Seaside Lime: A Turquoise and Chartreuse Colour Scheme

Today, where I live, it was a snow day. The schools were canceled due to poor road conditions caused by a big snowstorm that we had the other night. The storm didn't even happen today and we're still dealing with it. That's the part of winter that I don't like and that keeps me dreaming of tropical vacations all season long. At the end of the tunnel (mid-April), there is a trip to the beautiful Dominican Republic waiting for me. My brother-in-law is getting married on the beach and I am so thrilled that I get to celebrate with them in paradise. It just CAN'T. COME. SOON. ENOUGH!!!

So in an effort to help tame my urges to pack my bags and move somewhere less snowy, I spent my day putting together this colour scheme that I've named Seaside Lime. If I had a destination wedding myself, I could totally envision using this palette! Turquoise, as I've mentioned before, is a personal favourite because it reminds me of the ocean. I've paired it with chartreuse, a lime-y, yellow-green colour and when balanced with some sandy neutrals, this bold combination looks festive yet put-together. While here in Canada in January, this pair might look a little intense and out of place, the tropics pretty much beg for these bright colours!

Are you planning or have you planned a destination wedding? I'd love to hear what colours you chose for your big day!

It's all in the details:
  • A chartreuse garter with turquoise flowers
  • Turquoise table runners over sandy brown tablecloths
  • Green spider flowers in an all-green bouquet
