The second question vendors ask me after “when is your wedding?” is “what are your colors?” and then they diligently write it down in my file. Last week, I felt like I was failing at some bridal test because I couldn’t name the type of green I wanted at the wedding during a vendor meeting. I finally just said “I don’t know–any green! Maybe not olive? What do you think? Yes olive?” I watched her watching me trying to come up with a correct answer without a Pantone book, and that’s when I thought, man, I could really use a Snippet and Ink inspiration board right about now!
Introducing, in all their summer vineyard laid back whimsical glory, our colors!: poppy red, blush, green and white. The first board comes the closest to what I’m aiming for–what would I do without Snippet and Ink??
The boy chose red because it is a lucky color in Chinese culture, and I rounded out the rest of the group with green and pink, a favorite color combination of mine. I’m really happy with the poppy red and think it will make everything pop in the photos!
What are your colors? I promise I won’t make you look stupid if you can’t list an exact shade from the Crayola crayon box. :)
