My Wedding! (Coral, Raspberry, Lime & Plum)

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately for my own wedding colors. It has been such a difficult task for me! It's so easy for me to come up with beautiful, inspiring color schemes on a daily basis...but picking one for your own wedding is damn near impossible. I want a color scheme that gives me just the right feeling. Up until recently, I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted that feeling to be, which made picking the exact right color scheme a daunting task. I've even come up with other schemes that I thought were what I wanted...and then ended up feeling like something was missing.

Here's the criteria I finally realized I wanted to fulfill:

1. It had to feel like FALL. My fiance and I picked September 29 as our wedding date for a reason–we love the fall. Up until now I'd forgotten about that.

2. I needed color. My other inspiration boards I was coming up with for my own wedding were too drab. I needed a nice pop of color (or colors) so the wedding would feel cheery.

3. I still wanted to incorporate my finace and I's favorite colors (green & purple).

4. I wanted the wedding to be a reflection of us as a couple. We are very earthy, rustic people. I needed a scheme that embodied that, but still had an elegant flair.

And, now, I am happy to say that I came up with a scheme that embodies all of these things! I FINALLY have a color scheme that makes me happy. That makes me feel excited about pulling it all together to make one hell of an awesome day. So here it is!

Coral, Raspberry, Lime & Plum

Gorgeous, huh? I sure think so. I love how perfectly that bouquet represents everything I want. Earthy, fall-ish, and elegant all at the same time. So, what do you think? Can't you just picture it being so warm and friendly? I'm so very excited. And I hope you all love it as much as I do!

Picking the colour scheme has definitely been a difficult task for our wedding as well! Finally I am just letting go and going with my gut when I need to make desicions. It'll all come together in the end (hopefully).
