Picture this: a single coral carnation, floating calmly in the gentle waves of the sea… Too cheesy? Yeah, well, it still looks too perfect for eating, so no harm done.

All this bright color in front, above, behind…you’d expect it to be overwhelming, but the massive amount of white and silver is there to provide the satisfying aesthetic balance!

Starfish and burlap seem to be a reoccurring theme when it comes to a coral-and-turquoise combo – and why not? They all look great together!

Or, if you’re one to prefer a more toned-down version of this palette, a light soothing turquoise shade has its own magical way of achieving beauty too!

How to: Keep your Honey Gift Favors sweet!

Nothing is as sweet as honey in the summer! Brides are buzzing about this trend of their guests with honey favors in unique containers: jars, sticks, and even test tubes! You can label these favors with sweet phrases like “meant to bee”, “so sweet of you to come!”, or “bee mine”. The possibilities are endless, but one thing is for certain: personalizing every bit of your wedding will make your guests feel even more special. Check out some inspiration below!

How sweet is this setup? We love the rustic romance feel of the crates, handmade sign, and twinkle lights.

Using embroidery floss to attach a honey dipper to your jars can give you another way to incorporate your color palette into the wedding!

Test tubes are unique and easy for your guests to grab on the way out of your reception.
