Fairy Tale Weddings - Horse Drawn Carriage - Inspired by Cinderella
Each year Pantone releases a set of colors that they believe will be huge hits in the following Spring and Summer, they also include a color of the year to go with this list. Everything that is sold in colors are generally designed with these set of colors in mind. So for your wedding that means that bridesmaid dresses, registry items (you know that blender you want) and other items are based also around these particular colors.
When creating my Fairy Tale Wedding Invitation which was inspired by Cinderella's Carriage and Horse, I didn't really think about the colors of blue that were so prominent with Cinderella. I knew I was making the design to go as a story-book theme and I knew that I absolutely wanted this beautiful Peach Echo that Pantone has created for this year. I thought about the beauty of the bridesmaids as they walked down the aisle in this lovely color. I thought that it went well with the original dress that Cinderella had made for herself to go to the ball, you know the one that was destroyed by her evil step sisters?

Alfred Angelo - Cinderella Style 262 which is promised to come soon. This is the Cinderella dress for this year. I'm unsure if the previous years dresses will remain available or not. Nor am I sure when this dress will actually become available as their website has little to no information.
Alfred Angelo - Disney Maidens Style 533 which is also promised to come soon. The thing that I don't like about Alfred Angelo is they make these beautiful Disney Maidens dresses for your bridesmaids to wear but they never actually indicate which dress is to go with what theme. It's kind of aggravating to me but that's only because I like things to match. These are quite lovely and seem to match the Cinderella dress well though I suppose you could use any of the designs if you wanted. Or you could go with something completely different.
I am by no means a flower expert. I think they are pretty, they smell nice and they make me sneeze sometimes. So when you don't know much about flowers you turn to a florist. I found this great site online B/A Florist that has so much useful information about colors and weddings and what flowers will work with what colors. Seriously, I love this site. They recommend the following: "flowers available in peach shades are roses, ranunculus, alstroemeria, calla lilies, and peonies, just to name a few." So clearly there are some additional options, I would definitely suggest that you check with your florist when planning your wedding to get the look you want. I also suggest doing a quick Google search of any of these flowers I think you will be pleasantly surprised by the beauty that you will find.
There are so many beautiful designs and ides that you can use for your perfect fairy tale wedding. Cinderella is the princess I will be focusing on this week even as I create designs for other Disney Princesses. My next post will be an inspiration post for cakes. I love cake, especially wedding cakes. The designs that you can do will blow you out of the water. Look forward to that tomorrow.
