Inspiration Board # 94: Blue, Apple Green & Yellow

February 24, 2009

{Blue, Apple Green & Yellow}

Bride-to-be, Sarah, wrote to me recently and told me all about the wedding she was planning for this August. She said she was simply in need of some direction. Sarah went into detail about the mood she was trying to create for her special day. She said she wanted to create a wedding that was a very casual & intimate gathering. The ceremony, she told me, would be outside by the lake at her grandparent's cabin and that the reception would be held at a supper club in northern Wisconsin. The palette she was considering was bright blue & green. Sarah also said she was thinking of yellow for an accent color. To sum it up, Sarah wanted a simple, personal, nature inspired design with bright summery colors. In my design, tables were dressed in bright blue checkered table cloths that matched the exact color worn by the bridesmaids. To add a pop of fun summery color, sunflowers were used for the bouquet as well as for the centerpieces. Little flickering lanterns surrounded the ceremony which gave the space great ambiance. Guests went home with little green tins with planters seeds inside.

Currently, I am planning my wedding for next year in September. I really wanted to use the colors blue, green and still choosing between a yellor or a cream. My wedding will be in fall, but I think these colors are too summer. Any idea of changing shades to make it more fallish?

Have you considered going for a navy blue and a green? Navy blue is more fitting for the season. Or perhaps instead of yellow you could use a antique gold.
