Need help with decorations (flowers, colors, etc.)
Posted 29 August 2007 - 02:31 PM
I don't really have a color scheme, but I would like to tie together the flowers, linens, cake and invitations. My STD's were blue and my sisters (who are my Matron or Honor and Maid of Honor) will be wearing whatever colors they want. (One sister already has her dress which is mostly light blue, with some green, red and yellow in it - very cool.) My other sis is preggers so she won't get her dress until early next year. It won't be a typical bridesmaid dresses, she'll probably shop in Bloomingdales, Nordstroms, or something like that.
Anyway, so, it's not that I have to keep blue, but I really like the dark blue linens from the Hilton - which is a much different blue than my sister's dress. (If I could attach a picture here, I would - seriously, I can't figure it out.)
This is what I was thinking for the reception, I hope my explanation makes sense:
1. Guests tables to have dark blue linens with light green and white flowers in square vases (which will match my sisters bouquets), light green paper for the menus on white napkins (and possibly dark blue chair ties.)
2. Sweetheart table to also have the same linens but to have pink, orange, green and white flowers to match my bouquet.
3. Chinese lanterns in the pool with white lights on the surrounding trees, votive candles on all tables and votive candle luminars to line the pathways in our area.
4. Three tiered white round cake with a light blue ribbon boarding the first and third tier, and a light green ribbon boarding the 2nd tier. With orange and pink flowers on the top (instead of a cake topper.)
5. Invitations to be light green (to match the menu cards.)
As far as the ceremony is concerned, I will probably have some kind of flower arrangement at out "alter." Plus white chair covers with sand colored ties and a single flower bud in each of the ties (all different colors - orange, pink & green.)
Is this tacky? Will it work? I know it's hard to visualize which is why I need advice from those of you that are good with this sort of thing. My WC is on vacation for a few weeks and I wanted to have an idea to present to her when she returns.
Thanks for your help!

Can you describe the blue colors by comparing to them to something that we all would know. Like Diet Pepsi can blue..or something? That might give me a better visualization. Or attach pics!!!

It would be nice if you could find something (paper, fabric?) that is a really cool pattern that ties all of the colors together in one thing, and then just use that for the smallest accents. I'm not sure what or where though...

Ok, so this is a picture of the Dolphin Terrace at the Hilton where I will be having my reception. I love the blue table cloths but I think I would do light green and white flowers for centerpieces. What do you think?

Light green table cloths? Or flowers? I think those blue ones are great and if you put light green and white up against it (in flowers, napkins, menus, etc) it will look really crisp.
