Red, white, and blue

In honor of 4th of July, I have decided to talk more about our wedding colors. What does this have to do with Independence Day? Well, our colors happens to be the good 'ol red, white, and blue. In our defense, I don't plan on it being "Americana" themed, but rather I'll be using cherry red, aqua blue, and white. I always knew I wanted some sort of blue in my wedding (my favorite color), but I was unsure as to what to pair it with. Yellow? Sand? Green? White? Pink? I was so indecisive that at one point I threw out blue altogether! That is, until I saw this inspiration board...

Gorgeous, no?
I never in a million years would even think about putting aqua and red together, but I absolutely adore it! The richness of the red complements the playful aqua perfectly. It's young, fun, and summery, perfect for our personalities.
And that is how our wedding colors were finalized! The red will be incorporated into the flowers, centerpeices, invitations, and napkins. The white will just be scattered throughout the entire wedding, and the aqua will be incorporated in the tablecloths, invitations, cake, and bridesmaids dresses. I must say though, finding bridesmaids dresses in the perfect shade of aqua that AREN'T $35o is quite a difficult process. More on that later :) How did you decide your wedding colors??

That inspiration board was my turning point too! I think turquoise and cherry is going to be so much fun, especially since we're getting married Memorial Day weekend. I'm glad to see someone else likes it too!
