white and ethereal wedding inspiration board

This ethereal wedding inspiration board is truly magical. Sometimes, one word is enough to inspire and ‘ethereal’ is definitely one of them. Light, airy, and tenuous, an ethereal wedding is romantic and feminine with a ‘barely there’ color scheme. Start with ivory and white and add other soft touches of blush and neutral hues. Instead of sturdier table linens use tulle or raw edged silks, sprinkle sequins around, and don’t use over the top floral centerpieces; use single blooms in an eclectic mix of clear or blush bud vases and glasses.

An ethereal wedding should have a dream-like and cloudy quality, so perfection isn’t what you are striving for!
