Here’s another post for Summer 2011 brides, summer color enthusiasts, or bright color lovers. It’s our second Summer Inspiration board using the Style Me Pretty blog for our Inspiration-Board-Week series.

This week, I chose a color palette that would work well with lots of our classic Atlanta ballrooms. Summer is HOT in Atlanta, so ballrooms and indoor spaces are a great alternative to outdoor receptions. Many of the ballrooms have spaces for outdoor ceremonies or cocktail hours, so I thought of a color combination that worked well for bringing the outdoors inside: a sky blue, a bright pineapple yellow, and a light purple for pops of color in flowers, patterns, and jewelry.

I love the pattern on the plate and how it is replicated on the cake. The juxtaposition of that scrolling pattern next to the clean lines of the vases would work well in modernizing a ballroom space.

This jewelry from Etsy would also complement the color scheme and make any bride or bridesmaid stunning!
