A fresh look at Spring.

A color trend keeps coming up in meetings with brides-deep blue, yellow, white, and grass-green. For some reason, it reminds me of my mom's blue willow china that she used for holiday celebrations when I was a kid. But the green gives it a new look-fresh and chic. I love it! It is important to classify the shade of green here. I call it "grass green." Not new, light, Spring green, but the rich, Summer grass-green that we know here in Tennessee. The kind you want to have a picnic on, the kind that says warm weather is here for a while. Umm, can you tell I have a thing for green? That's for another post!

Here's a sampling from Sarah Williams' wedding in May 2010.

I would like to have pockets in all the dresses I own! How cute is that!

For the bridesmaids, a wildflower mix of green herbs, yellow ranunculus, yellow craspedia (the balls), white waxflower, fiddlehead fern, and lavender.

For Sarah, a mixture of white peonies, ranunculus, anemones, waxflower, lavender, craspedia, and herbs.
