So thrilled to welcome back the charming pair of Love + Lavender, Aileen and Ellen, who have been guest posting every Thursday this month here on Classic Bride. Today the girls will be sharing one last pretty board with us - all about hydrangeas ... my favorite! Let's swoon together ... :
For our last post, we decided to highlight the hydrangea. Hydrangeas have full, lush blooms with muted colors that play well into a vintage summer wedding with subtle seaside elements. Soft blues and greys would keep the color palette subdued, while white chandeliers would twinkle from the trees, overlooking tables decorated with candle-filled seashells and antique blue mason jars filled with hydrangeas. The bride would wear a dress with layers of closely packed ruffles paired with classic white heels and a crystal headband. A spread of various cheeses and crackers would make perfect appetizers, whetting the guests' appetite for a delicious seafood meal. A white cake with intricate details would top the meal off perfectly.
