fuschia - sweet and light
the day we decided fuschia to be our bertandang theme, i've gotten few recommendations to combine the theme with black. honestly, i'm not really into black, esp for wedding, as the color tend to dominate the theme.
the traditionalist inside me telling the combination is speaking gothic combo (read: MAC Hello Kitty) than the sweet-look that i'm seeking for.
still, it's not easy to convince how those bright fuschia could live up our desired sweet theme. but i believe playing with shades of pink and soft purple would do some wonders. i've seen one in Indon bridal mag earlier, but they added up pink lighting to support the theme. our local, Wishing Tree did once for a chinese wedding, impressive one but i bet it's costly too, sigh, sigh.
i googled high and low for fuschia and pink shades pelamin deco and above pic is the closest i could find. it's not even gothic, the combo just as sweet as i wanted.
we're not looking for excessive deco since our hall is small. and regarding decorator, i've been YM-ing this lady for months and her quotation seems to fit our small budget for fresh flowers decor. there are few too offering cheaper package, but this lady has the plus point for her experience handling bright colors wedding decor (and it's not easy to get a vendor who semangat to layan your silly questions for months too hehe.....). afterall, they're still on paper, not much i could say until the big day itself, kan.
just a tip friends - dont get easily excited with quotation for fresh flower wedding deco. some are cheaper due to daun lebih banyak dari bunga, so do check...sample of their previous work would be your best guru to benchmark :)
but brides, always remember, things dont always come as per our plan. the best thing is to keep surveying while you have time and finally, pray for the best. cheers ;)
