Inspiration Board Builder

You guys are going to LOVE this. I mentioned last week that we are going to be launching a new social network called the Style Circle in the coming weeks. It's a kick ass site that will allow you to rub elbows with like minded brides, vendors and wedding junkies all in the name of style.  In a word, it's awesome and you guys are going to really love it.

Anyway, the very coolest part about the new Style Circle is that we are officially launching our baby...a brand spanking new...

Inspiration Board…A Mexican Affair!

So, after seeing today's rehearsal dinner (which could just as easily be a kick-butt wedding), I thought it might be fun to put together an inspiration board for a similar fete! Of course, using products that are easily accessible and ideas that would look just as good in your own backyard!

Inspiration by Mika78

I am so beyond happy to have Mimi Woo of the ridiculously great invitation studio, Mika 78 on SMP today. She is a complete genius when it comes to beautiful, fresh design work...kind of making me wish that I could get married all over again, just so that I could order one of her invitations!

Wedding Invitations by Wiley Valentine, V

I've saved the best Wiley Valentine design for last...or at least I think so. Some would argue that the Marie Antoinette invitation from earlier today trumps this invitation, but that's the good part about writing a wedding blog. I win! Here is the board...

And the invitation that it inspired...

Love, love, love this one. Especially the entree selection cards...perfect combination of whimsy and elegance.

So putting some real thought into your invitations is an...

Our next two boards are by Yelena...

The first board features the raspberry color prominently in different shades for a warm, rich feel. I also incorporated a cream color to add depth to the palette of red and white. The unusual cake, adorable changes of shoes and ruby sparkling wine add cute unexpected details to the day.
