Inspiration Board: Simple and Chic

Weddings can seem complicated, but they don't have to be. There is such an understated elegance to a simple wedding that focuses on the important things - two people pledging to spend their lives together. Simple doesn't have to mean boring either. A stylish bride in a short sleeved dress, something that could be worn again. Paired with a cream coat its the perfect outfit for a (free) outdoor ceremony in a public place, like a waterfront park - amazing views included. Invitations from Paper Source set the tone for the theme of simple elegance for the day, and the motif is mimicked in the DIY printed table runner at the restaurant reception. Wine and food are the focus, with DIY simple yet stunning decor of wine bottle table numbers and modern blue vases paired with chrysanthemums and magnolia leaves that double as favors. A cream puff "cake" on stacked Martha Stewart Collection cake stands (which you can use again of course) ends the fete on a sweetly unique note. Simple, chic and very budget friendly.
