Inspired by Nicky!

Another glamorous twist on the vintage era from Nicky......thank you so much Nicky for following in the footsteps of Laura and inspiring us all with your fabulous inspiration board.

Lovely ivory, creams and whites with a hint of taupe - lovin the faux rose - bottom left!  Nicky was very much inspired by Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn in her search for wedding pictures and putting her board together.  I guess if you look at the dress this is where Nicky started with the beautiful diamante bodice and pretty neckline with lots more diamante detail flowing from the waistline and across the front of the dress.  Lovely use of diamante pins in the up-do hair style and finishing off the look with some elegant drop earrings.

Love the couple of bouquets on the board - personally I think the top left hand corner bouquet would compliment Nicky's glamorous look perfectly leaving the diamantes on the stem details.  I wouldn't want to camouflage the intricate dress detail by covering it with flowers so I think keep these very neutral and very simple - let the dress stand out not the flowers!

Hollywood glam with diamantes and beautiful lace on the invitations and the 'order of the day' plan just stunning.  I would love to see menu's matching the lace stationery in each place setting with a lovely large open cream/hint of pink rose even taupe (could be artificial) adorning each napkin.  Another great idea if I was using a table runner on a long or a round table is to use the lovely heavily beaded sparkly lace again in very neutral colours (I have a picture in my collection that I will add at some point to the 'Little Details' gallery) this would catch the candlelight and sparkle......far prettier than table sprinkle!

The use of single flower, in this cases roses in the long table decorations also shouts pure elegance.  I would introduce a little more candleight to this table.....lots of little glass tea light holders intermingled with the flowers just to lift my idea of the beaded lace runner.

Great Nicky I love it and I already have great insight into your ideas for the perfect wedding.  Our pre-wedding meeting will be full if inspiration!

Again......thank you so much for those of you who have emailed your ideas - if you haven't give it a go it's great fun and a very useful tool in your planning.  I look forward to being inspired by you very soon!

Happy Planning!
