Need a little gorgeous in your day to get you closer to the weekend? Today’s inspiration for a glamorous modern wedding has it in spades, along with a pretty big dose of fierce, and an equally large one of pretty. For someone whose tastes tend to skew classic, I have been loving all of the modern geometric inspiration that has been popping up on my favorite blogs lately. I wanted to put my own spin on that style, and I came up with a luxurious, ultra-feminine board in shades of fuchsia, blush, and gold. It all started with the adorable gem escort card holders that Lemiga Events created – the angular shape of the gems perfectly captured that modern, geometric look, while the gold paint added the perfect, chic touch (there’s an amazing DIY to create your own gems at Ruffled)!
The rest of the details were quick to fall into place – gold cage shoes with a sweeping tulle skirt are just the right blend of elegant and cutting edge, while hanging gem pendant lights against an elegant blush canopy create stunning ambiance. Vibrant peonies and garden roses provide lush pops of color in wild arrangements accented with gold painted leaves, or just a as a single statement bloom. I love how perfectly the delicate gold cage on Hey There, Cupcake!‘s gilded petite cake echoes the bridal shoes – tiny call backs like that are the best way to carry a theme without making it too overt.
