I promised myself that I would take at least a few weeks off from wedding planning to just enjoy being engaged. It's been a nice way for Rob and I to brainstorm without actually planning. So far, we're thinking the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite will be our location for the October wedding.
As for colors, I am leaning toward lots of ivory, with dark brown and dark teal as accents. I think they'll work well with the location's natural colors and the hotel's brown and teal decor. But I am very nervous about dark teal. It could go so wrong. Here are some examples of the color I'm thinking of:
Ribbon - I have a small piece of satin ribbon in this color that is my main inspiration.
Tissue Bell - Ha! Yeah right. But this is close to the color.
Sweater - The perfect blend of green and blue.
Blazer - The French really know their teal. (On sale!)
Bracelet - From Etsy.
Shoes - Ignore the orange and red stripes on these Fairly Robbin pumps.
Eyeshadow - I want this eyeliner set!
What do you think? Could it work or should I rethink the whole thing? A dark sapphire blue would be easier, would it be better too?
