The South is known for its delicious honey like Tupelo and Orange Blossom to name a few.  Here are a few sweet ideas for a honeybee inspired wedding.

How perfect are these invitations?  And we love the bee brooch on this bouquet!

We would fill these honeycomb ceramic vases with bright yellow flowers and use them as centerpieces.  You could serve cakes made in honeycomb molds as well! The yellow and black dresses from Eshakti would be great  for bridesmaids.

These little gold bee studs are so adorable and could be worn by both the bride and her bridesmaids.  We would wear them long after the wedding too!

This bee cutout place card is so creative in the way it is displayed perched on a wine glass. And of course you would have to have honey for favors!

The title of this posts says it all. Today we are inspired by Spanish moss and oak trees. Two Southern landscape staples that stretch from Texas all the way to the coasts of the Carolinas.

The wood grain band on these oak motif invitations adds texture and enhances the ‘carved initials’ image. These tags also bear the oak tree motif and an antiqued look.

This oak draped mantle is so simply elegant. Spanish moss can be tucked into all areas of your decor including around centerpieces or food displays like this candy bar. Or you could place your cake, desserts or other food on these trunk pedestals and tuck moss around the bases. If your budget permits you must serve Silver Oak wine (it is divine).

This is a beautiful example of Spanish moss tucked around centerpieces. The Spanish draped arbor creates a beautiful ceremony setting. The light fixture hanging from the tree in this cozy seating area is so chic.

It would be easy as pie to make these string light filled mason jars.

Speaking of string lights, how gorgeous is this light lined tree at night? You could also opt to hang lanterns instead or as well!

Important to Know: Do not touch or take live Spanish moss off of trees. Even though it is gray – it is still living and is host to many little critters (chiggers/red bugs) that will make you wish you never touched the stuff. You can purchase Spanish moss for decorating at most craft stores very inexpensively. This Spanish moss will be very dry so make sure you use it carefully around anything that is flammable.

So we know the title is silly but we couldn’t resist incorporating Wiz Khalifa’s song (on our terms) and we’d be lying if we said we were not singing ‘gray and yellow’ to ourselves as we researched for this post.

And by now you have probably figured out that this post is about two of our favorite current wedding colors, gray and yellow!

Yellow bouquets really pop when matched with gray bridesmaids dresses. We love gray suiting for the gents as well.  Both of these lovely images were captured by Stephanie Williams Photography.

How perfect is this dessert bar? We love these sweet favors sealed with yellow and white striped ribbon, this simple two layer cake with white floral details and we had to feature these divine gray bridesmaids dresses.  Who would this dress not look beautiful on?  The great thing about gray is that it looks good with all skin tones. We refer it to the ‘neutral that’s nice.’

Set the stage by sending this unique wedding invitation.  You can have personalized wedding banners made to display a message of welcome or thanks. And this fascinator is stunning and could be worn in lieu of a veil.

There is something so dainty and feminine about lace.  It has always had a star role in bridal apparel but is now a huge trend in wedding decor as well. We found so many lace ideas that is was hard to narrow down our favorites.

This French inspired bridal cap is stunning. Monogrammed hankies are so sweet and perfect gifts for mothers, grandmothers and bridesmaids.  We love the way an heirloom handkerchief looks on a bouquet. This lace inspired bracelet would look beautiful for the wedding and could definitely be worn again afterwards.

Lace and mason jars as votives – Yes Please! And for cupcake liners. And for an inner envelope for invitations!

This invitation suite has a lace pattern in the great color scheme of peach and gray.  A lace clutch would be great for a bride or her stylish bridesmaids.

How clever is the idea of using a doily under a glass plate as a name card?  This cake is simply beautiful with the lace pattern to add texture and contrast. Even the popular trend of bunting can be combined with lace handkerchiefs to create a vintage look.

If you don’t want the lace bridal veil or just want something fun to wear at the reception you could opt for this lace and floral fascinator. These lace shoes are yet another fun bridal accessory.  We adore the detail in this Irish linen ring bearer pillow and handkerchief.  And because we love fans (its hot here and this is fashionable & functional) we had to include this battenburg lace version.

A Southern garden staple, zinnias are our inspiration today.  The bright fun flowers come in so many colors including orange, hot pink, yellow and magenta.  Known for their heat tolerance in hot Southern summers, zinnias can easily be picked and used for wedding flowers.

We love these cotton taffeta bridesmaids dresses from J.Crew.  They come in all of the same fabulous colors as zinnias. The fun zinnia tissue paper poms above all come from a great store called PomLove on Etsy.

The fabulous thing about zinnias is that because of the large blooms and variety in color, when simply placed in jars or made into bouquets– you still get a lot of variety and texture without adding any additional varieties of flowers or greenery.  Seed packets could be used as name cards, favors or even included or made into the invitation!

How gorgeous are these pink and orange linens with gold chivari chairs?  And we love these zinnia cocktail napkins.  We found zinnias everywhere including on this invitation. We You could even give little potted zinnias as favors.  How adorable!

Picnics mean gingham, over sized bright stripes, umbrellas, and vintage style blankets and quilts.  We were excited to work these ideas into a few wedding inspiration boards.

This actual picnic wedding was on the Ruffled Blog.  How simple and charming is the basket full of blankets?

We would have to include picnic tables somewhere.  We love these with the simple white lanterns.  An idea for food would be to create a boxed lunch station where guests will have choices. Pink gingham is an alternative to classic red picnic gingham.  We would mix and match the gingham with over sized pink stripes like those on this umbrella.

Picnics don’t have to be bland.  Check out the picnic vignette above with all of the bright colors.  A picnic drink station would not be complete without quilts.  We would include the fun striped paper straws with gingham flags.

Sometimes you really don’t know what’s out there until you take a good look.  This was definitely one of those times when we were inspired by a random idea and a quick search of the internet resulted in an unbelievable amount of data. Honestly, how much deer-inspired wedding materials can there be out there?  Well there was definitely more than we thought.  It all started with the invitation suite we found below on the Wedding Chicks blog.

With a few changes in color scheme we created a theme all our own. We hope you like it – we had a lot of fun with this one!

These ‘love deer’ invitations are woodland but chic and modern (we didn’t think it was possible either) and how perfect are these, “Thanks, Deer,” cards for thank you notes?    Dancing Deer makes a variety of other baked goods and it was hard for us to decide but for favors we would give Dancing Deer Bakery Old Fashioned Buttermilk Pancake and Waffle Mix – YUM!

This antler taper holder would look great nestled in with this rustic grouping of jars wrapped with twine and the tree ring table number. We couldn’t resist including this wooden doe and deer cake topper.

We would use the tree and deer decal above for the background of a photo booth wall.  If we had a dessert table we would try to incorporate these Spode woodland deer serving pieces. Check out this awesome tablescape with actual antlers incorporated into the centerpieces.

Celebrity Sidenote: Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton were wed under a floral adorned arch of antlers.
