Another bouquet style we explored for “An Evening of Elegance” bridal soiree at the Taj, Boston was the unusual but beautiful color combination of pale yellow and silver. I am so in love with these two colors together. Both of these particular shades of yellow and silver are light in terms of their value (the amount of lightness/darkness in the color for you color theory folks out there!), when paired together each hue heightens the beauty of the other.

The design for this bouquet really just has a few elements – just pale yellow ranunculus, yellow cymbidium orchids, and dusty miller leaves. Each element is essential, the ranunculas give the romantic ruffled feel; the cymbidiums form the architecture and structure; and the dusty miller makes the yellow pop in a way it might otherwise not.

Above is a closer detail of how we wrapped the handle. Simply, with crinkle silk in a pewter color, paired with chartreuse pins and thin grey velvet ribbon.

I’d love to do a wedding with this color palette carried throughout – lots of silver lanterns, candles – glowy and gorgeous. What’s also interesting about this palette is that is almost season-less.

It could be perfect for a winter or spring wedding especially, but even for summer it would be lovely and surprising.
