{Simplicity + Sweetness}: Chartreuse, Plum & Slate Gray

{Chartreuse, Plum & Slate Gray}

If there were a perfect palette of the week I'd chose this one! Wow! Look at this combination! So so classy! When Shesh shared with me that the idea for her color palette came from green cymbidium orchids, and the eggplant calla lillies- I thought 'wow this is going to be really pretty' and i have to admit that i really reconsidered my color scheme after this one :) Bridesmaids were dressed in beautiful slate gray dresses and held bouquets that included the brides signature florals. These blooms popped against the color of the dress!

A beautiful & unique design was used for the wedding cake & invitations included floral motifs in chartreuse and plum. Centerpieces consisted of different sized glass containers which held both orchids and eggplant colored calla lilies. These centerpieces stood out against rich, floral pattern table cloths. An old gray mailbox was used to hold cards that the couple received as gifts and made for an instant conversation piece.

Love this color scheme. I plan to use plum,wine,white, and green in my wedding with black forest and piccaso calle lillies. Wasn't planning on using chartreuse but I love the way it looks! Thank you so much for the ideas and inspiration!
