Roomboard: In the Navy!

I was talking with one of my coworkers about my upcoming navy blue/mustard craft room, and she mentioned her daughter wanted to have Navy Blue bridesmaid dresses in her wedding with pink accents. I had actually used someone's navy blue wedding as inspiration for my room, so I thought why not mock up a wedding to match the room?

Now to break down the mood board:
  1. Invitation. I went with a very vintage look for this pretend wedding, and the bird and scrolls drew me in. It has almost a tattoo look to it, but it had the perfect colors to match the wedding. It will also help tie together some key details down the road.
  2. Navy blue silk bridesmaids dresses of course!
  3. Wedding Dress. I love the look of the shrug with the old 40's style hat and netting. The short cut of the dress would work best in an outdoor/casual wedding. The shrug would work nicely with a simple floor length wedding gown as well for a more formal event.
  4. The cake. I used vintage, dot patterned milk glass as inspiration. The navy blue ribbon on the cake would tie together the flower girl and ringbearer details below, and of course match the overall navy blue theme. The flowers are similar in color to the bouquets, but a different flower that would work better as a cake topper, pink and yellow roses. The metal pan it's sitting on was actually silver. I edited the color to an aged brass shade to make it more antique. The scroll on the pan pulls from the invitation.
  5. Plastic cups can look elegant next to a pretty aged brass vase with delicate pink and yellow roses on a navy blue table cloth. Frame some pictures of the bride and groom and family and friends in gold frames around this set up.
  6. Groom and Groomsmen. Navy blue suits, soft, silk ties, and orangey/yellow/pink calla lillies to match the bouquets.
  7. Bouquets. Orangey/yellow/pink/ivory calla lillies, tied with navy blue ribbon and gold charms hanging from the bows.
  8. Card holder. Bird cage! See where the bird in the invitation came from now? Both screamed vintage to me, but tie themselves together. Pretty pink ribbon on top pulls from the men's ties.
  9. Table setting. Navy blue table linens, white chairs (pretty standard at most halls) and pink and yellow flowers trailing down the middle. White ceramic accessories pop against all the colors.
  10. Ring Bearer Pillow. White satin to match the bride and flower girl dresses, with a navy blue ribbon tied across it. Hang gold rings from the ribbons.
  11. Flower Girl Dress. White satin with a navy blue sash. Pink/yellow/ivory roses to tie into the drink table decoration and cake topper. For their basket, a birds nest or white bird cage would be adorable to drop petals from.

There you have it. A picture perfect vintage inspired wedding with navy blue, pink and yellow accents! Makes you want to walk down the aisle again, right? I sure do!
