I’ve met so many Summer 2011 brides lately! This year is really flying by, and those newly engaged ladies will be getting married before we know it. So in that spirit, we will be showcasing an “Inspiration-Board-a-Week” series to give those brides just kicking off their planning process a place to start.

I used the Style Me Pretty wedding blog (it’s a must-see for brides, vendors, and wedding lovers alike!) to make this inspiration board of lemon-y yellow and spearmint with pops of oranges. To me, no other color combination defines summer like this one. I picture the wedding taking place in a field and serving lots of lemonade (or maybe a Frosted Orange for an Atlanta twist!) and featuring organic citrus-and-flower centerpieces on long, rustic tables.

Yellow, green, and orange remind me of lemonade, freshly cut grass, and summer sunsets. What’s your favorite summer color combo?
