inspiration board #21: peach, plum & vintage lace

Good morning!  How are you all this Monday?  I have whole host of lovely wedding gorgeousness to share with you this week, I can’t wait!

When Kate Middleton wore her elegant lace Alexander McQueen wedding dress earlier this year, the industry predicted a huge trend in lace for all you lovely 2011/2012 brides to be.  The new bridal collections are embracing this trend, incorporating the most intricate, feminine vintage and modern lace into their collections.  I love this trend, and can’t wait to see how you all include beautiful lace details throughout your day!

Today’s inspiration board embraces our love of lace, in a modern vintage-inspired scheme.  With the soft ivory and creamy tones of vintage lace, a soft peach and plum palette work beautifully to create a sophisticated and elegant feel.  Lace is delicate and pretty, so you can get away with including it in lots of different ways without it becoming too much, perhaps just add a touch of plum ribbon to add some depth.  I love the delicate french lace and tulle of the veil, a soft and pretty daytime look for a bride, which can be carried through to the evening reception using the sheerest lace table runners.  The cute mini jam-jar votives would be such a simple and pretty DIY project, and add a beautiful glow to your tables.

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.

I'm also a co-founder at The Brand Studio, where I design and curate beautiful photoshoots for wedding and lifestyle brands, as well as running wedding industry community the B.LOVED Hive where I support and nurture wedding pros building industry leading businesses. Yep, I definitely have the best job in the world.
