Our new blog, Style in Simplicity, has launched!

I’m beyond excited to announce the launch of our new lifestyle and wedding inspiration blog, Style in Simplicity!

We won’t be eliminating this blog entirely, but we will be posting here much less often. Moving forward, we hope that you will follow along at styleinsimplicity.com for your southern wedding inspiration favorites like real weddings, wedding color schemes, and wedding favor ideas. We are also looking forward to sharing more inspiration for everyday, including posts on entertaining, interiors, organization, fashion, and more styled goodness!

Our New Lifestyle Blog, Style In Simplicity

Thank you to all of our followers for your continued support. It has been a truly amazing two years and we can’t wait to see what 2015 has in store for Simply Southern Wedding Boutique, our online wedding and party shop, and Style in Simplicity, our new creative space for celebrating all that is simple and stylish!

As always, please feel free to email me with any questions or comments – your feedback is very much appreciated.

Get inspired by this styled shoot, beautifully captured by Erin Walker Photography. We are in love with the fun combination of modern and rustic elements used to create this chic wedding look. The color palette of pink, mint, and aqua brings together all of the sweet details, from the mercury glass votives and vintage-inspired cake pedestal to the succulents and macaroon favors in mini glass bell jars.
