I have it on good authority that the hot colors being adopted left and right by those planning weddings for later in the year are yellow and gunmetal gray. Gunmetal? Bring it on, especially in the dresses! Yellow in the frockular area? Um…I can’t say I’m a fan. A brief looksie reveals gowns that are playful to the point of being juvenile. Add to that the fact that yellow was associated at some point in history, according to Snopes, with lying, unfaithfulness, and oath breaking.
And lets not forget this little rhyme: “Married in yellow, ashamed of your fellow.” Now that’s how you condemn a color, folks, at least as far as bridalwear is concerned.
But all is not lost, for there are a thousand and one ways you can incorporate the happiest of all colors into your wedding palette. Flowers are an obvious choice, seeing as how Mother Nature saw fit to create oh so many lovely yellow blooms. A yellow cake…it’s a thought. How about some yellow stationery, done four different ways?
This lovely set from Crane’s includes invitation cards, inner and outer envelopes, reception cards, and response cards, and weighs in at $456.00 for just the invites.
Based on my research, I’m going to venture a guess and say that this invitation from Brick House Paperie is less expensive than the one above. I could be wrong, though, as I couldn’t find the pricing page.
Majestic‘s web site is a little weird, but I’ve always loved their stationery. This folding docket invitation and envelope set is made of handmade paper embellished with crystals.
Designer Liz Coulson Libre created these awesome invites. The cards themselves are kind of pedestrian, but check out the bitchin’ envelopes! LOVE ‘EM!
