In one of my earlier posts I designed a wedding around an inspirational bedroom from West Elm’s website. I had so much fun with that piece, that I decided to do it again – but this time based on a picture of a living room from Broyhill Furniture’s website.
In these cold, drag days of winter, I was touched by this bright and airy, almost beachy living room – a perfect starting point to turn the vision of a seaside wedding bash into a reality.
I almost died when I found this adorable bird cake topper on Etsy.com – it mirrors the painting hanging on the wall in the living room perfectly and would be lovely on top of the simple white cake with pale blue and ivory detailing. You and your groom can sip your champagne colored signature drink from these beach-inspired cocktail glasses, while guests sample hors d’oeuvres with shell-topped toothpicks. The white cymbidium orchid centerpiece beautifully compliments the vase of flowers in our living room shot, and looks peaceful against the pale blue linens. Wedding Paper Divas has such an amazing selection of customizable wedding invitations, and this ecru one provokes just the right amount of calm with its flowing blue and tan foliage. Heart-shaped bamboo fans are a nice comfort for guests if the weather is warm during your outdoor ceremony. Attaching names and table numbers to a starfish is a festive way to help them find their seats. Your bridesmaids will thank you for outfitting them in this versatile dress from JCrew that they’ll be sure to wear again, and you’ll be a vision of understated beauty in your Peter Langner trumpet skirt gown with empire waist.
