Apple Green Wedding Color Palette

Peridot is the birthstone for August! So, I went nuts over this pretty hue of apple green, which became my inspiration for putting together this inspiration board consisting of apple green and lemon. Imagine crafting a color palette matching this color with anything from plum to chocolate brown. You can even infuse some touches of gold to make it truly glamorous! And of course, don't forget it can also be coordinated with vibrant hues of fuchsia, yellow, and orange. Check it out:

Citrine Wedding Color Palette - Oh WOW!

I seem to be on a jewel hunt lately! Citrine is my next adventure with its beautiful yet understated elegance. Imagine yourself in a citrine-inspired wedding decorated with sparkly details of this wonderful stone. I can highlights of gold painted with soft touches of ivory, ecru, or vanilla cream. The look is just stunning! Think of Hollywood glamour here! The following are my favorite elements to put this scene together:

Purple Wedding Color Palette

I'm somewhat mesmeried by the color purple. It's one of those colors that's mysterious yet the more you get to know the color, the more elegant it becomes. Whether you choose to have a monochromatic palette of purple or a combination of colors, purple will speak to you as if it is saying "c'mon, do you dare try me?" Here, I've put together a few of my favorite purple themed wedding items:

Bridesmaid dress via - the taffeta fabric is so luxurious! I think this can also make a beautiful substitute for a wedding gown, if you don't plan on having any bridesmaids. Think unconventional here!

Remember that purple comes in varying shades from lavender to aubergine, so consider how to match these colors by deciding on what shade you want to use. For instance, do you want the look dramatic with a dark shade or one that is light and elegant with lilac. And then find matching hues to coordinate with these colors.
