Er, I must confess... I had no clue that weddings had colour schemes. But I must also confess to knowing very little about weddings at all.
So in order to have an answer ready for anyone that asked, I picked out some grey and green invitations that I fancied and ran with it. It felt like a pretty good starting point.
And you know what??? It worked (if I do say so myself!). The green was a lovely pop of much needed colour in an otherwise somewhat dreary month and the grey worked as a beautiful backdrop for my brightly hued flowers. I was pleased with the outcome.
What I was also pleased with however, was this incredibly thoughtful gift made by my buddies Lynn and Kerry. (Remember them???)
Most definitely inspired by my wedding colours.
Ah. Maze. Ing.
Wedding colours or not, I flippin' love it.
The grey yarn and the green Christmas balls? A perfect blend of contrasting colour and texture. SO beautiful.
Since the colours were just so perfect for my big day, I didn't hesitate for a moment to incorporate this wreath into my wedding decor. It hung proudly on the podium where the speeches were made, for all of our lovely guests to see.
|This wreath contains luxury fibres only- HELLO!|
So thank you dear friends. I love it like crazy and it will hang on many doors for years to come.
I appreciate you parting with all of the beautiful yarn from your stash (talk about stash busting!!!), and I appreciate all of those glue-gun inflicted blisters I saw on your poor hands. Those blisters must have seriously hindered your Christmas knitting productivity levels and I can't thank you enough.
OH! And I almost forgot to share one little detail with you.
Silly me... how could I?!?!?
I urge you to take a moment to check out the tag that was included on the wreath.
And who says knitters aren't sassy people?!?!?!
Talk about starting off my marriage with a BANG!
Much love. ♥
