I am getting married in late April and I am not a very traditional bride. I am having a hard time nailing down a color palette. I want to stay away from the traditional red & marigold combination that I have seen in so many Indian wedding pictures, and Indian movies! I want something festive and vibrant, but at the same time more modern and trendy. The only colors my maids and I have come up with is Rani and Orange or the Teal and Purple Peacock color scheme. Both are nice, but I want something different…any ideas?
Hi Sheelpa –
Color schemes are a big decisions for your wedding day. They sent the tone, the mood, and the attire. The solution to your dilemma is to take a shade of a traditional color and pair it with something modern. I put together two inspiration boards for you to see how what I am saying plays out. In this case, I took lovely shades of yellow and paired them with something unexpected and unique. Either of these color stories could play out for your late spring/early summer wedding. The first is more casual and the second is a bit more formal. Each has an individual romantic charm, it is just up to you!
Lemon and Sky Blue: Light and fresh, this color palette could be absolutely breathtaking. You could wear anything from crème to rich red, and have bridesmaids in lemon yellow saris. Heaven!
Gold and Amethyst: Strong and formal, this color palette has royalty written all over it. This could look like a movie set – picture guests dressed to the nines, elegant cocktails, and servers wearing white gloves. Magical!
Either way, you can't go wrong and you will have a glorious day! Make sure you let us know how it turns out!
Wishing you love, laughter & happily ever after,
