Reader Megan writes in to say:
I am planning a wedding for this New Years Eve. I’m trying to find ways to be inspired and I would LOVE to see what you might come up with for the color scheme I’m using – I’m using silver, whites and an apple green. I’m going for a classic look, very festive but at the same time classically sophisticated. Because it’s a New Years Eve wedding I’m hoping it will be on a grand scale – I’m marrying at a large ballroom with very high ceilings in Saratoga Springs, NY. I’m using branch centerpieces with hanging votives, and lush florals at the base, and my dress is by Monique Lhuillier – a satin gown with a trumpet shape and silver french knotting on the bodice. If you could provide any inspiration or even an inspiration board from these ideas, that would be wonderful! Thank you in advance!
Megan I’m loving your color scheme! Since your bridesmaids gowns are navy and your ballroom is gold, I added in some hints of both of those to your holiday affair:
Clockwise from top left: Amsale dress via Brides, Boutique Getaways via Desire to Inspire, I Dream of Letters, Brides, Hall of Springs via Joe Elario, British Wedding Magazine via Nibs, Marie Labbancz, Mi Belle, Chic finds for the home, Housemartin, Martha Stewart
Megan, the blue and gold may be a bit heavy for your taste but I love the warmth it brings and mixing silver and gold on a holiday is always a great idea! I also love the idea of incorporating clocks for your NYE event – perhaps your gifts for your groomsmen are pocket watches and your guest book table arrangement includes some clocks too!
