Don't Be Afraid To Let Them Show


Hi Susan,

FI and I are getting married in spring 2010. That leaves us a good amount of time to plan (right????????????). The problem de jour is I love deep, luscious colors. They're not exactly appropriate for spring. How do I go about finding more spring-like shades I like?

Thanks,

Kelly in a Conundrum



Dear Conundrum,

Let me get this straight.

You're getting married in the spring with the birds chirping, skies cleared up and everyone in a great mood from being out of the snow.

You're not hip with pastels or other stereotypical spring colours though.

You're trying to determine what colours you should have on YOUR wedding day.

Are you noticing where I'm going with this yet?

To be blunt, who cares about 'spring colours'? If you prefer eggplant, burgundy, emerald, rust ... go with them. Just because you're getting married in a different season doesn't mean you have to conform. It's your day ... one you're going to remember for a very long time (especially with all the photos being taken) ... please do yourself the honour of surrounding yourself with your favourite things. This means favourite colours, favourite foods, favourite music, favourite everything!!!

And if you don't want a colour scheme at all, be bold and take that step. I wish more couples did :)

Keep reading,

Susan

Luscious deep purple anemones, hot pink freesia, sweet peas in strawberry red and plum with a little tinge of lime green, deep purple lilacs, blood red peonies (harder to get but worth it!).....mmmmmmmm. Spring has a secret sexy side full of deep rich toned flowers that are yours to discover!
I say Go with your heart, Kelly- make this wedding reflect you all the way- Jess at Periwinkle
