{Just Peachy}: A Palette of Peach and Shades of Green

May 5, 2010

{Orange, Peach, Shades of Green & Ivory}

There is no better time to use the color peach than the season of Spring! It's just one of those colors that was made for the season! Sweet, soft and romantic peach looks really great with shades of green! For this palette I wanted to keep things pretty light and airy while not forgetting to add a few subtle pops of color throughout. When I got Christina's email to me explaining that she was to marry in a garden in her hometown I started dreaming of all the fun little details! So here are my ideas for her upcoming wedding! First of all bridal party attire is a must when it comes to figuring out the look for your wedding! {continued...}

I decided to have bridesmaids wear flowing chiffon dresses in both peach and green while groomsmen were dressed to coordinate with striped neck ties. Invitations and accessories were all chosen to coordinate while vibrant bouquets stood out against the subtle colors of the overall palette. As a special treat guests enjoyed a buffet of sweets in lieu of the traditional wedding cake!So how are feeling about this peachy palette? I happen to L-O-V-E it! There is just something so special about this color! I think I might even go as far to say that I love peach a touch more than I love pink! I just think it's so vibrant yet so soft!

Deb Wilkie said...

Loving this, because it's as close to what I want as I'm seeing....but I want peach, sage and lavender...and of course, cream to break the colors up....I have so many thoughts packed into my head I can't figure them all out, and I'm so so glad you're here for me to steal ideas from! Any help you're providing is taking some of the pressure off of MY brain! LOL!

My wedding colors are light peach and light green, and I've been desperately searching for a tie like this one! Where did you find that picture/where is the tie from?

Thanks!
