Friendly Inspiration: Micaela

Welcome back to this week's Friendly Inspiration! This wedding takes a typical fall colour palette and turns it into a beautiful spring wedding! To see the inspiration behind this day, see it here!
Micaela's Friendly Inspiration:

The Colour Palette: This day is based on four shades: tan, cream, gold, and maroon.

The Invitations: A simple background with maroon writing will invite the guests to the wedding.

The Venue:

The Ceremony Location: The ceremony will take place at the bride's home church in the Sacramento area of California.

The Reception Location: The reception will be held outdoors at a park close to the church.

The Bride:

The Dress: In order to keep the bride's shoulders covered, she will wear this gorgeous Allure Modest lace gown.

The Accessories & Hair: The bride will accessorize her dress with diamond and pearl earrings and a simple pearl necklace. Her hair will be side-swept curls in order to show off the neckline of the dress and will be accented with a simple veil.

The Bridesmaids: The bridesmaids' shoulders will also be covered with this simple tan After Six dress. The bridesmaids, along with the bride, will hold bright maroon chrysanthemum bouquets. 

The Groom & Groomsmen: The groom and groomsmen will be in tan vests, cream shirts, and a deep maroon tie. To match the bouquets, the groomsmen will wear bright maroon boutonnieres.

The Ceremony Decor: The ceremony decor will be kept simple with petals lining the aisle and simple bouquets hanging on the pews with ribbon.

The Escort Cards: To introduce the literary feel of the reception, the guests will be guided to their seats with the use of old-school library card envelopes.

The Reception Decor: The picnic tables at the park will be decorated with tan tablecloths and hanging twinkle lights. The centrepieces will be a combination of vintage books and maroon and cream flowers.

The Guestbook: The guests can leave love notes to the couple with the help of a typewriter.

The Cake: The cake will have a simple cream background decorated with gold-detailed flowers and maroon ribbons. The cake will bring in the literary theme with a gold "Happily Ever After" topper.

The Favours: Loose tea leaves will be given to the guests in vintage book page favour bags.

  1. This was my dream wedding and I am so impressed with how Ainsley pulled it all together. I love all the little details she put in, like the library table cards, and the typewriter. I love it!!
