Our wedding is evolving!
Yesterday was a great wedding planning day! After a day of despair on Tuesday, I awoke feeling… happy. Without sharing too much at this moment in time and jinxing it all, I’m starting to feel at peace with the whole wedding planning journey and yesterday’s progression has allowed me to “see” it all again in my head.
Our colour scheme has been a bit backwards and forwards over the past 6+ months of planning. I’ve always known that I wanted yellow featured somewhere (obviously), but was never too sure what to pair it with. Originally we had decided upon a “gold” yellow, navy, vintage red and cream scheme, but after mulling it over for a good few months I’ve decided that it will be too dark for our village hall reception, and I’d like something a bit brighter.
I came across a few gorgeous colour schemes featuring mint green, yellow (both mustard and a brighter “gold” yellow) and silver. I had my “eureka” moment.
I wanted to add “poppy” red in there too, but alas it doesn’t really go with my dress – although the hall does have aspects of red in it.
This beautiful colour scheme also means that I can use one of my favourite flowers, the Craspedia, in my bouquet and for button-holes!
I love Craspedia… mostly because it looks like a craft pompom!
I’m so excited about this scheme; it’s beautiful, fresh and has the hints of 1920s England and Village Fête we’re looking for!
