Ruby For Days | For Brides Series | Maison’s Wedding Inspiration.

August 11, 2015

I decided while creating this post yesterday that my job is AMAZING. I mean, I already knew this, but specifically for this post, I got to look at gorgeous images of weddings + find tons of inspiration that not only sets my own creative heart afire, but I then get to share it with brides + future brides who are or will be planning their own weddings!! Seriously, SO FUN!!!! I also decided that I think if Caleb + I ever do a vow renewal celebration (or any sort of major party for that matter), this color palette just might be the winner. I LOVE jewel tones + specifically the marsalas, reds, rubies, merlot tones!! So rich + beautiful + absolutely timeless!! This post is just FILLED with pretty today!!!

This is the second post in my “Maison’s Wedding Inspiration” Collective for our For Brides SeriesYou can find the first post – filled with inspiration for a wedding with a touch of purple – here!! Today, however, enjoy some of my favorite ideas on how to include ruby tones into your big day!!!

1. Bridesmaid Dresses

All of these looks are to die for, however my favorite might be the mismatched dresses!!
