Earth Colors

We’ve finally decided on what colors to use. After several change of minds, I asked Far-ouT what is his favorite colors. He mentioned few red, gray, black, blue, yellow…YELLOW! He requested for light ones though, I too do not approve of dark colors. I particularly like ORANGE. We settled for earth colors. The right shades of it will compliment the outdoor theme. We will carefully choose the color for the invites, the entourage dresses, up to the littlest details in the reception. We want to show a little of nature that we love…so I surf the ever reliable net and found these few info about it…
