With our garden-themed wedding, what better way to choose a color palate than to be inspired by the garden itself? ...and that's exactly what we did. Without further ado, here is the original inspiration for our wedding color scheme:
The orange garden lily! I love these flowers. They grow in so many gardens in New England in the summer, and I think they're simply beautiful.
Going with this theme makes the main color in our color scheme orange. Yes. ORANGE. It might seem a little bright (or a little harsh) to some people, but I am really excited about having such a bright pop of color as part of our wedding. ...and no, I am not making my poor bridesmaids wear orange dresses. Originally I wanted to, but luckily my wonderful little sister (and MOH) talked me out of that one... which is a different story for a different day.
The rest of our color scheme? We're going with greens and small accents of deep purple -- also inspired by a New England garden in the summertime. When I tell people that our wedding colors are orange, green, and purple, most times they just stare back at me like I'm a crazy person. Maybe I am, but I will try to convince you otherwise with an inspiration board.
