Similiar Looks, Different Weddings

Not The First or Last...

The last few weeks, it's become more and more obvious that we're not the first (or only people) to have a wedding. We're talking about an age-old tradition that rich or poor, old or young, any and all different races and in all different places does one way or another. 

Despite this fact, most brides (including myself) really want their event to be unique. The chances are though that someone had the same or at least similiar ideas before you. Take for instance, our color palette. Initially, I was thinking light pink, champagne and olive green, which is fairly common I'm sure, but then I got the bright idea to add burgundy! I though this was the pefect shade to add a fall feel to our overall look and would be "different!"  

Well, ever since I got the idea I've seen loads of weddings using this very same color palette. Now, do I think our wedding is going to be exaclty like those weddings before us that used the same colors? Of course not. If nothing else, it proves to give us a good idea of what we can expect to see, which is exciting and helpful! Check out these pictures from The Treasured Petal blog and let me know what you think.

Does this look generic?

Go for it... great ideas are borrowed from but that doesn't mean they end up being cookie cutter. How you express your colors can only be unique.

{Thanks for sharing the great ideas at Treasured Petals}
