For the modern bride and groom who still have a fascination with the old-fashioned, the Vintage Royal Wedding sand ceremony color palette by Sharon Harty offers the perfect mix of the trendy and traditional.
The pastel shades of lavender and light blue that I used for this sand ceremony palette are ideal for vintage weddings; yet, the purple and tangerine orange accents add a contemporary feel. The color mood is both dramatic and romantic and complements wedding color themes of light blue, white, and all shades of purple.
Add a royal touch to your sand ceremony and boost the wow factor!
Since purple is associated with the concepts of royalty, wealth, power, and opulence, this palette symbolizes regal authority – an appropriate theme for 2011. Both the purple and the tangerine are considered particularly hot colors this year. This six-layer palette is designed for five participants; therefore, this is an ideal sand ceremony palette for blended families who are hoping through the wedding ceremony to become united in love.
There is deep meaning within the Vintage Royal Wedding color palette. For the colors convey traditional core values such as commitment, quality, and consistency. Yet, the modern look of this sand ceremony palette can also symbolize progressive values such as innovation and personal evolution.
Marriages fail when couples do not allow one another the space to evolve, accusing each other of changing like the wind. A more realistic mindset is to see our lives as a journey of transformation allowing both the man and the woman to grow, even make mistakes. The emphasis is on acceptance and cherishing one another through the peaks and valleys of life.
For Christians, life’s journey is meant to be a road of personal transformation in which one strives to be Christ-like in thought and behavior. We learn to be salt and light to one another, bringing beautiful change to our world and to ourselves.
The bride and the groom work to support positive change in one another’s lives, trusting that God will give them the eyes of faith, to see life the way He does. Often a paradigm shift is all that is necessary to bring the light of Christ into our lives and to transform our sorrow into celebration.
This sand ceremony color palette is perfect for bouquets which contain the “Reagan White” chrysanthemum, Hyachintus orientalis “Mont Blanc” (hyacinth), “Akito” roses, Easter Lilies and white calla lillies.
