Friends, have you ever lost your umbrella? I lost both of mine a couple of weeks ago and ever since, my days have been spent constantly checking the weather on my phone or running from rain clouds. The skies have been a bit gloomy in the Carolinas lately, so I finally resigned to the fact that I wasn’t going to find my umbrella and got a new one yesterday. Let’s hope that Emily’s lemon squeeze inspiration board paired with my color palette finds puts Mother Nature in a better mood for tomorrow. Be prepared for sunshine, y’all!

I love how these yellow and green picks play off the colors of citrus groves throughout the South! These items will add some Southern sunshine to any wedding. Want more finds? Stay tuned because later today, Marissa is sharing her favorite yellow dress picks in her Southern Style column!

A. We love the idea of using chalkboards to identify signature drinks and menu items, especially when it comes in a bright frame like this one!

B. I am gaga for this ribbon. I see it wrapped around a lush bouquet or tied in the flower girl’s hair. What do you think it’s perfect for?

C. Balance out the sour of those lemons with some sweet rock candy. We think these would look adorable on a candy buffet!

D. We just love the idea of using mini citrus trees as part of the decor! You can buy meyer lemon trees and more online here.

E. No need to get too fancy with drinks, this lemon prosecco is tasty and only needs three ingredients (four if you count the mint garnish).

F. We know a Southern girl never skimps her guests on sweets or on cute presentation. Try these pleated cupcake liners if you’re baking for the wedding yourself!

G. Guests will have a ball guessing what’s inside these bright striped treat bags. Another option? Let guests fill the bags themselves with treats from the dessert bar. Provide custom stickers to keep goodies from falling out.

H. For tying treats, invitations, napkins and more, this “Lemondrop” twine is a go-to. We’ll never tire of seeing it!

I. For your bridesmaids who need a place for their lipstick and camera, this yellow cornflower clutch is the perfect summery accessory.

J. Draw eyes upward with an epic yellow chandelier. Whether it’s hanging over a lounge area or the dance floor, it’s sure to make a statement.

K. Can’t you picture these adorable lemon souffles sitting at each place setting during dessert? I love how they’re presented in the lemon rind!

L. Complete your outfit by accessorizing with this adorable green “Rana” cocktail ring in mint.

M. For a little snack before the nuptials, pack up lemonade, some fruit and cheese and crackers in a picnic basket for two. Or, fill it with some late night snacks to take with you after the reception!

N. For changing into when heels are too painful for the dance floor or for gifting to your ‘maids, these bright cap-toe flats are comfy but cute enough to don all night!

Did these picks bring some sunshine to your life? What other details would you include in a citrus-inspired wedding?

    A bright and shining winter beach wedding like Emily envisioned was just the ticket to start off the New Year! I love the idea of pairing glitzy items like gold foil cards and metallic jewelry with organic material like linen and kraft to play off the beach tones and sparkly waters. If you’re picturing a relaxed but elegant beach wedding brightened up with dozens of tea lights after dark, then these picks are for you!

    A. Bright winter wedding loveliness doesn’t have to stop at “I do.” Bring the style into your home with this striped bedding.

    B. Send guests off with a little goodie! Pack them in these kraft bags, slap a custom sticker or stamp on the front and you have an adorable thank you present!

    C. Just like blue skies make your heart happy, this blue bow tie will make your beau look positively dapper.

    D. Whether you’re donning it for the rehearsal dinner or dressing your ‘maids, this one-shoulder frock is affordable and just darling.

    E. Make your wrists sparkly and bright with this gold chain bracelet.

    F. A thank you note goes even further when it’s gold foil and striped!

    G. We’re a huge fan of sparkly heels in the office, but you don’t want to sink in the sand in them! Try these adorable flats, instead.

    H. Give the beach coolness a touch of warmth. We’re always fans of clusters of votives, especially when they’re as pretty as these mercury glass ones.

    I. Beach weddings also mean beach lounging right? Make things a little more formal with a wooden bench — but be sure to keep some throws nearby in case the winter beach breeze comes through, especially at night.

    J. We love this natural canvas tote with it’s leather handles. Stuff it with gift for your bridesmaids or with a change of clothes for post-wedding beach frolicking!

    K. These alphabet trays mimic the colors of the ocean. Keep them handy on your dressing table for trinkets and small jewelry.

    L. We love a little sparkle in unexpected places. Wrap up invitations, programs or favors with this white and gold twine.

    Now that Emily has started us off with some winter wedding inspiration and Marissa has given us the run-down of practical but pretty Southern style, I’ve rounded up some finds to turn these ideas into a reality.

    Madi said she envisioned a Southern barn wedding with “mason jars, cowboy boots, great food and beautiful floral arrangements.” Though a summer wedding may not be in the cards, there’s still a way to incorporate all of those elements! Southern hospitality never fails, even when the weather is unforgiving. Play up the rustic details, which are as beautiful as ever in the winter and keep your guests’ best interests in mind by providing a warm atmosphere (candles and string lights are a favorite in my book) and comfy details like blankets and warm drinks. They’ll feel right at home and ready to celebrate!

    A. Warmth is a priority when you’re wearing a dress! Keep a (faux) fur stole, jacket or wrap close by. If fur isn’t your style, try a warm wool cardigan or a sleek white blazer.

    B. Want some jewelry that looks lovely in winter weather without reminding you of sparkly (and cold!) snow? How about these pearl Kate Spade earrings?

    C. Keep makeup essentials and a hanky handy in this geometric clutch from Oatmeal Lace. Bonus? It’s just casual enough to be used after the wedding!

    D. Dress up those comfy cowboy boots with some warm lace mohair socks! The little side buttons are adorable!

    E. Crocheted netted wrist gloves will keep your fingers warm without being bulky. We love this pair from BHLDN. Want something a little warmer? We love these, too.

    F. Cotton bolls will last even in the dead of winter. Tie name tags to a boll for Southern escort cards (see our Fab Finds in V4!), or put a few in a mason jar for a centerpiece.

    G. I love the warmth of glowing string lights. The view of your reception area flooded with yellow light will immediately let your guests know where the party’s at!

    H. Keep the small details rustic, too. These monogrammed cuff links will surely look dapper on your sweetie’s sleeve.

    I. Warm pie and goodies from the dessert bar will look scrumptious on these silhouette dessert plates!

    J. Nothing beats warming your hands by the fire. A round fire pit in your lounge area gives guests the opportunity to get some fresh air while staying warm.

    K. Dressing up your table without the cost of out-of-season flowers is easy. These Epsom salt candles pick up the winter theme. Place them in mason jars for an added Southern flair.

    L. S’mores are great favors for winter weddings, and guests can break into their supplies while they sit around the fire pit. You can put these together easily by placing a few graham crackers, chocolate pieces and marshmallows in a cellophane bag. We love packaging them inside muslin bags (we use this source and Amazon.com) that you can stamp with a custom message. Want another warm favor idea that involves less work? We think these hot chocolate stirrers will be a hit.

    M. Stock your lounge area with these comfy (and affordable!) cable-knit throws from Ikea. After the wedding, you and your beau will love snuggling up with them on the couch.

    N. Warm up your guests with a rich signature cocktail — milk punch!
