[HOW TO] Create Inspiration Boards Using Pinterest to Plan Your Destination Wedding in Colorado

Welcome to the world of Pinterest.  Being big fans of progressive technology, we're happy to show you this fabulous online tool that will allow you to create inspiration boards for anything you choose.  It's in beta, meaning you'll have to request an invite, but they come rather quickly, and pinning away you will be!  

Brides looking to capture anything and everything of their own personal style can create a board and add items they identify with.  Name another board "bouquets" and browse the wedding blogs and sites for inspiration and create a collection of colors, style and anything you think could provide inspiration for your bouquet.  Keep creating as many boards as you need to keep your ideas in one place.  

We've already created a few boards, and are already using it and Minigroup  to work with brides for our flower shop.  It's very easy to spend a lot of time on this site, so don't say we didn't warn you!

[HOW TO] use color palette blogs to find ideas for your mountain wedding colors.

We get lots of brides planning their wedding near Breckenridge asking us to help them with their color palettes and bringing the most out of the venues, lodges and rooms that will host the various stages of the events of the wedding.  Perhaps the large gathering room for the ceremony is a bright room filled with natural light, while the dining room is a bit darker, but more intimate.  Maybe your favorite color is pink, and his is blue.  Maybe you can work the two together, maybe you'll go with something completely different.

Either way, you've got color choices to make.  But the fun part is imagining all the possibilities.  You can find lots of blogs out there to help with your wedding planning, but these two are recent favorite finds that are modern, fresh and fun.

The Perfect Palette is a "a wedding blog dedicated to helping you find the perfect color palette for your wedding" and { design seeds } which is a great palette collection, not wedding-specific, but great nonetheless!
