Pink is my fav-o-rite colahhh

Ok, if you know me in real life- you know this is the biggest, fattest, juiciest, omg-blasphemous lie. Pink is my least favorite color. I hate it. Everything about it makes me cringe. The only time I like it is in nail polish.

I always said if I have a baby girl- she will have a yellow, lavender, or turquoise room- no pink in sight. I think it's mostly the way people {obnoxious girls} freak out and do pink overload, but in general I have always loved cooler colors, with the exception of my absolute favorite color, yellow.

I always thought I'd have a yellow and grey wedding. My obsession for yellow and grey is seen in my decorating throughout the house, but I didn't LOVE the idea once I started to envision my actual wedding details.

I have to get something off my chest. I'm obsessed with something lately and I'm almost ashamed to admit, I owe my nemesis, the color pink, a huge apology. So here it is.

WHEW! Now that that's taken care of... I can continue wedding theme searching with a clear conscience!

I am in love with blush tones for the wedding and have always loved antique gold- the two pair SO WELL together! White, as the third color is obviously wedding appropriate. Natural brown wood tone is another great complimentary hue, along with linen and burlap.

Here are some inspiration palettes thanks to the perfect palette!


love the grey and white stripes!

I am so excited about choosing blush as our main color... can I show you my stellar wedding shoes??!?

I'm pretty obsessed. And I've never had so much fun trying to break them in, prancing around in my house with them (ignoring that I'm in an oversized sweatshirt and old boxers with a messy afro)...

Of course, since I've never worn heels over 3 inches for longer than 3 minutes, I will be "dancing" (omg just the thought makes me want to cry/puke), and socializing during the reception in my lace toms that Ordy boy got me. LOVE my wedding shoes!!! 

So... to sum it up- I think I more than made up for my lifetime disdain of pink by including the ol' girl in my big day!!!


  1. The shoes are out of control gorgeous. I love the pinks and gold. Beautiful combination.

  2. I love your color scheme-- so pretty! Our wedding colors were pink and green. Those shoes are beautiful!
