Wedding Bells: Kris & Mark

inspiration for colors, themes and stuff

February 17th, 2005

The Café Terrace on the Place du Forum, Arles, at Night, c.1888

So…..people ask me what colors you want in the wedding…Mark and I have passively discussed wedding colors…lord knows I’m not the best when it comes to nit picky details like color.

The other day….I got this comment on my Brainpickings…

Just talking to your mom about the flowers for your wedding. I started to check around on how much they charge to do the flowers but they’re all very expensive. So I suggested to your mom that we’re better off doing it by ourselves. I’m pretty sure we’ll be able to come up with great ideas on bouquet and flower arrangements. Let me know what kind of flowers you want for your bridal bouquet and what color.


Ok…so…this is how we got our idea for our wedding colors…

In Dec…my parents, Mark and I sat down at the dining table to discuss wedding details. We kicked around numbers for the church and the reception. The dining table is next to the kitchen. The kitchen has yellow walls. A copy of Van Gogh’s Cafe Terrace was hung above the stove….

I pointed at the painting and remember Mark and I talked about using the color of the night sky in our wedding….that dark blue on the edge….I also thought it would be nice to add in some silver star accents. Folks thought it was pretty….my mom said Ninang kept asking about the color so she could look for Jen’s dress….

So – that’s how we settled on dark blue with silver accents – as our wedding color theme.

For my next post – wedding ideas from an English convention…and other details.
