Wedding Mood Board: Preppy with a Twist

wedding mood board preppy with a twist atlanta event planner

Designed to blend with the environment, this summer wedding is to take place at a lake. The green and blue hues fuse with the setting for a natural and relaxed look. A Lilly Pulitzer pattern look alike for the cake, stripes to add nautical touches, and a pant wedding gown that resembles a riding horse pant are all elements of a very preppy look. Having the bridesmaids wear both colors and pantsuits is definitely a modern twist to the more traditional look of the bridal party. This bride is modern, chic, and is ready to break the rules to make her big day as unique as it can get.

Don’t let your wedding put you in a twist! Start planning today.

Wedding Mood Board: Fun, Feathers, and Forever

Wedding Mood Board: Fun, Feathers, and Forever by Atlanta event planner Injinnyous.com

Laid back, free spirited, and fun! This bride is confident, independent, and self-expressive.

I love the versatility of this design in terms of venue matching. Because the design has rustic elements combined with blue tones, you can choose to have your event:

  • outside in a garden or a farm
  • an all out rustic venue such as a barn or log type venue
  • an old house or inn with dark wood architectural elements
  • an industrial venue

The overall ambiance is relaxed-chic. The feathers help create the natural and relaxed look and proves that you don’t need flowers to make a long lasting impression for your guests. This event is about being comfortable, having fun, and avoiding above all stuffiness. Go ahead! I dare you to replace the quintessential photo booth with some fun games instead!

Let this event be a feather in your cap.

Wedding Mood Board: French Provincial

Wedding Mood Board: French Provincial injinnyous.com Atlanta event planner

I have been thinking a lot about my Southern country brides lately. I am not sure why it is that they think that if you are a country bride you have to do things in a certain way and only that way (by certain way I mean burlap). Ok. Hear me out, don’t shoot me just yet! Just because you are doing your wedding in a barn or a farm that doesn’t mean that you have to go with burlap. If that is what you like then I support you, but I don’t want you to think that your options are limited because that is what everybody else does. There are so many other things that you can do in a rustic environment if you are creative.

Take this theme for example. I envision this wedding in a barn or a farm. Many barns here in Georgia for you to choose from! Lots of browns, toile, naked cake, and not one ounce of burlap to be found. Still very rustic, classy, and elegant. Another secret, elegant does not necessarily mean expensive if you have a good eye. You can compliment this theme with french provincial furniture. I promise you, if you live here in the South somebody in your family has a dresser or a table that resembles that style. If they don’t own one, go to Goodwill or to a thrift store and you will find it. The toile fabric you should also be able to find relatively inexpensive and create fantastic runners and/or overlays. That is a great project for grandma or one of those aunts that is dying to help you out. 🙂

Oh! By the way, this is not a boring party either. I imagine a “pommes frites” bar or a french toast bites station opening towards the end of the night as a surprise for the guests. None of those two bars are expensive either! Seriously, who is going to say no to french fries or french toast! No excuses to not have a one of a kind wedding.

Wedding Mood Board: Sweet as a Georgia Peach

Wedding Mood board: Sweet as a Georgia Peach

Southern and traditional. This bride is proud. Her heritage and Southern customs have determined who she is.  She is gracious, kind, hospitable, and cares deeply about her family, a true Southern Belle. This bride is looking to integrate home into her wedding in a very special and unique way.

I see this event in a peach orchard and/or a barn. This wedding mixes rustic and modern traditional elements to create a custom design. Her signature cocktail is Peaches and Cream Martini and as party favor she sends her guests off with home made peach cobbler moonshine or maybe peach honey. Can you imagine a complete dinner menu around peaches? So many options. The best part is that because you saved a bit on the venue rental you can bring in an amazing and innovative catering company to create a custom menu just for you!

Can you imagine the save the dates? So much fun to be had with this theme! For more ideas you can see the whole Pinterest board here.

Hope ya’ll have a peachy time!

Blues Behind, New Year Ahead

Blues Behind New Year Ahead.jpg

Festive and extravagant are the best words to describe this new year eve’s party.  Gueridon service, a champagne bar, entertainers for the guests, a lively band, and fireworks. What else can you ask for?

This party is all about metallics on metallics because there is not a more appropiate time for metallics than new year. At Injinnyous, we are getting tired of the black and gold or silver and white new year parties, so we decided to change it up a little with sapphire blue instead of black. I see this host having a couple of changes of clothes. Maybe after midnight. How fun!

It’s ok. Don’t be blue, you can have a nice party too.

Wedding Mood Board: 50’s Wifey-To-Be

Wedding Mood Board: 50s wifey to be. Atlanta event planner. injinnyous.com

Ladylike chic! This bride is inspired by the 50’s era. Old time traditions and values are important to her. She has embraced femininity and has a flawless sense of style. This bride is a family girl at heart and as a “wifey- to-be” can’t wait to flaunt the actual Mrs. title.

The inspiration for this mood board is the always elegant and beautiful Grace Kelly. Mid century modern furniture, velvet, and modesty compliment the vision. I see this bride dancing the most romantic first dance to Frank Sinatra’s “The Way you Look Tonight”. If you feel brave, you can take dance lessons with your hubby to be and learn how to dance the foxtrot!

If you are looking for a decade…nt wedding you have come to the right place.

Wedding Mood Board: Corpse Bride Inspired Halloween Wedding

Wedding Mood Board: Halloween Corpse Bride Atlanta Event Planning

I don’t know about you but one of my favorite holidays is Halloween. Halloween is that one day of the year where pretty much anything goes. Exaggeration, taboos, political correctness is all ignored in the name of having fun. I’m assuming that if you have chosen October 31st as your wedding day, you are an out there bride and I’m already in love with you!

For this bride it is all about the drama of the event. She wants to have fun and wants her guests to enjoy themselves by creating a light atmosphere. No, it’s not an oxymoron. You can create a light atmosphere in a somber setting due to the nature of the holiday.

The inspiration for this wedding is the Tim Burton’s animated movie, The Corpse Bride. It is a beautiful story about true love, kindness, and selflessness. Victor’s (main character) wedding vows are absolutely lovely. Any bride would want her groom to recite those to her.  I can also see a bride walking down the aisle to Victor’s piano solo. It sounds a bit like Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata, so you know it will melt everybody’s hearts. I envision this wedding in an old mansion with dark wood paneling and glorious wood staircases and chandeliers.

This wedding also works well for a Gothic bride with very traditional parents as she can give her parents the conservative wedding they are looking for, while incorporating her style in a tasteful way. What a super fun wedding!

Don’t let your wedding planning details waste away and die.
