Vibrant Turquoise and Magenta Coastal Wedding Inspiration

If you don't say "Yeah, Color!" by the end of scrolling through this feature, then we aren't sure what's going to get you excited for bright and poppy wedding inspiration! This creative team swam in delightful turquoises, luscious magentas, and radiant purples for this fresh modern spin on coastal celebrations, and we are loving it. From marbelized stationery with gold traditional calligraphy, fish scale-patterned plates reminiscent of a mermaid's tail, to a rainfall of delicate tissue paper flowers that serves as the sweetheart table backdrop, there is everything to grab your attention in all the fun wedding ways.

Captured by Tashena Shaw Photography and coordinated by Misty Saves the Day, these contemporary wedding ideas transformed into an intimate beach vignette at The Water Table in Virginia Beach. With artfully arranged pink blooms, a twisty barnacle-textured cake with washes of teal and gold flecks, a pampering getting ready studio on wheels from Dove & Daisy Spa, and a modern blue fitted suit, the bride and groom can celebrate in colorful chic style!

5 Unexpected Things You'll Face in the Last Stretch of Wedding Planning

Things are always going to pop up at the last minute when it comes to any kind of event that involves more than two people, and that especially goes for a wedding day! We are so excited to have Meghan of OFD Consulting today giving the scoop on the top five things any bride or groom can expect (or not expect) on the months and days leading up to the big one. So grab your notebook to jot down some important details and get ready to learn from past experience!

Vintage Chic with a Hint of Pink

Inspired by classic hues and a time gone by, bridal sessions are always a special tradition for southern brides looking to create heirlooms and family memories. Captured by J. McBurney Photography and coordinated by Raise The Ruth Events, vintage love is all throughout this sweet session.

In a champagne and ivory lace wedding gown with a keyhole back, the bride holds a simple hand-tied pale blush pink rose bouquet at the historic Francis Land House in Virginia Beach. Romantic aesthetic is alive and well with golden candlesticks and a feminine velvet tufted chair, and it'll make anyone swoon for timeless beauty!

Walk down the Wild Aisle: Modern Safari Wedding Must Haves

Safari weddings are so much more than tiger stripes and leopard prints! By weaving in African-inspired prints and textures, you can add a little bit of the wild side into an elegant celebration. Whether you're an animal lover, have fond memories of a Serengeti adventure, or just love the more rustic modern look, we hope to inspire you with our favorite safari finds! Curated from Etsy, we scoured the web to find our most stylish faves for any bride or groom who appreciates sophisticated fierceness.

Romance amongst the Roses

In true modern day romance style, it was love at first sight for Adam when he swiped right on his dating app when Alicia's photo appeared. These two lovebirds are not only brilliant and beautiful, but they exude life (as you can tell by their sunshiny smiles that gives us so many feels!). Their "thing," as Alicia calls it, are their moments of being goofy and laughing together. And we have to agree those are the best kinds of moments in every relationship!

With Sarah Street Photography in tow, Alicia and Adam chose Norfolk Botanical Garden as the setting for their engagement session because it is one of their favorite places in Hampton Roads, specifically the well-loved rose garden... which would make sense considering Adam's proposal because -- get your heart melt ready -- their proposal included a helicopter and a single rose. Pack it up, internet, we're done with all the swoons today.

Love It Up with Town Center of Virginia Beach and Tidewater and Tulle this Summer

We can't hold onto our confetti any longer! Tidewater and Tulle and Town Center of Virginia Beach are tying the knot for the first annual "Love It Up" wedding event on August 12, 2017!

Riverfront Inspired Bridal Styling Ideas

Along the Mattaponi River just outside of Richmond, we get a little riverfront gorgeousness in the styling of a beautiful bridal party at North Point Plantation. Inspired by moody blues, dashes of blush pink, and greenery for days, Images by Windy, Stag & Lily, and the entire creative team wanted to showcase the beauty and wardrobe of a Virginia bride and her bridesmaids with these stylish ideas!

With layers of chiffon and tulle, the bridesmaid dresses mimic the waves of the waters while the bride's gown perfectly complements her ladies with a plunging neckline and delicate lace shoulder embroidery. The makeup looks are natural and soft with berry-colored lips and the hair styles are loose curl and simple braids for the outdoorsy setting -- something that can be inspiring for any kind of wedding any time of year!

Beyond the wardrobe, we especially love the extra wedding details like a ruffled wedding cake with blue thistles, historic venue backdrop, and bright green cabbage in the bridal bouquet!
