OK, so I FINALY decided to have somewhat of a color scheme, and decor goes like this. Im getting married utside in vermont, and he natural beauty of the place in over the top. I wnt to keep the decor simple and clean, romantic and fresh. I am planning on mostly whites, babys breath for flowers, white linens and mismatched doily runners with kraft brown paper under the doilies to allow them to pop, paper brown escort cards, and wanted to use mint for an accent color.
When I say accent color, I mean cocktail napkins, ribbons tying charms to the napkins, ribbons tying the escort cards to skeleton keys, and some DIY mint hued garland and paper poms. My problem is I CANT FIND THE RIGHT MINT ANYWHERE! ITS SO FRUSTRATING! I have combed dozens of fabric stores looking and on the rare occasion I do find it, theres only a yard left and the color is discontinued. Im super bummed, and am seriously considering changing that color to either blush hues, ( champagne, rose, and maybe a gold ) or lilacs.
I love the blush colors, but I feel that the lilacs will pop agains all fo the green n the yard and mountains and trees.
HELP! I love them all, so I think I just need a nudge. Hope this all makes sense

Bummer, hon. I had trouble finding the “right” eggplant, so I feel your pain. Eventually, my color palette evolved to “shades of purple,” so I would recommend the lilac/lavender colors. I feel like then you’ll get a romantic feel that’s not TOO hyper-femme, as blush and lace might suggest.
But really though, your details sound gorgeous! Let us know how it turns out.

@bndmusicfactory: Can you post a color swatch of the “mint” shade you like?

@bndmusicfactory: If you can’t find the right shade of mint, I’d suggest going with the lilac. Based on what you described, I think that would still give your wedding an overall natural, simple, romantic look. I think blush is gorgeous, but it sounds like you want a more “clean” look and blush tones make me think “vintage” and/or “feminine.” The lilac is better for a more outdoorsy wedding (you mentioned mountains, trees, etc.), and I could definitely see that color working well. Sorry you weren’t able to find your first choice!

@julies1949: Iys a soft mint, almost a seafoam or an aqua, like the pic posted below, but its really hard to find in ribbon! All of the colors I find are either too green or too blue.
I think Im going to go with Lilac. Its much easier, and I thik it will accent nicely. Il be sure to post any pics if I get some good ones 🙂
