Pale Yellow Summer Wedding

Today's post was inspired by the stephanotis flower. Simple, delicate and elegant, this bloom is frequently used as an extraneous flower in wedding bouquets but why not use it as your main flower inspiration. One of my first finds for today's post was this yellow wedding cake which features white stephanotis flowers so I decided to go with a very pale yellow and white color scheme.

I love this hair style that features stephanotis flowers around a classic bun. Incorporating flowers definitely makes your updo unique and personalized. Carry the flower through into your bridal bouquet as well and mix with pale yellow flowers such as orchids and carnations. Have the groom wear a boutonniere made of similar flowers.

For your invitation, select this yellow floral letterpress invitation by Dauphine Press.

At the reception, opt for simple clear vases that put the focus on the beauty of the stephanotis flower [photo from Brides]. Set a white favor box decorated with white paper flowers above each place setting. Hang simple white chandeliers from the ceiling to help set the sweet yellow and white mood.

Lastly, serve a signature cocktail such as this limoncello cooler cocktail. Cheers!
