Spin the Wheel: Wedding Color Palettes

Dear Minister Sue,

FYI, the Lawyer and I will not be writing our own vows or anything like that. I'm hoping we find some nice readings to personalize things, and otherwise I'll just be relying on YOU to provide us with the Ceremony of Dreams. No pressure though.

Now, can we get back to the more material side of weddings? Thanks.

I am trying to cram as much planning into the next week or so until I start school and thus am no longer a lady of leisure, but a mere lifeless graduate student.

First and foremost, I am trying to nail down our color scheme. Yes, without ever seeing our venue in person (and yes, before you ask yet again, I am still ringless). I have seen photos of our Location of Dreams, though, and wept through the DVD photo montage they gave us - multiple times - so I think I can take a pretty good gander at colors.

Plus, look what I have to help me! It's a color wheel from Brides.com to help figure out the perfect palette.

I am a little embarrassed to admit how many hours I have spent spinning this thing. It is totally addictive and basically made me want to have like 20 weddings so I can use all the combos I love.

Really, if anything, the wheel made me more undecided about the colors I should pick. And while I know I have great taste, I am no designer. So I'm hoping you and our gals can help me. Any ideas? What colors work best for a simple, elegant fall Wedding of Dreams?

I will say that my favorite color is orange. In fact I kind of have a minor obsession with it.

Discuss.

Love,

Your Favorite Design-Challenged Domestic Goddess


P.S. On a more serious note, as New Yorkers (both current and former), we just want to say that our thoughts are with all those families and other individuals for whom this is a very, very sad day.

Stopped by to check out your blog, very cool. I was watching Today this morning and they were talking about a pretty cool website where you can buy wedding stuff direct and save tons of $$$. Im not getting married but I jotted it down cause it seemed pretty cool.

Hey lady! Thanks for the comment on my blog, glad you like those upside-down goblets, it is a fun idea!

To add to your imagination, I listed under your comment a bunch of other ideas you could do w/those upside-down glasses...there's SO much cool stuff you could stuff under there...lol.

As for your colors, you love orange, you're having a fall wedding, and well, let me sit on that one for a little and see what I can (maybe try) to come up with!

Cheers!
