{Inspired Style} Backyard Bonanza

As you know, I had talked about doing a backyard wedding for a long time. It was something that always remained in the back of my head. I love the intimacy of the backyard wedding (and the price isn't bad either!) Overall, having a blank canvas to do as you wish as much as you wish is really an unbeatable scenario. These cute little backyard details transform a regular old backyard into the fun affair that is your wedding day. And a beautiful wedding day at that!

Our Colors

We have been engaged for just short of two months now. With the extreme wedding obsession I am known for having, it would make sense that my wedding would be fully planned, and at one point I thought it was. But after the actual engagement occurred, my head seemed to start spinning with hundreds of ideas, and I couldn't focus it anymore! Here is my first inspiration board of my the wedding. I am sure there will be tons more to follow as I change my plans and add on more ideas and colors.

White Ivory Fuchsia Orange Purple Yellow Gray Zebra print (brown and ivory, not black and white)

Those are the colors of our wedding. I know it is a bit of a mish-mash and I know it might sound a bit crazy, but I definitely know what I am thinking for this one.

Here is my little plan. I love white and I want to incorporate that as much as possible! I want small accents of spring colors for the flowers, paper details, and favors. The dresses will probably be gray. The last thing I want to add is a very small amount of zebra print, maybe on chair cushions, runners, or throw pillows.

I plan to create a "pop" effect with the wedding colors and focus on the small details to bring the whole thing together without overwhelming the space with too much color.

What do you think about the color scheme and ideas so far?? I want to see other brides inspiration boards, so feel free to e-mail them to me. :)
