I have been back and forth and back and forth for MONTHS trying to figure out my wedding colors/theme! I’m stuck between an Ivory, light pink, and Champagne very classic style wedding, and going with an “Enchanted Forest” theme, which the colors would be dark purple with accents of light pink and ivory.
I guess part of the conflict is that my Fiance’ and I are getting married at an outdoor english garden venue (surrounded by evergreens), and the reception is going to be held under a white tent on a July evening. Would the Ivory/Pink wedding be too bland with the white tent? Then would the dark purple be too contrasting with the white tent? Maybe i’m being too analytical, but i’m in love with both ideas/concepts! AAAH! Help!

If you could do some uplighting I think the light pink and champagne would pop much better and you wouldn’t have as much a risk of it getting washed out. The color combo sounds really elegant and timeless, I love it.

When I first read the poll, I was leaning toward the ‘safer’ colors (ivory, pink, champagne), but reading about your venue and seeing that first picture completely changed my mind. I think that style would go well with the english garden and wouldn’t be cookie cutter.

I really love the enchanted forest idea. I think the richer colors are more unexpected and are more memorable. Go for it!

Though I think you can’t go wrong with either option, the idea of the “enchanted forest” sounds so much richer and vivid to me. I really like that idea, and when you said that and when I saw the pictures, it really came together nicely in my mind.
I do think that the classical style would look really beautiful too, but the others just take on a more mystical quality, which I guess I associate with a garden setting.
Let us know what you choose!
