This scarf which I bought at Toko Warisan Joo Chiat yesterday shows how green (teal? mint? turquoise?) can work with pink (coral? peach? rose?). I know some of you guys out there have memorised the names of all the shades of pink and green in existence, but I can’t pinpoint the exact name for a particular shade to save my life, so common names I shall use.
Anyway, I really like it! Although I realise that green is not a common colour used for a wedding dress, there’s just something about green that’s pleasing and easy to the eye – be it cool ones close to blue or warm ones like lime.
My friend F (hi F if you’re reading!), who in another life would be a wedding planner (the omputeh kind) told me that before I decide on anything for the wedding, I should first and foremost choose a colour palette. Now I’m not sure if she explained the following, but the impression I got is that once I’ve got a colour palette, everything from wedding decor to wedding dress to wedding favours to flower arrangements can be chosen to match the overall colour theme.
I thought that since I’m big on keeping the cost low, I’m not going to be particular about aesthetics (especially when it comes to wedding decor) but my girly side is tugging at me to at least colour coordinate!
Now tell me, where can I find all that exact names and colour samples for shades of pink and green??? Throw in cream too! And turquoise! And brown!
