A Red and Olive Themed Wedding at a Beautiful Hillside Resort

Romancing our way through the week has never been this delightful because today’s wedding is absolutely beautiful–from the hilltop view at Alila Ubud, to the elegant details that filled every part of the union! Xiao Yan and Jia Ning chose a dramatic palette of red and olive green, a fitting one for the nature-filled surroundings of their venue. Flowers were in theme as well but kept at a minimum to allow Alila Ubud’s scenery to command the view. Lastly, we love Xiao Yan’s minimalist dress, a modern chic choice that fit her perfectly! With her short bob loosely framing her face with soft curls and a cascading veil, she stunned everyone when she stepped on the aisle. I’ve said much but I think you’d better see all the photos of Iluminen for yourself! Scroll on now.

Easy, Step-by-Step Guide On How to Make a Mood Board For Your Wedding

This first part of wedding planning, deciding on your wedding color and theme, is probably one of the most fun parts, for me. It’s a process that really lets you tap into that creative side of you and once you see the colors and styles coming together, it makes the start of wedding planning a very exciting one! The best way to really go about deciding on your wedding color and theme is by creating your own mood board. And today, we’re sharing with you an easy, step-by-step guide on how to do it! Let’s begin.


(1) Start gathering inspiration on Pinterest.

Aren’t we lucky to have Pinterest in this digital age? You can find all the inspiration you need here–start pinning away! You can create one board first for all the things you see that interest you and inspire you. Pin colors, decorations, flowers, gowns, and more! Don’t worry first about how they go together; we will come to that later. Just keep adding all your favorite things first. I absolutely loved diving into Pinterest and just immersing in all the beautiful finds in the site!

(2) Narrow down your choices.

After you think you’ve searched enough, it’s time to start narrowing down your choices. You can do this by creating another board then moving your absolute favorite pins there. For this second board, instead of it just being a second dump of photos, try to group together ideas, colors, and details that look good together. If you realize that you have more than one set of photos that look good together, you can make a third board and put the other group there.
