I had originally wanted royal blue, lime green, and turquiose to be my colors. After doing a ton of googling on the internet and going on sites like the Knot and weddingbee I found something that changed my mind.
My FI chose for us to go to the wineries in Sonoma and Napa Valley in CA. I would have never thought that I would use it for the theme of my wedding but when I say this neat idea of giving names to tables instead of numbers (the example was actually giving names of casino games) I just knew I had to change my theme.
I have now changed my colors to incorporate the rich jewel colors of a vineyard but refuse to get rid of the royal blue. To help make it look more conducive I have included navy blue, deep purple, and burgundy. I am also using some light blue and lots of ivory to lighten up the room since it is candlelight diming room (very romantic).
Do you have any similar stories on why you chose your theme???
