Wedding Wednesday’s: Colour Palette /03

Ok so I still have no idea on possible colours for the wedding. I don’t want to be pushed into a corner of using autumn colours just because of the time of year we are hoping to get married. I love blues and greens, but I want some warmth in there too. Gah it’s so exciting and there are just too many colours to choose from.  So here is where I introduce the awesome blog that is Color Collective. Which I am going to use to help me decide. So this site is run by Lauren Wager, and what she does, which sounds simple, but so  so so genius, is she takes images she likes from around the web, and provides the colour palette for them below… It’s amazing, it’s so effective and it’s crazy helpful. So I have spent all morning going through her website, looking for possible colour combinations that may prove to be inspirational for mine and Richards wedding.

I love love love this colour combo, my only worry…is it too much?? I think I may need to experiment with looking at flowers and extra’s in these colour choices to make my final decision. Image from I-D shot by Karim Sadli.

 

I got all these images from Color-Collective. 

So I have a few ideas on colour, no idea if there is a hidden rule on how many you can have?…..hmm. let me know what your colour scheme was at your wedding, or what you are planning to have?
