I found this on The Perfect Palette and fell in love with the dynamic colorscape using poppy and lavender as the base colors. I wouldn't have thought to mix the two as they seem to be strong enough on their own. To me, I would have been afraid to mix them with fear that they'd be competing against each other.
What do you think of this color combination? I think it's striking and absolutely gorgeous! I really wish I was more talented in the realm of picking and merging colors together. I will leave that to the pros as they know a lot more than me.
I think that for these two to work as they do, you need soft, almost translucent shades to back these up. One more bold color, and it could look like an amusement park, which wouldn't be good.
Use this as inspiration for your own wedding plans. This is a great excuse to consider other colors that maybe you've been dreading. You never know what could happen. You may find the perfect wedding colors!
