Used sparingly, a repeated shape is a clever way to unite your wedding details. A heart shape may be the most obvious wedding motif, but it can also easily be the cheesiest. So we challenged ourselves to find fresh, stylish ways to feature hearts in your wedding décor. We're now officially declaring hearts cool again.
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.
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.
This luscious color palette reminds us of summer's many culinary delights: sliced peaches, pink grapefruit sorbet, and sipping pink lemonade on a warm evening (preferably on a porch swing surrounded by fireflies). From juicy frozen fruit pops to cotton candy-colored bridesmaid dresses, here are some ways to use these sweet summer colors throughout your wedding.

Every season, fashion designers are met with the challenge of creating cohesive collections that convey a unique mood—not unlike what's required to establish a wedding style that works. So we decided to borrow from the palettes, fabrics, and narratives of some standout shows to create four distinct weddings.
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.
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.
