My gorgeous friend is getting married soon and i have been asked to help her out with the wedding and be a brides maid, so you can imagine my excitement. She wants to have a rustic theme, so i have been toying with a few ideas, for a Provencal themed wedding… use of dirty pinks, lace, linens, etc… Beautiful crisp white table cloths, crystal glassware and scalloped cutlery, is definitely the way to go. For rustic ideas, choose a colour palette that fits with the wedding theme. Earthy tones in deep yellow, sage, rust, tan and cinnamon are perfect when you want to create a rustic look. Neutral earth tones still create bold pops of color, and match well with rustic flowers and decor.
Lighting, all i can say is dim lights, and plenty of candles, always creates a beautiful glow in a room, always a flattering light, that cannot be replicated with lights.
When it comes to brides maid dresses there are some pretty awful dresses out there, i do not understand how one can come up with such dresses, the point of the brides maid dress is not to upstage the bride but to complement the bride.
