It’s the finish of the month which indicates it’s time for Ask Ms Polka Dot! Drop me a line if you’d like some suggestions or a query answered!


just asking yourself if you could give me some concepts of what colour shoes my bridesmaids could put on as they are wearing vibrant yellow dresses.

Our wedding is in summer season, and the reception is at a restaurant on the water. The dress is by Alfred Sung, I’ve attached a picture of it… but the yellow isnt that green!

We had been thinking perhaps have the colour scheme as yellow, white and lavender purple…. would the tan shoes suit that?

Is the lavender colour scheme going to work?

Alfred Sung Yellow Dress Ask Ms Polka Dot What Shoes With A Yellow Dress?

What a lovely fresh colour scheme for a summer season wedding! Yellow and lavender are opposite on the colour wheel, so this scheme will function extremely well.

Either way, 1 colour ought to be the dominant 1 (maybe the yellow, as you are utilizing it for your dresses) and lavender really should then be the secondary colour which you use slightly less of in your decor.

There will be lots of coloured shoes coming into the shops for spring/summer time, so since your colour scheme is so summery, I  really feel now that a tan would NOT suit your scheme. How about a nude shoe (very wearable following the wedding and more summery), or even a yellow shoe? If you have issues matching a yellow shoe to the dress, attempt Shoes Of Prey for handmade shoes,  – where you style the shoe – really reasonably priced. They will even send you leather samples (for a little fee) so that you can match to the colour of your dress. Definitely not a white shoe – which would appear as well stark and ‘old’ for your girls.
Maybe you could assume about wearing yellow shoes to match the dresses of your maids?

Flowers – assume of lavender, purple and lilac sweet peas, lilacs, white daisies with yellow centres, with lots of white blooms and the occasional yellow bloom, tied with patterned lavender ribbon. Could your girls put on a thing lavender in their hair – the fabric of which matches the fabric you have tied your bouquets with?
Make the girls’ bouquets featuring lavender and white with a touch of yellow, and your bouquet featuring white and yellow with a touch of lavender colour.

Think of your table settings being all white with white cloths, white crockery, sparkling glassware. white chairs. Add in white and yellow, or white and lavender candles, in groups of diverse sizes, with some candles getting fat and tall, and others getting smaller and thinner to add interest. Add in your yellow and white flowers here with some lavender blooms scattered sometimes throughout your vases.
Or you could make runners in lavender and white, or yellow and white to go down the centres of the tables, over the white tablecloths. Once more, assume of employing the exact same fabric as in your bouquet tie fabric.

You could make a bower (or arch) from wisteria (mauve and white) blossoms if the ceremony is outdoors as the focal point of your ceremony. These blossoms are a vine which droops properly and smells beautiful. Attempt jasmine as effectively and lots of greenery.

Favour boxes could be in lilac and yellow – either patterned or plain, or white tied with lavender and yellow bows. Attempt jelly beans in yellow (lemon flavour) or lavender (berry flavour), or other lollies. Lemon butter, or berry jam could be embellished with patterned lilac or yellow covers on their lids – the identical patterned fabric you use elsewhere (as in your table runners for instance, or the hairpieces for the girls).

You could attempt utilizing varying lengths of ribbon in white,  yellow and lavender tied to chairs, from tree branches, from a flower arch. Lots of white paper lanterns would appear great with this look bobbing in the summer season breeze.

I’m positive you could think of numerous far more tips – these are just to get you started. Feel of it as decorating a space – but you can be a small far more ‘over the leading’ with your person elements to produce a celebration atmosphere!

Finest of luck with your decorating – and have a wonderful wedding day.
