Blue is a magical color. It makes me think of turquoise tropical waters and sparkling blue sapphires. It’s a royal color, yet oddly universal, because just about everyone – or someone they know – adores blue.
In Pantone’s Spring Fashion Color Report, celebrity makeup artist Collier Strong said: “I believe if I had to pick one color that would look good on anyone it would have to be Blue. Perhaps, because it’s all around us in so many shades – the sky, the sea, it’s nature’s perfect color.” I have to agree with Collier! Blue is supremely flattering. Perhaps that’s why so many fashion designers utilized blues and green tones in their spring collections and going forward into the year.
Light blue flatters and uplifts the spirit; navy is classically cool and traditional; stirring memories of a sea of summer white and tailored navy blazers at Sunday afternoon church socials and lawn parties. Oasis blue? Ah! That’s a rich, elegant jewel of a color. Wear it only when you are ready to receive as many compliments as you can possibly handle.
What is color mood are you in? Are you a romantic soul who is feeling especially romantic as you plan for your wedding day? The “Twilight at Sea” 7-layer color palette is the perfect themed-palette for romantic souls yearning for the softly muted hues that love-struck couples from a romantic bygone era encountered while strolling the misty moors at twilight. It is right in step for use as a layering palette for six wedding participants and a wonderful choice for blended family sand ceremonies.
Romantic couples planning a blue, white, or lavender color-themed wedding can utilize my “Twilight at Sea” sand ceremony color palette by paying special attention to detail, such as asking guests to add their “John Hancock” to Beverly Clark’s La Fleur Collection Guest Book enchantingly layered in vintage-styled lace and silk petals with a stunning handcrafted flower as its focal point. Clark’s book sets the tone for a romantic wedding filled with lovely subtle washes of tranquil color.
To further weave your romantic color choices throughout your wedding reception’s setting, complement your “Twilight at Sea” color scheme with lovely lavender Shimmer Lace Hearts Filigree Paper Cupcake Wrappers, serving as a dainty and divine option for adding a delicate “pop” of lavender. The joyful mood is further reinforced with a “gift” of a Ceramic Butterfly Dishes – a delightful accent for outdoor weddings.
