If the last time you went shopping with your mom was back in high school for a prom dress, it’s time to renegotiate fashion terms! Your wedding is your time to shine, but remember that it’s also a special moment for your mother.
When it comes to wedding, bat mitzvah & event color themes, there are always the usual suspects. The dresses, the flowers, the programs. You may be tempted to play it safe and stick to those white table linens. The truth is, splashes of color used in a bold way can have a stunning effect on your décor!
