Royal, Yellow, Gold

Yesterday, I did a post for Tracy, who wants a cranberry and pistachio color scheme for her wedding, but has mainly found venues that are predominantly navy in color. That board incorporated navy into the cranberry and pistachio color scheme.

She has been thinking of going with a royal and canary yellow color scheme instead, but doesn't feel that the color scheme has warmth to it. So I put an inspiration board mainly in royal and yellow, but with hints of gold and bronze to warm it up. I also varied the shades of yellow so that the scheme wasn't made to feel flat by the use of just one clear, sunshiney yellow. The range of pale creamy yellows to the deep orangey yellows have more depth and interest for the eye.

Incidentally, I have worn this bridesmaid dress before (in maroon) and loved it--it's flattering on everyone (even the bridesmaid who had recently had a baby), comfortable, easy to dance in and it doesn't require a strapless bra! Also, it's affordable, priced at just $158. And yes, I have worn it again! Anyway, that's the end of my little commercial for this particular bridesmaid dress. On to the board!
