Inspiration Request: Winter Cabin & Pea Coats

I received this very challenging inspiration request from Brooke: 

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

I do love the inspiration boards, maybe a new one? Woodsy, wintery…think Anthropologie (as is all my inspiration) in a Colorado cabin with the bride and her ladies in p-coats. -Brooke

Wow. Okay, Brooke! I did the best I could, but given that the concept is SUPER unique, it was nigh impossible to find some of these images. First off, let’s say NO to a light blue/all white winter wedding. Let’s be a little different!

I was inspired by the recent throwback to plaid. Maybe you hate it. But I thought it was kind of fun to add a few punches of that in there. Imagine envelopes lined in plaid paper. Cute! 

After several hours of tireless searching, I admitted defeat. I could NOT find a picture of bridesmaids (or a group of girls for that matter) all wearing pea coats and dresses and boots. The idea is unbelievably adorable, so I did my best to convey the concept. (If you find a picture, post it or a link to it in the comments…I’m dying to see one!)

Flower girl in red pea coat? Check. Bridesmaids in knee high vintage boots? Check. Bride and groom in snow? Check. Lodge, with fireplace? Check. And if this were my wedding, (not gonna lie…I know I always say this, but this board makes me want a winter wedding) then I might do a soup bar for dinner. Yum. And gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. Mmmmm…. I do love soup. And how fun would your wedding weekend be up in the snowy mountains? Maybe some sledding in the snow before the rehearsal? Maybe a snowboarding bachelor/bachelorette party? I’m loving it!

  3. I think that you did great with this concept, but I do know that the Barlow Girl album cover for their Christmas album (released in 2008) featured them all in LOVELY 3/4 length pea coats…

    Thanks! My boy and I LOVE soup, so if we get married, I’m tempted to finagle a soup extravaganza into the mix!

  7. This idea rocks!-great design board too…

    The cool winter wedding could be done in Mammoth or Tahoe. Not so far away but, still a destination wedding. Andersons split soup would be a nice touch. Papa

    I just had another great idea. I think it would be great if the groom were to wear a vintage blue, red and orange ski coat. Wow! what a great idea. Papa
