    Gold + Black Wedding Inspiration

    Today’s guest poster is my dear friend Chrissy with a color palette that is one of my absolute favorites! Enjoy 🙂

    Well hello there Oh Lovely Day readers! Chrissy from The Perfect Palette here! Just stopping by to share a little color inspiration while Chandra is away! Looking for wedding day colors that are classic, elegant, and all kinds of pretty? Shades of black and gold always have me at hello. And I’m hoping you can see why?

    I think what I love most is that there’s really no shortage of pretty possibilities when it comes to bringing this lovely color palette to life! Like this beautiful lantern send off for instance. Nothing could capture this color palette better than the gorgeous glow of these lanterns as they contrast against the dark, night sky. Oh, and I can’t go without mentioning this beauty of a cake. Goodness! That almost looks too pretty to eat! Am I right?

    So tell me… what sort of colors evoke a classic elegance in your mind? And might you use a classic palette like this one for your upcoming wedding and/or party? I’d love to hear your ideas!

    {Inspiration Board} Black + Gold Glam Wedding

    black and gold glam wedding inspiration from oh lovely day

    {palette} gold, black, and ivory paired with patterns and sparkles.
    {inspiration} glamorous, fashion-forward, modern with a hint romantic vintage, this wedding is for any season but best for a more formal evening wedding.

    so, do you love this color combo as much as I do?  The sparkly gold mixed with the graphic black and white patterns is pretty much perfection in my book.  I want a room in my home to match this board!

    •  Three things: 1. You've got one day left to enter my @mywildbird sling giveaway, so head over to my blog (link in profile) and tag your friends. 2. I was featured on @loyal_hana blog as part of their motherhood series, so if you want to give it a read and hear about my typical (hot mess) day or how I (don't) balance work and mothering head to their profile to find the link to their site. I pretty much live in their nursing-friendly clothes and was honored to be featured. 3. Charlie took this picture (and basically directed me for the shot) and it makes me really really happy   Putting the finishing touches on the boys' bedroom and had to stop to admire the magic that the morning light and their @babyjives mobile was making. ✨☁️⭐️❤️✨#charlieandcalsroomredo
       Can a person be your happy place? Because I'm pretty certain that Quincy is mine ☺️✨ #quincyrhys #thatdimpletho  This week was a rough one. I feel like I say that every week but this one really was. Today alone had me at my breaking point. All three of my kids seemed hell bent on driving me crazy. Quincy literally wouldn't let me put him down or leave the room without a major scream-cry fest. He rode around on the fuss bus allllll day. Tropical storm Calvin left destruction in his wake everywhere he went (if you follow me on snap/stories you got a little sampling but that was nowhere near the extent of it). At one point I went into a room away from my kids and sat in a chair and cried. Within three minutes one of them found me (of course) gave me a hug, and we were all better (except Calvin -- I think this is his permanent state ). This photo is my version of thinking happy thoughts. Bougainvillea vibes ✌️️✨
