Wedding colors

I know I have told people that I'm not having wedding colors but I realise that is a mistake. I love color! Why wouldn't I have wedding colors? Here are some swatches to give you a rough idea of what we've planned (it's more of a royal "we" because James is color blind.)

First up, a "muted hot pink" (the sample is acutally a nail polish sample but it's the color I love)

Next up is a bright sage green:
I'm not sure what to call this last color but it's sort of a muted gold/metallic dove gray. The samples I have used here are actually samples from my nail polish and shoes. Yep, I am THAT good at matching colors on-line.

I'm going slightly off the goldish color for my flowers and using yellow. I didn't want to have yellow as a wedding color because it can be hard to wear. I'm really pleased with the colors and I can't wait to see how it all comes together!
As far as other updates go, we found an apartment! I'm moving in first and then James will join me after we're married because that is how we do things. School is starting to wind down for the semester. I have two more shows to design, one is just for class and the other one is for the Lyric season: Always...Patsy Cline. It opens June 30th and runs June 30-July 3, 2 p.m. matinee on 3rd, July 16, July 21, July 24, with additional 2 p.m. matinee and it closes on July 28. The performances begin at 7:30 p.m. More information can be found here.
