Recently, I have been congratulating friends left, right and centre as one by one, they get engaged. Woohoo! Anyway, I had always wanted to start a blog about our wedding planning journey, but as you all know, we got engaged and then got married in 2 months in Australia and then 1.5 months after that in UK. So basically, there was no time to start a new blog nor do a wedding planning scrapbook. I have to admit that wedding planning was extremely stressful due to the time constraint and distance and having to work at the same time and adapt to a new life in Melbourne. But thank God for amazing family and friends who helped us throughout our journey.
Anyway, I know we had limited time to do wedding planning so I really had to make quick decisions on everything. And I made the decision to allow my 4 bridesmaids to choose their dresses in whichever colour and style they wanted. They chose royal blue.
What? What? Royal blue??? I thought that they would pick the typical bridesmaid-sy colours like pink or lilac…but they chose royal blue! I just didn’t expect that. But I was okay with it…till I had to choose my bouquet. I had always wanted pink roses. I love pink and I love roses. But I had stumbled upon some wedding forum which said that pink clashes with blue!! WHAT TO DO???
I didn’t want to be the bride with clashing colours.
I didn’t want people to laugh at me for my bad taste in colour scheme.
I was sleepless for a few days! Seriously, it affected me that much! Ask my bridesmaids because I annoyed them for days about this clashing colour scheme!
And then, just like that, I had a brainstorm. I flicked through all the wedding magazines and cut out pieces which would help me envisage our wedding day and then gathered all of them together. I made a collage.
And there you have it! It didn’t look bad. The colours didn’t clash! And who cares what stupid wedding forums say anyway. If I want pink roses for my wedding day, I shall have them!
Tips On How To Choose Wedding Colour Scheme
- Go with what you want.
- If you find it hard to envisage, then make a collage with cut-outs from magazines.
- Ignore the rules on wedding planning from wedding forums.
And once again, congratulations to all those who are engaged!
