Everything is in bloom this time of year. We are very fortunate to have such variety of plants and tree’s that can grow in our area. The city of roses offers way more than just that beautiful bloom. One of our favorite flowers is the spring and early summer Peony. This amazing flower looks good before it opens up and when it does! Of course we have local growers in our state. Why not take a road trip and head down to Adelman Gardens to see all the different colors and bloom types before deciding which you want for your wedding day.
You can also visit Brooks Gardens from now until mid June. Hurry, there isn’t much more time until this stunning flower leaves us for another year!
Blush is a popular wedding color this year, and in my opinion one of the most romantic and/or whimsical colors you can choose for your wedding. I am inundated every day with blush wedding ideas; and because even I love the color, I thought it would be fun to show a few of them off. Blush can be a part of almost any combination of wedding colors, and can add a subtle softness and romance.
The Latest Blush Wedding Ideas
My favorite is the driftwood centerpiece. I also love the pastel shades in the wedding cake. Found this little shot of inspiration on The Sweet Occasion.

This came from Ruffled. A finger corsage? This is surely something new. What do you think? I still haven’t made up my mind…seems itchy.
I had to throw in a pretty blush wedding dress. Found this on Wedding Dress Bee. It’s on sale right now, check it out!
LOVE THIS! So cute. What a great wedding idea. From A Practical Wedding. Dye flour with food coloring and make a trail to the wedding path. Flour won’t harm anything and can be any color you want!

The sun is finally shining in Portland and I have been really inspired by the new wedding color palettes for the 2013 wedding season. Everything seems fresh, new, and crisp! If you are still choosing your wedding colors, be sure to check out the Art Of Weddings Guide to Choosing Wedding Colors – Part One. Choosing the wedding colors can really be one of the hardest parts of the wedding planning process, and I always encourage brides not to rush into the decision and to really see everything that is out there. And that is where I come in…here are some of the latest color inspirations I have found…
Fresh Wedding Colors for 2013
Adding gold into a mint wedding palette makes mint seem almost royal. This is a fabulous color palette. It is cool, but with depth and vibrancy. Found this on Wedding Chicks.

Shades of yellow are really popular wedding colors this year! This is bright, fun, and sweet. The link said this was from Wedding Part Gallery, but the link did not work.
This is my favorite combination of the day! These sweet pastels are fresh, crisp, but with a true romance feeling. This offers a perfect wedding color palette to do so many fun things. Found on The Sweet Occasion. Photo credits, from top: Kellie Kano via Elizabeth Anne Designs / Jose Villa via 100 Layer Cake / Elizabeth Messina via The Bride’s Cafe.
This is somewhat like the one above, with a little more contrast and brightness to it. Adding in the lime and clementine flair offers a little more personality. This is fresh like a summer smoothie!
