Happily Ever After by Sharon Harty is a romantic sand ceremony color palette that brings all the magic of a fairy tale to life. Perfect for a blended family sand ceremony, this unique palette will definitely appeal to the children in the family. The seven-layer palette is appropriate for six participants, so every key member of the wedding party can take part.
I created Happily Ever After as a homage to Cinderella, Snow White, and all those other fairy tale characters who end up living happily ever after with their prince. Even the modern bride appreciates the captivating story line of a fairy tale and she secretly wants to live out the role of princess-heroine.
Every bride wants to be cherished and adored by her life partner; every wife-to-be longs for a romance without end. A fairy tale fulfills our great need to see good triumphing over evil and love conquering all. In fairy tales, we find our ultimate wish fulfillment These are timeless stories of endless love and affection; the unity sand ceremony allows brides to live out the story line themselves.
Bringing Emotion to the Unity Sand Ceremony
Happily Ever After complements the wedding color themes of white, pink, purple, and green, and each hue of the palette has been carefully selected to elicit a certain emotion at the unity sand ceremony. Filled with optimism and a sense of celebration, this palette will bring joy and a sense of fun to your special day.
The apple green in the palette expresses a deep sense of hope, while the white represents the faith that the couple has about their future together in spite of numerous challenges and opposition. The purple, which is traditionally known for its association with wealth and opulence, symbolizes the life that the couple can forge together after the sand ceremony – a life rich in love and affection. The purple also represents the permanence of the marital union – long after the sand ceremony has taken place. The pastel pink and dark pink represent the overwhelming love that the bride and groom share – the exotic shades are a testament to their lasting commitment.
The Happily Ever After color palette works well with bouquets containing the following flowers: “Aqua” roses, Hyachintus orientalis “Anna Marie” (hyacincht), “Akito” roses, “Laminuette” roses, “Milano” roses, and white calla lilies.
