Wedding Inspiration Board #1



Amongst all the engagement celebrating, I've been having some fun putting together my wedding inspiration boards. The first thing I usually think about when planning an event is print materials, so I've been pulling some of my favorite invitation images. What I know for sure is that I want a look that is eclectic, feminine and playful, maybe with a bit of a vintage carnival or circus theme. Funny animals (but no peacocks!) must make an appearance, and I want lots of bold color! My color palette is looking like fuschia and violet, with accents of tangerine, turquoise, chartreuse, green and black. Basically, everything you seen in the lovely Enfin, La Voila! seal image in the top left corner.
So cute, don't you think?! Lucky for me I have already hired an amazing designer, the super-talented Cheyenne Panzeter of LoveLeigh Invitations (she did my blog banner too!), so I am assured to have save-the-dates and invitations that fit my look perfectly. I can't wait to share more of my ideas as they come together, and can't wait to hear your thoughts!

(p.s. You can see a larger version of my board here!)

i think your idea of having a bit of whimsy within your wedding, keeps it fresh and fun! can't wait to see more. adding that bit of bright color is also very contemporary and adds a bit of pizzaz to old fashioned invites :)

Oh, I love this! The color combinations are fabulous. I saw a wedding that was a little bit circus-themed that was truly wonderful.
