Anyway, this board was requested by a bride who is getting married at a winery in California. She was deciding between a yellow and dark blue or a yellow and gray color palette. I just love the freshness of gray though and I think it works brilliantly for an outdoor wedding.

You could use favorite authors to name the tables instead of numbers (and include your favorite quote). I really love the idea of incorporating vintage (or vintage looking) books into the centerpieces. With this in mind I worked with a natural wood, gold/sunflower, rust and red color scheme as most vintage book colors tend to be in that scheme. The sunflowers add a bit of a rustic hint, at least in my opinion. I hope this board helps create the beautiful rustic wedding she's after!

Also wanted to include these cute invitations that didn't make the board and the full version of the save-the-date that I edited to fit the board:

This board doesn't have a specific color scheme, but it certainly has a theme! I'm calling it Farmer's Market Chic. There's lots of fresh herbs (as favors, escort cards and even a wreath!), fruit and vegetables incorporated into the centerpieces and farmers market (or in the case of the bouquet used in the board, supermarket) bouquets transformed into beautifully chic wedding party bouquets. There is a great photo set on how to change supermarket bouquets into wedding day bouquets on Real Simple.
