Inspiration Board: Something Old, Something New

Weddings are such an amazing mix of old tradition yet new and different at the same time. This board is an homage to the wedding tradition of something old, something new. The something old is the antique vintage inspiration - mismatched china in shades of white and purple, a tower of champagne coupes, and a sweet vintage pink bridesmaids dress from Etsy. The new is the bride's dress by Peter Langner which is a perfect ode to the Grace Kelly era that only looks vintage, the meringue cake inspired on the outside by both yesteryear and the bride's dress but with decidedly modern flavors inside, the flowers look like a throwback to another era but are updated with surprising purple succulents, and a pair of lovebirds in a cage as a sweet reminder of  your sweet union.
