Relaxed Dandelion Wedding Theme

Here's the first draft of Rachael and Ryan's stationery for their special day.  We have kept the invitations simple, and the colours will match the bridesmaid's dresses perfectly.

I love the images that come to mind when I think of the silver tufts that are blown in a gentle breeze - Dandelions.  The idea of a carefree wedding is wonderful, and this evokes a carefree spirit of fun and cheer, just what the perfect day should hold.

Taraxacum officinale, the Common Dandelion (often simply called "dandelion"), is a herbaceous perennial plant of the family Asteraceae (Compositae). It can be found growing in temperate regions of the world, in lawns, on roadsides, on disturbed banks and shores of water ways, and other areas with moist soils. T. officinale is considered a weedy species, especially in lawns and along roadsides, but it is sometimes used as a medical herb and in food preparation. As a nearly cosmopolitan weed, Dandelion is best known for its yellow flower heads that turn into round balls of silver tufted fruits that blow away on the wind.
