We decided to get married in May because here in Charlotte it is not too hot or humid yet and it is one of my favorite times of year!
I have always LOVED periwinkle hydrangeas and knew that I wanted to use them as inspiration for our color scheme. I have thought about incorporating blue and white Chinese vases and ginger jars in my centerpieces. My G2B decided that he and his groomsmen will be wearing tan suits. They will be wearing white shirts underneath, and have periwinkle ties. I heart this succulent boutonniere. They would look dashing with the tan suits, and have always liked succulents as well. I love these J.Crew bridesmaids dresses, they are the perfect color and I love bow detail. However, my bridesmaid/ sister has decided that she would prefer a long dress. So we will have to see who wins this debate!! I love these flowery shoes, I might just have to make them mine! They are the perfect shoe for any bride. I really like the idea of an all white cake with real flowers on it instead of buying a fancy cake topper. We are super pumped about our venue, it is on the top floor of a building in uptown Charlotte, it has floor to ceiling windows which overlook the skyline. Our space is truly a blank canvas, my G2B will have plenty of opportunity to inject bursts of color into the decor. Anyone who has met me, my sister or my mother would certainly say that we are no stranger to color!
p.s. I used this site to make this inspiration board and it was super easy!
