I decided to wait till almost the last possible second to do my taxes this year – go me! I have been buried in receipts and paperwork for most of last week and this week trying to get everything organized.
I do have the queen Latifah show on right now playing in the background – I have caught clips of the show, but never really had it on the whole time. It is only 4 minutes in and she is showing some funny clips from the internet on her QL’s spin around the world… I have seen 2 of the 3 videos that they showed… I don’t know if that is a good thing or a bad thing. One I even posted on Scott’s page because it was hilarious. It was a guy dancing in his swimsuit to what looks like a zumba/cardio fitness class that was by a pool.. who exercises by a pool?
Anyway – back to wedding stuff
Picking out colors – how hard is that? Ridiculous. I have done what every bride does and got on pinterest to create a wedding board. I really feel like I need a whole board just for centerpieces, wedding dresses, save the date ideas and everything else instead of 1 giant board.. but we will get to that at a later date.
Having one giant board right now has actually helped in figuring out the wedding colors. I have pinned centerpieces that like, colors I like, bouquets, some dresses, and save the dates – all things that I love and love the colors. When I put a lot of the pictures together a couple colors really stand out as being ones that are my favorite. One isn’t to big of a surprise – Turquoise. I figure some shade of turquoise or aqua would be one of the wedding colors. I figure there will be a brown somewhere mixed in or a neutral shade and then I want a nice accent color. These are a couple of the boards that I came up with :
You can probably get an idea of the theme we are going with… I haven’t given away any information about where or when the wedding is – we will get to that :)
From all of those pictures and many more I pretty much came up with the colors below – Yes there are two turquoise colors that are crazy similar.. one is a bit brighter then the other. I probably could have eliminated one of them… but for now thy are staying. Does this color selection hold our wedding colors? I have no idea, but I think it is a great place to start!
So, if you are working on your wedding colors and really do not know where to start – one giant pinterst board is a great start to pull colors from. If you are’t into that sort of thing and just want someone to have already pulled some swatches for you then I highly suggest this website:
She has done a ton of work at making great color palettes from images of almost every color. You can search by specific colors or themes like Spring, Global, The Sea, etc. Just searching up The Sea has brought gorgeous ones that I am already in love with – Take a look:
I hope this has helped you pick out your wedding colors or at least got your mind rolling for some ideas!! Once we figure out our colors I will let you guys know!
