- Wedding: July 2010
I have been through about a million and one ideas already when it comes to color choices and decor.
I went from white and green, to hot pink, cobalt and turquoise, back to white, turquoise, green, and kraft, and now I’m having second thoughts.
Our wedding is at my parent’s house in upstate New York, and as much as I really like the idea of a spa themed wedding, complete with lounge areas, orchids, and lots of turquoise, sort of like a tropical destination wedding brought to our hometown…
BUT… it really doesn’t fit the location, and isn’t that a big part of it all?? We chose the location not only for its sentimental value, but also for its beauty.
I do like the romantic, vintage inspired weddings, but it doesn’t really go with my dress! I bought the J. Crew Celeste Pique Dot Dress quite some time ago, and I’m not willing to give it up! (See it below!)
Im having a hard time balancing color schemes, location, the feel of the whole wedding.
I know that I would like the bridesmaids to be in shades of neutral browns (As seen in the picture below)
I also know that I would LOVE to use kraft paper for my invitations. I love the color Kraft!!
Some more info. We are definitely DIYing the flowers, so the arrangement needs to be simple enough. We are getting married in July (2010) so flowers in season in the summer would be preferable.
We are doing Martha Stewart Poms to hang from the ceiling, (which will reflect the orbs in my dress), our wedding will be tented, and there will be a strong presence of sheer fabric on the outskirts of the tent (see picture below). It will be a very soft feel, and of course, everything is outside.
So… Kraft and white it is. And what else? I feel like a natural choice is light pink, but I’m just not sure.
I’m open to any and all suggestions!
