and since I am still figuring out where I stand on said aisle-walking and roles of bridesmaids (or rather, roles of *insert title other than bridesmaids here*
sure, I like flowers. but it a non-formal type of way. more in a "hey look what I just found in the garden and ripped off the plant with my bare hands!" kind of way. which, let's be honest, is not the feeling you get from the majority of bridal arrangements.
and then I came across this image this morning.
and I was like "hey. I almost kinda sorta maybe could see me holding something like this on my wedding day."
and you know what my next thought was?
not, is lavender in season in september?
not, that would kinda be cool as I have heard that scent is the sense most closely associated with memory and women that had something fragrant in their flowers always remember their wedding day when they smell that flower now and that would be kinda cool.
it was, but purple isn't in our colour scheme.
let's back this up a bit now.
even when we were approaching our wedding by doing all the things you are "supposed" to do, we couldn't come up with a cohesive colour scheme, so to speak.
we ended up with a palette consisting of every colour.
granted we put a bit more emphasis on the blues and the greens.
(and the reds and the yellows.)
(and the oranges and the browns.)
than we did the purple, but we definitely didn't have a scheme as you see on martha stewart or similar.
so where this thought came from I have no freakin' clue.
I don't particularly like the fact that upon seeing fairly woodsy and untypical (is that a word?) bundle of lavender, my first thought was of colour schemes.
I don't really believe in colour schemes.
wedding or otherwise.
just ask ben.
my decorating mantra is "if nothing goes, everything goes".
for a colour scheme worry to pop up in my head makes me nervous.
wedding thoughts are obviously starting to go astray.
therefore, I am officially banning myself from looking at snippet & ink and their inspiration boards for at least two weeks.
(nothing against snippet & ink. these are merely bethany sanity saving measures and precautions.)
also, you like how this post cleanly segwayed from one neurotic thought to another, all neatly tied together with the subject of lavender?
