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]

button themed wedding

Buttons make an adorable wedding theme, but before getting carried away, be sure to pick one or two vibrant colors to center your wedding decor around, and then mix those with neutral hues to keep it from looking like a hot mess. Another adorable touch for your button themed wedding would be  to incorporate billy button flowers! They're darling. 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]

Anemone flowers are delicate, beautiful, and available in all sorts of different colors, however, the black and white ones are so timelessly elegant that they make for an absolutely stunning wedding. While searching for black and white wedding inspiration I came across these gorgeous silhouette  cake toppers from Wedzu. They are custom made from pictures you send and they can be had in any sort of color, but I am partial to these classic black ones! photo … [Continue reading]

james and the giant peach

peach and cream wedding

I loved the book James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl. Little James, who is oppressed by two evil aunts, escapes on a giant peach with magical insect friends - it's the best! And let's imagine for a second that little James grows up and gets married - this is what I think his wedding might look like. Who was your favorite character? Mine was definitely the chronic complaining centipede who had a hundred gorgeous shoes. What girl wouldn't want a hundred beautiful … [Continue reading]

primary colors

Primary Colors

The three primary colors are red, yellow, and blue - why? Because they cannot be created by mixing any other colors. When you mix primary colors together, you'll get what is called a secondary color like shades of purple, green, and orange. If you mix one primary color with a secondary color, you'll get a tertiary color (confused yet?), and that's when we get colors like blue-green, or yellow-orange. Honestly, this had to be one of the hardest inspiration boards … [Continue reading]

Floral print wedding

It's no secret that ladies love flowers, and floral printed fabrics have been a fashionable item for hundreds of years. Dress designers are adding floral prints all over the place this season, and the Atelier Aimee dress in this inspiration board is especially beautiful. The floral print originates in Asia; throughout history, traders brought fabrics with ornate floral designs to Europe where they sold for very high prices and so floral prints quickly became a … [Continue reading]

Mint colored wedding ideas and inspiration

Mint is a great color to use for your wedding as a mono-color scheme because it's fresh, it's young, and it's fun. If you want to combine other colors with your mint decor choose springtime pastels or crisp whites. That, and I'm loving this vintage mint colored Ericsson telephone! photo credits: dress, circle garlands, cupcake toppers, bow tie, chocolate buttons, mint church, vintage car, wedding cake, heart earrings. … [Continue reading]

Charleston wedding

Several months ago my friend Melanie came back from a trip to Charleston and a day later she had all sorts of cute pictures from her cousin's wedding up on Facebook and of course I photo creeped all over them because that's what I do with wedding pictures on Facebook... a little later she emailed me a link saying "hey, you should create a wedding inspiration board from Jessica and Bryan's wedding - it's on this site called Style Me Pretty..." Style Me Pretty!?!? I … [Continue reading]

orange you glad to see me?

Orange Wedding Inspiration Board

What can orange do for you? Lets find out. According to several sites I read while scouring for orange wedding details, orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, the tropics and represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, and encouragement. I also learned that orange stimulates the brain (perfect for bright-minded brides!), and is a color that is especially … [Continue reading]

bazooka joe

Retro pink wedding inspiration and ideas

Remember Bazooka Joe bubble gum? And the fun, eye patch wearing kid on the comic strips that they came wrapped in? And of course the sugary sweet goodness of those little pink gums, and how you'd end up chewing 10 of them in an hour because the flavor died so fast? I used to love that gum! And that, of course, is the inspiration behind this bubble gum pink board. The detail I'm loving most right now are those pink bubble gum popsicle soaps - aka, the perfect … [Continue reading]

Costa Rica Wedding

I'm going to be brutally honest here - one of my friends said to me recently, "why don't you have any African American couples on your wedding inspiration boards?"  I blushed. I fiddled with my hands. I didn't know what to say! Such an oversight on my part. It really hadn't crossed my mind but there I was, shame faced and guilty as charged. And that got me thinking... I consume wedding blogs like my favorite white cheddar popcorn. I eat them up, everyday, all day … [Continue reading]

gold and peach

Peach and gold wedding

Peach and gold is such a lovely color combination - I think I'm obsessed! And it's pretty new to the scene, so you're sure to get a lot of 'ooohs' and 'ahhhhs' when your guests first see your color palette choice. Accessorize this breathtaking look with a pair of peach colored earrings, a stunning (as seen in Vogue) clutch, a delicate hairpin, and a perfect bridesmaid gift would be a beautiful peach colored crystal ring from Amanda Pearl. And don't forget! Burnett's … [Continue reading]

boho bali

Bohemian wedding in Bali

Can't quite make the flight? Why not bring the Balinese style to you? It's not as hard as it may seem. First, for your venue, find a private estate with a pool or a hotel with a pool and surround the pool with low lying lanterns. If there are any water fountains place plumeria flowers on the surface, and toss some in the pool and along the aisle as well. Paper lanterns and Balinese style umbrellas are readily available for purchase over the internet and add a nice … [Continue reading]

blueberry tart

Blue wedding ideas and inspiration

Nothing screams summer to me like mangoes dripping from the trees around here, but if I were to live on the mainland United States, it would be blueberries. And there are few other words in the English language that I love so much as 'tart.' It has so many (sometimes naughty) connotations. So here, for you, on this lovely Sunday, is a blueberry tart recipe and some fabulous ways to incorporate the world's most popular and most liked color into your wedding … [Continue reading]
