Preppy Summer Inspiration

This inspiration board is for Meredith's older brother and his fiance who are to be wed in Chicago next summer. I wanted to create a board that felt fresh and modern while still retaining some old school prep.

The color palette is melon, light blue, navy blue and red. Red white and blue invitations from Mr. Boddington's studio are a must. I'm loving this color melon, perfect for roses and dhalias mixed with red blooms. This would be a gorgeous table on a pale sherbet linen with a navy napkin and Mr. Boddington inspired menu card. Seersucker suits with red ties for the groom and groomsmen and J. Crew light blue dresses for the ladies, all with melon bouquets and boutonnieres.

Congratulations Chris & Tara!
