My Wedding - - PLANNING - By Vir­ginia Thomp­son www.flow­er­gallery.co.nz

Whether your flow­ers are ex­trav­a­gant or sim­ple, fol­low­ing a colour theme will make your wed­ding come to­gether vis­ually.

Your wed­ding theme colours should be used in ev­ery el­e­ment of your day, from your flow­ers to the ta­ble set­tings and dé­cor.

Yel­low is such a happy colour and it can seem the per­fect choice, es­pe­cially for a wed­ding tak­ing place dur­ing the au­tumn months.

Depend­ing on what part of the coun­try you live in, you can take ad­van­tage of Mother Na­ture’s fall colour scheme…deep red, cap­puc­cino, cop­per, yel­low, gold, brown and or­ange are all beau­ti­ful colours for an au­tum­nal wed­ding.

Yel­low in par­tic­u­lar shines with op­ti­mism, en­light­en­ment and hap­pi­ness. Shades of golden yel­low carry the prom­ise of a pos­i­tive fu­ture.

There are so many stun­ning op­tions when you’ve selected yel­low as your sig­na­ture wed­ding colour, from bright and bold to soft and so­phis­ti­cated. Yel­low is a fun way to add a pop of colour, mix­ing creams with rich yel­lows and frosted greens for a spring­time look.

Yel­low flower choices abound - roses, sun­flow­ers, ger­beras, cym­bid­ium orchids, lil­lies, dahlia, tulips, daisies and many more.

Us­ing any of these yel­low blooms with clas­sic navy is a great com­bi­na­tion. Yel­low also pairs well with slate grey or char­coal for a mod­ern pal­ette with just enough punch. Grey is still a pop­u­lar colour at wed­dings and, as an added bonus, it goes down well with the grooms as it’s not too frilly. Paired with yel­low, it’s a fresh, mod­ern, sim­ple yet el­e­gant wed­ding colour com­bi­na­tion.
