Totally Elegant and Budget-Friendly Modern Wedding

Categories Real Weddings

We’re just loving Melissa and Bill’s budget-friendly, pink and coral, oh-so elegant wedding! Their nuptials were held at the stately McGregor Memorial Conference Center on the campus of Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. Their beautiful, simple wedding and reception included photos spanning the elegant Royal Park Hotel in Rochester to the University for their ceremony, and finally to the Thomas Welsh Activity Center at Metro Beach for their reception and guitar playing in the sand. Some of our very favorite details include those hot hot pink and coral bridesmaid dresses, adorable flower girls in white tulle, gorgeous florals, the simple elegance of it all, and of course–those catching, joyous smiles from Melissa and Bill! Much thanks to BTW Photography for sharing this lovely wedding with us. Enjoy!

Depending on the hues you choose, it can go from regal and majestic to creative and fanciful and today’s inspiration is proof of that!

Color Monday: Navy and Pink Summer Wedding

Categories Inspiration + Wedding Stationery

Happy “Color Monday!”

Today’s wedding inspiration centers around a summer wedding with a navy, pink and silver color scheme. Bold and bright, this scheme puts a fun twist on a traditional prep school look. Some of our favorite preppy wedding ideas for summer include bridesmaids who wear stripes with confidence and groomsmen who look dapper dressed in khaki pants with pink argyle socks and ties to match! How to set the tone and put some heat on such an outdoor summer wedding as this? We plucked Love Aligned out of our design gallery and personalized it with navy, azalea and silver. With its geometric elements, it’s perfect for our modern preppy wedding.
