Wedding Wednesday: 6 Months!

Yay! Happy 25th post-iversary / 6 month blog-iversary for Wedding Wednesday!!! Last week Rebecca of Tastefully Entertaining and I announced we would be hosting an online party and we want all of you to participate! Here is my inspiration board for this week's theme - a festive wedding featuring shades of blue.

Navy, turquoise Blue Wedding Inspiration Board

Row 1
- I love the sash on this smiling bride [via perfectbound]
- We started with this Vera Wang invitation which inspired us with it's blue hues and lacy liner
- The look and texture of these tissue paper poms are sure to lend a whimsical air to your event
- J Crew always has the best dresses for the bridal party [via junebug]
- delphiniums make an elegant floral for the tabletop

Row 2
- The low lighting of this gaslight wedding from tiffany cannis creates an intimate atmosphere
- Put on your blue suede peep toe shoes and dance the blues away
- Sip a Blueprint Martini in honor of the event (and the late, great publication)
- A handmade lace bowl would be a lovely alternative to the gift card box
- Oh, I suppose I am a little partial to this envelope seating card arrangement

Row 3
- Spotted on bellavita, this white dress with blue overlay is calling my name
- The delicate designs on this lacework cake reminded me of the doily-like motif on the envelope
- I think this handmade ring bearer pillow is too perfect
- Noisemakers are a fun alternative to confetti when sending off the happy couple

Row 4
- A pretty bouquet group from tiffany cannis
- It's not a precious stone, but I still like this silver and rose gold inlaid ring
- A monogrammed guest book adds a personal touch to the reception
- whichgoose makes incredibly beautiful and romantic headbands like the one shown

Here is a taste of Rebecca's inspiration board. Her dramatic navy inspiration board is just breathtaking!
