My Coco Myles bridesmaids' dresses are fun, girly and flirty. Just like my pink Summer fantasy wedding! The tone-on-tone pink wedding features bridesmaids in two shades of pink carrying fabulous bouquets packed with roses and peonies in hues from blush to fuchsia. The bride's dress is even a pale pink!

This wedding is a little bit retro, a little bit vintage and very fun! I envision the June ceremony taking place in late afternoon in a rose garden with rows of fragrant blossoms followed by a reception in a white tent strung with pink paper lanterns. High and low cocktail tables are draped with white hemstiched linens and topped with a vintage pink glass bowl filled with white and pink blooms.

Since my favorite parts of any meal are the hors d'oeuvres and dessert, the reception will be cocktail-style. Guests will sip Sophia pink champagne and strawberry lemonade as they sample amazing hors doeuvres and small plates (all locally-sourced) then enjoy the elaborate dessert buffet (complete with pink cotton candy on sticks) and stunning pink fondant wedding cake. The 80s cover band The Breakfast Club will keep guests dancing late until the evening when a retro pink convertible whisks the bride and groom away! Ah--if only I could get married all over again!
