@ armourpure, a valentine wedding! Sweet.

Me thinks that since the trad and white are on 2 separate days, the colors should be different!!! Here's why.

Your friends buy red and champagne asoebi for traditional and you want them to buy red and champagne asoebi for white, the following day, albeit a different design. This wouldn't be fair!

My Suggestion - in keeping with the spirit of valentine, retain your champagne and red theme for the 14th. The couple and friends can still use the same color but the difference will be, one color will be dominant for one and the other color dominant for the other. For example, if the couple's dominant color is champagne, the friends and family will be dominant in red.

For your white wedding, look for another color combo then add a touch of red to it.

This way, your color theme is not cliché and boring!

Okay ladies, I noticed most brides opt for simple round bouquets. Is there a reason?

Please I need a second or third eye on these cascading bouquets. I'm in the final leg of preparations and want to stand out from my B-Maids (with small round bouquets) so I'm leaning towards these teardrop style. The purple one is my style, but I fear its too L-O-U-D for a wedding while the white one is too plain with orchids, and the feathers put me off. What do you think? ...too dramatic? grin Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion dear.
Actually, there won't be aso Ebi for the traditional. the aso Ebi will be for the white wedding. Can you suggest any matching colour that can be added? Thanks once more.

Preferably this beneath;

Re: Your Questions On Wedding Planning Answered! by Rocktation(f): 10:05am On Dec 05, 2013
It's just my choice though..which could be based on the fact that I like 'em catchy things, hence my choice for the predominant yellow.

Where are our other brides-to-be? No December weddings? smiley

Thank u Rocktation wedding colour is white, red n gold how shld I combine it?
Re: Your Questions On Wedding Planning Answered! by Rocktation(f): 2:29pm On Dec 05, 2013
For white wedding? Well, I'm thinking groomsmen; white suits on red shirts, red ties and red pocket squares.
Bridesmaid; red dress with touches (or an average proportion) of white, gold sashes and ribbons, white gloves (if they so desire)
Groom; Black suit on white shirt, red tie and a red pocket square.
But the white though...You may have trouble convincing people to do white suits. undecided
Re: Your Questions On Wedding Planning Answered! by BabyPosh: 1:46pm On Dec 09, 2013
@ nwapastor,you can always incorporate the white colour in you decor rather than get people to wear it,as rocktation mentioned,gettin people to wear white might be a bit difficult and tacky.let d bridal train wear red dresses wiv a touch of champagne,cud be their sandals/hairfascinators.the groomsmen with black suits,white shirts and red or champagne pocket square wud look dapper.here's a pic of a fellow nairalander wedding recently proudly decorated by me

Wonderful thread. Very informative. Please I'm wearing blue wrapper with peach colored blouse and head-tie (as seen in the attached picture). can i use orange/gold colored neck-piece? Please what color of shoes/handbag should i use bearing in mind that there are some silver stripes in my wrapper an i wouldn't want to really pronounce the silver since its not part of my color combo. Thanks very much.

Re: Your Questions On Wedding Planning Answered! by Rocktation(f): 12:57pm On Dec 10, 2013
No, you mayn't use orange neck piece. Use coral, if you wanna go off. On the other hand, silver is preferable to gold.

And no, I wouldn't want the silver either, if the neck piece would not be silver. Use blue shoes with purse or peach purse and shoes. You cannot go wrong.
