- Wedding: August 2011
I am frantic right now, trying to tie up all the loose ends for our wedding in August. Right now, our theme is “nature”. My fiancé is an inspiring lumberjack, so we are using a lot of tree ideas in the wedding. For example, we made an arch out of branches and carved a stump with our initials for the unity candles. Also, we have tree slices for the centerpieces, along with mason jars for flowers.
Right now, I am running in to a problem with the flowers. The bridesmaids have dark plum dresses – they are beautiful. But I am struggling with picking out flowers for them. I was thinking different shades of purple, but it just doesn’t look right to me. We will be having white flowers for the ceremony and I am afraid the ladies will look too dark with their dresses and flowers. Any suggestions?
Also, I am struggling with the dinner decor. Our reception is at a park, under a tent with rustic picnic tables. Initially, I was going to put white runners down the center with mason jars of purple flowers and tree slices with candles. Now I am thinking a deep purple table cloth would look nice with white flowers. But, I can’t find them anywhere! 🙁
Suggestions about be such a big help! Thanks!
