I like board a, to me it’s more romantic than b with the green in it.  I think blue with espresso accents is very classy and the creams incorporated add romance to the feel of it all.

I love the first board!! The shades of blue are perfect, they’re not the cheesy electric blues or some of the other horrible blue shades i see. (and blue is my fave color)

I hate to say it, but when i saw the second one, my first thought was JCrew. The colors are nice, but I think the first board was my favorite!!

I think they’re both very nice, very classic and tasteful, but my personal favorite is A.  To me, A seems very chic and effortless, as well as romantic and lovely–B is very nice but just not as wedding-y.  I don’t think A is boring at all–that’s like saying that Grace Kelly was boring.  It’s all about classic, timeless elegance.

What time of year is your wedding?

I think board a) might be more limiting to spring and summer.  I was in a fall wedding (in the northeast) with light blue being the main color and I didn’t really care for it. 

I went to a wedding last summer, where the wedding was held on a lawn overlooking Lake Michigan.  The  couple used blue and green with lots of white flowers. The colors worked so well because they didn’t contrast with the beautiful surrounding. So, I vote for board B! 

Good Luck

I love both boards, but I agree, while B is more MY style, A is definately more romantic and timeless!

B is also more my style, but I think it’s a little "Nautica".  A is more timeless, but I think the cake from B is more timeless.  You could just swap it for blue hydrangeas instead and brown ribbon?  It sounds like you are set on your blue, which is gorgeous, but a tiffany blue color would also be pretty.

Hi Cyd-

 

I think board A gives off a more romantic vibe- Board B is also VERY nice for an outdoor wedding.

 

Where oh where did you find that adorable bedding in board A?!

I love board A. It does have a timeless vibe.  I am getting married on July 18th, 2009 as well! You are on to a great start with the board.  Unlike I, who can’t see to wrap her head around a color palette.

First, let me just say, both are gorgeous (wow, you put a lot of work in to these! Great job!). No matter which you’d choose, it will be beautiful. I do prefer one over the other though… my choice is (b) – the word that instant jumped into my mind when I saw it was: CLASSY. It’s really spectacularly elegant. The first one was also lovely but truth be told, blue and brown is very 2007/8. I actually went to a wedding with this theme last year and today, it’s everywhere in the home decor stores. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE it (my bedroom is blue and brown!) but I thought I’d bring it up since you specifically said you didn’t want it to look ‘overly trendy’ ten/twenty years down the road. At the end of the day, go with what feels right.. your gut is never wrong.  🙂
