fact it’s soft but also a bit glam at the same time. I also think you could easily have the colour palette fit into a wedding of any season, not just summer (which is pretty useful as I have been freezing the past couple of days, I think we need to wave goodbye to flip-flops and sun-tans). I’ve included some of my favourite roses, on the board  ‘Juliet’ by David Austin, and I love the peach and gold nails, an idea for your bridesmaids perhaps?  Enjoy!

If you fancy looking at some more inspiration boards, I’m over on Pinterest,  I spent far too much time on there yesterday creating a lovely little mint green board!

Oh, and have you had a chance to look at my previous posts? There’s some stunning vintage inspired lingerie and a couple of unusual wedding films to swoon over!

What to wear as a Wedding Guest.

I’m at the age now in which everyone is getting married and those invites are coming through the letter box thick and fast (well, not exactly, but there’s been more than usual). However,  my poor wardrobe isn’t keeping up and I need to sort it out.  So, with my cousin’s wedding rapidly approaching, I’ve been on the hunt for some lovely wedding staples for my ever-needy wardrobe.

I love this red belted shift dress from Reiss, and I think it would look great for a city wedding. Pair with nude heels, a clutch, some red lippie, sophisicated accessories and off you go.

For a do by the seaside, try a subtly themed outfit with this cute stripy dress. Again, pair with the nude heels (they go with everything, I must invest in a pair), beachy waves in your hair and pin a quirky vintage brooch to your dress or jacket, the one below reminds me of a seashell, but I’ve also seen loads of vintage art deco seahorse brooches which are beautiful!

A rustic, country affair suits the ‘floral’ look and this dress by Whistles fits the bill perfectly. I’ve picked out the coral-pink accent and chosen the accessories to match with this coral clutch and patent heels.  I’ve got a thing about bees, so I’m in love with this gold Bumblebee brooch, plus it works well with the floral/country design.   N.B If you haven’t heard already, bees are in great danger of becoming extinct and without them, we are in trouble. Neals Yard Remedies recently launched their ‘Bee Lovely’ campaign in order to help save the bees.  Click here for some useful info on the subject.

If you’re lucky enough to be invited to a black tie wedding, don’t be shy! The Bride and Groom will be looking forward to seeing their guests dressed to the nines! I’ve opted for a chic nude & champagne palette for this look whilst also including this season’s ‘top knot’ hair style. I would love to be able to do this with my hair but it’s too fine!

Trawling the internet and looking at these images has made me really want to go shopping (oh dear) I hope this has given you a little inspiration for any upcoming weddings you’re attending!
