Color Palette & Contest
June 19, 2008

Here is the last color palette for today, inspired by the gorgeous lemon yellow image by Michele Michael...

Yellow is such an unbelievably cheerful color. It is the perfect palette for a Spring or Summer wedding, and yet today...I wanted to look at bringing the hue into a more organic, earthy vibe. I love the infusion of rust in the men's tie and the base of the lemon centerpiece. A tailored bridesmaid dress, hobnail candle holders and pretty yellow stationery bring kind of an vintage, ethnic charm to the look.


A Contest! So, after a fun day of color palettes, I thought that it was time to put this same challenge out to our readers! After all, some of our most innovative inspiration boards and real weddings are designed by YOU guys. Here's the deal...

Find one picture that completely inspires you...whether it's the colors within the image, the style or just the general feel that you get when you see it. Then, create a color board inspired by that image. The color board should be formatted similarly to those that I have featured today, using 5-8 images within 2 wide columns. I've found that this is the best layout for our blog format.

You can submit word documents, power point docs, jpegs or pdf files (jpegs are preferable). The deadline for entry is Friday, June 27th and I will feature my favorites on the week of Monday, June 30th. We will all vote for the winner that Friday. The prize will be a $250 gift certificate to the online store of your choice (must be US based and have the option to buy gift certificates online)!

All boards should be emailed, along with the original image that inspired the design, to abby at style me pretty dot com.
