Elegant and simple, lavender is the perfect inspiration for a classic bridal look. Slip into Winifred Bean’s breathtaking Petals dress—a silk, scoop-necked bodice flows into a romantic skirt layered in lovely tulle. Bring a blush of color to this gorgeous gown by cinching your waist with a lavender ribbon. Reflect this bloom’s purple hue in your perfectly polished lilac nails, and tuck all your essentials into a lavender clutch. Contrast pale purple accessories with a dark plum Swarovski crystal necklace and black suede booties. And don’t forget your handsome groom—add a splash of lavender to his slate gray suit with a pretty purple linen tie.

Gather inspiration for your bridal style from the blush tones of an autumn peach harvest. Start your look with the elegant Winifred Bean Calla Lily gown—a strapless bustier is combined with a classic trumpet skirt to complete a sweet and structured bridal gown. Show your soft side with pale pink and gold on your eyes, rosy cheeks, and glossy nude lips. Peach and blue heels guide you down the aisle, and don’t forget sparkly jewels to add a touch of glamour—simple peach-tones gems dangle from your ears, while a bedazzled bib necklace brings glitz to your simple style. As the sun sets and the air begins to cool, stay warm with a cashmere scarf wrapped your shoulders, and maybe a little help from your handsome groom.

Summer cools into crisp fall as the peaches ripen on their branches in a Georgia orchard. Channel the delicate pink hues of this sweet Southern fruit at your fall wedding. Soft pastel stationery featuring a peach tree in full bloom is the perfect way to announce your nuptials. Frame the natural beauty of an orchard with playful streamers in varying shades of pink and peach, and walk down a garland-lined aisle with a larger-than-life bouquet in a rainbow of pinks and oranges. Vases in all shapes and sizes welcome your friends and family to a peach-accented reception. Gather your guests around tables accented with wooden bowls filled to the brim with the tender fuzzy fruit. Wrap up your peachy night with a spicy cardamom-infused signature cocktail, then sweeten things up with a towering peach-frosted cake.
