Planning the Big Day: Wedding Colors

Planning the Big Day: Wedding Colors

So our planning train is chugging along and now it’s time to definitively decide on a color scheme…which is not easy for me, as I tend to love a new color each day depending on my mood. Green however, is a constant fave and I always thought I’d have a spring wedding, envisioning celery colored hydrangea, light lime gowns and everything accented with perfect touches of sunny yellow.

There would be water, a warm breeze, ducks (yeah, I don’t know, I have a weird thing about ducks)….etc. BUT enter reality….when your perfect venue only has November 5th open…your Spring Spell becomes Fall Fabulousness : ) So what do I do? I have decided that I am not giving up on my Green Inspiration but the yellow will have to go…so instead I’m reverting to my childhood preference for Purple (which I do still love and is the core color for Creations by Crista Marie ; )  )

I think it will be just lovely…tweaking the shade to a rich emerald and pairing it with a lush dark lavender! My gals can wear jade dresses, with purple shoes of course; I want plum accents in all of the flowers and…the unique touch…throwin’ in some peacock feathers for a little extra pizzazz…do you love it? I do! And if you don’t, well, don’t tell me because I’m very excited about this and you should really be nice to the bride because it’s her special day you know… ; )
