Majolica, Warm Olive and Slate

Ok, so I’m loving this Majolica Blue that’s predicted to be a hot color for the Fall. Here’s another palette featuring this elegant shade…

Fall 2009 wedding colors: navy, green and grey

The bride and bridesmaids: For a formal Fall wedding, the bridesmaids would look stunning in floor-length blue dresses. The Warm Olive shade of cymbidium orchids would add a tangy twist. The bride could wear a traditional white gown, perhaps with Majolica shoes as her ‘something blue’.

The groom and groomsmen: Slate grey suits for the men with deep blue ties and a touch of green on the lapel.

Stationery Options: Our Love Logo #7 wedding invitation (printed in Slate ink on White paper) would work really well for an elegant Fall wedding.

We also posted this palette on the Southern Weddings blog…see it here.

    This color palette is perfection! I will be using almost exact the same colors for my wedding. Thanks for the great ideas.
