So the minute I saw the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” I fell in love. I decided I wanted a Tiffany’s wedding. I was thinking Tiffany blue with white and silver and pink flowers. A lot of sparkle and pearls and just a general glamorous, but fun, feel. And when I saw this Martha Stewart wedding I was completley inspired (and jealous!). Just look at my pintrest! Its full of Tiffany blue and all the ideas I’ve gathered.
But there are a few things holding me back from commiting to this theme, despite the fact that it’s my dream.
I am a girl of color (no, I’m not black, I just wear a lot of it). So I feel like I’d be ignoring my fun personality if I didn’t have a huge splash of bright colors at my wedding.
The sherbet-y colors of this board inspired me so much! I could have white linens with tons of fuscias, and oranges, and greens, and yellows everywhere. Limes and lemons could be incorporated in to the centerpieces. We could have a fruit sangria bar and different lemonades. It just feels so fun and fresh and ME.
2.[b/]RED AND BLUE
My all time favorite color is red and FI’s is blue, so I thought it might be cute to incorporate the two into our wedding. But, how do you make that NOT seem patriotic? I mean just look at this board:
It’s a beautiful, and not centered around patriotism at all. And yet, it STILL look a little too USA… IDK I love the idea of picking colors that really mean something to the both of us, and I can still get my Tiffany blue. But I just can’t get over the unintentional patriotic symbolism of it all.
Also, I want to incorporate lace and pearls anywhere. Lace because its my favorite fabric ever and pearls because that’s my FI’s last name and my favorite stone. Now the pearls easily work into the Tiffany theme, but not so much the lace. And neither one really works with the sherbet or the Red and Blue. Any ideas?
EDIT: man, apparently I don’t know HTML very well. help??
