Never in my life has color mattered to me so much than now. The closest I’ve ever come to caring about color before was when I decided to paint my bedroom purple at age 12.
Lilac Dude and I are planning a blue and green spring wedding. I’m not sure those colors can be pulled off at any other time of year. Originally, I had a beautiful black and white wedding planned with blue flowers. However elegant that would have been, I got really sentimental when my friend said, “it just doesn’t seem like you unless it’s green.”
We changed our colors in 30 seconds of conversation. I like our palette. My favorite color is green and I’m a little obsessive about it (the hangers in my closet are even green). And Lilac Dude likes blue. So we have our colors.
Like when I decided to paint my bedroom, I found myself back at the paint department gazing at the wall of swatches. I picked out my favorite green and blue swatches and armed with those, I feel prepared to look at bridesmaid dresses, flowers, ribbon and so much more to get just the right shades.
How did you choose your colors?
