Colors & Theme

When it came to picking wedding colors, I knew that I would stray away from colors such as pink or purple simply because Mr. E is not a fan of them. We talked about it shortly after we were engaged and decided that the best way to make the wedding about us would be to use our favorite colors: blue & green.

Our bathroom is in the beachy blue and green colors which led us to our "theme". My family has always loved to travel and that was one of the things that Mr. E found interesting when we first started talking on Since we've been together we've been on wonderful trips to San Antonio, Las Vegas, Philly, New Orleans, Disney, a Caribbean cruise and more. We decided that if we were going to have a theme to tie in the reception and some of the paper products that travel would be perfect. Here is a picture of a cake that sparked my travel theme interest.

We'll be incorporating the theme and colors into our paper products, the bridesmaids dresses, the groomsmen's ties & (hopefully) socks, flowers, & table names. I'm really excited to get to work with these colors & theme, as is our planner who said that she has never done a wedding in our colors before!

What colors did you chose for your wedding?  Did your FI give his opinions on colors?
