It's giveaway time! This one is a bit more of a challenge...
First, the question...as a bride or a groom, where do you find your inspiration?
See, although this is a wedding blog, this blog is ultimately about inspiration. It is about those everyday details that when brought together, create something spectacular. I find inspiration in the most mundane things...the hummingbird that sometime floats by my window, the incredible antiques that my grandfather restored, the great magazines & books that I spend way too much money on. I find inspiration in architecture and artwork, in clothing and in nature. I will be the first to admit that I find it on television, on the web, inside of stores, outside of stores, traveling and staying put. I find it everywhere.
And that is why I have created this site... I believe that design, and specifically wedding design, doesn't have to be common. I believe that a wedding can be built from odds and ends that when put together help to tell your story. I believe that each wedding should be completely unique and never redundant, and that there really is no such thing as a cookie cutter wedding. Because at the end of the day, it was yours...inspired by the colors you love, by the styles and designs that make you swoon.
And so I ask you, where do you find your inspiration? Further, how do you hope to translate that inspiration into the wedding of your dreams? Hope, being the key word here...as I know, it is so much easier said than done. For the person that comes up with the best answer, I will send a $50 gift certificate from my beloved store, Sephora. I can't wait to hear your responses! The contest will end tomorrow evening at 9PM.
And, finally, for your reading pleasure...here are some of the places that I find the MOST inspiring. These are the places that color, texture and well thought out ideas really thrive.
