I have been so busy recently which is surprising for this time of year but also very exciting.
However today I had a lovely afternoon putting together more quotes and ideas for our 2010 weddings. Having quite a few citrus themed weddings for this year with hot pink, lemon, lime and mango I decided it was time to streamline this colour combo.
Today I was researching a lemon and fuchsia theme with, I think, striking results much more impact that too many colours, which of course we still love but combine these colours with black and the finished look is not only stunning but rather chic. This colour combination also looks very smart with navy, so if you are wondering what colour the bridesmaids or the boys should wear consider this for your scheme.
I do feel with 2010 weddings that brides working within budgets should reconsider the neglected chrysanthemums for their weddings, not only are they available all year, hardy, fabulously showy but also a great flower for tight budgets.
Place a few in a jug, create a ball of them for the top of a tall vase or place one in you hair and a statement has been made.
Such a huge range of colours too, but I can relate to the association with these flowers as for me they are reminiscent of my childhood in the 70's with my revolting yellow and brown chysanth curtains, famous from M&S, I think every person in their 40's will remember them! My sister had the pink and mauve bedroom set which was far nicer than mine!!
Let's hope the chrysanth will drop this image for 2010 and start to become the fashionable affordable flower particuarly as the vintage look rolls forward from the 40's to the 70's.
