The wedding flowers were lovely. The picked up on the pink and Burgundy color scheme nicely, without copying it directly. The bridal bouquet was a small but striking arrangement of pale pink tulips set off with a few dark red blooms. The floral arrangements scattered on the tables were more subdued, but just as pretty. It was amazing how much the flowers affected all the rest of the decorations, standing out in elegant simplicity as the focal point.
The wedding cake, on the other hand, was hideous. Who on earth would think it was a good idea to make a cake with lime green frosting? It didn’t even fit the color scheme. Maybe they were trying to go for a seasonal springtime theme, with all it’s connotations of beginnings and fertility and whatnot, but lime green wasn’t the way to go. It was especially not the way to go when it was covered with brick red flowers. They may have been intended to match the wedding flowers, but for one thing, the color was all wrong, and for another, well . . . green. How the wedding planners could get the flowers so right and the cake so wrong is quite mystifying.
