    We’re loving this color! It’s powerful and soft at the same time.

    My mum had this colour scheme in her second wedding back in 1988 so I’m not too sure about it – is it making a come back? I do love splashes of colour in wedding schemes/themes but I prefer bright, bold colours that are in your face rather than soft, delicate colours. Each to their own of course 🙂 It would definitely suit a vintage themed wedding.
