I promise not everything on this blog is going to be boring stuff about equal rights and politics and religion and truth. Some of it will be important wedding stuff, like: colors.
Now, if you know Lindsey and I you may have noticed a certain difference in the types of colors we favor. One might be called, oh, say, “earth tone” and the other, more… “primary”. If you don’t know us, feel free to guess who is who. Here is a clue: When I (Rachel) was graduating from eighth grade, my sister let me pick the colors for the cake for our joint graduation party. I picked orange, yellow, and pink. It looked smashing.
Fortunately, we came to consensus on wedding colors fairly quickly. They are a spectrum of pinks, and gray:
Those aren’t exactly the shades of pink in play, but they’re close enough. We’re saying a fuschia, a medium pink, and a light pink, with a cloud gray.
There is still much debating room in how we employ these colors (particularly the fuschia). (Back me up here though, fuschia is an awesome color, yeah?) I’m terribly excited though because colors means we are one step closer to picking clothes.
As an aside, let me point you to this Wikipedia entry on pink, where you can learn how pink once referred to a yellow hue, and other interersting trivia.
Finally, because I do like the links, and because I know that you need to move on with your internetting, here’s a blog about color (ok, it’s about interior design, but it’s about color) that I like: Colour Me Happy.
