please help with colors - Lilac and ???

Recommended Posts

Hi! So far our only wedding color is lilac - my bridesmaids' dresses are a light lilac color. I was thinking a baby blue might complement that. But here's the issue - we are having our reception on the lawn (next to the beach) and for our centerpieces, we are actually going to be using the bridemaid's bouquet's but the wedding planner is going to open them up (maybe add some more roses I'm not sure) - the bouquets are white roses with lavender-colored hydrangeas which will then be in a vase lined with green leaves. So for the table cover and tie-backs, what color should I use?

For the table cover, I wanted to put a colored organza over the white tablecloth - but if we use lilac, will the bridesmaid's blend into the table. Or if we use baby blue, will it look like the centerpieces don't match the table?? Should I use the same color for tie-backs? I like the look of both the blue and lilac tie-backs, but will the lilac look bad on the grass?

I know I'm obsessing over details - but please share your ideas :)

I like the look of the darker purple with lilac. I also think a sky blue would look good. I tihnk if you use the same color on the table and the chairs you will be fine. Don't worry about the grass...nobody will be thinking "oh my God, I can't believe she used that color with the green grass."

Thanks for the ideas -

do you think it would look okay with darker purple tablecovers (i was going to get organza tablecovers so it would be a little sheer over the white tablecloths) with the lavender hydrangea/white rose flowers and then lavender chair tiebacks?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
