{Nautical Preppy}: Blue, Chartreuse, Chocolate Brown & Ivory

February 18, 2009

{Blue, Chartreuse & Chocolate Brown}

Ali, a soon to be bride, wrote to me about all of the exciting plans for her wedding day... And although she admitted that she is only in the early stages, she said she had a good idea of what mood she was going for. Ali said she was going for 'coastal' but not 'beachy' which proved to be a fun challenge. Her palette, she told me, was bright blue, lime green, touches of brown & ivory. To give her that coastal feel she was going for, I dressed bridesmaid in a beautiful blue shade which aluded to water. {continued...}

Favorite Details: Blue Checkered Napkins, Seafood Feast, Lanterns.

Groomsmen wore blue neck ties that incorporated a graphic pattern with touches of brown. Tables were dressed in blue and white checked cloths which added both personality and that coastal vibe. Centerpieces consisted of lilies, while bouquets were arranged with lime green orchids that truly stood out. As night fell, little laterns could be seen twinkling as they dangled from shepards hooks. Guests feasted on crab legs, shrimp of all sorts and other seafood yumminess. Guests went home with lime green bottles that had messages in them from the bride & groom-thanking them for being their guests.
