2014 WEDDING COLORS: GOLD AFFAIR

TGIF everyone,

Hope you have all saved the date for the textile fair! It’s the 6th of December at Our Place, 7a Olufunmilola Okikiolu Street off Toyin Street, Ikeja, Lagos. Please come along with your friends and families, it’s going to be awesome!

Still in the preparation mode for the fair but i just want to share a color that really caught my attention for the 2014 brides.

Yes, 2014 is almost over but this color is so beautiful, elegant and alluring that I just have to share: GOLD

Before now I have written about different color combinations in the 2014 wedding colors series here,here,here and here.

For those who do not know, the 2014 wedding colors is a series that is dedicated to the 2014 brides-to be, who are still confused as to what color to wear on their traditional wedding day to help them in making a stylish decision.

So today am focusing on the ‘all gold combination’, it’s absolutely breathtaking!

Gold signifies extravagance, wealth, riches, luxury, excess, generous, compassion, love, power, justice and strength.

And this color is beautiful on all skin tones especially when it’s used in its totality without mixing it with any other colors as shown on the brides in the pictures below:

Teal is a low-saturated color, a bluish-to dark medium, similar to medium blue  and dark cyan. It can be created by mixing green with blue into a white base, or deepened as needed with a little bit of black or gray color.

Hence, teal tends towards two colors blue and green. The teal green has a medium tone of teal with more of green mix making it look like dark green while the Teal blue is a medium tone of teal with more blue.

Lots of wedding guests have used this color to sew fabulous styles and the pop of color as aso-ebi is phenomenal.

2014 WEDDING COLORS: WHITE AND GOLD

Hello my lovelies,
Happy new month and Happy Eid- Kabir in advance to my Muslim readers and happy holidays as well to everyone.
Am excited about the holidays! At least we can have a short rest before the Christmas holidays.

Okay, so today am bringing up another post under the 2014 wedding colors category, the 2014 wedding colors segment/ series is dedicated to the 2014 brides-to be, who are still confused as to what color to wear on their traditional wedding day.
I posted pictures of some color inspirations earlier here, here and here.
But today’s color suggestion/inspiration is a very unique and extremely beautiful color combination that looks good on every bride despite their skin tone.
Yes, It’s the WHITE AND GOLD color mix either you are using a complete asooke set or you are mixing lace fabric with aso-oke or gele or even if it’s a blouse and George fabric wrapper, the white and gold color mix or combination will make you stand out and give you that regal and rich look that every bride want to have on her big day.
White signifies purity, innocence, goodness, heaven, safety, brilliance, understanding, faith, spirituality, possibility, sincerity, wholeness and completeness
Gold also signifies extravagance, wealth, riches, luxury, excess, generous, compassion, love, power, justice and strength.
If these and much more are all that you wish for in life and in your marriage, then you’ve got the right colors.

Now that you know the meaning of the colors you are wearing, let me move a step further by showing you some pictures of brides that have used this combination to inspire you more:
