Not a big deal. Whenever I start to worry about shades, I remind myself that you can’t pantone match flowers or your guests attire so it will never be exact. And if the bridesmaids matched the napkins or table clothes  perfectly, it might look a little silly.

definitely not a big deal… I actually changed my theme to go with the “not matching” items…

So instead of navy blue and ballet slipper pink as my colors it’s more shades of blue and shades of dusty pink… that way the blue mason jars fit in and the peachy pink and baby pink flowers flow together easily and nothing HAS to be a certain color, it would just be too much of a headache to worry otherwise.

Which led to me expanding the bridesmaid dress colors so they can choose from navy or more of a carribean blue… I think it will add a nice demension to the bridal party and add to the “shades of blue” idea. 🙂

I say no big deal. Our colors don’t match exactly, we did shades as well.

definitely not….it would be way too hard to match exactly!

 

we are doing shades…for example, my colors are navy and yellow, and i wantd to put my bridesmaids in navy dresses, but I didn’t like the look of the real dark navy with black tuxes…so I put them in “Caspian blue” from jcrew…it is just a lighter shade so it will look better!

i think this kind of ties in with my post about color families vs specific colors…the more i think about it, the more i think it’s the way to go. 🙂
