Although spring isn’t exactly right around the corner (in Calgary at least), we’ve had little hints haven’t we? The Canada geese are heading back and the trees in my front yard are forming buds. In the spirit of the upcoming season, I styled and photographed a bridal project with a handful of simple ideas for a spring wedding. I guess you could say it all started with a tulle skirt in peach tones.
Wear a tulle skirt to your wedding
My favourite clothing boutique in Inglewood, Adorn, has started carrying a full-length tulle skirt. It’s ultra feminine, whimsical and has “bride” written all over it.
Whether it’s tea length or maxi, wouldn’t your bridesmaids be dreamy in tulle?
With a bouquet from Flowers by Janie, the look became positively ethereal. Janelle used roses, white scabiosa, viburnum, double tulips, veronica and orange ornithogalum for an arrangement that’s soft, delicate and perfectly elegant.
What says spring more than a bird’s nest? I’ve always loved nests and the new beginnings that they represent.
I think a nest of macarons would make a beautifully earthy addition to a dessert buffet. I hope you’ll pop back tomorrow when I’ll be sharing step-by-step instructions on how to make your very own bird’s nest. It’s just in time for your upcoming Easter festivities.
