The Flowers & Decor
Once the venue was selected, Mario happily left me with decoration duties. We envisioned the space as more romantic, intimate and laid-back like if you were on a summer date. For this theme, we combined soft hues, delicate lighting, chandeliers, calligraphy and soft flowers.
Picking theme colors was quite simple, I did not care so much about trends. Our hero color was to be blue or dusty blue in line with the color of the engagement ring – sapphire. We also wanted to include both gold and silver tones to match with Mario’s wedding band. Finally, white splashed across flowers and other details to highlight our star signs belonging to the same astrological birthstone – moonstone.
Since the venue itself provided a lot of green color, we wanted to use simple white with dusty blue tones to add extra pop. Flowers were used together by our wedding planner and consisted of mostly white roses, white lilies, some greenery and for blue and gray accents we used Dusty Miller Flat and Brunia Berry. We also used some blue accent flowers on tables centrepieces and large floor vases with more bushy setup of white flowers. We kept flower decoration at a minimum essential number to give an extra wedding feel.
