inspiration board #75: kraft & neon

Good morning my b.loved lovelies!  What a brilliant weekend to end the Olympics! Sun shining, a few more golds to our tally, and the most spectacular, crazy & truly British closing ceremony! Were you secretly looking forward to the Spice Girls? Oh, I was and they did us proud! Here’s for a new generation of Girl Power!

Today’s board is a representation of modern girl power, the girly pinks and neon brights, clean lines and kraft paper accents creating a cool contemporary look with feminine attitude!  Wouldn’t this just be such a fun wedding theme, perhaps at a cool and contemporary city venue?  Tease your guests with just a hint of neon string on the invites, and add a few neon accessories to your ceremony look with a statement necklace and, of course, the shoes!  Bring your ‘maids in on the action with contrasting dresses or for a really modern twist, white tops and brightly coloured skirts with bold & bright accessories.  Use kraft paper as a neutral base to make your neon accents really pop!  This is the most amazing theme for a crafty bride – take inspiration from uber-trendy stylist Jesi Haack, and wrap tins and vases in kraft paper and add your neon twist with washi tape and flowers, keep place settings simple and add a splash of colour with a favour!  This oh-so-effective neon cake from Martha Stewart Weddings looks like a traditional white wedding cake from afar, but move closer and you get a shocking flash of pink! LOVE!  Oh, and of course I couldn’t create a bright board without including my newest fave wedding prop, a giant balloon filled with confetti from the clever people over at BonBon Balloons!

Dare you go neon?!

After a decade-long career in corporate interior design, I took a giant leap of faith, left the security of an office job, and founded B.LOVED in 2011 as a platform for romantic and beautiful wedding inspiration. Thanks to a whole lot of creativity, hard work and passion, my gamble paid off and B.LOVED became one of the leading wedding blogs in the UK.

You’ll also find me working as an Editorial Stylist, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as contributing as a founding member of bridal inspiration hub Aisle Society, and running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive from our super pretty base in London. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
