Originally, our color palette was going to be black, white, and bright green. We knew we were having a formal event, and I completely fell in love with these apple favors. What a perfect color combo! Alas, it was not meant to be, for several reasons…amongst others, I feared it would clash with our venue and I was just sort of SICK of green after awhile. As soon as we picked that color combo, I felt like everyone had picked that color combo…it was suddenly everywhere! (I imagine this is how the damask brides felt a few years ago when damask was really hot. It still is, obviously, but you get what I mean).
So, the quest for a perfect color combo ensued. Something formal, that would go with the venue, and something that felt a little more…us. Flipping through bridal magazines led me to this:

SWOON. I was instantly in love. It was so perfect, so unexpected…so US! Red is my favorite color and I KNEW Dr. Groomy would love the gold ties. I was sold. We discussed, we decided…this is it! Our colors will be black, champagne gold and a deep red. With that in mind, I created this inspiration board:
I am THRILLED that our wedding colors have gone in this direction. I feel like I can do so much more with this color palette and it is really going to look fab with our venue (And hello, those Stewart Weitzman’s in the inspiration board up there are TOTALLY on my own shopping list!)
How did you arrive at your color palette? Did you know immediately or did you change your mind like we did?
