Lemonade

Spring is in the air and I for one am finding myself drawn to anything bright and beautiful – from the yellow daffodils gingerly peeking through in our back garden to the Scandi-style sailor coat my husband bought two winters ago (which I have been desperate to steal ever since!). If you’re thinking of having some bold hits of colour in your wedding styling, then yellow could be your new best friend. Celebrated in many cultures as the colour of happiness and harmony, it brings warmth to even the greyest of days. Perfect if the weather is typically Scottish!

Yellow wedding dress and bouquet with yellow colour accent

Like the thought of breaking with tradition and wearing a coloured wedding dress? This delicate yellow lace mini-dress by Marchesa would be perfect for an intimate summer wedding. Or you could include a subtle touch of yellow in your flowers – I love the little hit of colourful Craspedia in this bouquet, which also includes Roses, Hydrangeas, Eustoma, Eucalyptus, Sweet Peas & Scabiosa (the latter of which is way more pretty than it sounds!).

yellow bridal accessories and jewellery

You can also add a little colour pop with your accessories – boho brides will love this Arabella rose crown by Rock n’ Rose, while this Tiffany engagement ring is proof that yellow diamonds can be a girl’s best friend. And this stunning statement necklace by Crezus and available at Thou Shalt Covet has our inner magpie singing.

yellow, lemon and sunshine themed candle, nail polish, perfume and makeup

Burn this Neom Happiness candle (with White Neroli, Mimosa and Lemon) during your bridal preps for a beautiful fragrance that will have you thinking of warm summer days. And how about a sunshine yellow nail polish for you and the girls. We are loving Seven Dials by Nails Inc at the moment here at We Fell In Love HQ. We also love Shu Uemura’s vivid yellow matt eyeshadow and the newly launched (and spring inspired) Ostara fragrance by Penhaligon.

yellow bridesmaid and flower girl dress

You could dress your best girls in this yellow floor-sweeping maxi dress from Coast – with its lace racer neck detail it’s feminine while also being pretty damn hot. And if you’ve got littlies in your bridal party, check out Monsoon’s super cute styles for flower girls.

If you love the idea of bright flowers with a fragrant scent, then freesias could be the perfect fit. The bouquet pictured above features a double freesia (it has a second set of petals giving it extra frill). Available all year-round and in most colours, they are a fantastic, and very affordable, option. You could also use yellow as an accent colour in your styling. I love the way that Craspedia – or Billy Balls as they are sometimes known – have been used to give a modern twist to the traditional thistle buttonhole here. (Flowers by Planet Flowers).

And finally, I couldn’t finish without mentioning a few hot little numbers that would be perfect in your honeymoon suitcase! For starters, how cute is this yellow camera iPhone case by Moschino?! This yellow shopper bag by Zara inspired a handbag shopping trip of my own. And I’m also loving this Smythson textured-leather travel set and these Elsie cracked-leather pumps by J.Crew. I’d be so tempted to sneak them onto my wedding gift list.
It’s safe to say that I heart yellow. Which colour is making you smile just now? Christina x



It’s Friday

We’re In Love

Here’s what has caught our eye this week

Greek-Scottish-wedding-by-Karolina-kotkiewicz-033

It’s been another seriously beautiful week on the blog! From the Scottish couple who held their wedding on the Greek island of Rhodes to the US-based couple who used We Fell In Love to help plan their gorgeous garden wedding.

We also loved sharing this DIY Scottish wedding party, with a seriously cute four legged friend.

And don’t forget to check out this post if you’re looking for ideas for alternative readings for your ceremony.
