Wednesday wedding inspiration: Yellow

Well my wedding colors so far are ivory and clover (as the bridesmaid dresses are). But these are not randomly chosen colors. Actually they were chosen using the classic calla lily as inspiration. But there is one color left in my inspiration - yellow. Just like in a calla lily, I want yellow to be used sparingly as an accent throughout the decor. So without further ado, here are my ideas for yellow accents:

Bouquet featuring yellow billy balls from Elegance & Simplicity

I see my bouquet being mostly ivory flowers and greenery, but I think these billy balls will add the perfect pop of color.

I've planned on wearing converse for awhile now. Many brides incorporate pops of color with their shoes to add personality. Why not do it with bright yellow chucks?

And since I'm already loving paper lanterns, why not make them a cheery yellow?

  1. If you're interested in yellow chucks, and are willing to make the splurge... you can make a personalized pair on the chuck taylor website. you can then get the wedding date on them, or something fun like "Mrs. Snuggles"

    OR if you aren't up for the splurge but like the idea... i'm sure i could think of some awesome people who're shopping around for bridal presents and that could surely make the list! (but you'd have to provide info on what you'd want)

    and i love love love love love love love the idea of paper lanterns. the oriental trading company bridal catalog (gag) i got happens to have a bunch at affordable prices. it actually has multiple cool things, so i'm holding onto it just in cases.

    your wedding is going to be so pretty/ perfectly you. i love the colors!
