Tiffany Gets Married
Posted on: Thursday, April 7, 2011
When we set out planning our wedding, we both knew we wanted a lot of color and a whimsical, but still tasteful kind of vibe.
Since I love all color (seriously, all of it!), it was really difficult for me to decide on a color palette. Luckily, there's this wonderful site called design-seeds.com, which consists of color palette after color palette. That is where we finally found one that spoke to us.
Don't be afraid to use pre-set color palettes when doing a room design in your home, or any type of design, or event coordinating (baby showers, parties, etc.). This helps keep a consistent theme, and the consistency is what makes even brightly colored palettes with more than just 2 or 3 colors, aesthetically pleasing and cohesive.
We picked the bridesmaid's dresses, groomsmen's suspenders, table linens, and even desserts using our wedding palette. This made for a colorful, but well put together look.
For our wedding, I did a lot of DIY projects. My big project and the one I started with because it would be a focal point of the wedding, was our fabric backdrop. It would serve as the backdrop for our vows, so we knew we wanted it to be special. We wanted it to pop and have visual impact without being too invasive. A flowy fabric back drop was the perfect solution. I had seen it done before on some wedding blogs, so I studied the pictures and created my own version.
With the leftover fabric, I created the bridesmaids bouquets (top right), and the groomsmen's boutonnieres (middle right), and my colorful shoe clips (middle photo).
I also had seen many different styles of bridal bouquets emerging, and I fell in love with the one made from brooches. Lucky for me, I already had a small collection of them. Then I told my grandmother about my bouquet, and she gave me 10 pins of hers! Not only will my bouquet be around for a long while, it has pieces that are dear to me sprinkled thoughout it.
Our wedding day was colorful, vibrant, fun and memorable. But most of all, it was us. It was our style, things we loved, and our personalities shined through.
Don't be afraid to take your own personal style, favorite colors, and things you love, and apply them to your home. Perhaps even try some DIY projects like making your own draperies or pillows. You will be proud of the end result and will revel in your home. After all, it's your home; it should reflect you and the things you love!
