Inspiration Fridays – Orange and Purple

A great way to add a little flare to your fall wedding is to mix oranges and purples! You can choose muted tones mixed with ivory for an elegant look, or go bold with bright oranges and purples. Especially this year, when Halloween falls on the last Saturday of the month, orange and purple can help you make a gorgeous statement at your October wedding!

Etsy Wedding Team Inspiration Fridays – Picnic in the Park

One of the benefits of having your big day when the weather is warm and sunny is to incorporate the outdoors into your wedding! Whether it’s a scenic ceremony overlooking the lake or a reception under a big tent camped out in the park, having a more non-traditional setting is definitely becoming a trend. This Friday we are looking at two distinct ways of bringing the Picnic in the Park theme to your inspiration table.

The first way is to really embrace the picnic theme, with bold checkers and stripes in red, white and blue. Nothing says picnic quite like a red and white blanket, and using these elements with your outdoor reception or cocktail hour will really make guests feel like they are lounging in the sun under a tree with a sweet tea.

The second way is more subtle, but still brings that laid back picnic feel to your wedding. Using floral elements, while still sticking with a bolder color palette like reds, yellows, blues and purples, can add a non-traditional feel without inviting all the ants to your picnic!

Hoping you are feeling inspired!
