Receptions are all about taste – starting with the colors. This August bride chose to treat her guests to a theme of turquoise and tangerine – what fun! From the stunning flowers in the foyer to the candy jars and whimsical lanterns in the ballroom, everything looked fresh and sweet. Perfect for a summer wedding. When deciding what colors to use for your reception, think in terms of three. Your base color (white or ivory) and two accent colors. Black and white counts as two color picks and then add a third for accent. For decor, keep it simple and pick items that reflect the light. Glass jars, beaded place mats, silk table runners – all can be color coordinated and cost effective.
