Choosing a Colour Theme
I have found choosing a theme for our wedding the most difficult decision so far. We don’t really have any interests that could be turned into themes without making the wedding really tacky. Have you thought about your wedding theme?
When I started to look at wedding ideas I came across all sorts. The beach theme is very popular with starfish napkin holders and bali flags, but we’re not getting married on a beach and it seemed too casual for what we wanted.

A romantic theme is another one that I came across a lot, but what does this mean? Love hearts, red flowers, candles?

It’s not really my style either. Vintage themes are very popular at the moment and they do look amazing. It’s a good theme because there are so many interpretations of vintage and it means you can collect eclectic pieces to put together. However, the same thing came across my mind – it is not particularly ‘us’! Argh this is so hard.
In the end I discovered the easiest thing for me was to pick a colour theme. So I asked my fiancé what his favourite colour was and he said blue, great because that’s mine too! Now, what kind of blue? As we learnt, there are many different types of blue. And what other colour can you put with blue to bring it all together? I was thinking of a cobalt blue with apple green and white or maybe cobalt blue with a lighter robin’s egg blue, any thoughts?

Once you have chosen your colours you then have to decide where to implement each colour. What colour will the bridesmaids dresses be and the groomsmen’s ties? Will you have colour chair covers or colour sashes or both? The blue we chose is quite bright so I don’t want it to be too overpowering, especially in the reception room.
Can anyone tell me how to implement a wedding colour theme?
