Friendly Inspiration: Nicole

This post is coming to you a day late, meaning that today will be a two-post day!
If you missed the inspiration behind this modern fairytale, see the inspiration here.
Nicole's Friendly Inspiration:

The Colour Scheme: This fairytale wedding will focus on pastel purples with hints of nudes and sage.

The Invitations: The purple will first be introduced with the invitations, featuring a geometric, modern envelope pattern.

The Venue: Both the ceremony and reception will take place in the main floor of the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria. This atrium location features towering glass windows, skylights, two overlooking balconies. The cocktail hour will take place outside the museum, in the beautiful gardens.

The Bride:

The Dress: Nicole will wear this flowy Watters gown, with a unique sweetheart neckline, geometric straps, and a-line skirt. 

The Accessories: Nicole will wear her hair down in waves that frame her face. To accessorize, she'll carry a sage, purple, and white bouquet and wear simple diamond and pearl earrings and a detailed diamond bracelet.

The Bridesmaids: Nicole's ladies will wear lavender dresses with a detailed bodice and will carry a smaller version of the bride's bouquet. 

The Groom & Groomsmen: The men will wear dark charcoal suits, complete with lavender ties and lavender and sage boutonnieres. 

The Ceremony: To accent the beautiful glass windows of the venue, the backdrop will consist of sheer drapery, decorated with hanging roses and crystals. To add to this fairytale backdrop, the aisle will be lined with flower petals and glowing candles, along with glittered hearts hanging from the aisle chairs.

The Cocktail Hour: The drinks will be served from a beautifully decorated outdoor bar and will be enjoyed on cocktail tables decorated with nude tablecloths, large cream bows, and different bottles filled with flowers. 

The Escort Cards: Hanging from greenery will be the guests' escort cards, held with gemstone clips

The Reception: There will be circular and rectangular tables at the reception, both of which will be covered with nude tablecloths and overlays: the circular tables will have nude overlays, while the rectangular tables will have cream overlays. The centrepieces will consist of lavender, sage, and white flowers, along with tall candle votives and roses sitting atop tall candlesticks. The table will be completed with mirrored table numbers and white china plates with light lilac napkins.

The Cake: A three-tiered white cake will be served to the guests, decorated with a gold chevron second tier, colourful florals, and a glittered "Best Day Ever" topper. 

The Guestbook and Favours: Nicole wished to give her guests photobooth photos as a way of thanking them for attending, as well as giving them a memory from the night. I decided that the bride and groom should also get to see those memories, so the photobooth photos will also be used in the couple's guestbook.

Next week, a woodsy winery wedding.
