Pretty Plum Posies

We are in full swing here at Periwinkle, meeting with brides for summer and fall weddings this year. Something new we are doing is putting together “mood” boards for our brides to help them visualize the colour combinations, as it can certainly be overwhelming during the planning process and when I say purple and yellow that might not look the same in your head as it does in mine! As an example, here is the board I created for one of my most recent brides to be. She is getting married in June this year and has chosen a lovely plum colour for the bridesmaids. We discussed a few different colour combos, starting with the more obvious one of mixing in pinks, but this bride is a little more adventurous and wanted to do something fresher- here’s where we picked up the idea of a soft creamy yellow as a highlight to the plums, purples and blues.

I love it! And it works so well for this bride as she herself is a light blond with pale skin. I can’t wait to work on this one!
