Anjali and Jayesh are getting married in August and having an indoor traditional Hindu wedding. When Anjali emailed me she asked for something traditional, but with a hint of modernity and the colors she wanted to work with are monaco blue, an antique gold, and white. With such a lovely request I couldn’t wait to put these wedding inspiration boards together! For a perfectly elegant look for this bride she can pair gold and blue bangles with a stunning white and gold lengha. A white bouquet wrapped with a monaco blue ribbon, a gold tikka, and navy blue mehndi designs completes the look. For a little extra ‘something blue’ bridesmaids and family members can write their well wishes on the soles of her bridal shoes!
For Anjali and Jayesh’s wedding reception they can combine all of their wedding color palette choices by using monaco blue table cloths, gold chargers for beneath the dinner plates, and gorgeous white floral centerpieces. Gratitude cards and menus wrapped in ribbons are lovely and thoughtful touches.
The details are always the most fun to plan while creating your dream wedding. For this lovely couple a gold cake is a must! Monaco blue escort cards and linen napkins are also a nice way to tie in their wedding colors. An offbeat guest book idea (that provides fun for years to come) is to have guests write their well wishes on jenga puzzle pieces. To keep the look of their ceremony elegant and traditional, Jayesh and Anjali can decorate their mandap with white flowers and hanging candles to give off a warm golden glow.
