Interestingly enough, FH was the one who picked the colors. I love so many colors and color combinations, I knew I would never be able to make a choice. Since my FH has an amazing gift for aesthetic, I asked him what colors he thought we should have. His response: "how about pinks and greens?". And that was that. Our colors were henceforth chosen.
In the spirit of the color selection, I wanted to post some inspirational pics:
I love the combination of the pale greens and pinks in this bouquet. It has roses, hydrangea, and orchids-- three of my favorite flowers! The only ones they don't have are peonies and ranunculas :).
Tulips will be in season when FH and I get married, and I love the look of clustered poms like those shown in this centerpiece collection. Plus, it has the floating candle in a vase with water, one of the simple but elegant choices we're considering in an effort to keep our wedding as "green" as possible.
the pocketfold invitation. It keeps everything
so neat and organized! I like the shimmery
copper color of this pocketfold and the simple
design of the invitation.
FH and I are considering having shephard's
hooks lining the aisle with pomanders like this
(especially because again, it has two of my favorite
flowers: hydrangea and peonies). But because
I'm going to do as much DIY as I can to save
money on flowers, I'm really going to have to
practice these ahead of time to make sure
I can get them right!
Although FH and I aren't going to have
a ring bearer (neither of us has any
young 'uns in our respective families, *boo hoo*),
I still loved the look of the poms and ranuncula
in this creative ring bearer pillow. I may
use this as inspiration for my centerpieces!
Although FH and I aren't having an
outdoor reception, I absolutely love
the look of this photo. The light pink
tablecloths with rose pink overlays
and green chair covers and bows
really make a statement. I may
borrow this idea for our venue, because
it could use a splash of color!
FH and I have decided to go with
cupcakes instead of a traditional wedding
cake, mostly because we're aiming to
do things a little differently and want to
have a casual wedding and ceremony.
Still, I like the colors on this cake and
think that our cupcakes can have similar
decorative icing on top for a really pretty
