As you may know by now, we are currently on the beautiful island of Captiva. Sounds exotic, right? If you’ve never heard of it, it is a little barrier island off the coast of Ft. Myers, FL. Captiva Island is truly our home away from home. Here we can experience 50 shades of blue, probably more actually. It is these shades of blue that inspired today’s wedding inspiration board. Along with a few other colors too :)
When in the South, you need to think like a Southerner, right? For me, a Northerner, nothing speaks more Southern to me than dressing up your groom in a cool, seersucker, pale blue suit. One of our first shades of blue. Many beach weddings may be destinations, so what better way to accent the exoticness than by wrapping all the favors in vintage maps. Nowadays, “paper” maps make great conversation pieces. I love the various shades of blue in the map and on the sweet vintage plate. The beautiful sea grass is such a gorgeous shade of pink. While not blue, this particular grass is largely only found on the coast. Starfish and sand go together like peanut butter and jelly, and make cute decorations for any beach wedding, North or South ;) There is nothing better than beautiful vintage glassware that offers many shades of blue, perfect as centerpieces down a long table. Escort cards in shades of peach and pink offer a really pretty accent color to all the shades of blue.
I am so excited to be “home” again, even for only a little while :)
Happy Wednesday!! It is Wednesday, right…?
