Montauk Point Inspiration

From intern Shekinah:
So this week, I stumbled across  Cloud Nove's Invitation Suites (I know.. how have I waited this long to find out how awesome these are?) and fell in love with the Montauk Point Suite. These invitations are GORGEOUS and are perfect for any of you who love that clean, summery, nautical feel. 

First and foremost, I think the apple green pop against the navy blue is just fantastic. In fact, the green and navy color combo is one of my favorite for spring and summer. Then, the white is added as an additional contrast (and it also gives you easy options for bouquets, table linens, etc). Make sure that the rest of your decorations and fashion reflect only these colors. The clean effect is immediately lost if any other colors are added into the scheme.

You can either go with navy blue bridesmaid dresses, or for something a little different, check out the green seersucker dresses from Coren Moore. For flowers, think white for you and tight green bouquets for the bridesmaids (you can see how the green looks against the navy here). Groomsmen attire is pretty easy- navy suits with a navy and green striped tie. As for your dress,   a gown with a clean silhouette and pockets is the perfect combination of preppy and feminine. 

Finally, find ways to subtle ways to incorporate the nautical theme. You may not want to have anchors and lifeboat preserves on your tables, but details as simple as tying napkins or bouquets with nautical ribbon or having your bridesmaids don  nautical-inspired necklaces   are nice nods to the theme without going overboard.
