the velveteen rabbit

light yellow wedding inspiration board I’m not sure what it was when I thought of one of my favorite childhood books, The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams, but the color ‘light yellow’ immediately sprang to mind. I think it has something to do with the beautiful original illustrations that that book has by William Nicholson or the fact that my old copy is yellow with age. This wedding inspiration board is sweet, romantic, and has a definite southern vibe. For a Velveteen Rabbit inspired wedding use some whimsical touches like the hanging window panes and streamers in this inspiration board and be sure to incorporate ‘fluffy’ flowers and rabbits on your paper goods!

  1. Ahh! I LOVE it! This is one of my favorite childhood books, and pale yellow definitely comes to mind when I think of it, too! I love the fluffy lightness of the flowers in this board. All-around gorgeous!

  2. I love this visual interpretation of the book!

  3. Remember in “Bridget Jones’s Diary” when she talks about cuddling Mark Darcy and kissing the spot on his head where the love rubbed the fur off (like in TVR)? I do that to my husband. Totally random comment…

  4. What a lovely, and perfectly curated inspiration board. I remember TVR was the first story I read that made me weep–openly weep. There is something so amazing and ultimately human about that kind of love. And, though it may not be appropriate for weddings, that type of loss and ultimate redemption, is so precious. Thanks for bringing me back to a very special place with this!

  5. This board is just gorgeous–and I’m loving all the beautiful images you put together!
