- Wedding: July 2011
I’m having a really hard time with my whole color combo situation. Originally, I wanted black and white with red accents, but my fiance’s reaction was “red and black? sounds gothic” I dismissed it at first but the more I looked around the more wintery/valentines-y it seemed to me. Sooooo I decided to go with black and white with YELLOW accents. I love yellow (bold yellow – nooooo pastels!!!) and it just seems so summery and cheery. I will definitely not use a LOT of yellow but want some in there…
Now what I Want to know is for my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses…do you like the idea of
- floral printed dresses (either black and white or black and yellow) with yellow flowers (something like this http://www.lizfields.com/Product/Bridesmaid-Dresses/Short-Square-Neckline-Style-252/)
- yellow dresses possibly with a black sash with yellow flowers and greenery (this idea as far as color but not style http://thegloss.com/files/400/2008/05/0805_31_yellowdress.jpg)
- black dresses with a hint of yellow and bright yellow flowers? (something like this http://www.style.com/slideshows/standalone/vogue/feature/2009_Feb_Blake_Lively/05m.jpg)
I don’t want to change to gray and yellow which seems to be the trend – black is so much more ME! – but I don’t want it to come off as bumblebee-ish either. Besides the flowers and dresses (and maybe a small ribbon on invites, favors, etc) everything else will be black and white.
Oh and if it helps the girls’ bouquets will be gerbera daisies of different shades of yellow with black centers. AND none of the girls have issues wearing yellow – in fact they helped me make the decision to switch from red to yellow!
