“Spanish Wedding”

   

Description from Cuban Queen Crazy Chick: Okay ladies! I need your help...my husband and I have been engaged for a while now and we are planning our wedding hopefully for next summer. (Yes, I said husband instead of fiance because that's what he is to me.) Anyway, I'm having a hard time deciding on a color scheme and color is very important to me, as I'm sure all you fellow beaders can relate! In this first theme the bridesmaid dresses will be a soft gold with a hint of black lace and there will be red roses, black fans, and candles everywhere. Very elegant and Spanish feeling, in honor of our Spanish ancestors. So, I would like to hear everyone's opinions and suggestions on the color choices! Which ones work best, any tweaks or color changes, etc. Thank you so much chickies!!

    They’re all beautiful, and every one would make a great wedding! (sorry it’s a little short. if I think of anything else, I’ll let you know) :D

    This would be beautiful for an evening wedding!

    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Hi Susan! Yeah this one would be an evening wedding, I think I’m leaning toward this one the most. Can I ask, what were your wedding colors (if you had one) ?

    Chicky Suz aka Susan Z says:

    I did not have your traditional wedding, we were married by a justice of the Peace in our back yard. I wore a long cream linen skirt with a semi sheer vintage blouse with lacy collar and cuffs. Flowers were white roses – now this was also back in 1990.

    Ok. I’m leaning towards the Spanish Wedding or the Havana Wedding. The Havana wedding sounds very lush with Stargazer lilies, tropical plants but also sounds light and airy. I love the ideas of the colors you chose for the bridal party (both men and women)too.
    The Spanish wedding definetly has the SPICE! Plus it reflects your heritage.
    Maybe you could mix them up a little?
    Just make sure it’s what YOU TWO want.

    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Hi Sweet Chick! Thank you for your input, my problem is that my favorite flower is the stargazer lily so I want it to be in my wedding but I want a Spanish-themed wedding like in the description. I don’t know how to mix the two. And don’t worry, my husband has lots of say in this too, I’m not gonna go Bridezilla on him! LOL

    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Susan, that sounds very sweet and romantic. Not fussy and stuffy, plus you were married outside which is very nice.

    Gosh, my brain doesn’t go back that far, LOL!
    We had a traditional church wedding.
    The bridesmaids wore dark purple and the flowers were multi-shades of purple and white wildflowers in a very loose natural style bouquet. I wore a very simple but elegant long white satin dress.
    The guys had black tuxedos.
    In our area it was traditional to drive around after the ceremony with the cans behind the car. Well, my husband was a firefighter at the time and department surprised us by arriving with one of the engines and the whole wedding party ride around town on that!! What a memory!
    Probably more than you wanted to know huh?

    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    Okay, Okay, I take that back!!! I think it should be Rugged!!!

  18. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    No, that was great!! I love hearing about people’s lives, especially wedding stories. The dark purple dresses with the white and light purple flowers sounds SO pretty. And what a cool way to make your exit, on a fire engine! SO cool!!

  24. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Yeah I can’t get past 10 so I decided that was enough since I got my free beads anyway, I’m more than happy with that! Somebody must’ve been up til 2am looking for eggs(Anita!!)! lol

    Love this one! You will make a beautiful bride no matter what you choose Ivy!

  27. Cathy H Chocolate Chick
    Cathy H Chocolate Chick says:

    Ivy, I vote for the Sexy Diva Wedding or this one. They both seem very vibrant, which is how your peronality comes across. Beautiful! I was married in the fall a long time ago (1977). I did a pick for it called My Fall Wedding. The bridesmaid dresses were a burnt orange color and the tuxes were sort of “peachey”. The flowers were orange and yellow. I’ll try to find a photo and attach later. Got to get to work now.

  28. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Hi Debbi and Cathy! Thank you so much for your comments. Cathy, those are the two that I’m leaning toward too. I can’t wait to see your wedding pics, the colors sound really beautiful!! :)

  29. Valentine Chick
    Valentine Chick says:

    Sorry I missed this one IVY! I’m sure I was looking for those darn eggs! I love this pick and I think it would make great wedding colors with a Spanish theme. Will you also have a bull? Just kidding! It will be a memorable day for sure!

  30. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Thank you, Jen! I’m sure there are countless picks that I’ve missed as well. When I called to rent the bull they told me no cuz it would be a safety hazard. Just kidding! LOL

  31. Lynn Eileen Chicky LE
    Lynn Eileen Chicky LE says:

    I missed this one, too, cause of those blasted eggs, plus I was new to LB and didn’t know anyone then. Now I would just jump right in and chat!!! LOL

    This is a gorgeous color combo, Ivy!!! I was going to make a smart remark about bulls and horns and being h___y, but I decided not to since it’s still daytime and children might be awake!!!! ROTFLOL ;-) Those remarks are best saved for primetime, right?

    Classy Chick JbyJill says:

    I too feel bad I missed this pick…. I know I was looking for those eggs :P I think the colors you and your “husband” have chosen are perfect!!

    Ha Ha Ivy! You crack me up! Yes it would be risky! Then we would have to call you Crazy Risky Cuban Queen!LOL

  34. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    You guys shouldn’t feel bad about missing this pick!! There are lots that I miss all the time, although out of curiosity I try not to miss any. lol I know we were all going crazy with that torturous egg hunt! Lynn, LMAO. That’s all I’m gonna say, is LMAO! ;)

  35. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Jen, I think the CRAZY covers it all! LMAO!
