Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons

4th of July Celebrations

I couldn’t let today pass without a nod to the date, and so this week’s Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons is dedicated to you US brides looking forward to a long holiday weekend with loved ones. Of course a red, white & blue colour palette is perfect for celebrations other than the 4th July! So whether you are Stateside looking forward to enjoying a weekend on the beach; or elsewhere escaping the winter chill in front of a roaring open fire (which is how Mr E and I will be spending this Independence Day); I have some gorgeous red, white and blue wedding inspiration for you…..

3. When it comes to weddings, I think fun is the best way to go with this palette, like lovely bride Anita did with these red petticoats peeping out from underneath her bridesmaids flirty blue 1950s inspired dresses…..

4. I just love the midnight blue of the grooms velvet jacket in this shoot (taken from the latest breathtaking issue of Magnolia Rouge Magazine) Deep and opulent, midnight blue it is the perfect shade for a more Wintery celebration (plus, velvet? So lush!)…..
