Egyptian Themed Wedding

Some brides like themed weddings. Planning for these can be rather fun - time to let your creative juices flow! To make a themed wedding work, you would need to come up with unique ideas - don't get bogged down with cliched ideas on themed weddings. Be spontaneous!

Today's post is on Egyptian Themed Weddings, and we hope we will provide you with a starting basis for planning your themed wedding.

Colors to Consider for an Egyptian Themed Wedding

Egyptologist Anita Stratos informs us that the Ancient Egyptian palette had six colours:

* red (desher)
* green (wadj)
* blue (khesbedj and irtiu)
* yellow (kenit and khenet)
* black (khem or kem)
* white (shesep and hedj)

More colors to consider using modern Egyptian culture as a basis: gold, black, and red. Also dark blue, orange, green, basically vibrant, rich colors.

Some other ideas you can use to inspire yourself in planning for an Egyptian themed wedding.

1. Think about the most suitable decoration related with your favorite ancient Egyptian story. If you choose Nefertiti, then you need to make an Egyptian background. Adorn your venue with pyramids, palm trees, desert and oasis.

2. Choose a wedding dress and Egyptian make up. However, if you still want to wear modern wedding dress, you can add Egyptian accessories. Thus, you do mix and match on your body.

3. Play Egyptian traditional music.

4. Use miniature of pyramids or Egypt special flower

5. Serve Egyptian food for your guests or you can mix the menu with your favorite ones, so your guests will have many options to choose.

6. Give Egyptian craft for wedding favors. You can also make Egyptian cookies as the favors.

Summer Wedding Color Palette Ideas

For some of us, summer is fast approaching, bringing with it plenty of warm and sunny days. Summer weddings (June, July and August) are popular choices for weddings. Here are some vibrant color scheme ideas for summer weddings.

What are Color Schemes?

Color schemes are essentially a set of complementary colors that you pick, which will form the basis for your entire wedding. For example, chalky, light, faded, powder and talcum colors are accompanied by more intense shades of taupe beige and mauve. A range of dynamic, light pastels can be added to the base: pink, greenish yellow, orange, vibrant green. You can play off colors from this palette.

The above description is an example of a color scheme. The below shows you some of my more favorite color scheme choices for summer weddings.

Vibrant Summer Wedding Color Scheme Ideas

Color: Purple
Complementary Colors: Navy and Fuchsia

Purple shades are in this year - and I love it! Make your wedding unforgettable with the boldest shades of summer. A wedding laden with heaps of cosmos flowers, irises, and star gazer lilies is a veritable fairy tale haven for romance. These shades are the perfect option for making statement bouquets and incorporating pops of color in a tasteful manner, such as with wedding accessories like a cute ballet flat or unexpected invitations.

Purple Weddings Inspirations

Color: Dark Blue
Complementary Colors: Yellow or Sea Blue

In a strictly nautical theme, these summer wedding colors are a omnipresent force in the color scheme for this season and are a great option for a beach-themed wedding, whether on or off the sand. These colors scream summer with a classic feel and are an adorable option for bridesmaid's dresses and wedding accessories that will never go out of style. There are tons of resources from which to draw inspiration to create a great wedding with this color scheme. From sailboats to sandals and seagulls to seashells, summer favorites abound.

Blue Yellow Wedding Inspirations

Color: Gold
Complementary Colors: Pink Champagne or Coral

Taking inspiration from watercolor sunsets and glittery champagne, this color combination can be a truly magnificent and elegant option for an outdoor wedding at dusk. With fireflies, floating lanterns, and twirling dresses, this selection evokes a romantic, almost Shakespearean-like feel. A wedding by these colors, nothing could ever be as sweet!

Gold-Pink Weddings Inspirations

Color: Turquoise
Complementary Colors: Beige, Yellow or Gold

Of course, the opulence of summer's sunsets and greenery are perfect inspiration for an outdoor garden wedding. These summer wedding colors emulate the impression of the illuminating sun and can create an inviting, cheery, and carefree atmosphere. Consider the use of depression glass, ribbons, or parasols to create a Gatsby-like garden party feel. Pinwheels and bold, statement jewelry are great wedding accessory options and are also a fun way to incorporate the elements of summer.
