Hi ladies! I don’t know about you, but picking my wedding colors has been an absolute nightmare. I started with dusty ocean, lavender, and sea green… only to find that finding the stuff that I need in these shades were pretty impossible and it would not look good with the venue. I moved on to champagne and blush, neutral and romantic… but my bridesmaids would not look good in either of these colors and it wasn’t coming together as I originally imagined.
Now I’m thinking dusty blue, peach, and grey. I really love muted, soft colors. What do you think? Do these sound cute together? Or can you guys suggest another color to compliment dusty blue and peach?
I hope I can finally get this down! LOL. I know I’m driving my mom, his mom, and his bridal party CRAZY with my indecisiveness.

I think dusty blue, peach, and gray will be really pretty together. Good luck!

Peach and dusty blue are shades of orange and blue. These are directly acrosss from one another on the color wheel and thus are complimentary colors.
I might choose a darker shade of grey, charcoal perhaps?

Lol, I like all your colours, because a great many of them are in my Wedding Theme (Surf & Shore) and Colour Palette (Sea & Sand) as well.
INSPIRATION BOARD (Left to Right, Top to Bottom) = Sea Glass – Sea Blue – Ocean – Wave – Sand – Golden Champagne – Creamy Candlelight
And in the bottom corner, the orignal inspiration for Colour & Theme = Surf & Shore

Honestly I found having an Inspiration Board very helpful in visualizing things / nailing things down / sticking with a plan etc … you might want to make one for yourself.

Have you seen this page? It’s super helpful. Then I created my own. I think picking colors that fit your location is super important so that you’re working with it rather than against it.
heres the site to get started:

I think that sounds beautiful!!!
It might help to spend some time on The Perfect Palette – that helped Mr. Wallaby and I pick a general color palette for our wedding. Here’s a palette on that website that sounds kind of like what you’re looking for:

I love the idea of gray – you could even add in gray to a champagne and blush color palette – because I think it looks good on most people, so even if your bridesmaids are picky and don’t want to wear dusty blue, blush, or peach, you shouldn’t have a hard time finding gray dresses!
