Holy mole-y! Funny how when you’re being a good aunt, working a full time job, cooking dinner every night to be a good girl and not spend money on take out AND planning a craft fair (shh!) the blog seems to get pushed to the side. Don’t worry, I’m here now.
And we’re gonna talk wedding colors again!
Wedding Guide #2: Mustard and Midnight
Today’s palette is bright and punchy (YELLOW!) while chic and sophisticated (BLACK!) It’s a bumblebee wedding and you’re invited.
Lovely Yellow Bridesmaids Cake Toppers, $18.99 from onecozynest on Etsy.
Yellow is a genuinely innocent color. It’s heartwarming, opens your eyes and has a vintage feel to it no matter what. You try wearing something yellow and not feeling the slightest bit ’70s! These cake toppers are super sweet, and although I can’t imagine putting the whole darn wedding party on the cake (unless you have a buche de noel or something) I would venture to say your WEDDING DRESS should be yellow and one of these pretty ladies should stand up there. With hopefully a cake topper with a groom dressed like this:
Antique Victorian Tuxedo Jacket, $85 by getupvintage on Etsy.
Although your hubby’s arms should be about a half an inch longer to pull of this look, this antiquated tuxedo jacket paired with floppy bow tie is modest, lovable and reeks of the quality tailors used to put in men’s dress-up duds. Who says everyone’s tux has to match? Quality over quantity, I always say.
Gamboge Silk Skinny Tie, $18.95 from rabbitstop on Etsy.
But if bow ties aren’t your thing, you can coordinate the man with the rest of the scenery by pulling honey mustard in to his neckwear. Skinny or traditional, a pop of color will resonate in wedding photos, especially when it’s designed to make Mrs. Wedding Day look totally coordinated and gorgeous.
You are My Sunshine Print, $15.00 from FarnumInkStudio on Etsy.
Let’s talk wedding presents. If your friends are anything like mine, they’re getting hitched left and right with utter disregard for my bank account. A piece of artwork meant to coordinate with their colors (just ASK, you know she won’t stop talking about the differences between every kind of yellow if you act even remotely curious!) framed with an inexpensive, but classy frame from Michael’s will remind them of their wedding day every time they pass it on the way to the loo.
