When friends Kevin and Lauren announced their engagement, I couldn't have been happier for them. This couple had spent 5 years, 3 states, graduate programs, and so much more together, and they are some of my favorite people. So when I saw that deer-in-headlights look in Lauren's eyes as I began to ask about save the dates and floral arrangements, I knew it was my "friend in the industry" duty to help a sister out!
We stated with a random piece of inspiration from something they love (Mad Men), half a dozen buzzwords (romantic, chic, fun, vintage, cool, and elegant), and some basic necessities (walking distance between ceremony and reception, giving people a "taste" of Colorado). This board is about the real work of finding inspiration that works for real people! We'll continue to grow, edit, change the board as we go, as plans are made, contracts are signed, minds are changed, but hopefully this will give you an idea of how to get started on your very own inspiration board.
