Quick Palete: Green and Gray

Still one of my favorite palettes, I am not sure I will ever get sick of green (or hydrangeas for that matter)! Depending on the shades you utilize it can be preppy, simple, classic, or basically whatever you make it. I actually took this picture myself...those beautiful blooms are currently hanging out in our kitchen!

Paper Garlands

These paper garlands from Kristina Marie's Etsy shop are too pretty for words! They are available in just about any color combination you can imagine and she even takes custom orders. Some of them are made of old hymnals, which would be a lovely touch to a church wedding. Her designs were just featured in Martha Stewart Weddings - check out this picture to get and idea of how you can string the garland across your ceremony chairs! {Found via Creature Comforts}

Sponsor Spotlight: Project Wedding

You all know I love Project Wedding for all of their inspirational ideas, but did you know they also have a Real Wedding archive? There are some seriously lovely weddings in the gallery, including Phoebe and Jacob's romantic Real Wedding in Winters, CA that you see pictured here. The lush pink florals and outdoor venue made for a gorgeous event (and check out that cake)!

Project Wedding is also a great resource for creative wedding ideas. You can find unique projects and step-by-step instructions for making favors, floral arrangements, invitations, and more in their 'DIY Wedding' section. There truly is a lot to take advantage of in one place. You can also browse the latest in bridal fashion, create a free wedding website, and search for wedding resources!

Etheral Wedding Gowns

These beautiful wedding dresses from designer Maria Lucia Hohan and so lovely I can hardly stop looking at the photos! Each dress just seems more beautiful than the next, and the styling of the photos is just gorgeous. All the pictures were taken by The Cherry Blossom Girl, and you can see a lot more on her blog {found via Hello!Lucky}

Real Wedding: Atlantic City, New Jersey

Sheylea and Ryan's elegant wedding took place at a new venue in Atlantic City, One Atlantic. The event has such a "clean" feel to it, I appreciate the simplicity. The ceremony took place in front of floor to ceiling windows, and in lieu of flowers the couple opted to use glass lanterns as the focal point of the altar. And for some green elements in the center of each table, they used small bonsai trees! {All photos by Wren & Field Photography}

Quick Palette: Shades of Lavender

Despite my early aversion, I have really loved to learn subtle shades of lavender, especially when they are paired with grey. What about you? {Image by the fabulous oh joy!}

Colorful Robes and Sleepwear

I remember looking for a cute robe to wear while I was getting ready the morning of the wedding (don't forget that there will probably be some photographers in there with you!) so when the owner of Plum Pretty Sugar contacted me a few weeks ago, had to share her creations with you. Her robes, pajama shorts, pajama pants and even the jewelry pouches pictured above are all kind of whimsical without trying too hard. She even calls her store a "loungerie" which is so cute. Are you going to wear something cute while you're getting ready for your wedding? Or just go with your normal casual wear?

Real Wedding: Granville, Ohio

Meredith and Josh's wedding was perfectly preppy - a pink and green color palette, their new married monogram on the programs, a sparkler send off to end the evening. In fact, they were so committed to their color palette, they chose the reception venue (The Bryn Du Mansion) because it had rooms that were pink and green! Be sure to check out the sparkler sleeves towards the bottom, they say "Thank you for adding sparkle to our special day." Love that!
