A new inspiration board to share today. We completed these custom colour wedding invitations, based on our Rose Kiss invitation design, for clients Kim & Hayden last year. I just love the combination of the avocado tones with the latte, so thought I'd put a little inspiration board together based on that colour theme. The result, rustic/vintage with a bit of glam!

Today's inspiration features a rainbow of pretty pastels. The sky is the limit with a a theme like this, mix and match your colours and introduce pattern if you wish. We've used our Mademoiselle Polka Dot Wedding Invitation as a base and customised it to a pastel palette.

Couldn't get enough of the Royal Nuptials last month? Neither could we, so couldn't help getting in on the act again with our crown jewel invitation, this time in soft pink but with traditional, regal inspiration.

Nothing says lace has to be vintage or classic- I love the Alannah Rose Lovely Lace invitation because with it's peachy pinks and browns it brings a touch of modern whimsy. A lace gown with a fun veil and sleek silhouette, gorgeous peachy pink shoes and a final touch of glamour with sparkles and martinis.

For a different spin on our popular Latte Lace wedding invitation, I thought I'd make it a little more fun by using a mish mash of favourite things- some pretty rosette shoes, a sparkly charm bracelet. This is a relaxed wedding- comfortable shoes, comfortable gowns and a lot of laid back, casual touches.

The soft, magic of cherry blossoms reminds me of a Japanese spring. This wedding style centred around our Very Cherry Blossom Wedding Invitation is all about pink. Use many different shades to create interest and pair it with the chocolate brown from our invitation so it doesn't become too girly!

I love the idea of taking our Love Me tender wedding invitation in it's rich berry red and creating a jewel toned wedding around it. Bridesmaids in rich blues, reds, greens and golds, stunning multi-coloured earrings and a bold and elegant gown.

To me, The Alannah Rose Sweet Shoppe wedding invitation has always been traditional with a touch of retro glamour- the stripes add a little something special. Classic elements like a beautiful silk tie or clean white bouquet can have stripey details. Add a buffet full of white treats and sweet pink bridesmaids gowns to make it doubly delicious.

Our Bicycle Built For Two wedding invitation always helps me imagine a wedding full of whimsical fun details- short gowns, trays and trays of sweet treats like fairy floss and pink lamingtons and little details like peppermint striped paper straws. Hop on a bicycle and ride away with your new husband with a bouquet and sunglasses and ride off into the sunset. Simply the sweetest way to spend a weekend.
