Fabulous Color Combinations

As I've written before, our wedding colors are lavender/purple and yellow. As I peruse wedding websites and looking at pretty pictures, I've kept my eye out for purple and yellow themes.

I also try to enter as many contests as I can in the hopes of getting a gift certificate or some custom designed accessory. And I finally won one! I just had to comment on my wedding colors and I won a copy of a wedding magazine. Not only that, my colors were featured in a blog post and she sent me some more inspiration boards.

I love the color combination and her blog post has even more examples of the colors together.

And as I told her in my comment - the color theme came about as a result of an ice cream FI and I shared on a date. We were at Sundaes & Cones and order mango and taro ice cream. The mango was a bright, pale yellow and the taro was a lovely lavender and I was entranced by how pretty those two colors looked next to each other that I tucked the idea into the back of my head and kept it until we were engaged and starting to plan this wedding.
