board game wedding: life

The board game wedding series continues today with a classic and traditional all white wedding themed after the game Life!

traditional all white wedding

The classic board game Life always seemed so traditional to me. Each square encouraged you to do what you’re ‘supposed’ to do: go to college, get married, buy a home, have or adopt babies, and make lots of money. You know – the traditional things to do. I wanted to play off of that sense of tradition for this inspiration board.

The church pews for the ceremony, the white cake, tastefully covered up bride, and lace elements are all representative of traditional wedding styles and since the board game pieces are little cars – a classic getaway car would be perfect for a Life themed wedding!

Details to adore:

  1. I am always a fan of a neutral color palette and this is beautiful …and those shoes? I’ll be needing a pair immediately!

  2. I’ve actually never played this game! I love the idea of a traditional white-on-white wedding though. That sequined jacket is really cool.

  3. This board is really relaxing to look at- so soft and pretty!

  4. I think those cake toppers are perfect! Love the soft colors of this board.

  5. That cake topper would be great for a Jane Austen-themed wedding, too!
