Today I’m inspired by…weddings. We just went to an outdoor garden wedding on Friday night and it was simple and lovely. So, naturally,  I went to The Knot to find some more inspiring wedding-ish colors and ideas. I couldn’t believe all of the great photos they had on their website. Amazing! Here is just a few different things that caught my eye.

First, you’d need invitations. These yellow and gray invites are by Kenzie Kate . Inspiration point: How could you not love the yellow/gray/white combination? It’s super trendy!

And some wedding programs…these are from Paper-Girl. Inspiration point: use as a template for a mini-book.

Beautiful flowers next…by Wedding Flowers by Lisa. Inspiration point: LOVE the bright green and coral combination!

I love this next bouquet by Gloriosa Designs. Inspiration point: the colors are fabulous and it inspires me to do sort of a shabby-chic style layout.

Hydrangeas, sedum, roses, etc.

This bouquet by Petal’s Edge Floral Design is so happy! Inspiration point: these are my “happy colors” the pink, green, and blue from the dress. I will have to finish my mini album on my happy colors soon!

Roses, dahlias, cymbidium orchids

These flowers are by Old Glory Ranch. Inspiration point: I love the yellow, green and teal with an unexpected bits of cranberry color.

Reception decorations…the centerpieces and ideas on The Knot are very inspiring. Here is a couple that were definitely not your run-of-the-mill ideas.

This centerpiece was featured at a wedding that was in a coastal city. Inspiration point: I love the colors in this photo and I think the pincushion protea could inspire a cute paper-pieced flower.

These Origami paper cranes were made by family and friends  of the couple. Tradition says they should have 1,000 paper cranes but their family made a few more than that. Could you imagine 1,000 paper cranes hanging like this? Awesome. Inspiration point: I love the mix of patterned paper they used and here is a YouTube video on how to make a paper crane: How to Make an Origami Peace Crane.

And who could forget the cake?

I liked the lines on this cake by Michelle’s Patisserie- simple and unique. Inspiration point: the stripes would make a great border on a page and I like the pale colors with the chocolate brown.

This cake is by Custom Cakes. Inspiration point: The thick stripes with the flowers inspires me to create a border. I also like the combination of navy, white, lime and pink.

Mmm! I might have to check out the dresses next time!
