I am headed to the Cape today for my sister-in-law's wedding, so I won't be posting throughout the day. But, I didn't want to leave you without a piece of serious eye candy to get you inspired as you head into the weekend!

The brilliant (and when I say brilliant, I am vastly understating their talent) florists at Artfool have recently re-designed their website and the portfolio portion that they have online is, well...

Color Palette Questions – A Tropical Venue

Here is our next reader question... I'm writing to you with sincere desperation.... I am getting married in December on the 29th 2008. Due to the cheap deal, we are doing a winter wonderland theme so rich royal blues, light blue, whites, purples and a punch of royal red. Inspired by a previous design board you had posted about "Jewel tones." The huge issue is that it is 100% a tropical outside venue, it has huge waterfalls everywhere which look like and feel like you are in Hawaii. So, you...

Color Palettes Questions – Peach or Orange?

Another reader question....I’m getting married in April 2009 and wanted to use orange and white for my wedding. However, after changing from a white dress to a different colored dress — the official name of the color is shell — I’m wondering if the bright orange is still a good choice. I was thinking perhaps a peach color might work better but I’m at a loss. Any ideas?

Here is a pic of the dress that this reader has chosen...

What do you think...does orange...

Color Palettes Questions – Gold and…?

A question from reader, Amanda...I'm getting married at the Newton White Mansion May 9, 2009.  My wedding is at 7 PM with ideally an outdoor ceremony and then we will move inside into an all glass atrium at the back of the house for the reception.  I know I want to incorporate the color gold (the chivari chairs that come with the place are gold) but I'm trying to determine the rest of the look.  I know I want something very classic.  I like to describe the idea of my wedding as...
