As much as I love to plan + brand weddings, I rarely find a motif that would make me want to have MY wedding day all over again. This one may have done it. When I discovered Emily Sanford's gorgeous Modern Prints in Water Collection on Spoonflower, I was immediately in love. I couldn't stop thinking about planning a wedding based on this collection. I love all the different shades, the pops of gold and the fun, modern print. This collection is also available in removable wall paper and gift wrapping paper so the opportunities for incorporating the print into your wedding are endless. Here are some ideas I pulled that I think would go lovely with this fabric. What are your thoughts?

When I saw this gorgeous Ozzy Garcia
photograph, this native San Antonian's heart almost burst with love. I could not wait to create a board inspired by the photo.
I love when a bride incorporates something from her heritage into her wedding and since Texas and the Spanish culture go hand in hand, you can draw inspiration from almost anywhere you look. The Bride
This wedding decor is the perfect blend of fiesta meets romance. And since many the trends are shifting from vintage, shabby-chic, burlap-clad events to a more Old European feel, it's perfect for the bride who wants something different from the wedding all of her friends have already thrown. The Inspiration
The key to keeping your wedding more romantic feeling is the color palette. We went with softer, more desert-inspired hues for this look.
We love the bold patterns of Mexican tiles, and bright embroidery from Mexican dresses. We love this dress for a bride having a more casual event or the perfect bridesmaid dress for a wedding that is more formal. Serve your guests up bright glasses of homemade agua frescas, munch on Mexican wedding cookies and feast on a buffet of sizzling fajitas.
The idea of using dry pinto beans as jar fillers is pure genius. It is visually interesting, subtly hints towards the theme and is just the right shade to compliment the table settings, cacti and succulents. (Not to mention budget friendly!)

Hello! I'm Jenn, the editor of Woodlands Bride
. Welcome to the product of two of my passions: beautiful weddings + graphic design.
I love dinnerplate dahlias, inspirational quotes, lace, and I never pass up a slice of wedding cake (or groom's cake). I am a sucker for bow ties. I find beauty in most everything and I love helping brides plan their weddings. It's their own little fairy tale come to life.
I would love to meet you!

Bet you have never looked at a raw piece of Salmon and thought of it as inspiration for your wedding? Well, now that you have, don't you think it makes a nice wedding color? Paired with yellow, gold or even a pale blue-green, we are loving the softness, or "rawness", of these colors together. Thanks, Burnett's Boards
, for the inspiration
Burnett's Boards writes: This pale (almost neon) yellow and salmon wedding inspiration board is a great color palette for either spring or summer weddings. When it all comes together like this the overall effect is a trendy pastel vibe that you really can’t go wrong with.
The colors in the bridal bouquet and the cake are reminiscent of a beautiful sunset and I’m also loving the striped motif in the picture of the bridal shoes and on the earrings!
We love these colors paired with Salmon - shabby chic and romantic!

Happy 4th of July from all of us at Woodlands Bride! The fourth is a celebration of our independence as well as a good reason to get together with family and friends - with food, fireworks and parades! In honor of our country pride, we have put together a few patriotic wedding details that celebrate the land that we love.
Patriotic Ideas We Love:
Coke bottles: WeddingsABeautiful, Letters to Troops: Holidayhelpings.com
What's more 'All American' than Coca Cola? Try personalized coke bottles at your wedding event with red, or blue, straws attached! We absolutely adore this idea to have a Letters to Troops
station at your wedding or event. What better way to show your patriotism? Even better if you have a soldier/veteran in your family.
Don't forget to check out our Red, White + Blue Pinterest board
for tons of ideas for a festive wedding, rehearsal dinner or engagement party!
Happy almost summer! By now, you probably know our obsession with Burnett's Boards
. The blog is a great, great - did we say great? - resource for new brides choosing their wedding color palette. And anyone looking for some unique wedding inspiration!
Today's color inspiration: bright spring/summer colors (think bright yellow, coral, orange and pink's.) We love how versatile this color palette is. Planning a fall wedding? Just add a little ruby red! Don't want it too bold? Soften it with pastels.

Hello! I hope you had a great weekend! Friday
, I mentioned that Pantone had announced Emerald so the whole world is channeling the color green right now. So, I think it is only fitting that today we feature this beautiful inspiration board filled with wonderfully soothing shades of green. Green represents harmony and renewal which is fitting for a wedding, don't you think?
I love when I leave a wedding feeling that I know the bride and groom a little better because the wedding is full of details that share personal details about the bride and groom as individuals and as a couple. I love the details of this foodie-themed wedding. Aside from the sunny yellow and white palette and incredible tablescapes, the guests noshed on some of the couple's favorite treats.
