My friends, I am exhausted! Today at the museum I assisted with a children's party, ate way too much cake, worked as security for a press conference with the attorney general, and got hit on by a very creepy guy. My feet are so sore and I'm daydreaming about pretty but expensive shoes that make my feet feel great after a long day.
I had a feeling that I would be tired tonight so I prepared some pictures to show you. As most of you know, I'm engaged!! It is terribly exciting and I am so happy. We haven't set a date yet because I've been busy with school and my placement, and Pete is freaking out over his multiple Fringe shows this summer. We haven't even settled on a time of year yet, though it will be either spring or fall (I dislike hot, muggy weather and our fathers have forbidden a winter wedding). I can't plan anything yet but I can daydream and I've been thinking a lot lately about colour schemes. If we get married in the fall it's easy; I want to work with the colours in fall leaves.
Here is a collection of random pictures that caught my eye:
The top picture is my inspiration for the colour scheme. Also, I have my heart set on a bouquet of red roses.
If we decide to get married in the spring my thoughts aren't as clear. I love the beautiful green of new buds on trees, but green doesn't always look good on people.
I also like yellow, which also doesn't always look good on people.
I have also thought about navy blue with yellow as an accent but I couldn't find any pictures as examples.
So, some help please. I'm totally waffling on this whole spring colour thing. I know that blue would be an obvious choice but too many of my friends used blue as their colour scheme (which was lovely but I want to do something different). Pete is morally opposed to brown in weddings so that's off the table. He's not a big fan of pink, and our Alma Mater's colours are purple and white so purple probably wouldn't work, except that maybe light purple and blue might look nice.
Thoughts please! Advice from people who have chosen their wedding colours would also be greatly appreciated.
