Wedding Wednesday – Colors


Happy Wednesday everyone! I’m feeling SOOO much better in comparison to Monday! It’s like night and day! And I promise to try to take more care for myself so that I don’t get sick again for the rest of the summer!

Today is another addition of Wedding Wednesday. Last week we talked about the theme of the wedding. Wedding colors kind of goes hand in hand with the decor. It’s also a question that I get asked ALOT when talking to someone about the wedding!

To be honest, wedding colors weren’t that difficult to figure out. I’m getting married in the spring, so that left out fall/winter color schemes. I am NOT a pink fan so that was crossed off the list as well.

When I asked Ryan what colors he would like, he didn’t really seem to care as long as it wasn’t too girly! I’m honestly such a lucky bride! Ryan likes to be involved in the wedding process but gives me complete creative abilities! He doesn’t object to things that I want, he just agrees with it! It’s a relief because we never argue about wedding related things (except that he wants to wear shorts, flip flops and a vest to the wedding).

One day I was searching through the internet looking at color schemes. I kind of had it in my head that I would like some kind of blue but wasn’t sure what. I decided baby blue seemed to summery and indigo blue is hard to match with. Out of the process of elimination I decided on navy.


Next, a matching color! I was really pushing for white so that it would be the color of the Toronto Maple Leafs, woot woot! I put that thought aside and decided on a bright cheery spring yellow (and accents of white).


What I loved about this color combination is that I got a mix of dark and bright. Both colors go together but aren’t put together commonly.


And yes, I AM going to have yellow shoes! How fun are they? :-)


I have to say I am please with the color choices and it has been easy to gather ideas around this. It’s going to go well with our theme and the colors go well with us as well!

What do you think?

Happy Wednesday!



  1. does that mean I should be looking for yellow shoes for took forever to find the perfect silver shoes for her last wedding she was in....LOL

  2. ha ha No....I just know I want to wear yellow! I know the girls will be wearing navy so she can have white, silver or yellow shoes! Which ever is easiest for yous to find! Im honestly not too picky about that!

  3. I like the idea of navy! I originally going use navy in my wedding, but then we decided to do the Tiffany blue. I'm loving the yellow too!

  4. I'm a fan of navy!!! My wedding was navy and white. I think the yellow and navy is awesome and really compliments you and Ryan's personality! Bright and cheery yet grounded : )

    Oh and I saw a lovely pic on FB this morning. Can't wait to see the others.

  8. I love the color choice. i do have to tell you though that those are FFA colors... Royal Blue and Corn Gold :)

    So see, that color combination has been around since 1929 and it still holds strong and true so those are fabulous colors.
