Happy New Years Ladies! 2013 is here and I will be in Maui Hawaii next year for our 15th Anni...
So, my first post on here is less of a "question," and more of a desperate plea - I need some inspiration for colors for my April wedding!
Now, I've always been a fall girl myself. I love the rich reds, browns, oranges and greens - so it obviously makes sense that I would plan the wedding for April instead of October...sigh. Anyway - I've never had a favorite color, exactly, and now I'm trying to put together this entire wedding without a clue of what I really want. When it comes to matching colors and styles, I can match a black shirt to my jeans, or a black shirt to my gray work pants. Beyond that I start to get a little iffy...
Let me start with my reception venue - it's in a hotel that is lit up by a large, circular chandelier and laid out with (brand spankin' new!) maroon and gold carpet. There are mirrors on part of the room (bear with me - it's a pretty dated venue) and I believe the walls are a tan color.
Originally, I wanted the colors to be maroon and gold it was a coincidence with the carpeting matching perfectly), but recently I've been getting a lot of negative feedback on the combo and have been told it would look "better" with more season appropriate colors. Even my fiance who is TOTALLY supportive of whatever I choose expressed that maroon might be too dark for the wedding. Go figure - his favorite colors are all pale blue's.
On the flip side, I think the fun spring colors would look totally wrong - bright yellows, greens, purples and blues- in the reception area.
That goes for the ceremony site too. It's mostly dark blue with a huge stainless glass window composed of blues, yellows, and reds.
So now, I'm sitting here at the computer staring at a boat load of paint swatches from lowes and starting to wonder if this might look a little clearer after a few glasses of wine! I picked
Pink and brown? Pastel green and light blue? Lilac and plum? Green and brown? Yellow and teal???!!! RED AND PINK!?!?!?!? SOMEONE HELP!
Anyone have a similar problem with their spring wedding?
