Board No. 21: Orange Pop

{Click image to enlarge!}

Here's something totally different from our usual Peach & Pearl fare for Day 2 of inspiration board week: a bright, modern party filled with pops of orange, black, and white. Graphic ranunculus on an otherwise simple white cake, plastic chairs pulled up to reception tables, and a typewriter guest book bring this look together. This shade of orange is perfect for a July or August wedding, I think.

The Details
First row, left to right:
Portrait by {whitebox weddings}. Use an antique typewriter for a guest book: insert a long sheet of paper, then instruct guests to type out their well wishes one at a time {via Brooklyn Bride}. For a high-impact but low-cost cake design, order a modern three-tiered cake decorated judiciously with sugar couture flowers {via Wedding Style}.

Second row:
Shoe shots are so much more fun when you're wearing a color that pops {photo by Kate Headley}. Especially if your wedding is in the summer, laying out fans on ceremony seats is a thoughtful touch for your guests {Hatch Creative Studio}.

Third row:
Even a modern palette can incorporate an old-school veil {photo by Meg Smith}. Chic satin frocks are cool in more ways than one (I kill myself!) {via All Things Lovely}. Even roses look mod when gathered in a slim, tight sheath {photo by James Carson via We Met in a Bar}. The famous Ann Wood cake toppers, in their black and white outfits, would look lovely on perched on any top tier {photo by Our Labor of Love}.

Fourth row:
Graphic, textured flowers pair well with a shiny metallic bowl in this centerpiece {The Knot}. A last detail to nail down? Finding some stunning orange architecture to incorporate into your pre- or post-ceremony portraits {photo by Meg Smith}.
