41. Fun stuff - colors!

I think one of the most fun (and at the same time, difficult!) things to do for the wedding was to pick the color scheme. We didn't really have a "theme" we wanted per se, so we tried to just narrow it down to a couple of colors that could tie everything together.

We went to Home Depot and picked a bunch of different paint samples, and mixed and matched until we came up with a combination of lime green and turquoise. The turquoise was a little dark, so we lightened it up to an aqua, and it ended up looking a lot like the color scheme of this wedding.

Style Me Pretty is a great site with lots of beautiful weddings, and I'd recommend it to anyone trying to figure out what they want their wedding to look like! Snippet & Ink is another site that has tons of different color schemes. You can even select one color you like and look at all the others they have paired with it.

I love our color scheme because it's fun and lively, and really matches the tone of our spring wedding without being too feminine. I can't wait to see it all come together!
