our wedding colors

{painting by cocoa and hearts}

Clearly, wedding planning is taking up a lot of my time these days, but I don't want to give too much away before the big day! I thought it would be safe enough to share our color scheme since that is the first question every one asks.

We're going with coral pink, charcoal grey and cream with little pops of turquoise and green in the decor.  And when I say we, I mean me. I picked it out and Steven said it was fine with him. I love that about him. :) But really, who's going to argue with an artist/designer about a color scheme? Steven's a smart man.

Some people think you can only use two colors. I say that's preposterous! As long as you are using color the right way, you can use a handful. Just don't go putting your bridesmaids in rainbow dresses. They may not forgive you for it.


I'm really excited about the colors and think that my vision is coming together, slowly but surely!

I never thought I would use a shade of pink because I thought everyone used pink, but I really do like the way the coral will pop off of the trees and greenery at our outdoor venue. :)

What colors did you or would you use for your wedding?

xoxo, christa

  1. Ooooh pretty, I like a lot!

    My first wedding was black and cream with accents of red. For my next one... not so sure. But yes, Iz and I are kind of discussing it =-)

  2. Oooooh that's going to be so lovely! I wish I could redo my wedding - I have such a better concept of what I like now than I did ten years ago :)

  3. Love it! The pop of turquoise is so vivid -- can't wait to see how you work all the colors into the wedding.

    My wedding had bright orange + pink with charcoal gray (bridesmaid dresses) and white.
