Get Inspired: Shakespeare, In Love

When it comes to deciding on a wedding theme, consider all the possibilities for inspiration. From nature, to what's hot on the runway, to old movies, the sources of inspiration are wide. Today's inspiration board reflects a theme sprouted from a literary passage in one of the world's most beloved love stories. You know the one. We're referring to Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. If anyone tries to tell you that romance is dead, try reading the following passage to them...

Come, night; come, Romeo; come, thou day in night;
For thou wilt lie upon the wings of night
Whiter than new snow on a raven's back.
Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-brow'd night,
Give me my Romeo; and, when he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.

Ahhhhh, swooning....
