We’ve played around with a few color schemes. Some with pink as the fifth color, some with coral, one with green. But the blues have always been the ‘base’ of our color scheme. Blue is my absolute favorite color, and given half a chance I’d paint every wall in our apartment a different shade. Blue is Mr. Manatee’s second favorite color, first being green (check out that second color scheme!). But truth be told, the fifth color is not as important…yet. If it were up to me, we’d only be doing the blues, gray and glitter (!!!).
In a perfect world! But our slightly pushy florist insists we need CONTRAST. We’re still hammering out the details of that elusive contrast color, but what we do know for sure is the ombre/watercolor theme we have going. I was initially worried Mr. Man wouldn’t be on board with the ombre idea, but he actually really liked it once I’d shown him some pictures! His words were “as long as everything is not bright pink.” What a blessing to have such creative license ;). I posted my inspiration board that I sent to my lovely Canadian aunt (who is doing our invites) on Weddingbee a few months ago. As other bloggers, and my favorite fictional character Robin Cherbotski, have mentioned before, it seems to take a little while for wedding (or any) trends to hit Canada.

Anyway, ignore the purple in the picture, I’m mostly looking at theme. But aren’t these ombre blues to die for?
What do you think for our elusive contrast color? Pink? Green? Maybe even yellow? Who knows!
