*New Feature* ~ Etsy Finds of the Week

🌻🌻 Hello my lovelies! I bring to you today a new feature for my blog – “Etsy Finds of the Week”. I am forever finding myself looking on Etsy.com. A lot of the time because I’m on Pinterest, pinning away, and I will click on a pin to find the source and so many many times I end up on Etsy.com. I’m sorta OCD about my pins saying the correct person or place they came from, for example, making sure the right designer of a wedding gown gets credit ect… Which in turn leads me to all sorts of little gems I wasn’t expecting to find! 😁
So I thought, If I’m already spending the time and effort into this, I might as well share them with all of you as well. So here is my first list of Etsy.com finds of the week!

This week I decided to showcase Pink, Blush & Floral Wedding Gowns. The popularity of the “not quite white” wedding dress is very evident on Etsy. Lots of Vintage & New options for anyone who dares to go pink. ~Just a word to the wise, be careful you don’t end up looking like your headed to Prom instead of your Wedding. It can be a pretty thin line (unless that’s what you want then of course totally Rock it! ❤) Hope you enjoy!

Pantone Colors of 2015 ~ Scuba Blue

Hello there my sweets! Hope everyone has had a wonderful week! Tgif 😀 I was going through all my posts yesterday and noticed I haven’t done a “Pantone Color” post in a bit. So I thought I’d better get my bootie movin’ and get ’em done!
Looking at the Pantone colors from spring I thought the color that could go with a spring or summer wedding/event (and even fall or winter if done right) is Scuba Blue ~

According to Pantone “An invigorating turquoise, Scuba Blue conveys a sense of carefree playfulness. Even though a cool shade, the vibrancy of Scuba Blue adds a splash of excitement to the palette.”  It is definitely one of my favorite colors. The ocean is a very special place to me. Even though I’ve only been there a few times, I am always instantly at peace when I’m by the ocean 🙂 This color reminds me of spring break & lazy summer days. I can really see why a lot of people would chose this color for their wedding. It is just a happy color for a very special, happy day!

If you’re thinking of a Beach or Tropical theme for your Big Day, this is the perfect color to use as the main focus. Here I used Pink, Purple, Gold, Yellow & Neutrals as accents to show how many different ways you can have a Beach/Tropical Theme without being boring:

Aren’t they so pretty? As you can see, even all these beach weddings can have a different vibe depending on how you use colors.
But this color isn’t just for the beach! I was happily surprised to see how versital it really is. As some of you know, Red is my all time favorite color! And when you put these 2 together you get instant Retro-Awesome! 🙂

How fun is that?? I loooove the red checker VW Bus! I could have made 10 boards with these colors easily lol. Even if you LOVE Red like me but don’t want to go “Retro”, this color combo can quite Elegant as well:

Aaaand Red can be used in a Beach theme too!

image

Now if you want a bright fun summer theme without the beach then I highly suggest Yellow ~

That embroidered gown in the top set is to die for! Isn’t it?!
Now last but of course never least. I put a few ideas together to show how this wowzzer of a color can be great for fall & winter as well. It’s definitely unique & that’s why I Love It! 💖💖

I just love these shades together! You almost don’t need any other color to go with it. But, of course, you know I just had to put a couple posh purple palettes together as well lol.

Pantone Colors for Fall 2015

     Hi there my beauties 🙂 I hope you’re all having a great week so far. I’ve been doing well. My granddaughter’s Birthday was on Monday so I got to spend the day with all of them. I just can’t believe she is already 4 yrs old. Smh lol. Seems like her momma was just turning 4 lol.

image

Doesn’t she just melt your heart!? 💖💖
Sorry, I just can’t help myself lol.
Oh! Yes, and a bit of good news ~ the wedding photos are in! So I will be posting them very soon 🙂

Alrighty then! Now let’s get to the reason y’all are reading this shall we?
Recently Pantone released their color picks for Fall 2015. As some of you know, I’ve been blogging about the Spring Colors for 2015, so I thought why not add the new ones in as well? I was pretty excited when I saw them. I think Pantone did a fabulous job picking some beautiful colors that transition really well with their Spring picks. And here they are….

See? I think they’re all lovely. And don’t freak out if you picked a “Spring” color(s) for your Summer/Fall wedding either. As you can see, the Fall palette has slightly deeper hues than Spring but that doesn’t mean you have to only use them for the season they’re released.  Especially if you’re picking Marsala (color of the whole year). You could throw in a Fall shade with your Spring ones for a bit of added depth. Or use a Spring to brighten up a Fall palette! When I saw these colors I seriously squealed with million combos running through my head! I found myself instantly drawn to Amethyst Orchid, Biscay Bay, Cashmere Rose, Reflecting Pond and Stormy Weather. They’re all so pretty!

I think I will do a blog on each of those as well as finish up the Spring ones I have for you. Hopefully this helps some of you get an idea or two for the big day you’re planning! Honestly that is the reason I started this blog. Your color palette and theme are one of the very first decisions you HAVE to make in the planning, it can be so overwhelming. Seeing ideas in photos and having color guides to use make things a bit more tolerable! 🙂
So what were your favorite color(s) for the Fall 2015? Let me know in the comments! It would help me out so much! Are there any other color or color combos you’d like to see a blog on? I’d be happy to help put your ideas into pics you can look at 🙂
I hope y’all have a great rest of the week & I’ll see you next time.

Dapper Inspiration Daily ~ Aquamarine Edition

Hello Lovelies! Today I’m inspired by the Aqua-Teal-Blue family of colours. Pantone has chosen 2 of the colors from this family for their Spring 2015 list. Aquamarine is a very pretty light ocean blue. An awesome addition to any color palette, but especially for Beach Theme Weddings. This color is good all year round! And it doesn’t hurt that there’s also a Birthstone named for this pretty beauty 🙂 How would y’all use this gorgeous color? What’s your favorite birthstone? I’d love to hear in the comments! Here’s a few Inspiration Boards showing how gorgeous this color is! Hope you enjoy 🙂 and see ya next time! ~
