DIY wedding: How to choose wedding colours


I'm kicking off this week of DIY wedding-ness by talking colours...

I was originally going to make this a step-by-step how-to, but I've decided I'm just going to show you how I did it, and what the end result was, in pictures. Enjoy:

1. I created a mood board with all the images I loved most:
Wedding colours, peach, lemon, mustard, gold, grey, neutral, colour board
{The Colour Board I created not long after we got engaged. Or maybe slightly before. Don't tell..}

2. I identified my palette based on the images... roughly
Wedding colours, pastel, palette, peach lemon neutrals yellow
{Try to think in terms of colour families - any shade (e.g light pink, dark pink) within that family is fine it doesn't need to be too matchy matchy!}.

3. Gathering supplies...

I wanted a handmade style wedding with happy, sunshiney colours. I kept that loosely in mind when I chose my products, and they all came together perfectly even though they aren't too matchy matchy.

4. ...and then watch it all come together!

wedding flowers, pastel, peach pink lemon

paper bag wedding favours, candy bags, candy buffet, dollar mix bag

amber brooch, DIY wedding

Yellow lemon tarts

Pastel flower napkins, DIY wedding

Lemon bridesmaid dresses, wedding

Pink, yellow, macaroons, engagement ring, cluster ring

It seems I've always had a thing for pink/peach and yellow?!

We also had DIY wedding invites and I'll be sharing on how I made them tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by!
