My colors are Tiffany blue, Canary Yellow, and Hot pink as an accent color.  I'm having a hard time figuring out how to incorporate the colors without being tacky lol!  Here is the run down.....Bridesmaids (2) are wearing tiffany blue chiffon dresses, Groomsmen (2) wearing Yellow linen shirts with white linen pants.  The gazebo sheers at the ceremony will be yellow.  I didn't think the two colors together would look right.  From pics the yellow is beautiful and my favorite color.  At the reception i would like to incorporate more tiffany blue but how?  Programs are in the tiffany color like my passport invitations.  I decided to buy my own chair sashes and table runners b/c i just couldn't justify $4/sash.  I will have 40 guest.  Here are the options I came up with...

 

1. Buy 20 yellow and 20 tiffany sashes.  then have the 8 tables alternating in color....meaning 4 tables tiffany and 4 yellow.

 

2. Buy all yellow and find another way to incorp the tiffany......but how? without excessivly increasing price.

 

the pink is in the flowers....ok i'm lame  thats all i have.....HELP!

what package option are you going with for the gazebo sheers/decor? are you doing the "exotic decor" option on the lomas site? i'm curious about whether or not they charged you extra for the yellow sheers?

 

thx! :)

Thanks funny...I'm doing almost the opposite.  My BM dresses (2) are Canary chiffon, then most of my decorations (sashes, table cloths, etc.) will be Tiffany.  I'm trying to find other ways to incorporate canary accents. 

 

I'm planning to find Satin Tiffany sashes and table runners, so if you end up incorporating that color more, maybe we could share some costs.  I'm planning for about 50 guests.

 

Also...my Passport inviations were Tiffany :)

I just sent my concierge an email, but when I last checked with him (in October), it was at 60% the first few weeks of May.  I'll let you know what he says now.

I found a web company www.weddingslinen.com and the organza sashes were $0.60/ea in yellow and light aqua ( whichi think is closest to tiffany but let me know what you think). The sashes in satin were $1.09. I sent them an email asking them to let me know which satin sash # code was closest color to tiffany because you can never tell on the computer. They did email me the organza color info for the runners. I am so willing to share since i will most likely not need them any more. Let me know......

 

Then i won't feel bad buying both colors (lol)....Yellow organza sashes for ceremony and then using Tiffany for the reception tables and chairs. I was thinking of putting the bridesmaid bouquets as center pieces and then maybe vases of lemons....something simple. Though these are all ideas not sure yet.  Hard to visualize everything without seeing it in person!

 

Anywhoo sharing the tiffany runners and sashes is a fabulous idea! Let me know....

I've also been trying to think of how to re-use the bridesmaids' bouquets as centerpieces. Do you think they'd just supply us with thin vases to put the in? Is it tacky to re-use? Or if not the bouquets, then other florals, like these hanging bouquets (or balls) that can double as ceremony/reception decor. I hate waste (money or stuff!) haha...

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
