Wedding Color Schemes

31 Dec

I am a color person. I like adding colorful scarves to any ensemble, I cannot like in a plain white room, and someday I will own painted yellow kitchen chairs. True story. My love of color also overflows into wedding daydreams. I think most women daydream about the perfect dress, the perfect venue, etc. I take it one step further and spend an unhealthy amount of time brainstorming fabulous color schemes. There are 2 schemes that I currently cannot get out of my head.

Here’s a little peek at my color fantasies:

I love pops of yellow in general. In small doses yellow is such a happy, cheerful color. It’s easy to add a bit of whimsy with any of the many yellow flower choices (tulips! sunflowers! daisies!) or charming details like a vase full of lemons as a centerpiece or a refreshing pitcher of lemonade. Peacock blue on the other hand adds some masculinity and romance to the mix.

Next up- turquoise and red. This combo has a bit of an early 60’s retro feel, which I LOVE. Red & Turquoise are definitely a stretch for more neutral/understated brides but for color lovers out there it’s hard to beat. I can see a very hip and nontraditional bride wearing bright red lipstick  and a birdcage veil and carrying a bouquet of poppies. Tea-light filled Ball jars littering the tables and coordinating favors (homemade strawberry jam?) add to the effect.

    So fun! Love how playful both of these schemes are… Can’t wait to see what you’ll choose when the time comes. 😉

    i see i’m not the only one who spends an unhealthy amount of time fantasizing about weddings 🙂
    i always loved the combination of turquoise and yellow and i decided that was gonna be my choice on my special day, but after seeing the turquoise and red, i’m having second thoughts now. it looks really beautiful together!
