Happy Spring!

Yeah! Can you believe it's Spring? (finally!) and to start the new season off right, I'm going to feature a couple of Spring-inspired custom designs that we just completed for two May '08 weddings. We will feature their full wedding stories in some future posts (so stay tuned!).

Lauren & Todd's custom wedding invitations were inspired by fresh Spring florals in shades of pink with bright green accents. This is their colour scheme for the entire wedding, Lauren also wanted to incorporate a bit of "bling" (of course!) into the design and we came up with a floral-wreath inspired monogram with "L & T" for them to be used throughout their wedding stationery on menus, place cards, etc.

For Christina & Nathan's custom design, they requested soft pink and sage green tones and wanted some ivory shades to create a feeling of a soft sunset or candle light. They are having an outdoor wedding surrounded by trees, so we incorporated a tree motif into their monogram to add an illustrative element.

So, if you find yourself stuck on deciding on a color scheme, look no further than your own backyard. Mother Nature is THE best artist out there, just look to the natural world for your inspiration and you just can't go wrong!
