The very first aspect I decided on for my wedding was purple tulips, the really dark purple ones. They have always been my favorite. I decided to mix them with the dark pink ones, so my colors are dark purple, dark pink, and light green.
i figured if they'd be willing to share, i'd include dana's as well, although their greens may be different.

dana said...
Great idea! Our colors are dark purple and a soft green... our theme is Purple Rain. =D I really desperately love the new moon series carnations out of Australia... sooooo gorgeous.

on hotness...

i know, i know. bad blogger. i have a good excuse! my 17-year-old sister arrived on thursday and we painted the town as red as it's possible to paint a town with an underage sibling. especially one your dad would *kill* you if you messed up. (dad, i don't know *where* that tattoo came from, i swear.)

a tale from this weekend. we're out having dinner last night with my new boyfriend (!!) after we all went kayaking together. just sitting and chatting. talk turns, as it sometimes will, to the relative hotness of celebrities.
me: people from texas are hot.

she: matthew mcconaughey is definitely hot.

me: i don't even like blondes. he's eye candy.

bf: [helpfully] he's a surfer.

me+she: *hot!*

she: not a good actor, though. so dumb!

me: such a brick. but so hot. he should just remain silent. just walk around not saying a word.

she: *shirtless.*
thus, our new male celebrity campaign: Silent and Shirtless. ah, wisdom, from the mouths of babes.

she left for texas at the crack of dawn, so i will post a little random sampler in her honor, then get back on track with the color palettes.

adrienne: champagne and cornflower blue

Kyanite Wing Earrings
{ kyanite wing earrings by jewelofthel }

hi adrienne -- congratulations, and hope the wedding planning is going well!

Adrienne said...

I like this! My colors are champagne and cornflower blue and my wedding is August 31st! I am stuck on what to get my Mother and my FH's Mother and what to get his Father- any inspiration is much appreciated!

am thinking maybe for mum and mum-in-law, what about a reeeally nice framed photo, or some jewelry if they wear it, or -- oh, maybe a framed photo of the both of you as kids, with a note from you both in the middle (i did that to my mom [notice "did", not "gave", mwahaha] with photos of me and my sister for mother's day once, instant tears!) -- or -- anyone have ideas?

for his dad, maybe some cool cuff links (sea glass ones below are neat), or a similar framed photo with a handwritten note, or... you can check my little article on what to get bridal party folks on offbeatbride.com, and see if anything inspires you...

people's definition of cornflower seems to differ, so see what you think:
