    Dia De Los Muertos Wedding Inspiration

    dia de los muertos wedding inspiration | oh lovely day

    Happy Halloween! Since Dia de los Muertos is almost here I thought I’d put together a little Dia de los Muertos wedding inspiration for you. I’ve always wanted to throw a Dia de los Muertos birthday party for myself (my birthday shares the day), but I’m not the kind of person to throw myself birthday parties, especially now that my son’s birthday is a week after mine and I’m busy planning that celebration. And I’m pretty sure my husband wouldn’t get it and execute as I imagine it should be, so this will have to do. It would make for a fun and festive wedding, wouldn’t it?

    And speaking of Halloween, what is everyone dressing up like this year? You can follow along on instagram to see my family’s Halloween fun. Have a safe and fun one!

    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!

    {Color Crush} Indigo Wedding

    color crush on indigo by oh lovely day

    I’ve been majorly crushing on some indigo lately.  It actually started years ago with an eye shadow.  It was love at first sight and ever since I’ve been obsessed with that deep inky shade of blue.  Then I saw this on instagram from Kristina of Lovely Morning and 100 Layer Cake and my obsession was reignited.  I’m now determined to dye every white tee I own indigo (and a few of Charlie’s too, since they don’t stay white anyways).  Then I thought, “how cool would this be, translated into wedding inspiration!?”  But first…

    I love the shades of indigo and how unique each pattern of the tie dye can be.  And the color and patterns inspire other translations of pattern and palette.  It made me think of cobalt blue china, of denim, of vintage bottles.  Of all the things you could bring into a wedding.

    Just think of the possibilities with an indigo wedding!  You could go modern or rustic, vintage or classic.  But I really envision it as an outdoor summer wedding.  What about you?  Crushing on indigo too?
