Tis the season for wedding planning! While lots of couples get engaged over the holidays, the springtime is a popular time to plan a wedding. I know because it seems like SO many of my clients at Air-Tan are preparing for their wedding. Now that I am one month from my own wedding, I feel like I have a much better grip on my likes and dislikes, but at first I was simply overwhelmed. I couldn’t pick a color scheme, location, dress – anything – for months. I am indecisive anyway. Combine that with perfectionist tendencies, and that is a recipe for STRESS!
I just kept pinning and pinning on to my Pinterest board. I did this for weeks before actually ever making any decisions. Soon, I saw most of my pins had a common theme. That was the theme I chose for my wedding. As you’ll see when I share my own wedding photos in a few months and from this blog post – I am not afraid of color. As a couple, we love splashes of vibrant color, so of course colorful themes are my absolute favorites.
My first color scheme is this one found on Pinterest. I love these colors for a lake, beach, or summertime wedding with a nautical feel. Of course, 5 colors is a lot to work with. Simply, pick 2 or 3 main colors and use the other two just as accent colors for flowers or something else that could use more dimension in colors.
This one is closest to my own wedding color scheme. While most of my wedding will be shades of white and blush, I am incorporating pops of magenta, coral, and turquoise (not present in the picture) into my flowers and table runners. This Moroccan color scheme or pinks, oranges, and corals just screams fun, summer, outdoor wedding to me. It would be a wonderful way to brighten up a dark venue and would look incredible with lots of candles.
This one is my absolute favorite of all of the color schemes. It’s timeless. I absolutely adore red and turquoise together. A splash of gold shimmer is a hot trend for this spring and adds another element to an otherwise basic color scheme. I was leaning towards this one so much myself until I realized why. Our living room, dining room, and kitchen at our last home had this exact same color scheme. I figured I would branch out from our normal and go a different direction. This one would also work wonderful with other hues of these same colors – think Tiffany blue or even mint, coral, with a splash of gold shimmer.
This one screams garden party to me. It’s SO incredibly chic and girly, I just LOVE it. This would be perfect for an outdoor wedding or a wedding in a bar. You can incorporate almost all shades of green and peach and even coral into this. This is a truly elegant and classic wedding color scheme.
