Guest Pinner: Vané Broussard of Brooklyn Bride

Most of us on the Design*Sponge team are either planning our own weddings or making crepe paper poofs and stamping escort cards for friends, so it’s perfect timing that were dedicating June to all things nuptial. Between the ever-present roster of wedding and entertaining blogs and new, seemingly infinite inspiration available on Pinterest, it’s easy to get burlap-and-lace-ed out. But Vané Broussard’s blog, Brooklyn Bride, is a breath of fresh air with it’s clean, modern spaces, bold palettes and minimalist DIY’s. We’ve been following her blog for years, and not just because of her well-curated wedding content. Vané is also an interior designer, so even when her posts aren’t celebration-centric – and, refreshingly, not all of them are – there are plenty of architectural details to be inspired by.

For that reason, were thrilled to welcome Vané as our June Guest Pinner. All this week she’ll be sharing links to all the wonderful things that catch her well-trained eye, right here. Whether you’re planning a wedding, daydreaming for the future, or just want to throw an amazing party, we’re certain it will be a board you go back to over and over, this summer and for many celebrations to come.


So synchronous! A friend is getting officially licensed today at City Hall before her wedding in Italy next week. I’m thrilled to be her witness today as I can’t attend the ceremony at Lake Como. Any great ideas for what to bring or do for her today? Flowers? Bouquet of white balloons? (Can you bring balloons inside City Hall?) “Just Married” banner? I’d love to do something simple, sweet and cute to celebrate.
