    I'd say, as a starter to fly tying you're out of your league. But, check out Davie mcphail on YouTube, he does some married wings in his videos

    i would need four, and the wedding colors are periwinkle blue and a blush pink. and i appreciate the offer very much! but i'm kinda wanting to tie them myself.

    I think for those colors you're gonna have to dye materials yourself to get exact matches.
