{Spring} Color Inspiration

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

There are moments where I find myself thinking, "if i were to get married all over again, would I do anything differently?" Our wedding day was wonderful and there probably isn't much i'd change, but every now and then, I do like to entertain the thought of changing the color scheme. The palette of a wedding plays a huge role in setting the tone. Although I still dig the way grey compliments persimmon, right now the toss up for me are greens with peachy accents or neutrals such as taupes/champagne/blush paired with lavendar. I realize green and taupe are on completely different ends of the color spectrum, but what can I say? I'm a sucker for mixing up warm and cool tones! Here are a few photos to give you a visual.

A spring fresh shade of green in various dress shapes.


Golden Olive may not be a typical spring choice, but throw in a peachy-coral bouquet and it adds a lovely glow.


Green doesn't have to be plain, stripes and bow ties give the ordinary some character.


Different shades of green.. sooo fun!!


Lively lime green make the orange flowers pop!


Now this is taupe done right! Thanks Jennifer & Grant for allowing me to share your gorgeous wedding photos. I know the details are hard to see because of the lighting, but I adore the pale pink peonies and tulips!


Nothin like a crisp khaki-hued suit to set off a lilac tie :) 

A taupe sash over ivory lace pulls it all together.


LOVING this lavendar jade necklace by La Vieja Tun Tun to dress up a beige toned bridesmaid dress.


Two Birds bridesmaid dresses in "rosewater" flatter tanned skin nicely!

I've seen a few green with peach or pink weddings - and they're gorgeous. Ivy with peach and white roses is such a stunning combination.

Your idea to use champagne with lavender or rose would give a wedding a timeless / classic or antiquish look. Brilliant, as always.
