I’m on a bit of a baking-hiatus right now, we’ll see how long that lasts, so I’m delving into wedding coordination stuff. But, like I said in my previous post, the wedding colors and all of that other fun stuff will be determined after Ben and I finish picking a wedding venue. The colors will have to match the tone of the venue, the theme, and the season after all.
A couple of weeks ago I got an automated e-mail from the Knot, and although they have a lot of good basic advice, and handy tools – it will only get you so far in your wedding planning. Sometimes, it just seems more fun to do your own foot work on wedding details, as opposed to one stop wedding planning. But when I got this e-mail about “20 wedding color combos that actually do work“, I had to check it out.
And I must say, I was pleasantly surprised at some of the colors I saw! Some of them were really wonderful, eclectic, fun, non-traditional, modern, and just made you smile. One of the biggest color combinations Michelle, Ben’s sister, has been promoting to us is a red, green and honey color combo. At first I’ll admit I was vehemently against it. Green and Red? We aren’t getting married at Christmas, but after seeing it here, it put my crazy mind to rest.
One of the best ideas about picking wedding colors came from Beka a while ago, where she suggested going to your local hardware store to the paint section and picking up several paint chips. Then at home you can mix and match them to your hearts content until you find the combo that’s just right for you. I took this advice to heart and ran over there to pick and choose a rainbow of colors. And was this a great idea or what?!
Oh, pretty colours! I love Orange and blue together, but I don't think that it is what I would go for for my wedding. lol. I like your purple, green and cream idea, that is really nice. Yellow, sage and white are another three I really like.
i love green and purple together. what a great idea of using paint samples.
Never thought to use paint color samples! How clever you are Megan! Can't wait to see what you and Ben come up with. 🙂
Paint chips are a genius idea – I never thought about that one until way after the fact. I love all of the combos you put together!
