When I got married back in October of 2008 (omg that seems so long ago!) – the vintage trend was not even close to as “in” as it is now. Although I find a lot of today’s trends truly stunning and gush over etsy.com, I can honestly say that I wouldn’t have changed a single thing about my wedding. BUT with that being said, I still love playing around with ideas on sites like WeddingWire and StyleMePretty. Here’ s an iboard using the colors I used, but in a more vintage/shabby chic theme:
The second 2011 Color Combination makes me want sorbet! Use this delicious palette of colors for a beautiful backyard ceremony or a swanky foreign affair.

You think you know exactly what you want your wedding to look like, but you’re having a hard time getting everyone else on board with your vision. Have you ever thought of creating a mood board? Sometimes words just aren’t as helpful as a visual that shows color and style, and importantly, evokes a particular feeling from within. We created one for our own wedding and were really happy with the results!
What is a mood board?
A mood board (some call it an Inspiration Board) is a way to visually represent how you want something to look and feel without putting it into words. The idea is actually a rip-off from the advertising world that often uses this process when they’re working on a new campaign; it helps you work through big picture brainstorming, and then focus your final idea.
How it works:
Creating the mood board can be a fun exercise that you do with your partner to “kick-off” the planning process. It can help you figure out exactly what you want your day to look and feel like, set the tone for how you want to work together as a team and make communicating your ideas to vendors much easier.
You can design your personalized inspiration board on several of the online wedding websites. Most websites have over 11,000 images for you to choose from Real Weddings. An inspiration board is a great starting point for you to create your vision. You’ll be able to determine your color palette as well as the theme and style of your wedding.
One of our favorite harbingers of Spring is when the trees suddenly sport their bitty, bright, lime green buds. Nearly yellow green soon gives way to ever deepening shades of kelly, shamrock, and moss. As you may have guessed, with a business named The Green Kangaroo, we can wax poetic about shades of green for days! And weddings that incorporate green, whether with the barest hints of color or in bold pops of brightness, embrace the season’s freshness in an impactful, visual way.
