After booking our venue and taking a closer look at the color palette in the space, I knew I had to go in a different direction. “What are your colors?” is a pretty common question for brides-to-be, and at first I had a really hard time answering!
At first, I would say, “We don’t really have colors,” but that wasn’t really true either. I knew it wasn’t true, because as I was settling on different design elements, I could tell which things “didn’t go” with the color scheme and which things just seemed to belong. After a while, I was finally able to articulate our color scheme.
Please excuse janky homemade PowerPoint color palette.
I realize this is a bit overboard, and that ideal palettes tend to have five colors not six, but technically speaking, there are no strict rules. And I think it’s “too much” in a good way. I wanted to have the drama of the Art Deco period while still adding a bit of softness, and the metallics/glitters speak for themselves, don’t they? #teamglitter (Yes, I did just do that. #sorrynotsorry)
