Blue, Gray and Red Rainy Day Wedding Inspiration Board

May 15, 2009 | editorial team

The lovely bride-to-be and Junebug reader Charisse emailed me for a little help finding inspiration for her somewhat unusual wedding theme. Charisse and her fiance love the calm and quiet of rainy days and are hoping to plan a rainy-day themed wedding (regardless of the day’s actual weather!) with a blue-gray color palette that includes some splashes of Charisse’s favorite color, red. “I don’t want it to be depressing or dreary but very calm with an unexpected punch of red. Romantic, very romantic, and elegant with a little bit of bling.”

What a fun project this was pulling some ideas together! My focus with this inspiration board was incorporating natural elements like feathers, bird’s nests, branches, twigs and fern motifs to help bring the feeling of the outdoors, in. The soft blues and grays look like the sky on a cloudy day and keep everything feeling delicate, romantic and serene. Here you are Miss Charisse, enjoy…
