Recently, many of you gave me your feedback about color choices for the wedding. The overwhelming majority of readers voted for pink and blue. I have to admit that for this occasion, pink and blue was my favorite choice, too! Although I adore a pink and green combination, I recently used it for the minnies' First Communion celebration.
We're already well on our way to creating the palette for this wedding color story. The color story for this special day includes Navy Blue, Matisse Blue, Hot Pink, and Silver. I've been a busy bee and have already booked so many vendors!
My two attendants are going to wear the Louisa dress from J. Crew in Matisse Blue silk chiffon. The plan is to pair the dress with silver shoes and jewelry.
Who needs to rent linens when you can make beautiful table toppers at home? Lilly Pulitzer Fallin in Love comforter covers from Garnet Hill will be transformed into beautiful table toppers, piped with bright pink trim by my mother and her fabulous sewing skills.
Peonies are in bloom in June. The large, fragrant buds are dramatic and colorful as a bright contrast to the shades of blue. I love the idea of a large bouquet of peonies without any filler!
Nautical touches and details will round out the color story while a candy buffet delights the sweet tooth of guests of all ages. More details to follow!
So now it's your turn. I want my guests to feel special and I want to give them a favor that they'll enjoy. If it is a non-edible favor, I would like it to be something that they would actually keep and not leave behind as is often the case that I've seen at many other weddings.
I'd love to hear your opinion about a question that is on my mind. If we're having a candy buffet, is another favor necessary? Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
