Parisien Romance – Inspiration for a Dove Grey & Peach Wedding

Sometimes inspiration for a wedding palette comes from the most unlikely of places! Today’s ‘Parisien Romance‘ comes courtesy of a map no less (the map at the bottom left of this ‘Parisien Romance’ mood-board) Is there anything seemingly more mundane than a map?

This palette however is anything but mundane! The combination of ivory and grey with an accent of peach is deliciously chic, romantic and has a certain…… je ne sais quoi! It’s timeless, elegant and infinitely flexible, perfect for a wedding in any season.

This dreamy colour scheme demands an equally romantic bridal gown. Inspired by the city of the map, I went looking for the best french lace wedding dresses and found some heavenly designs. Like  this lavish design from Alvina Valenta’s 2012 Collection, full of exquisite details is utterly divine……

The pattern of the lace is lovely and just look at the beautiful back detail……

With my love of long sleeved wedding dresses I just had to feature this dreamy design by Jim Hjelm with a belt accented waist, an open back and a sweeping train……

The silhouette created is breathtaking……

A slightly more contemporary shape from Tara Keely with it’s strapless sweetheart neckline, the scalloped, tiered skirt of this dress is sublime……

If lace isn’t for you, then something soft with texture, such as lots of romantic layers, like this Alvina Valenta design, would look equally as graceful. How gorgeous is the sparkly cape – perfect for that evening transition (instantly creating two looks from one dress!)……
