Colorful Paper Based Wedding

I’m beginning to think I may be addicted to Pinterest.

Ok, I’m lying: I AM addicted to Pinterest.

There is just so much amazing inspiration on there; I doubt I’ll ever be able to see it all! If you enjoy pinning party and wedding inspiration as much as I do, you should come follow my boards.

This week’s wedding inspiration board was put into motion by this colorful paper based wedding arch I spotted on Pinterest. I love the use of untraditional materials and themes in weddings, don’t you?

Paper is one of those elements that can be super cheap to use, but unbelievably sensitive and time consuming to make look picture perfect.

That being said, it is SO easy to incorporate any color combination you want for a wedding or party. This week: I took on more of a colorful palette then I’d normally go with. I think it works, what do you think?

May the Fourth {Black and White} Star Wars Wedding – Inspiration and Ideas

Happy *ALMOST* May the Fourth!

For those of you who have NO CLUE what I’m talking about, May fourth, also known as May the Fourth, is International Star Wars Day. And if you hadn’t guessed already it’s a play on the quote “May the force be with you”.

I’m a bit of a fan girl myself, so I couldn’t let an opportunity like this pass by. I love alternative and geek weddings, so I knew I had to make one HECK of an inspiration board for this holiday.

I decided to do a play on the colors of Star Wars, the notably black, white and yellow, and turn it into a wedding for the modern fan couple. While there are lots of Star Wars details and elements involved, there are still lots of traditional elements of a wedding, like a cake, floral, etc. that have had a bit of a geeky-god-mother-twist on them.

For example, take a look at the gorgeous wedding ceremony spot I found. It completely looks like Padme Amidala could walk by any moment to head over to the lake. I love the black floral details in it, don’t you?

Let’s take a look at the inspiration in more detail:
