  • Wedding: August 2011

I started with the feel I wanted for the wedding. We are having an evening wedding with the reception at a five-star hotel and we wanted to do black tie, so I wanted to do something really elegant. To me that means white, cream, and maybe a touch of pale pink flowers; while colorful flowers are often beautiful, I just don’t think they read as elegant and timeless. Basically I think that to make a wedding elegant, you need to have a very neutral palette with an accent color or two (maybe a metallic and an accent color). I ended up playing around with inspiration boards and picked a dusty aqua color as the accent, and we are using warm, shimmery metallics throughout. My goal was to have the look be cohesive, but not do the usual two color combo.

I would recommend picking a vibe you want to convey before trying to pick a color. You can say “blue” but until you know the feel of the wedding, it’s hard to know what blue to pick. Having an elegant, vintage wedding? Maybe a french blue. Having a modern, evening wedding? Maybe a royal blue. Having a preppy, nautical theme wedding? Maybe a navy blue. The time of year, location, and feel you want to go for should be figured out first, and then you can pick colors that work accordingly.

Well it started with having an outdoor wedding at my parent’s acerage  so I wanted an earthy colour which was brown and would go with the rustic-ness of everything. Then we incorperated Blue, since it’s a favourite colour between Fiance and myself. There will also be touches of pink since that’s my other favourite colour 🙂

i close orange because i love orange, and it’s a fall wedding. I picked gray because it goes REALLY well with orange, and it gives a lovely sophistication to any colour it’s paired with. I then relaxed the exact shade of gray and am allowing anything from silver to gray to pewter to a deep characol to be included. Half inspiration/half real life board:
