Enchanted Birch Forest – Winter Wedding Ideas

Are you in an area that doesn’t have the traditional white Christmas landscaping that all the holiday songs sing about? I am. Having never seen snow myself, it’s hard to imagine winter wonderland weddings, but that doesn’t stop me from trying. This week I thought I would challenge myself with putting together a winter wedding inspiration board that would work not only up north, but also here in the south, all while not looking out of place.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Champagne, Metallic, and Pearl Wedding Ideas

One of the best sounds at a wedding is the sound of champagne glasses clinking. There’s always a light hearted laugh following and some sort of toasting happening in the background. Just thinking about that inspired today’s wedding inspiration board. I’ve envisioned lots of mixed metallic accents with just enough pearl decoration to bring a sense of sophistication to this wedding, without being too formal.

Here’s what I had in mind:

An Unexpected Autumn Wedding with Burnt Orange Orchids

Happy almost-Thanksgiving!

Around this time last year I shared a bunch of fall inspired dinner party ideas, (check them out here) but THIS year I seem to be covering all sorts of new ground. Last week a tropical orchid heavy fall wedding. This week…..an unexpected autumn wedding idea board awaits you.

I loved the use of orange orchids last week, so I thought why not do more with them? This week I’ve looked for more burnt orange orchids, to really hone in on this seasonal wedding idea I have. This is more of a traditional fall wedding, but still keeps that lovely orchid beauty that is so light but impactful.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Do you prefer seeing the orchids in last week’s wedding idea board that is more tropical, or this week’s more traditional autumn wedding?

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:

Pops of Polka Dots Soiree Inspiration

You know those days, where you just see something and it’s just lovely? It’s bright and cheery, and just brings a smile to your face when you see it? Maybe it’s a bunch of fresh flowers. Or maybe it’s a decadent dessert in a bakery window. There’s something special other there for everyone, custom tailored to make that person’s day.

For me, something that brings a huge smile to my face is my inspiration boards. I always love making them, and I am especially fond of the ones that instill an extra sense of happiness when looking at them, even on an unconscious level. There’s just something about this week’s idea board that sparks that in me, and I hope it has that effect on you too.

This week, I wanted to create a bright, cheery board sure to brighten up your day, and hopefully your guest’s days too. This theme can be used for a wedding or gala, a fundraiser, milestone anniversary party, or toned down to be a baby shower or luncheon color theme.

The touches of polka dots really help add the fun to this black and white inspiration board with those accents in yellow. Here’s what I had in mind:

Honeycomb Summertime Wedding Ideas

A warm summer’s afternoon, with just the slightest breeze in the air, and the sweet smell of fresh honey wafting ever so slightly towards you. That’s the atmosphere I could see this week’s inspiration board thriving in. A bit eclectic. A bit untraditional. A splash of country chic. Those are just a few of the words that come to mind when I try to describe to you what I had in mind for this week’s idea board.

In a perfect word, a rustic farmers market on the edge of the country area with a fresh field of wildflowers would be the location where this celebration would take place. I think a local garden would do just fine too!

Here’s what I had in mind:

It’s Written in the Stars – Astronomy Themed Wedding

A few weeks ago I shared a party idea board for an under the stars backyard movie night. If you missed it, check it out here.

I absolutely loved the theme of the party, and just couldn’t stop thinking about how beautiful a wedding in a science museum or planetarium would be. Something under the stars, but without the bugs and heat. That was all I needed for inspiration – the next thing I knew I had found some fabulous inspirational images and compiled them into this idea board:
