Okay: I love colors. One of the early wedding decisions is apparently: “What are your colors?” As in: what will be the underlying theme, the color of the bridesmaids dresses, the flowers…
Well, I have _lots_ of color ideas. I’m inspired by green, a la the ring. I love love love pink. I love yellow, and the idea of yellow and green, but also yellow and green and pink together. With white. And purple?
One idea would be to have the female members of the bridal party (I also have some male members, which also complicates the color issue) where cute black dresses, in which they would look and feel fabulous. But black dresses for spring? And rainbow bouquets? Hmm. My floormate Kelsey had a good idea: let them carry white bouquets, and I’ll carry all the colors.
And I loved the idea Matt’s mom had, describing her favorite bridesmaid’s outfit: a skirt, blouse, and cameo–what a great idea, to use beautiful clothes that can be worn again. Here is an idea for the bridesmaids:
Kicky green party dresses, channeling perhaps Audrey Hepburn in those old romantic comedies? And a vintage-inspired sweater–because not everyone feels comfortable with bare arms. Maybe the black button on the sweater could be replaced with antique buttons from a thrift store. The best part? Both of these are from Target! Affordable, wearable, sweet.
Okay: flower colors. And I love them all.
And I love those flowers, but that gives no easy answer for “What are your colors?” Can I answer: “All of them?”
