I might be thinking ahead to the balmy days hour of British Summertime that we have to look forward to, but I know that you soon-to-be-wed ladies will be planning ahead.  This afternoon our regular guest blogger Katy of What Katy Did Next helps bride Sarah, who was looking for some marvellously muted wedding inspiration for her Winter 2013 – 2014 celebration. 

.

Katy says:  You might think – pinecones and fur wraps on the brink of Spring? But this week’s inspiration was was requested by a bride wanting some help with her vintage theme for a Winter wedding with sage green and blush pink. The colour palette is so gorgeous I’ve managed to keep elements of the board useable all year round, as well as help out bride Sarah with wintery touches.

.
Due to the soft colours Sarah has chosen, I have used light and airy vintage styles with the lace gown, floaty feathers and delicate sparkles – this isn’t to say that you couldn’t go all out twenties vintage with floaty chiffon flapper style bridesmaids, smoky eyes and pin curled hair!

.
The bridesmaids, dresses in this board are from Monsoon. The silk chiffon ‘Diana’ dress is available in two lengths and if your maids would rather not go for a strapless design why not find a dressmaker who can add flattering straps or beaded cap sleeves? Have your bridesmaids carry a decorative clutch down the aisle in place of a bouquet – it’s practical, pretty and makes a lovely gift for your girls.

.
Winter is already a dark enough season so why not use metallics and light colours in your decor to reflect what light there is? The wonderful table setting features golden vases and candles which will create a warm cosy feeling for you and your guests. As a cheaper alternative to flowers you could use pinecones and leafy sage foliage in your centrepieces as well as the cute place card holder idea. Or with it being a wintery affair, why not use baubles in blush pink and sage colours, placed in glass bowls/vases? If pinecones aren’t your thing – delicate tissue paper crackers in your colour scheme can double as a place card and favour box.

.
I hope you fall for this board and it’s colour palette like I did – the floral imagery is absolutely gorgeous! Keep your requests coming in to Julia and me – I’d love to help you out!

Remember: the plan is to share a new inspiration board in this time slot every other week, either compiled by myself, regular guest blogger Katy or YOU: get in touch with your own ideas and inspiration boards! We’ll be discussing our inspirations behind the images too so it’s simply going to be a whole load of lovely.

.

If you are a little less arty but in need of inspiration and still want to play along, we will also be taking requests for colour schemes and themes and making bespoke boards for my readers. Please contact me to suggest a theme or colour scheme.
