We have found the Cheetah Wedding Color Palette! (Yes, it’s capitalized”¦the capitals make me feel like I accomplished something”¦)
If you remember, I wanted to introduce some new colors to our venue’s bold palette of black, white and yellow:
Thanks to the hive’s help, I was able to figure out what was wrong with my original palette—it was all the right colors, but the pinks were not the right tone. So after a little adjusting, I introduce you to the new and improved Cheetah color palette!*
Success! Black, white, lemon, petal, peony, and grey. (Personal Image)
I am feeling much better about this palette, and I don’t think I need to add anything else. I realized that I kept trying to put colors together that I liked but didn’t necessarily go with our venue and therefore our overall look for the wedding.
Here is a loose inspiration board I threw together to help get a better idea of how these colors work together:
So now I need to decide which of these colors I want to dress the Cheetah Girls in—keep in mind there are eight of them, so whatever color we pick will have quite an impact. Black is out because I think it’s too dark for our outdoor desert wedding. White/ivory isn’t an option (only for the bride at this wedding!). Yellow will really pop, but I don’t think it’s the right color for a lot of skin tones. And Mr. Cheetah nixed the darker pink. So we are left with petal pink or grey.
So hive, what color bridesmaids dresses should I pick?
Option A: Petal Pink—flattering and colorful without being overpowering. But is it too delicate for our overall look?
Option B: Grey—sophisticated and the bouquets will really pop, but I worry that it’s a tad boring, and I do love color”¦
*I can still change my mind up until the wedding is actually here, right?
