Wedding Color Survey

Happy New Year!  Here's to a year of good health and happiness.

My year is starting with the exciting and fun task of wedding planning.  Even though we are trying to keep things simple, there's so much planning involved with a wedding.  

Since I live in a colorful world, one of the first things that came to my mind was the color story for the wedding.  Now this might not be at the top of the typical wedding planning list, but the theme and colors of the party truly set the tone for the entire celebration.  In some cases, the theme or colors can influence a choice for a reception location or dress.

Right now, I've narrowed the choices down to three and would love your input to help me make the final selection.  We're looking at a June wedding so there will be so many flower choices in bloom at that time.  In every case, I'm going to incorporate some Lilly and nautical details, too.

Please take a look at the choices and leave a comment to let me know which combination is your favorite.

Navy Blue and Kelly Green


Candy Pink and Lime Green


Bright Navy Blue and Hot Pink


Which color palette do you like the most?  As I plan my summer wedding, I'd love to hear about any wedding or party resources you have.  Please share any information you have about fabulous vendors and resources, particularly if they're located in Maryland, DC, or Virginia.  The best recommendations come by word of mouth.

  9. @Kate ~ You have excellent choices! I adore Visitation; my sister and I are both graduates from the school, but I had my first wedding there, so it probably wouldn't be a good choice for my second wedding. ;)

    Canapes has always been a favorite and Volt is gorgeous.

    I'll have to take a look at the photographer and sweets table you recommend.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  11. It's in alexandria but every wedding at george washington river farm has been lovely. I do love weddings at private home gardens. Much more intimate,flexible and less expensive. We hosted 130 ppl at my grandparents and it was amazing.

    I love blue/green for summer and navy/pink is fabulous. Mygfriends wedding in sonoma was navy/pink and had great touches. Let me know if you want to see pics.

  15. Navy and kelly or Navy and pink... You can't go wrong with those. I would actually toss some white into the mix to soften it up. Pink and green is fun and youthful but it lacks a certain sophistication - So excited for you!!

  16. Congrats!!!! What a wonderful time. I got married 4 years ago and still love everything I did.

    All your color options are great. My color story was Navy, Bright Pink and Lime Green - so maybe combine them all!
