Today I thought we would chat about color schemes. The color scheme for my wedding was pink and turquoise/blue. This picture of my flowers represents my color scheme perfectly. Now it's interesting how I ended up with this color scheme. You see I originally was going to go with purple and sage green, but my niece informed me she wanted to wear a pink twirly dress in my wedding. She even showed me a picture of a dress she loved in one of her books she got from the library. I mean how do you tell a 4 year old she can't wear a pink twirly dress? You can't, so you just go with it. I was also falling in love with blue mason jars at the time, and thought they would be perfect vases for my floral arrangements.
Around the same time I had a meeting for my bouquet, and found the most perfect broaches in pinks and blues and I was sold that this would be my color scheme.
Now many of you may not have a bossy 4 year old to help you determine your color scheme. There are so many options and the colors you choose can be inspired from anywhere -- your venue, the season or even your favorite colors. With so much inspiration thanks to Pinterest, it's sometimes hard getting lost in the rainbow of colors to narrow you colors down while still trying to figure out how everything is going to come together.
Recently I came across a great resource from the Wedding Paper Divas. They have created more than 190 wedding color schemes, and have paired them with some great Pinterest inspiration. You can sort by color, or by season. Today I wanted to share some of my favorite color schemes for Summer brides. Click on the link below each picture to go to the corresponding Pinterest board for more inspiration.
I'm not going to lie, there are a ton of other cute color schemes, and I'm sure glad that I don't have to make the big decision to pick just one. But I do think this is a very valuable resource. I love that it shows the main color at the top, and then provides a couple of accent colors. I also love that each color scheme links to Pinterest to show wedding invites, cakes, dresses, accessories, flowers, etc that goes with that particular color scheme. I'm not going to lie, I might use this tool to help figure out some home decor color schemes as well. It's a great resource for everyone.
Ok brides, what's your favorite color scheme? If you are already married, what did you choose and what was your inspiration?
