My favorite color is Turquoise….sometimes purple…but mostly turquoise.
My fiance’s favorite color is Red. All the time, all day and all night.
I FINALLY picked a theme that makes sense to the both of us….Apples. Every year, at the end of Sepetember, we go apple picking. I go home and I bake him apple filled pastries. This year, at the end of Septmeber, we’re getting married. So why not still have apples?
The issue…..does tuquoise clash with the apple theme? I plan on having red AND green apples for decor and all that jazz. How would I incorporate my color?
And, if you are so compelled, post some pictures or links that pertain to my theme….I’m having google issues… :,(

You could do apples in baskets lined with blue gingham 🙂

I think red and torqouise are pretty together! Just google it and you will find TONS of inspiration. I do think however maybe you should only do red apples because green will kind of clash. I think yellow might look better? You can also google red, yellow and torqouise and see some other weddings that used this color (and apples come in yellow as well).

I’m envisioning a Country Fair sort of theme… something vintage in feel that incorporates Apples and the colours you have in mind.
GOOGLE – Vintage Country Fair – and you’ll see some ideas… and even hits of Turquoise.
Also, remember that Turquoise was a BIG Colour in the 1950s & 60s … so there are still household items around in those colours that could work perfectly for your decor
Example… you could have a dessert table. Apple Pie, Apple Crisp, Apple Cake, etc… Candied Apples even. And the table could have dishes etc in turquoise if you like.
GOOGLE – Turquoise Dishes – and you’ll see lots of household items (not just dishes) in this amazing colour
I’d also incorporate hits of yellow… to offset the Turquoise nicely.
GOOGLE – Turqouise & Yellow Wedding – for inspiration.
Hope this helps,

I love yellow! I didnt think about that! Thank you!
@This Time Round:
I plan on having a pastry table, because I am a baker. I make cakes for a living. 🙂 I really like your ideas. Thank you very much!

@Miss Moxy: Red and turqouise go great together! Behold!
As long as you find some nice red juicy apples, you are good to go 🙂 Crafting stores usually have fake ones for reasonable prices around that time of year.

I love red and turquoise together! The key with multiple strong colors is to have one dominant color and the other one as an accent, and also to have a third functionally neutral color to offset. So with those two, you’ll see white used as a base, and pops of red and turquoise. That way it’s not OMGINYOURFACE color.
We’re doing coral and deep green for our colors, with silver/light gray being the base. The trick that I’ve found is to make a mockup of what I’m envisioning, setting it on the table, walking away and turning to look at it. I’ve had to punch up color on certain things, and tone others WAY back. Getting an unbiased third party to look at it helps too!

I would go with red and Turquoise as your main decorating theme with pops of green apple like greenery in centerpieces.

I realise you posted this a month or so ago so you may well be sorted for colours.
Just in case, here is a website that I really love http://colorschemedesigner.com/ It’s an excellent resource for artist or people trying to decorate.
If you click on “triad” you can slide the black circle on the colour wheel to red, then click and drag one of the white circles to another colour you like – the one you aren’t sliding will move accordingly.
I’m not sure I’m making much sense and if that’s the case this won’t be massively helpful lol. This is just a good way of choosing two or more shades (in your case three) that compliment each other without clashing.
Best of luck!

I like This Time Round’s ideas of yellow or maybe brown, here’s a pic without the red, but I love the apple theme and think it would go in here well!
