A long time ago when I talked about our colors, I shared these inspiration pictures to show that I wasn’t completely crazy for wanting to have a red and green color scheme:

You can imagine my excitement when I realized one of the wedding blogs I read/drool over featured this wedding on their main page a few weeks back. As I gleefully looked through the images of the couple’s beautiful day, I realized that while red and green was a prominent color combo in their invitations, it was not featured in their wedding.

I am not criticizing their choice because their wedding was gorgeous and I am totally jealous of how fun and awesome it looked. (They used a trebuchet for the garter toss…how awesome is that?!) I was just hoping to find some great color inspiration for our wedding.

So, I am back to looking for my kindred spirit when it comes to our wedding colors. Any takers?

    Miss Pony, my colors are black, green and red! I’m using red as more of an accent color, but without a doubt those are my three colors. I’ve definitely received a few funny looks when describing it, but I’m so excited!

    The knot has done some cute green and red color palettes, one was lime and cherry to be exact. I don’t know if that’s what your looking for. Have you tried snippet and ink?

    I’ve seen the colors done really well also, Pony. I think it’s going to be beautiful!

    Not what we’re doing (lots of green but speckeled with wildflowers – no true palette – just simplicity in the garden here) but I love your color scheme!

    @tntrav44: Thanks for the tip! I love looking at color combos!
    @Miss Seal: @Mrs. Tartlet: You girls are awesome.
    @cherrylimebride: I have seen this! It’s not quite the colors we’re going for, but I love the inspiration!
    @akcd: OOOhhh, that sounds awesome!
    @Kcoleybear: I’ve looked, but usually they are holiday themed boards. I should probably check again though.
    @tocarat: Thanks for your vote of confidence!
    @stephbonthego: Thanks, I think yours sounds great! Very garden-like and natural!

    Trebuchet for the garter toss?! Genius.

    If we would have chosen a spring/summer wedding date, I totally planned on doing the cherry/lime color scheme! I think it is so adorable! I can’t wait to see what you come up with so I can see what my “second wedding” could be like!
