Artsy Fartsy Watercolor Wedding

Why hello there! Today's wedding theme inspiration comes right to you from my iphone case!

I love this dreamy watercolor scene and think that it is the perfect jumping off point to design an artsy fartsy wedding! This time around, I'm going to walk you step by step through planning your watercolor wedding in pictures!

What's the first thing your guest receives to set the tone of your wedding? That's right, invitations!

1, 2, 3, 4

In this case, the watercolor theme is quite literal. Any of these beauties will let your guests know right away what a treat they're in for! My personal fav is #2 because it shares a color palette with my phone case!

Once all of your guests have been invited and are counting down the days, you and your groom will need something extra special to wear!

I am absolutely in love with that beautiful, dreamy gown. It feels very artsy and ethereal. As for your man, if he's bold enough to don a pink suit, go for it! It adds a touch of whimsy to your affair. If not, I think light grey works as well. And if you're the bold one?

These are mighty fine! Particularly the flowy number on the left! Green not your color? This is a good wedding to rock a blush dress!

Of course, don't forget about your bridesmaids!

The ombre effect plays nicely with the watercolor theme. And don't forget to get them something lovely to dry away their happy tears! In fact, you could get a bunch of these lovelies and place them at the entrance to your ceremony for your guests!

To accent you and your ladies' beauty, you'll need a bunch of flowers to hold onto.

Try a look with many different blooms in various shades of the same color.

Get a Monet inspired manicure! And decorate a fun space to have your "first look" pictures taken.

Ok, you're ready to walk down the aisle!

This art gallery is the perfect venue for your artsy soiree! The different colored chairs really add a punch of color and fun!

Congratulations! You're finally Mr. and Mrs.! How will your friends and family find their seats?

These watercolored escort cards are an easy DIY.

As your guests enter the reception area, they will gasp in amazement if it looks like this:

Fancy a nice head table backdrop? This one is made from rolled up colored paper!

This cool lounge area hearkens back to invitation #2.

It's time to cut the cake!!

I love the fun cut outs of the left cake! But the right cake screams watercolor. Both are so wonderful you can't go wrong!

Time to dance the night away bathed in romantic candle light. 

Good work! You just pulled off the perfect Artsy Fartsy Watercolor wedding! Hope you had fun!
