For the next few Wednesdays leading up to the big day, I’ll be sharing and revealing little wedding details. Today we’ll talk about The Colors.
Now, colors are the last thing I think of when I hear wedding, but that is not the case for the majority of Americans apparently. After the initial question, “When is the big day?” the next immediately following is,”So what are your wedding colors?!?!?” For example, we decided that our dress and suit had to match the banquet tablecloths and other decorations.
I learned quickly you had to pick a palate. I should have known, too, after years of watching Steel Magnolia and memorizing the “My colors are Blush and Bashful” speech. (Not sure what I am referring to? Go now and watch this clip. And then rent/buy/stream the whole movie and watch with a box of tissues.)
For the first few weeks I answered with “Spring!” But that answer met with confused looks, and even J was getting interrogated, so we came up with these colors: “Pink, green, a splash of yellow, and a little bit of blue. And white (for the dress, of course).” So there are my colors! Not quite the answer people were looking for, but it’s going to work. I just hope it doesn’t end up looking like a little kid’s Easter egg party. Hm.
Pink for the bridesmaids dresses:
Green for the invitations and groomsmen ties:
Yellow for the boutonnieres and flowers:
Blue for the bride’s eyes and few decoration details:
And white for the dress–not pictured to avoid giving the groom any ideas. ;) I’ll show you all in approximately eight weeks!
What do you think? What were your wedding colors? What is your favorite color combo?
