Celebrating a February Wedding with Amethyst Accents

Jan 24, 2014

February is the month of the Amethyst, a delicate purple semi-precious gemstone that has long been valued for its beauty and splendor, particularly among royalty. If you’re having a wedding this February and are looking for an appropriately stunning theme, you can’t go wrong with this regal color! Here are a few of the ways you can incorporate amethyst into your wedding. 

Flowers:

No wedding is complete without flowers, and there is a large array of choices for your amethyst-themed wedding. Lively asters, supple purple roses, succulent hyacinths, and luscious lilies are just a few of examples of these living gems. However, you don’t have to be restricted to just using them in your wedding ceremony or reception decor. Think outside of the box and consider using amethyst-colored flowers in your wedding bouquet, bridesmaid dresses and even in the petals that the flower girl will sprinkled upon the aisle.

Choosing the right dresses for yourself and your supporting cast can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. One selection that’s sure to turn heads is the exquisite Sophia Tolli Y2713 wedding gown! Of course, you can’t forget the accessories. A pair of long pear drop chandelier evening earrings will help accentuate the look, especially when paired with amethyst hair accessories. With everyone wearing their February best, your big day will look like an imperial affair.

Choosing the Perfect Flower Girl Dress

Jan 10, 2014

Many large weddings, particularly those here in the south, have flower girls as part of the bridal party. Including the youngest member of your family or your fiancé’s family is a charming way to remember your special day. Often, flower girls are dressed as mini versions of the bride, in a white or ivory dress, with a contrasting sash that matches the color of the bridesmaid’s dresses.

Here at Dimitra Designs, we can help you find the ideal flower girl dress for your wedding, and ensure that both you and the youngest member of your bridal party will look beautiful and be happy. When choosing a flower girl dress, make sure that you stay with the style of the wedding. If you have a formal wedding, your flower girl’s dress also needs to be formal. In addition to keeping with your color theme, make sure the dress you choose is not too long, is comfortable and wrinkle-resistant.

Remember that little girls do not stay put very long and you want to keep her looking nice as long as possible. Make sure that both your flower girl and her parents like the dress, as this little detail will go a long way on your wedding day.
