Hello there… I’m a newbie. 🙂
I need some help deciding on a color palette for my wedding next September… hoping some bees have some good ideas and/or have used similar colors for their weddings that they can show me.
My favorite flowers are hydrangeas (the purple/bluish kind), and I would love to incorporate these into my color palette. However, I’ve always wanted to do a purple (more like lavendar) color scheme, but I’m having trouble putting colors together with the flowers… Does anyone have any ideas to help me?
Also, my wedding will be in September, so do you think these lighter colors are still appropriate??
