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 lipstickĀ  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.

I use Etsy to sell handmade favors and wedding gifts, and I also recently designed Philadelphia themed thank you tags for a friend’s bridal shower.
