Colors We Love: Teal and Apple Green

I have to say, one of my all-time favorite parts of planning a wedding is choosing the color scheme. There are so many gorgeous, unique, classy color combinations to choose from- it makes me want to get married over and over so I can use them all! Without the bills of course. :)

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to feature some of my favorite, unique color schemes for weddings here, and to find out what you like and what you don't. When I say "unique," this comes from a special soap box I have about wedding color schemes. First, I'll admit to you that I am pretty matchy-matchy in life. I like things to coordinate. Not overly-so, I mean I'm not crazy about it, but I do like things to match. And when it comes to planning a wedding, I feel that choosing a color scheme and going with it helps you tremendously in the planning process. If you have a color scheme, you can look at dauntingly huge book full of invitations and say "our colors are navy blue and yellow, so I'm only looking at invites that match that." It makes your choosing process SO much easier when you narrow down colors! Not having a color scheme is fine, but it seriously makes the decision process for everything that much harder.

On to part two of my soap box (if you're still reading, thanks for humoring me). Maybe this is just geographical in nature and no one in your area is using this color scheme... but if I see one more red, black, and white wedding I think I'll scream. And if you're reading this and your color scheme is red, black, and white, please forgive me!! It's just, I'm only 23 and I swear I've seen like 15 red, black, and white weddings in my lifetime!!! WHY!?!?! I like red and black together as much as the next girl, I wear those colors quite frequently, but honestly, there are a million colors in the rainbow. I love to see fresh, new color combos for weddings. That's all about that. :) Let's get down to business!

If I had to pick, teal and apple green would be my favoritest color scheme. That is, for right now. It's bound to change. :) But it'll definitely stay on the list of favorites. I love it because it's unexpected, but it totally works! It's elegant and fun at the same time, it's fresh for spring and summer, and pairing it with black here makes it totally classy.

I snagged this gorgeous inspiration board from The Perfect Palette- go check her out! She makes custom color inspiration boards for any requests, and she does it for free. Gotta love that. :) If you want to try your hand at making some color inspiration boards, you can use a variety of computer programs, or go to Style Me Pretty's Style Circle Inspiration Board maker- it's wonderfully easy to use and they turn out gorgeous. Tell me, what's your color scheme? Is there a color combo that makes you cringe? Are you rebel and not sticking to a color scheme? Tell me your color stories!! I promise I'm off my soap box now. ;)
