Planning an Eco-Indie Wedding

Decisions: Colors + Other Basics

Posted on: December 21, 2008

I’ve delved into the world of wedding planning quite smoothly this week, though it still feels a bit alien. So far, my fiance (Logan) and I have made a few decisions about our wedding.

I’m taken aback by how quickly things have come together so far, though I know there is still a lot more to decide on. Here are the few things that we have settled on so far:

Goals: Seasonal, organic, local, indie/crafty
Date/Time: Saturday, May 15th, 2010; starting at 11:30 am
Attire: Wedding casual
Colors: Blue & Green
Vows: Non-denominational
Food: Italian buffet and cupcake tower with top-layer traditional cake for cutting ceremony

Speaking of colors, I was introduced to a very cool flickr tool this morning, thanks to a post over at BridalBuds. All you do is pick one (or more) colors, and the tool find popular pictures from flickr.com with your selections. Delighted with the visuals it found for our color scheme, I wanted to share them with you:

My boyfriend and I are often described as opposites. We do share the same ideas and values in a lot of important ways, but many of our personality traits are like Yin and Yang. Using blue and green as the backdrop for our wedding (as well as holding the ceremony outside), is a perfect example of nature‘s true Yin and Yang – the sky and the ground; freedom and stability; dreams and destiny.

At least … that’s how I see it. 😉
