Oh Happy Blog: Now in Technicolor

Listen up brides... I understand that you LOVE Brown... you love it with blue and with green.... you love it with pink and with red and every once in a while with yellow... and I love it to- well did love it... but I have seen so many brides go into a two-color mind set (one which is almost always brown) and it saddens me... I also feel a bit guilty... you see, once upon a time I was tired of seeing so many colors thrown together half-hazardly and thus I was an advocate of the "Brown Wave" which offered a more stream-line and modern approach.... but that wave has passed and there are other options out there for the modern bride... there are innovative ways to use ALL colors and now that the days of tulle and mirror centerpieces have finally been excommunicated from our little circle... let's start a new revolution... one that is full of color and style and a little less .... well... brown.

I could not agree more! I am currently loving pewter as a dark accent. Much more modern than boring old brown and I haven't found a color yet with which it clashes! By the way, great blog, I am happy to have found you!

I am totally on board with the Anti-Brown Revolution! It is a bit tired and so predictable! Weddings should be fun and colorful and not look like prom! And I too love the pewter/grey option as a neutral or dark tone... how fun! Now let's hope it catches on! :)

Well count me in with the anti-brown movement ... it's too muted for me and I'm loving super crisp and saturated colors right now. The pictures you posted are lovely and vivid! Thanks for the color revolution.

I really love the last three photos. Great color! It really pops against the stark white:)
