Color Inspiration: Berries, Gingham and Aqua

As promised, a little ode to the summer months to come with a berry and gingham wedding! I added in a few pops of aqua to break up all the red, red, red. This scheme was inspired by a Smucker's jar, actually (minus the aqua of course). I finished off a jar of jam and have been saving it to do something with (Ideas? Leave them below!). So I've been staring at it for a few weeks now and finally decided it was great inspiration for a summer wedding. Gingham, my favorite, and berries, another favorite... what could be better?

Oh man do I love this bridal party concept! I finally get to use the men's gingham shirts that I drool over every time I walk into J. Crew. And that perfect little bridesmaid dress... it's Forever 21. In place of a ring pillow (or flower girl basket) why not wrap some gingham ribbon around a real berry carton? Red bouquets with aqua accents and a gingham skirt for the flower girl. For the finishing touch, I could not resist those earrings! (you'll see why as you scroll down!)

For the reception, think fun and casual picnic. Gingham tablecloths and gingham luggage tags for place cards. Trade half your normal amount of flowers for Ball jars filled with berries. This DIY berry table number project is so very fitting and don't forget to "pop" the aqua, I suggest napkins and mini cake stands. For food... berries of course: why not change things up with berry-topped waffles. Nobody will turn down a good breakfast for dessert option!
