{Coral, Light Yellow, Latte, Peach & Ivory}

Recently, I was contacted by a bride named Nour. In her email to me, I could sense that Nour was incredibly excited about her upcoming wedding day, but I was also got the sense that she was struggling to determine the perfect color palette for her special day. Nour told me that they would like to either use plum or coral as the primary color and that they were thinking that yellow, green or ivory would make good complimentary colors. In my design, I opted to use coral as the primary color and light yellow as a complimentary color. In addition, I decided to add the color beige just because it's a great neutral tone that I knew would look great. The bride mentioned they would love to incorporate large centerpieces since they were having their reception in a ballroom.

Because of this, I incorporatedly lovely centerpieces of coral blooms that were both grand and romantic. Bridesmaids wore coral chiffon gowns and groomsmen were coordinated in beige suits with coral ties. Ladies carried bouquets of yellow blooms which added a certain softness to the overall look. In addition, Nour mentioned that since her soon to be hubby would love to determine a way to incorporate special lighting on the tables. In my design, I incorporated fun paper lanterns with yellow damask patterns. Each lantern held a single flameless candle. These lanterns provided a great deal of ambiance & set the stage for a wedding that guests would surely remember for years to come.

I've had it save on my computer for a couple of years now. Unfortunately, I don't know where it's from. I started saving photos long before I started making inspiration boards. They are fabulous though.
