Marsala for Your 2015 Wedding
As it officially feels like Winter in the floral world, I'm finding myself dreaming of using robust colors, beautiful textures, and soft, whimsical flowers. Alas, wedding season is soon upon us and I'm choosing to feast my eyes on the most beautiful materials in 2015, and Pantone's Color of the Year has got me inspired.
Marsala is no longer just a scent that fills a Mediterranean kitchen for Sunday dinner, it is now just about my favorite color of the season. With marsala's warm and inviting hues, it has us smitten over at Alicia K Designs!
From peonies and cymbidium orchids, to garden roses and dahlias, beautiful blooms in all varieties are getting their chance to shine. Marsala florals allow for absolutely beautiful photographs, bouncing off any background--light or dark.
Don't want to go all out with a darker hued bridal bouquet or centerpiece for your event? Lucky for the couple who are lovers of all blush-tone flowers, you can still add just a few peripherals of marsala florals to your blush-tone bouquet or centerpieces this season to add just a pop of this romantic color. Antique green, gossamer pink, peach, silver, and gold are still colors that form a perfect color palette with our new friend Marsala.
Still love the idea of using a light and springy floral palette using whites, pinks, creams, and peaches for your event? Not a problem. There are still so many ways to add marsala touches. Whether it is a satin ribbon on the bouquet or a sash on the dress, a rug beneath your altar, the groom's tie or bow tie, shoes that pop, lipstick, or the color of the font on your invites or menus, there are so many ways to incorporate a subtle pop of color.
