Yellow is fresh and young. Full of hope and promise. Yellow can be sweet or elegant or playful.
I love planning events around color. Yellow has been growing in popularity as a wedding color and it's only going to continue to be a fresh and modern choice for some time to come. Pair it with black or gray for a sophisticated approach. Pair it with white or ivory for something subtle and elegant. Or for a simply fun and casual look, I love the idea of incorporating yellow gingham into a late spring or summer wedding. The possibilities are endlessly inspiring.
Okay, so you've decided to go with yellow, but you're not sure how to use it? Start by pulling together a collection of images that you are drawn to. Tear pages from magazines, find scraps of fabric. Look at catalogs, online and in your mailbox. Gather these little bits of inspiration and create a collage on paper or digitally. Also consider what type of wedding you envision for yourself. Will it be a very elegant affair or something more casual? Your vision will begin to take shape. Also consider what type of wedding you envision for yourself.
Now that you've figured out some of this stuff, you're ready to pick out the perfect invitation that will represent who you are and what type of a wedding your guests can expect. How fun!
