wedding post #2: colours!

From my last wedding post, I asked you all to guess what my wedding colours were going to be... (the hint was 2 "warm" shades, and one "cool" shade). The answer is: coral, peach, and mint green! Here are some random items from around my room that inspired me to create this colour palette.


And... here are some more inspiration pictures that I collaged together. All of these pictures below were found online. The whole look is so soft, romantic, and rustic. I especially love all the gorgeous peony bouquets, flowy chiffon dresses, and delicate lacy details. 



However... I'm not totally sold on this colour combination just yet... for some reason, I feel like something is missing (oh how indecisive I am). Don't get me wrong - I think these colours are beautiful together - but for me, it seems a little too "typical". I do like shabby chic elements to some extent, but when it's too much I feel like I'll drown in the girliness and end up fainting, teacup in hand, with my pinky in the air. 

So I suppose the quest for wedding colours continues. haha. In my mind, I'm envisioning a wedding that's still got that rustic, vintage feel but I also want to choose colours that are more bright, vivid, and "fun". I've always loved bold colours and maybe that's why I'm so indecisive! I should just have a RAINBOW wedding... (or not).

So, what do you think? Do you like this colour combination, or do you agree with me that it's too girly?! If you are already married, what were YOUR wedding colours? And even if you're not married, do you have any colour suggestions? Let me know!! =)

  1. The color combination is brilliant. However, i suggest you "reduce" coral and pink, especially pink, in order to let the mint green "cover" the girly part for which you have doubts!
    In any case, you should go for what represents you best! I am sure no matter the choice, the result will be excellent if it comes from..inside!
