A Sunny Wedding: Yellow Dresses and Bouquets
Push the envelope and with this Grecian-inspired column gown with bold graphic embroidery. By Angel Sanchez.
Cheerful Cotton Voile Dress
This pale yellow-green cotton voile dress with ruffled bodice by Peter Som is sunny and light -- beautiful on a bridesmaid or a casual bride. Here, it is paired with the yellow gemstone peridot.
Beribboned Merigold Dress
This portrayal of women takes its cue from Sargent's 1902 painting of the beribboned Acheson sisters. A copper necklace by Erickson Beamon splays across the waist of an off-the-shoulder dress by Michelle Roth.
What's more hopeful than a radiant yellow flower? Dainty details and robust color add up to a bouquet that with its cheery mound of narcissus, ranunculus, and chrysanthemum buds speaks of a bright future together. It also gives a sweet nod to your groom. Finished with scalloped fabric secured with yellow pearl-head pins and a simple bow, the handle is reminiscent of a dapper tuxedo shirt.
If there could be only one flower in the world, it would have to be the rose. Classic in form, the rose is the standard to which other flowers are held. What could be more romantic than an oversize bouquet of pale yellow roses? The roses -- 'Bianca' and 'Tineke' -- embrace pointed Eustoma buds; dendrobium orchids fall gently from white satin ribbon.
Glorious with bright blooms, this bride's bouquet has a hint of fluttery movement. The splendid combination of miniature daffodils, crocus, and oncidium orchids feels as cheerful as a summer day.
With a few vibrant splashes of color, a white cascade exudes an exotic splendor. Tropical yellow-and-pink cattelaya orchids punctuate ivory clouds of lisianthius and sweet peas.
Warm White and Yellow Bouquet
In this asymmetrical bouquet, barely yellow double narcissus mingle among classic white narcissus with yellow cups and tubular freesias that have golden throats. Wide and narrow-striped grosgrain ribbons with a pinned-on vintage button tie the tailored mix.
Retro styles for bridesmaids are cheery in creams and yellows. Gowns made with classic fabrics (a Swiss-dot overlay or vintage-looking floral print) and details (bands of ribbon, keyhole necklines) are elegant yet sexy thanks to tea-length hemlines.
Good as Gold
A mix of exuberant gold and yellow flowers appear regal in a bouquet unbound by symmetry. This eclectic array is composed of lady's slipper orchids, four types of cymbidium orchid, and mimosa, all mingling effortlessly.
White Felt Bouquet Cuff
How do you make something so charming? With a hole punch and white wool felt. Then add yellow garden roses and sweet-smelling narcissi, and tie with a big white bow.
In a gilded cascade, beaded florets, strung by hand, glint like tiny holiday lights amid cymbidium orchids, bupleurum, gloriosa lilies, and lady's mantle; velvety gold-tipped cockscomb lend their own luster. The stems are wrapped in a wide gold band of satin ribbon and adorned with 'something old': a star-like rhinestone brooch.
