Purple and Orange Orchid Wedding Ideas

Is it winter yet?

Honestly, the weather we have been having here in Florida makes me second guess what my calendar has been telling me. It’s hot, humid, and generally pretty sunny out. It’s hard to imagine some of the fall idea boards I’ve been sharing the last few weeks in a tropical climate like this.

Naturally, I had to wonder what would be a tropical friendly fall wedding look like? Here’s what I had in mind:

Purple and Orange Orchid Wedding Ideas

As you can tell, lots of orange orchids with purple accents are what I went with.

Romantic Botanical Fall Wedding Ideas

A little over a year ago I shared with you an “Outdoor Fall Wedding Ideas” inspiration board post. I loved that inspiration board, as I love each board that I make, but I especially loved the polished perfection that inspiration board included. Very neat lines and shapes with perfectly coordinated colors made for beautiful inspiration.

This week I wanted to do something the along the same fall-lines, but different, with a more natural-beauty-but-still-refined, styled wedding. Still perfect for a fall wedding, this week’s wedding inspiration board has a whole other type of relaxed and cozy feel to it that I am enjoying immensely at the moment.

Here’s what I had in mind:

So, do you like last year’s inspiration board (click here to see) or this week’s better? I’m torn between them both!

Outdoor Summer Wedding in Shades of Purple

If I see another “rustic burlap” wedding tutorial I may just give up going on Pinterest.

Hahaha, that’s a lie. I’m addicted to Pinterest. I can never give that up.

But in all seriousness, the “rustic burlap” wedding trend bores me. I don’t respond positively to brown (or tan, if that’s what it is) mesh-y material just to get that country vibe.

When I think country, I think fresh produce, beautiful wild flowers, good food, and comfortable with curtains blowing in the breeze. And I think that country can be done well. Beautifully even. It could look delicate and put together, and not look hodgepodge and craft time gone wrong. That’s the inspiration for this week’s wedding idea board. A simply beautiful country wedding.

Here’s what I had for this breezy outdoor wedding:

Luxurious Dark Purple + Gold Wedding {Inspiration}

I’m mixing things up a little today and will be introducing a color palette section in today’s inspiration board. Having set colors goes a long way in insuring cohesion and clarity in wedding or party planning, and makes the design process a lot smoother. It only made sense to add one to color inspired inspiration and idea boards.

To kick off this new plan, I really wanted to share a palette that I am fond of: dark purple and gold. It is such a regal combination, and easily brings luxurious, rich qualities to any event it is incorporated into.
