Each week we focus on one spectacular gallery from our Ideas section. We hope that these galleries inspire you in creating your own unique wedding vision.  This week's selection comes from a real wedding by Julia Timmer Photography.

First of all, let's start with how great this wedding party looks. The gray suits are fantastic, and their ties are colorful and creative (I love that the best man chose a patterned tie). The maid of honor is wearing a comfortable and chic sundress that she can wear again and again.

The key to having a wedding with bright colors that doesn't stray towards circus tent is all about balance. Use the colors in key places, such as centerpieces and boutiques (like the one above). You can also use the same colors in more muted tones, such as the paper flags used to decorate the cupcakes below.

Juxtapose the color with a terrific font and black and white signage. Add color to the smaller elements, such as the string on these place cards (above). Carry the font through to other details, like these cocktail menus (below). His and hers cocktails? So clever!
