Inspiration board: Garden wedding flowers

Our family is hosting a vintage garden wedding for my daughter, and I must admit that I love planning her wedding with her! We're burning up the phone lines and email boxes while sharing every detail.  The event will be held this spring at one of the loveliest and most romantic spots in the US - an enchanting outdoor garden on the famed San Antonio River Walk. So, the flowers have to announce the joyous occasion for our beautiful bride and her beloved groom in a traditionally Southern style.

Yes, a vintage Southern style garden wedding - the bride's chosen theme. Think of those charming evenings in Savannah or Charleston, or gracious garden soirees in New Orleans or Louisville. We're envisioning a picture perfect setting with glorious flowers. So, we came up with three color schemes, each that would complement the eggplant color to be worn by the bridal party.

Our first inspiration board reflects bold hues in purple, pink, lavender and green.

The second inspiration board scheme comes from the same color families as above, but in pastel shades.

Our third color board consists of barely there blush tones. So romantic!

Right now, it looks like the vintage garden wedding may be reflected in an abundance of pastels inspired by the photos with lavender, light pinks, cream and citrus green. Great choices for spring with freesia, peonies, ranunculus (my favorite flower), hydrangea, cream roses, lavender, stock and helleborus.

Oh, did I mention this is SO MUCH FUN!
