This is what they did. They decided the main colors should be yellow, gray and hints of teal in a beaming, happy theme composed of quant little love birds, zingy lemons and elegant vintage all wrapped up in a rustic flavor with lots of color. The couple say they had lots of fun going to all the antique stores collecting the décor for the venue and tables.

All tables got covered with old lace tablecloths, with different dessert plates and forks from the 70′s. I have always loved this style of set-up for escort cards.

Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

Or you can get crazy and whip a fabulous little box full of delightfulness like Bethany. Most of her bridesmaids-to-be lived far from her. Given how very much they meant to her, she did not want to text them and ask them to play a major role in her wedding. Bethany had a great “Will You Be My Bridesmaid?” Project. The outside of the box got two to three coats of light ivory to cover up the natural wood aura, and inside was treated to one layer of ivory, too.

In the boxes, she placed photos of an inspiration board and paint chips to show where she was going with her color scheme. To learn about Bethany’s wedding you van visit her blog Rinse.
