Inspiration Board # 202: Red Meets Yellow

April 8, 2009

{Red & Yellow}

Looking for a fun color palette for your upcoming summer wedding? So was Eva, a bride-to-be who recently wrote to me and asked me for my help and guidance. Eva sent me a picture of a lovely bright yellow dress that she said she would love for her bridesmaids to wear. She said that she was hoping to created a bright summery look that would be perfect for an outdoor, garden wedding. The only problem she foresaw was that she already had bought her wedding dress and it was ivory. She said that she felt that a dress of this color would only go with fall shades. What's a bride to do? Eva asked if I could make her a color palatte that was sophiscated, simple, yet fun and summery. And I did just that! In my design for Eva, bridesmaids were a ray of sunshine in yellow and held bouquets of red and yellow blooms. For her centerpiece design I chose to use fruit. Glass jars held red apples and lemons. This display proved to be a conversation piece and fit nicely into Eva's summer theme. In addition, a tasty beverage bar was set up that featured punch & lemonade. The bride wore a lovely yellow hair piece and carried a lovely bouquet of red gerber daisies. Incorporating these fun colors into the bridal attire really tied in her lovely ivory wedding dress. Guests went home with a late night snack -french fries and a coke in an old fashioned bottle!!!
