darkly romantic plum wedding

Today’s romantic plum wedding inspiration board has an almost gothic vibe to it with its deep, rich colors but puts a little spin on things with an outdoor setting

Dark plum tones look fabulous against neutrals and browns and the pale yellow cake is a wonderful compliment to all the other hues. Church pews, a cathedral length veil, and an abundance of dripping candles on brass candle sticks bring in that dark romance that I previously mentioned.

Quite bewitching isn’t it?

    • OMG I was SOOOO waiting to see who would call me out on it!!! I know I know, so bad. BUT I’ve just been getting overwhelmed with submissions, and it was either post on Saturdays, or not post inspiration boards anymore (and I like making them to much to do that!).
