Today I am answering an e-mail from one of my readers….
“I am in the beginning stages of planning my wedding and desperately need some help! I am a southern belle and want to have an outdoor wedding in my home state of Georgia. I’m looking for a color palette that incorporates the color peach – but I don’t want anything too traditional. I want it to look fun and special! Can you help me?“
An outdoor wedding for a Georgia Peach….here you go!
Start with your color palette – peach, with accents of lime green, yellow and white. It’s fresh and will look fun and modern in your outdoor setting.
Since your wedding will be outside – provide your guests with a colorful fan that doubles as your ceremony program.
In order to keep your space light and airy, keep everything white – the tent (which would be stunning draped with white lanterns!), white chairs, and white pillows on the lounging furniture. Use your pop colors – peach, lime green, and yellow – in your accents. A green and white stripe table cloth gives a garden feel, and orange cocktails passed by waiters, and a cake adorned with colorful sweet pea flowers complete the vision.
Since your wedding is outdoors, make sure to keep the attire in line with the dressiness of the event. Instead of having your groom wear a tuxedo, try a tan suit with a tie that incorporates all of your pop colors. Have the bridesmaids wear your signature color of peach – tea-length or short would be most appropriate (and the girls will be so thankful they don’t have to wear a long dress on a hot, summer day!). Have the bridesmaids carry bouquets of crisp, white flowers – but for – you should stand out with a bouquet of peach roses!
