Cheetah Colors!

We have found the Cheetah Wedding Color Palette! (Yes, it’s capitalized… the capitals make me feel like I accomplished something…)

If you remember, I wanted to introduce some new colors to our venue’s bold palette of black, white & yellow:

Thanks to the hive’s help, I was able to figure out what was wrong with my original palette—it was all the right colors, but the pinks were not the right tone. So after a little adjusting, I introduce you to the new and improved Cheetah color palette!*

Success! Black, white, lemon, petal, peony, & grey.

I am feeling much better about this palette and I don’t think I need to add anything else. I realized that I kept trying to put colors together that I liked, but didn’t necessarily go with our venue and therefore our overall look for the wedding.

Here is a loose inspiration board I threw together to help get a better idea of how these colors worked together:

Arranged by me in Illustrator, image sources: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 11, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, 14

So now I need to decide which of these colors I want to dress the Cheetah Girls in—keep in mind there are 8 of them, so whatever color we pick will have quite an impact. Black is out because I think it’s too dark for our outdoor desert wedding. White/ivory isn’t an option (Only for the bride at this wedding!). Yellow will really pop, but I don’t think it’s the right color for a lot of skin tones and Mr. Cheetah nixed the darker pink. So we are left with petal pink or grey.

So hive, what color bridesmaid dresses should I pick?

Option A: Petal Pink: flattering and colorful without being overpowering. But is it too delicate for our overall look?

Option B: Grey: Sophisticated and the bouquets will really pop—but I worry that’s it’s a tad boring and I do love color…

*I can still change my mind up until the wedding is actually here, right? ;)
