INSPIRATION: inspire us!

Calling all clever, witty, fun and silly brides!* The Frosted Petticoat and Tulaloo have cooked up some wedding fun and need your help!

We've all the seen the ubiquitous Wedding Inspiration Boards, on all those wedding planning sites, yes? And truthfully, many of them are pretty great and filled with all sort of wonderful eye candy. But after seeing page after page after page of "inspiration" you realize that there is something missing...FUN! and JOY! Even the "whimsicle details" are taken pretty seriously (and usually involve mustaches on sticks). We believe a beautifully designed wedding, injected with a healthy dose of fun, is exactly what the wedding industry needs right now.

Help us create some really gorgeous and really fun wedding inspiration boards. Suggest a clever idea for a theme and The Frosted Petticoat will create an inspiration board to illustrate it. Not sure what we are talking about? Check out some of The Frosted Petticoat's awesome inspiration boards:

Tell us which two unlikely people you would like to see get married, or what two opposing themes you want to see brought together in a wedding wonderland. What celebrity do you secretly wish was a wedding planner? Give us your best ideas and we will pick our three favorites to make very fun and very pretty inspiration boards for. All submissions can be posted to our Facebok walls or added in the comments of this blog post. We need your brilliant ideas by Friday please!!

This no-strings-attached, joyfully silly contest is sponsored by:

(who provided retro style temporary tattoos for all her wedding guests to wear) and

(who topped her wedding cake with a vintage King Kong statuette)

*you don't actually have to be a bride to participate. So long as you have a sense of humor we welcome your suggestion!

As a serious huge fan of The Frosted Petticoat, is there a better way for your petticoat to be, I am SO thrilled for the fun sort of anti traditional inspiration board adventure. Sam is a hard core awesome boarder and I know this will be seriously cool. Can't wait to see the final results!

1) If Old McDonald was a wedding planner
2) Monopoloy Matrimony
3) Marry Poppins marries James Dean
4) Josephine Baker marries Mario Batali (remember her banana skirt!)
Are these so predictable me? I wanted to play too!
