lauren: ivory, dove grey, and black

Ivory Shawl Wrap
{ ivory shawl wrap by ellita }

ok! now that i have solicited a lifetime's worth of color samplers, here goes.

i hereby reserve the right to: select as inspiration arrives; go in the order i feel is most interesting to readers; and improvise little jazz riffs as i see fit. please keep in mind that i'm not endorsing anything particular (if garters, favor boxes, or fancy earrings aren't your thing at all, take what's useful and leave the rest :) -- and i *may* not get to everyone but i promise to try.

to make things more fun, if you find something on etsy you think would be great for someone's color scheme, tell us about it (links please!) in the comments.

first, congratulations to lauren, who got married yesterday -- hooray! hope you had a fantastic time! lauren's color scheme seems like a great warm-up round since -- hey -- she's already married, so how badly can i do? right?

Our wedding colors are ivory, dove grey, and black (with a few bits of white and silver).
We are having the "anti-pink wedding". And chose our wedding colors based upon our location -- the northern pacific coast.

  1. Wow... I'm internet famous. ;)

    Just got home from the wedding, decompressing before we hop on a plane... Pictures to come when we return, if anyone's interested!

    (Will probably be posted on this blog.)


  2. I love that sea glass necklace!

  3. I just wanted to re-iterate... I think this is a smashing idea, and even if you don't get to mine, whatever, because now I can oogle at all of the Etsy goodness for weddings that I *might* have had. LOL!

  4. Hi,
    I was looking around on the net today and came across your site. I like it very much. I have a similar site and thought it might help us both out to swap blogroll links.

    Take a look at my site and let me know if you are interested. If you are send me an email with your url and the text you'd like used in the blog roll. I'll put your link up right away and then send you the text and url for my site.

    Look forward to hearing from you!
