Our latest wedding inspiration board is part-fairy tale, part-rustic chic and all the stuff that dreams are made of. There’s an otherworldly charm to a wedding in the woods, a place that is simultaneously earthy and ethereal. Yellow accents add warmth and cheer. We love the way smooth white details, like a ribbon cake and table linens, contrast with the pleasing patterns and textures of wood grain.

Isn’t it romantic? Enhancing the warm glow of a vineyard setting, champagne and gold are a lovely match for a winery wedding. Shimmery bridesmaid dresses universally flatter. Gilded details add richness and royalty to wedding reception tables. Invitations in gold celebrate the sunlight that illuminates the grapevines and makes them grow. The only thing more radiant than the look of this wedding, is the bride.

Inspired by the love found in nature, our latest vineyard wedding mood board marries the romance of the wine country with the charm of brightly colored, tiny parrots known as love birds. These affectionate creatures are known for forming close bonds, in many cases mating with their partners for life. Celebrate the intoxicating effects of love by combining a wine theme with love birds – a symbol of coupling so perfect only nature could devise it!

Dreamy and otherworldly, muted pastel colors inspired our latest vintage vineyard wedding mood board. Lavender feels romantic, pretty and understated. We love the idea of incorporating a swirl design throughout, which so beautifully echoes the curving vines of the wine country. Wood, burlap and wrought iron details ground the lighter elements and keep this bygone era-inspired wedding firmly rooted in the present.

Is there anything more romantic than a wedding under an oak tree? It was easy to find inspiration in this symbol of strength and longevity for our latest mood board. Though a great match for a wedding anytime of year, an oak tree-themed event seems particularly appropriate for fall. We chose autumnal reds, browns and gold – a rich color palette that brings out the glamour of a rustic setting.

Best known as a symbol for the French monarchy, the Fleur de Lis is simply translated as Flower of the Lily. This three-pronged flower is also associated with the state of Louisiana, the city of New Orleans and its football team, the New Orleans Saints. With its rich, traditional feel, a Fleur de Lis motif is a great match for a vineyard, castle, French-themed or New Orleans wedding. Its sophisticated opulence transforms any event into a truly royal affair!

The olive branch makes a lovely wedding motif evoking the hilly Italian region of Tuscany where some of the world’s best Chianti is made. It is, of course, also a symbol of peace. Whether you are having a wedding at a vineyard or a farm, an olive branch theme will bring rustic warmth to your event. Use olive tree sprigs as table decoration and in flower arrangements. Use the color olive for bridesmaid dresses and groomsmen details. Olive oil favors catch the light beautifully and make treasured gifts. However you use this ancient fruit plant, it’s beauty and meaning is sure to make a special contribution to your day of celebration.

From plum to indigo, the range of purple grape colors is the inspiration behind our latest mood board. Celebrate the different shades of this royal hue by playing with the ombre trend. Ombre cakes and bridesmaid dresses look fresh and pretty this season. Plum-colored cocktails are sophisticated and playful. A vase with cascading dark blue grapes – so simple and yet so decadent – is a real vineyard wedding show-stopper!

We love the romance of a wine barrel room wedding reception. Being surrounded by casks of wine at various stages of development will make your guests feel like they have been invited into an uncommon experience, much like witnessing the union of two very special individuals. Romantic string lighting adds a glow to a cave-like room. Incorporate grapes and vines into your decor to keep elements of nature in play and use deep burgundy and purple hues to heighten the mystery. A bright accent color like yellow adds pleasing contrast and keeps the look cheerful and celebratory.
