I want to wish all of my readers a very happy holiday season. I'll be taking a break from blogging to spend time with family and friends, but, I do have some fun posts lined up for Mon (12/29), Tues (12/30) and Weds (12/31). I will be featuring my favorite Real Weddings from my Photography Blogs list. And, of course you can always browse thru my past inspiration boards, Real Weddings and all my previous posts until I officially return to blogging. I'll be back on Monday January 5th with all the latest 2009 wedding trends to reveal along with Real Weddings, my inspiration boards and of course, tons of other wedding tips, hot products and more. And, be sure to visit Best Wedding Sites for all your wedding and honeymoon planning needs.

Now, for today's inspiration board which features the ever popular holiday peppermint stripes. To help break up the monotony of the stripes, I've introduced round elements. While I could see this theme being used for a wedding - I just love the idea that is presented with the invitation sample I've shown {which can easily be customized with the text of your choosing}. The idea presented on this invitation is to ask your friends and family over for cocktails and hors d'oeuvres to help celebrate the first Christmas in your new home as husband and wife. Below the inspiration board, I've also included a dress, a pair of shoes, and some fun candy cane drinks that I think would be perfect for the party.
