Norbert & Ana

Motif: Peacock Colors

Choosing the best wedding motif may seemed like such a trifling task, but in reality choosing the best color combinations is one of the hardest and the most tricky part of wedding planning.

It took me three months to decide which colors would suit mine's and Norbert's personality. Being a non-conformist, I pulled out the colors pink, purple and blue out of the choices because these are the most abused colors in weddings.

Read on to see how many color combinations I considered before landing on my final choice.

1. Orange and Gold

1. Orange and Gold

Orange is fastly becoming my favorite color because it is a bright and it reminds me of the sweet smelling vitamin c moisturizer that I put on my face every night. Plus, the fact that it will do wonders for my fair skin.

The Reality: Inay said that Orange is not for everybody, specially not for dark skinned people. Also, this color requires careful selection of fabric or I may end up with fish looking entourage.

2.Orange and Green

2.Orange and Green

I don't really want to let go of my orange wedding,so i'm keeping my fingers crossed that I could make orange work by combining it with other colors. I did my research and one website suggested that if you want a foolproof color combination, think of nature.So, with nature as my guide I came up with Orange and Green :)

The Verdict: No one would really want to look like an orange on a wedding.

3.Turquoise

3.Turquoise

Turquoise is such a vibrant and yet soft looking color, which reminds me of the clear blue-green waters of Boracay.

The Verdict: Nothing really negative about this color. Our wedding is set on a rainy season, and this color fits summer, beach weddings not the wet, rainy season.

4. Teal Green and Silver

4. Teal Green and Silver

Orange and Turquoise are out from my list and so I reverted to my good old favorite color: Green with silver accents.

The Verdict: Not really convinced with this color combination.

5.Cerulean Blue and Violet

What attracted me to this color is that it reminds me of the vibrant and attractive colors of a peacock.

The Verdict: This color can looked washed out or too intense depending on the lighting conditions.

6. Teal Green and Purple

6. Teal Green and Purple

Norbert and I were in Trinoma when I saw this really beautiful earrings, its a swirl of violet and teal green. I fell in love with the cool jewel tones of this color and firmly decided that this is our wedding motif.

The Verdict: Color combination is very unique and not very much used during weddings.
I love the vivid color of teal green, and yet it does not burn the eyes.
