Arsena & Mike Inspiration Board

My best friend’s older sister (basically my older sister) got engaged recently, and I am so excited for her and her fiancée! And of course, I started scourging Pinterest for some inspiration for her. I know she wanted blush and grey to be the main colors, and she had one thing to tell me: no mason jars. Plus these two like everything sweet and simple. So here is what I have put together so far!


Nothing extravagant- clean lines, simple script or print. No crazy pictures. But that doesn’t mean boring!



Arsena is a petite girl, so no ball gowns for her! I really like the idea of mermaid-style dresses, or grecian flowey ones for her, with a classic Spanish-style veil with lace detailing.


For the Men

Simple colors, maybe in a grey or navy so it isn’t too harsh against the ladies’ dresses. Maybe a blush colored tie to compliment the colors? Ans I can absolutely see Mike and the guys ditching the jackets and just having vests or suspenders.



Arsena mentioned that she really likes the idea of long dresses for the ladies, and I agree. There are plenty of options, and blush colors will look good on most skin tones (from the darker hispanic skin tones on Arsena’s side, to the pale Minnesota cousins on the other).



Big blooms, like peonies and tea roses, in the blush and white colors would look fantastic. Again, keeping it simple, but fun.




I love the classic tiered cakes with smooth finishes, and just a few embellishments, like gold foiling and flowers/leaves. Its simple and elegant.
