Guest Post: Postcards and Pretties

Today we have the amazing and fabulous Chris from Postcards and Pretties. She to me is the queen of inspiration boards and I am so honored to have her sharing on the blog! I'll let her take it away!

Hi... I’m Chris from Postcards and Pretties and I’m so happy to be guest posting on Glamour & Grace while Megan is away.

Megan asked if I would share with you my process for creating here goes.  Ever since I began blogging I look at the things in a different light ...I'm inspired by everything around me {I especially love it when non "weddingish" things make their way to my boards. One simple and single photo could be the key part of my inspiration board. Once I choose the image I determine what the color palette should be and the story or the details of that particular wedding. 

For this summer wedding board, I wanted to use bright white as the main focus with sprinkles of bold and fresh colors mixed's a great way to make the colors pop. Different colored rainbow dresses are a great way to allow your bridesmaids to choose not only their favorite color but also one that works well with their skin color too.

  1. I don't even know where to start... Chris is the inspirational boards queen... so anything she does is exquisite and unique... she inspires me EVERY single day since i met her!... and this board prove me right!!!

  2. First of all I am not going to tell Chris, again, how much I ADORE everything about her. If I say how creatively talented she is, she probably won't believe me. If I tell her that she inspires not just me but everyone all the time, she just might call me a liar...:-) This board and Chris is amazing. I'm glad to call her friend. How nice for her to guest "star" on your blog! xo

  3. Chris!! Love this board such great bright colors!!

  4. OMG...that butterfly bouquet is SO pretty! I mean seriously pretty! Love it girl! ;D
