Any wedding planner knows—trend overload can sometimes be detrimental to a young bride’s mission in planning the perfect day. With so many trims and colors and textures, you may need to call in an expert.

Enter Katie Jackson-Meara, the bubbly tastemaker behind So Dressed Up, an event planning and styling company in Chicago. At our PJ’s at the Park Hyatt event recently, we asked Katie a very simple question: What are your favorite color combinations for Spring events? The result in asking? Well, we don’t want to spoil the fun. Take a look at Katie’s lovely inspiration boards with links to where she finds the lovely below.

Blush is a favorite in the bridal world. It’s feminine and romantic, soft and sweet. For a new take this Spring, pair it with gold—another personal passion—to add some serious style and glam to your wedding day.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT:
GOLD & PINK CAKE 
GOLD RIMMED GLASSES 
PLACE CARDS >> I’m pretty sure there could not possibly be a more beautiful and lovely way to seat your guests. I love, love, love the idea of escort cards on a full bed of fluffy, lush Spring blooms.
METALLIC FOIL LETTERPRESS INVITATIONS

DANA REBECCA ROSE GOLD, DIAMOND & PINK QUARTZ EARRINGS
LAZARA SPRING 2013 GOWN >> Obsessed would be a real understatement for this fab fock. For the bride brave enough to wear color, this ball gown is stunning. The color is soft enough to still feel bridal, the shape is so timeless, and the embellished belt is amazing. I absolutely love something that’s unique and classic all at the same time and (not-so) secretly wish I could get married again to wear this. Home run, Lazaro. Lazaro is available at the Bridal Salon at Macy’s, 312.781.3545.

I’ve had a long time love for the color mint. It’s clean and fresh, calming and gorgeous. Paired with tan, it is such a perfect look for Spring that ladies and gents alike will enjoy. I can’t get enough. I’m already dreaming of khaki suits and peonies.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT:
DOILY FLORAL CONES >> A very simple DIY that will make big impact.
DRINK STIRRERS >> My obsession with darling details is a known fact and these DIY adorable little drink stirrers are no exception. They are the perfect accessory for your signature cocktail or bubbly.
J. CREW ARABELLE BRIDESMAID DRESS (shown long) 
J. CREW MINT BANGLE >> Bridesmaid gift, anyone?
MINT PROGRAM FANS
BONOBOS KHAKI SUIT
MINT PARTY FAVORS >> Martha really does no wrong. Cutie and easy DIY packaging, a play on words, and a fresh treat for your guests—what more could you possibly want?

Grey is my signature color. I just adore it. It’s timeless and classic, chic and striking, seasonless and versatile. For Spring, I love to pair it with white and a little bit of sparkle for a light and lovely look. Bonus: This color combo is one you’ll still love when you walk down memory lane in thirty years.

CLOCKWISE FROM TOP LEFT:
BHLDN Just Married Sign >> I love these for a “Mr.”.and “Mrs.” chair swag alternative or a sparkly photo op in the photobooth.
SILVER DOT CAKE
JIMMY CHOO LOTUS  SHOE >> You won’t regret wearing fabulous shoes. Period. Still not convinced? You’ll get to re-live that Cinderella moment every time you wear them post-wedding.
SEPHORA + PANTONE OPULENT LACQUER TRIO >> Add a little (cheap) bling to your rehearsal dinner ensemble.
GREY & WHITE RIBBON TRIM + DISCO CONFETTI
CALLIGRAPHY PLACE CARDS >> I have such an appreciation for gorgeous calligraphy. I especially love a calligrapher that will work with you to create a custom style that results in something as magnificent as this.
