If you aren’t quite in the mood for Valentines Day yet… you sure will be after perusing this delectable board of soft pinks and sultry reds! Our fab friend Carly of Carly Rae Weddings created this love inspired mood board especially for us – to get our creative juices flowing for planning bridal showers, bachelorette parties, your wedding day or even Valentine’s Day events. Of course around here we need to holiday to celebrate with this kind of style…

The thought behind a beautiful mood board like this is that it should be the starting point of inspiration for your wedding day. Something to share with your vendors, family and friends or whoever is helping you plan your wedding. We share these boards with you to help you along in your process and vision… but by all means please compile your own! Let us know if you end up planning your event based on one of our boards ~ we’d love to hear about it!
