Dress Your Girls...

Dress Your Girls...

in green. This is for Ali who requested a green/brown outfit with a summery feel for her own garden party wedding.

I've chosen a floaty cocktail dress in a light fabric such as silk with jewellery in a lighter, contrasting shade to lift the outfit and give it that summery feel. Metallics always work well for summer weddings and the gold shoes really compliment the green. I've kept the brown to a minimum so as not to make it all too dark, but you could use a lighter shade-perhaps a toffee colour of which you could have their bouquets wrapped in ribbon or tie in with a sash around the dress.
Note that the florals are very fresh with white and yellow flowers-I struggled to find a bouquet that really fitted the outfit. Ideally I'd recommend something along the lines of black and white anemones, with chocolate cosmos and a brown rose such as Marrakesh to bring in more of the brown.

I hope this gives you some inspiration Ali!
