Lime & Strawberry Wedding

Today's post features a lime and strawberry wedding! I was inspired by a post on Faye and Greer, one of my favorite blogs even though it is no longer updated. The post, Preppy Polka Dots, features one couples' strawberry and lime wedding and the custom work created for their special day. The invitation, place cards and table cards (plus a bunch of other stuff not shown here) was designed by Ceci New York.

Forgo a traditional guest book for these strawberry-colored cards with envelopes. Have guests write a little note to the bride and groom and place inside a clear container. You could even ask guests to write a note for different parts in the couples' life. For instance, a guest would put 'When having a baby' on the envelope and put a tip or advice on the card inside for when the couple approaches that situation. The couple will enjoy opening these long after the wedding.

For a cute detailed touch, add lime and strawberry ribbon to the couples' toasting glasses. This is a simple DIY trick to customize the glasses if you don't want to invest in a pre-done set.

Lastly, for the wedding cake, try lime ribbon at the base of each layer combined with strawberry polka dots.
