Inspiration and creativity can’t be contained to a specific person, location or time, so today is the first guest blogger post by a lady who caught my eye for her innovative interpretations of classic wedding themes. I am delighted to introduce Aimée Fulling from Boutique Inspirations and her interpretation of Parisian Elegance.

Bienvenue! I’m very pleased to introduce my latest inspiration board – Parisian Elegance. Boutique Inspirations have covered Winter and Wonderland Chic recently but I wanted an escape from the cold British weather so I decided to let my mind wander to my most favourite city, Paris!
I love all things French – the people, the language, the city, the food, the wine (you must LOVE the wine!) and the style.
For me it is very true that Paris has a certain je ne sais quoi – I could visit again and again and I will never tire of the place, I will always be in love with the city. A wedding in France would either be a chic city affair in Paris or it would be a romantic visit to a stunning chateau!
I can happily imagine marrying in the city and having a fantastic reception on the Seine passing the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triophme and Notre Dame whilst sipping Champagne and celebrating with family and friends. Guests would dine in a space which was delicately styled with soft pastel colours and the tables would hold stunning centre-pieces.
My Chateau vision is a little more formal. The dress would be rather more intricate for this style of wedding, perhaps with some lace detail. A fabulous overnight stay at the Chateau would ensure I was fully refreshed for the day ahead. Guests would arrive up a sweeping gravel drive and be greeted with a grand entrance which would ensure some stunning photography.
I hope my inspiration board give you a little taste of what a wedding in Paris could be like – a truly stunning and memorable occasion!!
Thanks to Aimée for sharing with us her Parisian Elegance wedding inspiration board – I hope you enjoyed and would love your feedback on what makes Parisian Elegance for you.
If you would like to contribute an inspiration board or style ideas, I would love to discuss.
