Our Motif: The Elegance of Nature

Dear Online Diary,

Selecting the color combination for our wedding is a walk in the park. Nature is our wedding inspiration, hence combination of blue, green and yellow are our hands down choices. Blue represents the sky above us, Green represents the plants, trees and flowers and Yellow represents the sun.

Aside from that, online resources gave meaning to these wonderful colors. Let’s take a look of what these colors symbolize:

Blue symbolizes youth, spirituality, truth and peace.
Green symbolizes life, nature, fertility and well being.
Yellow symbolizes happiness, prosperity, wisdom & intellectual energy.

But we do not want to settle with primary colors so we decided to play with these shades. It took us six months before the final color motif was selected. The final choices are:

Teal (#008080) is for elegance. This is our primary color.

100 Euro Green (#86C67C) is a shade so cool that I never thought it exists. This is our secondary color.

Gold (#8B7500) is perfect for detail and contrast. This is the minor color.

Overall styling: Teal and Gold damask.

I’m so in love with teal and gold damask. It spells nothing but elegance. Surely, this is going to be the backdrop for invites as well as church and reception details and programs.

The inspiration board is currently on the works but here’s a sneak peak of what’s to expect:

Next will be the story behind our wedding theme and the final inspiration board. I can’t wait to share it.
