Inspiration Board # 200: Peach & Slate Gray

April 7, 2009
{Peach & Slate G ray}

Anne, a daily reader, wrote to me and asked me to help figure out the perfect palette for her special day! She said that the tricky part for her was that she had fallen in love with so many color schemes that it was turning the process of determining a color palette into way bigger of an issue than it has to be! Believe me Anne, I know how you feel! Anne said she could really use my expertise. Anne told me all about the summer wedding that she was planning. Taking place in a beautiful mansion with gorgeous grand walls and detailed ceilings, Anne told me that she would love her wedding to feel very elegant & formal because she wanted the mood to match the mansion's upscale feel. In addition to feeling elegant she said she still wanted her wedding to feel fun. The bride requested that her bridesmaids wear either black or slate gray dresses because she felt that the color would be most flattering for so many different body types. In my design for Anne, I dressed her bridesmaids in slate gray dresses. Each lady held a lush bouquet of apricot blooms. Groomsmen were handsome in slate gray suits which were complimented with an apricot colored tie. Invitations were chosen in the couples color palette as were save the dates. The bride wore a vintage lace dress and carried an exquisite bouquet of gray and apricot blooms. For favors, the newlyweds sent guests home with the most amazing smelling apricot candles and a huge thank you from the bride and groom! Guests left the party with memories of a fun filled night.
