Eiffel Tower Dessert

My Inspiration:
These divine desserts served up from inside the Eiffel tower made for perfect inspiration. Guests would absolutely love a dessert themed midnight buffet with a selection of your favorite desserts. Even if you both as a couple don't have a sweet tooth you could personalize the experience by adding savory treats like pretzels and spicy peanuts as well.

Delightful Brunch

www.dmweddings.com

My Inspiration:
This time my inspiration comes from an authentic Irish breakfast. While enjoying my breakfast in a sweet café near Killarney I got to thinking about alternative options for feeding your wedding guests. Brunch! If you aren't too keen on the idea of having a huge reception with all the formalities but also prefer to have something a bit more hardy than a cocktail party reception a brunch would be the perfect happy medium. It's a perfect way to treat your guests to something a bit different and enjoy a less formal and relaxed celebration.

St Maarten Favors

My Inspiration:
The shores of St Maarten can inspire lots of exciting ideas and thoughts. Of course the rich colors are inspiration for so many things all on there own. This part of a horse back riding trail made me think of giving mini cactus plants and succulents to guests as favors. Both are low maintenance to care for and plants add life and cheer to a home, so why not continue the spread of happiness after your special day.

Cheerful Sunflowers

My Inspiration:
Can you just picture each of your bridesmaids carrying a single sunflower down the aisle and you with an entire bouquet of them? It would be such a sweet and rather inexpensive way to include these beauties in your ceremony. Adding them to the tops of lanterns and filling the lanterns with green or yellow tulle would sprinkle a bit more of these cheerful flowers into your ceremony. If you are interested in more of an elaborate design, consider covering an arch in them with fabric swagged between or stringing the flower heads on fishing line to create an entire sunflower curtain.

Bermuda Sunshine

My Inspiration:
The calm beaches of Bermuda make me think of using pastel colors in all things wedding. Blush and watery blue tones for dresses and linens would give a nod to a beach lover's passion. A soft pink cake with light aqua or white design accents would be perfect for a summer wedding. Bermuda also sparks ideas for food. I'm thinking start with a beach style clam bake during cocktail hour. Follow that up with family style serving of a light salad, chicken chesapeake, lemon pepper haddock, and champagne marinated beef tips. End the night with an ice cream buffet.

Pure Water Lily



www.dmweddings.com
 
My Inspiration:
Water lilies are such romantic flowers and project such a pure and simple beauty. It may be impossible to include them in a bouquet but think of them in a gorgeous low centerpiece on your guest tables or a tub of them greeting guests as they look for their names on a seating chart. If you aren't having your wedding at a garden you can bring the garden to your wedding.

Fancy Fireworks

 
My Inspiration:
Fireworks! If you have ever been to Walt Disney World (not sponsored) and stayed in the Magic Kingdom to see the spectacular fireworks display and show at night you know how moving and uplifting they can be. Fireworks or sparklers at the end of a wedding can add a magical finishing touch to a love and excitement filled day.

Tropical Centerpiece

www.dmweddings.com
My Inspiration:
Tropical flowers can add such life and vibrancy to any celebration. This inspired me to create a full and leafy table garland with wooden pillar topped with candles scattered throughout it. Adding small potted orchids to each place setting can make a tablescape come to life. Imagine the warm glow mixing with these energizing colors.

Waves and Ombre

 
My Inspiration:
The colors in this photo evoke such peaceful thoughts. This turtle was just cruising through these perfectly blue waters. The ombre vibes make me think of cake icing and how much fun the wave pattern would be with varying shades of blue.

Shells, Sand, and Sun

 
My Inspiration:
When I get free time away from planning a wedding or creating décor for a special event I enjoy drawing and painting. This little sketch made me think of some fun wedding ideas that would add a personal touch to an ocean or beach theme wedding. An entire bouquet made out of shells would definitely make a beautiful statement piece. Having guests write their names on shells and place them into a transparent container would be a unique guest book memento. Lining your aisle with large conch shells and candles would add a romantic stylized hint to your ceremony.
