I haven’t made an inspiration board in quite awhile but I came up with an idea that I simply had to try out. I wanted to take some of my favorite archived honeymoon travel posts and create wedding inspiration boards around the locales. For my first “destination wedding” board, I chose one of my all-time fave vaca spots – Tropea, Italy – and selected images from CB’s archived real weddings and rehearsal dinners to complement the color palette and vibe:
The vibe: I wanted to create a preppy & polished look but one that didn’t feel stuffy. I wanted the details to be on point but the overall feel to be laid back and beachy.
Travel the inspiration board: Want to visit Tropea, Italy now? Read my honeymoon guide to Tropea – it’s loaded with personal pics I took and all of my top tips I learned while vacationing in the Calabrian region.
Extra ideas for an Italian Riviera wedding: While J&I were staying in Tropea, we spent a good amount of time collecting gorgeous seaglass and Italian tiles that had washed up on the shore. These little treasures would be perfect in glass jars to dot reception tables.
