Purple Invitations

Stunning colour combination with the chartreuse and magenta. The purple is exactly what I'm looking for as it's warm and rich. I love the simple layout of this invitation... I just can't remember where I found the picture so if anyone wants to claim it please leave a comment or email!

Bridesmaid Dresses

Diane Von Furstenberg

Michael Kors

Purple for the bridesmaid dresses. Their whole Autumn '08 collection was a graceful ode to the 40's and 50's. On or past the knee skirt length and nipped waist with a belt.

All Things Scottish

Living in Scotland and marrying a Scot made me wonder if we should go with the traditional castle-thistle-kilt gig. The kilt was ruled out quite early on due to lack of "pretty knees"; the castle, although magical in thought, proved to be a rather expensive and pretty gloomy looking whim which leaves us with the thistle. Just looking for a pretty picture for this posting put me off! They're thorny, unfriendly looking things! The only thing I really do like about them is the rich hues of purple they bear so my next exploration is into purple, one of my favourite colours. Look out for it in my postings over the next few days.
