Monday Inspiration: Succulents

Here are a few items that are inspired by succulents. The easy green color gives more of a neutral feel and can be combined with more delicate colors and textures. Wishing everyone an inspired Monday! Enjoy.

Most Popular Look/Theme in 2011 for Weddings is...

Beach, Tropical and/or Luau. The findings were a result of a survey conducted by BRIDES Magazine. They surveyed over 2,900 Brides or Brides-to-be over the age of 18, who are getting married or got engaged within a year of 2011.

As Floridians, we aren't overly surprised at the findings, as we all have our fair share of starfish and seashells. We love those looks when properly executed, however don't feel trapped by the sand and starfish!

Take inspiration from the beach, land and sea and create your own twist on a popular look. We found this gorgeous inspirational photo shoot from Green Wedding Shoes that we fell in love with. We absolutely adore the use of succulents, aire plants and the natural color palate. We hope you enjoy! :)

Red, white and fabulous!

We couldn't resist this fun American inspired wedding on the Green Wedding Shoes Blog today!

We love the distribution of color throughout the entire wedding from the Bridesmaid's dresses through table top decor, place settings and even the traditional American goodies on the dessert table.

We love when Brides step outside of the box and create a fun and different look. The details are what creates interest and sets your wedding apart from a sea of others.

Happy 4th of July to everyone! Wishing you a safe and firework filled weekend!
