On another note, I think I have finally settled on wedding colors and it is a completely different direction than what I was thinking. I originally wanted sea glass to be the color scheme for the wedding; all the bridesmaids would wear different shades of blues and greens while the groomsmen wore grey suits. While I am still sticking to the grey suit theme (and Kyle is happy with it too!), I am changing the other colors. My entire life my favorite color has been purple. While I do feel like purple has become more and more popular with weddings, it still makes me really happy when I see purple things! Since I have picked out and purchased my dress, I also really think purple is a much more romantic color and goes with my dress better. Some people say they get the dress and then everything falls into place, I really do feel like it is such a focal point for the wedding feel. :)
Purple will be the main color with green accents. I also think it fits very well with our vineyard wedding location too!
Now, I just have to decide on if I want shades of purple or just one color for the bridesmaid dresses. I am actually leaning more towards same color, different dress for the girls. And i think the purple shade I like the most is lilac. I like the greyish purple shade, rather than bright. Although, I still do like a darker shade as well. I think i need to see some colors/dresses in person to decide. Here are some ideas:
|Although this is darker, I really like this shade.|
|Obviously not this dress, but LOVE this color.|
|I like the mismatch/shades of purple look here.|
|Similar to the look, but no bow ties|
|Not this dress, but like this shade.|
