If one would look indecisive up in the dictionary, my face would be plastered across the page. This wonderful quality of mine has taken no prisoners in the wedding planning process. Flowers? Not sure. Centerpieces? No clue, but about 1,568 ideas saved on my Pinterest board. Colors? FORGET ABOUT IT.
I have very happily thrown caution to the wind in terms of items less important to me (think cake, shoes, and…oh. That’s it). Of all things considered, choosing the colors for our wedding has proven the most daunting task. We will be married in March (on our teacher Spring Break), so my original love of deep reds and blacks flew out the window when a Winter wedding was deemed impossible. For the past few months, I have been very content on a palette of off-whites/tans/earthy colors, hints of greenery, and a mystery third accent color. While I would rather tear my own eyeballs out than willingly accept the color pink into my life, it seems as though this is where my color journey is headed. Try as I might, I cannot ignore the beautiful, aged, antique-y pink that seems to find its way into every inspiration board I peruse.
Has anyone else chosen a color they never thought they would choose? If so, how did this work out? Did you regret it or was it truly the color palette you had always dreamed of? HELP.

You don’t have to use pink! How about a light yellow or pale blue? They’re both springy and would both go with earthy tans and greens.
My colors were dark purple and burnt orange with a deep red accent. Red isn’t exactly my favorite color but it all tied in together with my autumn theme!

When one thinks of spring, you think of pastel colors. I like pink, but it’s not for everyone. Why not a mix of soft colors and you mention tan – get burlap runners and tan napkins for a rustic addition. Here’s some inspiration boards to help. If you can’t choose, ask your mom and your Maid/Matron of Honor – that’s what they are there for. You may consider hiring a planner/coordinator who could try to pry your brain and get that done for you (worth the $) and less stress!

The first idea that popped into my mind of looking beautiful (and there was lots of inspiration online!) was mint green and coral or peach. It’s not pink–more of an orangey shade I think would look awesome, and compliments it so well, and I think it’s a sunsetty tone that’s bright but would still look great with your natural tones. Here’s some inspiration:
(This is more of a bright red with a mint green but would look similar with coral)
And with more of a lighter peachy color:
Good luck! Mint Green is such a beautiful color!

Check out design-seeds.com I found them a great help. I had a basic idea of what I wanted colourwise to match my theme (Sea & Sand – Surf & Shore)… but it was very helpful to be able to visualize my colours… both thru photos and with chips, and what other alternatives might work with them.
PS… you can click on individual colours, and see even more choices.
