Etsy Wedding: Pastels & Daisies

I love Easter because, to me, when Easter arrives, spring arrives. It's the only time of the year when I really embrace white and pastels in all their glory. Today I wanted to bring you an Etsy wedding that would be so perfect to hold over Easter weekend, or any time throughout the spring really. It was inspired by daisies, the simple, sweet flower that allowed me to pull white as my main color and a delicate yellow as an accent. True to my style, I threw in some purple accents to mix things up. And what an Easter-y purple it is!

I could just die over this daisy ring bearer pillow. Yes, that little grass & daisy bit of cuteness is for your rings! Don't you love it? Classic white for the bride and flower girl, think innocent and feminine. These bridesmaid dresses are subtly striped and absolutely scream SPRING! Why not throw on a classic cardigan for a few picture? Leave the pops of purple to the men-- yes, I'm suggesting gingham again! Is there really a happier fabric?

Daisy arrangements in milk glass vases and vessels with a little purple sprinkled across the table. Vintage plates are a must if your guest list is small and can accommodate this. Use all sorts of pastelly prints and colors, take a cue from this plate for a start. Do I have to say that cupcakes are a requirement? Ones with fondant flowers are preferred. If you choose to hold an affair around Easter and want to incorporate it subtly, test out these seaglass eggs for place cards or this egg garland for a ceremony backdrop.

I'm off for an Easter weekend at home in New Jersey and will be breaking this Friday from my posts to prepare for a special video shoot I'm working on for Notable. Enjoy your weekend and happy hunting! (Egg hunting that is!)

Aspiring to Inspire,
