Girl chooses colors

Girl plays pretend.
Girl loves colors.
Girl grows up.
Boy meets Girl.
Boy proposes to Girl.
Girl plans a wedding.
Girl is indecisive.
Girl chooses colors.

Since I was a little girl, when asked, my favorite color would usually be purple. Although I did go through a pink phase. And when I was in junior high it was yellow and blue. Then for a while I loved brown. Lately it's been grey.

As I've tried to put together a coherent thought for our wedding, one of the things I keep going back to is colors. I've been back and forth and around and around about colors. I just can't seem to make up my mind.

I've come up with several different color combinations that I like.

Light Blue, White, Tan:
I love the feel of these colors together... calming, cool. Simple.
I can totally see this somewhere like the beach!

Orange, Turquoise/Blue:
I like these colors together, but it is even better for us because J is a DIE HARD Miami Dolphin's fan. Like he gives a whole new name to the word fanatic. I think it would be cool to incorporate his love for all things Orange and Teal by using some variation of it in our wedding.

Purple, Turquoise, Navy, Grey:
I've seen a lot of peacock feathers in the recent blog posts I've read. I think they're very cool looking! I love the colors. I put these colors together kind of by accident and kind of ended up loving them!

Gold, Pink, Champagne:
My best friend Davene is getting married in August, so we've been sharing ideas back and forth. This is actually a color combo she came up with and decided not to use. I like it a lot. It seems very classy and expensive :)

So what do you think? Which color combination do you like best? What venue would you pick to go with the colors? Leave me a comment and let me know what YOU think!

Lots of planning has happened over the last couple of weeks, so I have lots of blogs coming up! Some really cool DIY projects too! AND... I bought a dress :) Stay tuned!

Gold, pink and champagne is my vote. But of course go with your favorite. Just remember that in 40years you'll still be looking at the pictures and you don't want to say, "What was I thinking?"
Love you Diandra!

I absolutely love the pink, gold and champagne theme, but then pink is one of my favorite colors. I do like the idea of incorporating the Dolphins in your wedding since Javier is such a big fan! Too many cool choices!

i love the light blue, tan, and white..and the peacock one. out of the two..i would go with the lt blue, tan and white. its more elegant i think.. but also harder to find flowers that match as there aren't too many light blue or tan flowers. lol so i guess, out of the four, think about which ones you can accurately match with other decor. good luck. i know that whatever scheme you choose, it will be fabulous.

My vote is between the blue/tan/white and the gold/pink/champagne... Both are very classy and ultra romantic.

I've been lurking on your blogs for a long time... And I just love wedding planning so much, I'm so glad you're sharing!
My favorite is the 2nd set of colors: Orange-Coral and Turquoise-Aqua. I think it would look fab in any local and I like that J's favorite team has those colors.
