You may recall an earlier fretting over what fabric we should use as tablecloths (more like squares to jazz up the white tablecloths), the worry over blue versus green, and my lamenting the loss of green as a wedding color.
Well, the decision, made by an interesting combination of timing, stress, the original one I chose being out of stock, and sheer frustration, actually has turned out to be a really solid choice that I am so happy with!
We went with a blue paisley that looks even better in person! It matches the bridesmaid dresses (and guys' ties) PERFECTLY! Plus, it incorporates a darker blue that will match the groom's navy suit quite well.
(excuse the iPhone picture... it's not the best representation of the colors in person...)
What happened to the green? Well, it has officially become an "accent" color ;) The favors are green, and oh so adorable...
Plus, the centerpieces will be made up of green produce, and I am hoping to add green ribbon and other green accents in other details as I come upon them (bouquets, the grass and general landscaping).
I always knew blue would be a dominant color, at least in the attire, because it's practically the only color the groom ever wears. But I will still squeeze some avocado in there wherever I can!
