We were initially set on having an October wedding,which lent itself very easily to different themes and color combinations. Our original plan was a combination of chocolate brown, deep green, cobalt blue, and pumpkin orange. We figured we'd be able to pull out the orange, green, and brown in autumn tree and leaf based decorations and then throw in pops of blue here and there.
But we realized that the second half of our reception will take place in our backyard and October is just too tempermental in Minnesota. So, we've moved our date up to August 31, 2013.
I think I'm going to keep the color scheme, but change the orange to a brighter mango orange and the green to more of a kelly green.
August is such a strange month here in Minnesota though. It's not quite summer and it's not quite autumn. I really don't know where to go with decor and stationary themes.
