Whew!! So sorry for the posting delays. As I hinted, I’ve been working on four “finalist” inspiration boards for Kate and Cormac’s August island wedding. I wanted to wait until I had all four ready to go before I debuted the first one so that you could see them all in quick succession, as I’ll be asking for your opinions after all four go live.
The overriding challenge was this: the wedding is on an island, so a certain amount of “nautical-ness” is not only almost impossible to avoid, but desired. However, the vibe we’re going for is really more upscale picnic/fun garden party. Keep in mind that the ceremony and reception will be in the afternoon.
Without further ado, our first option:
This is pretty much your classic red, white, and blue nautical board. Kate really likes the idea of navy, so that’s one of the dominant colors here. She also has decided on a smorgasbord of mini, upscale picnic food for the menu (hence the cheeseburgers). We also love the idea of rope boutonnieres and blueberry jam favors, and I’m rooting for red-and-white striped maids’ dresses (as I’ll be wearing one!). The pennants are an easy DIY and add a fun punch of color, while the getaway boat is pretty much perfect for the location, don’t you think?
Thoughts below, please!
