Blue and Green?

Hello :)

Like many others, I am trying to plan my wedding. I really like jewel tones (especially emerald, sapphire, crimson, and amethyst) while my fiance likes fall colors (olive green, brown, cornflower blue, and sometimes he'll throw in maroon or black or something else). We are getting married at the end of March in Columbus, Ohio, but we don't have a venue yet.

Basically, we decided on blue as our main color, and I was trying to play around with a way to do maybe green (or another shade of blue?) and cream as accent colors. My most recent thought as been teal with royal blue and cream, but I have no idea if that goes together or not. Also, I think it might be difficult to find accessories, bridesmaid dresses, and other things in teal.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Both my fiance and I are completely unartistic. I'm a history PhD student, and he's an actuary.

Dear Taradanielle:
I think that cornflower blue would be beautiful for a spring wedding. I can see that with a gorgeous creamy off-white and a seafoam green. Also, cornflower blue looks good on just about every complexion type there is. If you look under the group name "gifted for colors" there will be a pallette there called "spring wedding" . It's for you. Hope you like it.

Congratulations! Here's my take ~ cream, soft green, dark duck-egg, teal and a navy/royal blue :)

You have all provided some very lovely suggestions. I was just wondering, is there a color wheel on this site? If so where? I suppose that's why this site is called what it is. I'm just learning how to navigate my way about this portal.

Royal blue and cream might be a bit much depending on the season. I'd go for light blue and cream.

These are really lovely.

Hey Darius - thanks for all the work to get the spammers under control. So happy to hear there are things in the works! I am enjoying working in new ways on CL while things are being implemented.

Wildfire2013 - No one can post any badges or links at this time. Just comments (text). That is part of the process of getting rid of the spammers. We all miss seeing the
badges. But they'll be back at some point! :)

Hello Friends. Yes, the captcha for comments and disabling of links is frustrating... but we're fighting an unpleasant fight against spammers that have had free reign to spam the crap out of this site the past couple years... also who likely shut it down for a couple weeks with a DDoS attack. We've implemented some heavy handed things like the captcha to combat the spam... this isn't a long term solution, but thoughtful solutions that allow creative good intentioned folks to continue sharing the love, while preventing spammers who have a ton of resources, is not quick. It was only a several months ago that I took the site back from Autodesk and I'm working with a team that will have the resources to start making improvements and helping this awesome group of people get back to the community they love.

Thank you for the update Darius.

I find the captcha thing slightly frustrating (mostly because I am part robot on my mother's side), but I'm delighted with the reduction in spam.

Now if you could just make a captcha algorithm that uses Colourlover patterns instead of photos, we'd be all set....click all the patterns with butterflies, click the florals, etc :)

Thank you very much for commenting here.
It really means a lot.
Especially since I know you have other things on your mind at the moment.

No matter what problems CL is going through, I am happy to stick with it and bear a few temporary unpleasantnesses. CL is definitely worth it.
But getting a heads-up like this is important to me because it lets me know the people in charge do care, about us and the site.

So, as I said, thank you, with my sincerest gratitude.
