12 days of christmas: 2 turtle doves

light pink and white dove themed wedding inspiration board Day 2 in our 12 Days of Christmas series brings us to a turtle dove wedding. Bird themed weddings were really big in 2012 and I expect this trend to continue into 2013 because after all, what is cuter than a pair of love birds?! Turtle doves are normally more of a gray color, but I love the white and light pink color combination in this wedding inspiration board – it’s a lot more feminine, soft, and romantic. For a bird themed wedding go overboard a little bit. Incorporate a birdcage veil, bird cake toppers, feather centerpieces, actual birdcages, and a guest book tree!

  1. This is beautiful!! I love that pretty shade of pink – one of my favorites actually 🙂 That rosette dress is to die for!!

    • I’m obsessed with that dress too – I feel like I’ve seen it all over the place but I seriously can’t get enough of it!

  2. That dress is gorgeous!!

  3. Love all the textures and the darling cake topper. I’m tempted to buy it, even though I have no need for a cake topper! Maybe I’ll put it on my non-existent Christmas tree…

  4. Wow, it’s actually a DIY!? Love it, but there’s no way mine would turn out that cute!
