“Hello 🙂 I was very happy to find your site and browse your inspiration boards. I’m getting married June 11, 2011 in an outdoor setting with grass and trees. We’re having the reception in a large remodeled barn – it’s actually very charming.
My dress is ivory chiffon. I’m trying to decide what shade of purple
my maid-of-honor and bridesmaids will wear. They will wear different
styles of dresses but all in the same color – either wisteria (a
lighter purple) or lapis (darker purple).
For flowers, I was thinking of either a combination of green/fuscia or
coral/pink/fuscia. If you can help me by creating an inspiration
board, I would sincerely appreciate it. Feel free to choose whichever
dress color you think might look best for an early June outdoor
wedding. This has been the hardest part of wedding planning so far.
And we’ve been engaged for more than a year already!
Thank you so much,
Heather, although I liked both purple colored dresses, I just love love the idea of pairing the darker purple dresses with fuchsia and green! I created your inspiration board with flowers in these colors along with the lapis dress. I think the bouquets would look stunning made up with purple roses, green spider dahlias, and fuchsia gerbera daisies. You can finish the look by wrapping the bouquet stems with purple ribbon and accenting with green or fuchsia pearl pins. I hope this helps! And P.S. the remodeled barn is absolutely gorgeous!
