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?

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
