orange and blue with a spot of yellow

blue and orange wedding

Orange and blue is a fresh and fun color combination - I think it gives off a bit of a retro vibe as well. While perusing Pinterest I found some cute orange and blue details you might think about incorporating into your wedding: Sweet invitations from Zee Studio (originally seen at a Mad Men themed wedding!)... Adding orange flowers and blue ribbons to your wedding cake... Adorable bunting flags from Vintage Green Limited...   And finally, using pincushion … [Continue reading]

Sunday Edition 3

Ahhh yes, it's time for another Sunday Edition! How was everyone's week? Mine was pretty quiet (which sometimes is a good thing) and yesterday was definitely a reflective day for me. I am a mentor to a 'little sister' in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program and we see each other two to three times a month for the past year and a half since we were matched. While I won't go into the details of her life here, I do believe that this little girl does more for me than I … [Continue reading]

sea urchin wedding

Does anyone else do their best thinking while working out? I know I do, and  the other day while swimming laps I had this little epiphany, what about a 'Facebook Fan Friday' wedding inspiration board?  So I posted a poll on Burnett's Boards Facebook page asking what concept you would like to see turned into a wedding inspiration board. While I wouldn't call it a resounding success (the poll was viewed over 2,000 times, but only received something like 30 votes, most … [Continue reading]

Marfa, Texas wedding

Sometimes I run across a real wedding that is just too special and too perfect not to share bits and pieces of it with you. Emily and Colby's Marfa, Texas wedding made my heart sing. Everything about it is so amazing! The antlers (lord knows I love me some antlers at a wedding), the bright colors, the art car - it's 'Texas quirkiness' at its best. Plus, on a more personal note, back when I was in college at a university in Texas (Rice), I wrote a research paper … [Continue reading]

Ferns are a natural and beautiful addition to any wedding.

If green, leafy weddings with an eco-chic vibe are right up your alley, you'll … [Continue reading]

cotton candy

My favorite detail in this red and pink wedding inspiration board is the picture of the cotton candy cupcakes. They are absolutely adorable, have a definite whimsical vibe, and they look delicious.

Use cotton candy at your dessert bar... Decorate your wedding cake with … [Continue reading]

Carrie Bradshaw Wedding

One of my favorite episode of Sex and the City was when Carrie got stood up for a date by Alexander Petrovsky. Not, obviously, because she got stood up, but because of the stunning Versace dress she was wearing. Honestly, the most tragic part of this episode was that she didn't get to wear that dress out! I mean hey, we all knew that Alexander wasn't the guy for her. For a Carrie Bradshaw styled wedding with a modern, New York in fall vibe, pair different shades of … [Continue reading]

Bohemian Wedding

I have to admit, I'm quite the online shopper, and when I ran across Free People's New Romantics Splendor in the Grass Dress, I just had to make a bohemian wedding inspiration board to go along with it. The embroidery on it is stunning and this would make a perfect wedding dress for an offbeat bride! One trend I'm loving right now shown in this inspiration board is hand-painted antlers. They're quirky, they're cool, and they make fabulously rustic centerpieces and … [Continue reading]

If you saw my first (and before today, only) personal post, then you already know that I am an avid reader of Rock N'Roll Bride's Green Room posts, and her post this past Tuesday inspired this new feature on Burnett's Boards which I'm calling (not so creatively, my 'creative' option was vetoed by my husband for being a little too edgy...) the Sunday Edition. What is the Sunday Edition going to be? Well, it's a weekly wrap up of  what I loved in the wedding … [Continue reading]
