Galaxy Wedding Inspiration Board

I am just loving all these beautiful galaxy items!  The dark black, blues, and purples are just so gorgeous and are perfect for using in all sorts of items from leggings, to cakes, to makeup!  A galaxy themed wedding is a great way to incorporate this modern trend with luscious colors.

I also love the fact that this trend can easily be for women and men.  Men aren't going to feel overwhelmed in a galaxy themed wedding like they might in a Rose Quartz wedding, for instance.  The blues, purples, and blacks look great on men, and can easily be feminized if the bride feels like it.  Stars and space have many lovely symbols like "eternity" and "amazement" and "immortality" and "beauty".

Rose Quartz Wedding Inspiration

Rose Quartz is my new favorite!  Named as "color of the year" for 2016 (along with Serenity blue) by Pantone, this baby pink, pastel pink, blush, whatever you call it-- it's flooding the internet, malls, pinterest, and pretty much everywhere.  Everyone is loving the light feminine touch it creates, and the warm tone makes everything feel as if it's being kissed by a comfortable summer sun.

This inspiration board has quite a few goodies: (top-ish to bottom-ish)
pink wedding dress
watercolor invitations
groom tie and boutineer
flowers by Rachiepalooza
large wreath
cork and key escort cards
folded paper box
bridesmaid dresses
hot air balloon centerpieces
hearts engagement photo invitations

Personally Painted

All good things must come to an end.  Unfortunately I have my hands in too many buckets and this blog is one of the things that needs to go - I just don't have time to give it what it deserves.
My life is a little more fast-paced than it was before and sitting down to blog is a thing of the past.  I still have lots of goodies for you!  My website is still running! I'm still painting and creating new and beautiful invitations so follow me on facebook for art here and invitations here and instagram @nraevsky.

Lately, I've been working on re-vamping my businesses to be more streamlined and easy to see/order. It's taking a lot of effort, but it's going to be amazing.  The biggest change so far is the name.  I'm going from AnnaRaeCustomDesigns to Personally Painted Wedding Invitations, making it a little easier for people to see the name and know what exactly I'm doing.  With that change, I'm focusing on more painterly designs and allowing people to have some artistic quality to their wedding invitations. It's super fun and I love it!

I may come back and post here and there, but for now:
See you around!

Pastel Wedding Inspiration

With Spring here and flowers starting to bloom, it's the perfect time to have a pastel wedding!  The subtle colors are common in springtime and around the Easter season, and invoke a sense of calm beauty.

While almost any invitation can have its colors changed to pastels, these invitations are what made me think of springtime:
