(I) Do // Our Colour Scheme

Our wedding is evolving!

Yesterday was a great wedding planning day! After a day of despair on Tuesday, I awoke feeling… happy. Without sharing too much at this moment in time and jinxing it all, I’m starting to feel at peace with the whole wedding planning journey and yesterday’s progression has allowed me to “see” it all again in my head.

Our colour scheme has been a bit backwards and forwards over the past 6+ months of planning. I’ve always known that I wanted yellow featured somewhere (obviously), but was never too sure what to pair it with. Originally we had decided upon a “gold” yellow, navy, vintage red and cream scheme, but after mulling it over for a good few months I’ve decided that it will be too dark for our village hall reception, and I’d like something a bit brighter.

Cue Pinterest!

I came across a few gorgeous colour schemes featuring mint green, yellow (both mustard and a brighter “gold” yellow) and silver. I had my “eureka” moment.


I wanted to add “poppy” red in there too, but alas it doesn’t really go with my dress – although the hall does have aspects of red in it.

This beautiful colour scheme also means that I can use one of my favourite flowers, the Craspedia, in my bouquet and for button-holes!


I love Craspedia… mostly because it looks like a craft pompom!

I’m so excited about this scheme; it’s beautiful, fresh and has the hints of 1920s England and Village FΓͺte we’re looking for!

    Love those colours! The colours for my wedding were pink and lilac (it was a spring wedding and I may have gone over-girlie on it). I’ve never seen a Craspedia before but I am now in love with it!

    Our colour scheme arrived with us by accident. I went bridesmaid dress shopping with my two maids to get some ideas and both girls loved and looked stunning in a sage green. We then teamed that with pinks and creams for our summer wedding. I had a green sash on my dress as well. I had no ideas before that shopping trip on what colour scheme we would have, if any. So glad you have found something which fits for you and your wedding. Xxx

    Gorgeous! We don’t have a colour scheme but we always tend to veer towards strong jewel colours (think: Morocco, YSL) I went for a mint green dress before deciding on my current one (I say that in case I change my mind again!) It’s a gorgeous colour with those yellows and silvers in your hall! xx

    I love your colour scheme and the yellow craspedia looks really lovely – I’ve never seen anything like it before. I agree it will go well with your theme. Mine was red, white and gold but it was a Xmas wedding. The bridesmaids wore deep red velvet and had deep red flowers (gerberas and anenomes) to match. I wore all white and had white orchids. There was a lot of green foliage with red berries everywhere else – buttonholes were holly with berries. I don’t think I would perhaps be so traditional now, but I loved it then. So glad you’ve found something you’re happy with. x

    Aww it looks very pretty, such a lovely look πŸ™‚ The yellow craspedia is really cute! Aww reading about your wedding plans is making me all nostalgic about mine. We went quite untraditional with lots of things in our wedding, the main colours were purple and teal but then the flowers were bright pink, purple and orange. I love jewel colours so it was that kind of theme. Can’t remember the names of any flowers but like the more unusual textures etc. There’s a couple of pics on this post I do love the idea of the village fete look though too xx

    Hmmm… we didn’t have a colour scheme really. Bridesmaids wore navy, husbands kilt was blue and purple. We had pinecones spray painted purple and blue and silver in vases on the table…, with burgundy ribbons. I loved the mish-mash though, I wouldn’t change a thing about mu wedding! apart from remembering to actually cut the cake up and hand it out to eat after the actual cutting. doofus. πŸ™‚

    I love the images above, can’t wait to see a few more idea posts about the wedding!

    This sounds like an excellent combination. I’m going to be a bridesmaid at the end of this year, and the theme is navy, gunmetal grey, and sunshiney yellow. I think it’s going to look beautiful.
    When I get married the colour scheme will be ALL THE COLOURS. Haha xxx

    Glad you have found a colour scheme to suit what you want. We are going for a plum colour and I will be making some sort of burlap bunting with hints of plum and pink (I think) still not set in stone yet! xx
