I looked for DAYS online at all kinds of different colors. I knew I didn’t want black and white or ANY sort of pink/peach color scheme at all. I narrowed it down to two different sets of colors that I liked, and then showed them to SO and he helped me choose from there. We decided on a candy apple and aqua color scheme. I’ve seen it with Tiffany Blue, but I don’t like that, so we’re going with a darker version.

I’m not a fan of pink or gold, I’m much more a blue and silver gal. I wanted a peacock theme that incorporated a lot of hues of blues and purples. Mr.ND agreed as he likes blue as well, so I got 6 color swatches, and had him pick 3. Done and done.

When we first started talking about colors, we kept going back and forth about various color combos and just couldn’t come to an agreement.  Finally we had a photographer (who we did not end up choosing) asked us what our favorite colors were and I said yellow and Fiance said blue and that is how we chose our colors.

I basically decided on orange, brown, yellow and red, you know, typical fall colours.

I told my Bridesman, who crinkled up his nose and said …. what about silver instead of brown? BRILLIANT. I just ran with it.

So now I have orange, silver and pewter – my updated inspiration board with stuff we’re actually using so far in the wedding:

My Fiance and I are big UNC fans, so it was pretty much required that we use NC blue, and chocolate brown happens to be a common complimentary color. We using the blue in small ways since our wedding is in October. These are our invites.

I struggled forever until I sat down and really thought about it.   I am very earthy, love greens and find it to be such an easy colour to work with.   Everyone was going with super bright colours, and I knew that wasn’t me at all.

I love my sorority colors sapphire blue and gold, it ended up being an easy choice to make.

Hubby picked red, I added cream and tan for the vintage feel of our venue.

I’m just going with our favorite colours. Black, red (but a super DEEP dark rich blood ruby), and silver instead of white to make things pop and sparkle. And then my man wanted to add purple. But once again a very dark rich elegant purple just a touch here and there, (hopefully I can find both the red and purple with a little shimmer). Everything is going to be very dark and luxurious. Very decadent, and kind of sinfull feeling actually, hahaha. So lots of satin! We both really love fantasy novels and I love glamour and decadence so i think these colours will work well for that. 😀 And it will be a formal even to everything and everyone should look maaaaahvalous!
