Alice in Wonderland Wedding

In today's 'guest posts while I'm in Cuba' series, we have Joanne, the wedding invitation guru of All About Wedding Invitations, here to tell you about planning your wedding on Pinterest.

Coral and Yellow Wedding

Today's 'guest post while I'm in Cuba' comes from the lovely Gail of OliverINK! "Where can wedding inspiration come from? How about food?

This palette is displayed perfectly in this Shangri La inspiration board. Add a little pale yellow for a spring/summer wedding or ruby red if you wish it for a fall … [Continue reading]

British Wedding

Next up in our 'guest posts while I'm in Cuba series' is Ian of A Groom's Diary. Now I've gotta say - this blog has me laughing out loud.

With this rainbow loving inspiration board today...I think I feel a party coming on!

Steampunk Wedding

Burnett's Boards fan Sheryl requested a steampunk wedding recently via Facebook, and here it is! Hope you like it Sheryl! What is 'steampunk?' Well, to me, steampunk has always been a genre of literature (or sub-genre of science fiction and fantasy). It's got some 19th century technology (the steam) mixed in with deconstruction and rebellion (the punk). This literature genre has seeped over into art, fashion, and design, and elements of it can be seen all over the … [Continue reading]

These chocolate buttons from The Frosted Petticoat would look perfect on your wedding cake, or for party favors! Then … [Continue reading]

Rustic country wedding in Tahoe

There is just something about rustic barn weddings that I really love. I think it's because of all the places I've lived, I've spent the most time in Texas and it's just so easy to feel 'at home' there. I'd like to introduce you guys to a lovely lady who goes by the twitter handle of TheLuckyCowgirl, she's 'gettin' hitched' this month, and she owns an awesome Etsy store. Among the many amazing things you'll find there are an array of mason jar soap dispensers, and … [Continue reading]
