    Summer Wedding Colors: Red, Lime Green, White

    Ripe, juicy strawberries are the definitive summer fruit. We love the idea of pairing vibrant strawberry-red with crisp lime green for a picnicky color palette that feels fresh and cheerful. Lawn games, mint-sprigged drinks, and DIY dècor add loads of lighthearted charm to the backyard wedding we've created here.

    Summer Wedding Colors: Purple, Pink, Lime

    We imagine this sophisticated color palette at a rooftop wedding with sleek white lounge furniture and sassy cocktails on offer at the Lucite bar. Stick to deep pinks (think rose, not bubblegum) and moody, wine-based purples. Bursts of bright green add just a dash of masculine energy. United by these colors, details like graphic invitations and minimalist centerpieces capture our vision of the perfect summer-in-the-city wedding.

    Wedding Style Inspiration: Cherry Blossoms

    The blooming period for cherry blossoms is brief—typically the season stretches from late March to mid-April—and that may be part of what makes them so compelling. Or it might be the delicate yet graphic nature of the flowers themselves, balanced against the strong wood branches. One thing's for sure: they make for an always-stylish wedding style motif.

    All Things Peacock

    Peacock feathers first became a popular design motif during the Art Nouveau movement, and their rich iridescent hue and delicate silhouette continue to be a popular way to add a touch of exotic glamour to décor. But it can be all too easy to veer into tacky territory when using these multicolored feathers as a point of wedding style inspiration. So keep it classy: just a handful of peacock details should do the trick.
