In case you haven't figured it out yet, I love mixing textures. Life would be so boring otherwise, right? So today I have for you an interesting collection of citrus oranges, raw woods and delicate white anything (lace, doilies and crochet included). A little bit bright, a smidgen rustic and a lot of classic wedding white.
If this bridal party concept doesn't make you long for summer then I don't know what will! White cotton sundresses and eye-popping orange flats for the bride and perfectly citrus hued styles for the maids. A little khaki and polka dots for the men and dahlias in the flowers (though for this wedding, I'd keep the flowers minimal). Bring in the rustic wood elements with a statement ring and ring pillow alternative. And of course, finish it off with a darling doily flower basket and perfectly crocheted necklace.
I have been wanting to use these wood chargers in any and every board ever since I first laid eyes on them (and I apologize if you see them again), but finally I found the perfect place to do so. For the tables, I'd trade florals for citrus fruits-- oranges and a few lemons here and there. Place them in glass bowls or jars and intersperse them between lacy paper lanterns and stunning vintage milk glass. I love the idea of a doily runner contrasting against a strong wood table, and think hanging an orange on the back of each chair is totally adorable. For favors, keep it simple with a citrus-themed candy bar or mini mimosa kits!
Something about citrus is just so fresh, it really makes a great jumping off point for a wedding-- and there are tons of options other then my take on the fruitful inspiration. So, what do you think of the citrus wedding trend?
