more color inspiration

Now that's what I'm talking about! Loving all of these shades. Minus the big hat and short dress. Great Derby outfit, but not wedding.

Came across some photo opportunities of my reception spot. So excited.

Hope my photographer agrees! I think you should always have in mind what you want. Tell your photographer before. Then you won't miss out on any pictures. My photographer is already asking me to send him pictures I like. He is great. Check him out Bella Grace Studios

Note to self. The temperature in KY in August..... Must have cooler stocked for wedding party!!

I heart these blogs!!

Great inspirational blog. They feature real weddings, Southern wedding of the week, great photos and links. 

Fabulous ideas!

Great real weddings. LOVE the SEC school spirit weddings! Of course it would be even better if they were UK...still very cute.

for the color challenged...

If you are having trouble thinking of your color palette or don't know how to combine your favorite colors go to Colour Lovers. You can create your own color palette. You can even use an image from the internet as your inspiration. Here is one I created with my colors:
                           Kentucky Wedding

You can also use Big Huge Labs. You download a picture and it generates your colors. This is a picture behind my reception spot. You can use any photo that inspires you.

I am still tweaking the colors a bit. I am thinking of blue for the bridesmaids dresses, green for linens and brown for accents. I am wanting a little lighter green. More minty rather than olive.I recommend choosing your location and then your colors. If I were getting married in a ballroom I would have never chosen these colors. My location has views of horse farms and has a barn type atmosphere. I am going for earthy, rustic elegance.

Pick your colors wisely! It is the base of all your other decisions. Flowers, bridesmaids,cake.....
