- Wedding: June 2015
For our wedding, we’re doing a vintage-inspired theme. I adore lace and have always wanted bird cage centrepieces. I haven’t got a dress yet but I’m looking to have lace on that as well as my veil. I’m having faux roses to carry and a full-length chiffon gown as the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress (again, haven’t picked the exact one out yet). The problem is that I can’t decide on which colour to do – red or pale blue?
I LOVE red. I think it looks bright and warm as long as you don’t overdo it. But I’m worried that red is too bright and brash to go with what’s otherwise a really pretty and delicate theme. When I think vintage-esque I think pastels – like pale blue. I think that would look beautiful too, and would go better, but I like them both and can’t really decide between the two.
Do you think a vintage-esque theme works best with a pastel colour? Would red be too bright? What’s your personal preference?
