Yellow... the ways I love thee...

Good morning, how's your week going? I've been making my husband get me up at the ungodly hour he arises most days in order to get a head start on the day. And as I'm not a morning person and will complain and fight it as much as I can, I've told him to literally deposit me in my office before he leaves for work (at 5.15am!!!)... I'm only two days in to this new routine so it's anyone's guess as to how long it lasts!!
It's been a while since I've shared my colour love series with you. It started some time back with red... since it's my least favourite colour to use in weddings, showcasing the ways in which I did indeed like it. Now yellow I have no issue with... I pretty much LOVE it any which way, so this showcases just a few options, and I'll have some more for you in a couple of days. 


I definitely wouldn't love this so much if it were all pastel shades, but the pop of fuchsia really makes it for me! It's utterly feminine and elegant and simply too pretty for words don't you think? I'm in love with this soft buttery yellow. Invitation: as yet unnamed!!
So this isn't a pure yellow, it's more of a citron shade, but I'm counting it as yellow! I love it paired with all types of green and you see yellow with a kelly green a lot but not so much this gorgeous earth olive shade. Really pegs back the shape citron. Invitation: as yet unnamed!!

So what do you think? Do you sway more towards the pretty feminine yellow with shades of pink, or the more rustic earthy appeal of taupe and olive?
