Last year my cousin got married in Nigeria and the colour scheme written on the invitation was Ribena Purple and Champagne Gold. I found this really hilarious, I actually couldn’t stop laughing and wondering what the heck is going on.
But if not for God’s infinite mercy, somebody would be laughing at me right now. I was going through the invitation for my wedding and I scrolled down to the colour scheme part, that’s how I saw Brides Family: Custard Yellow & Fuchsia Purple. Grooms Family: Coffee Brown & Baby Girl pink (I swear I’m not making this up) I told my mum that we have to go back to the drawing board because the colour description is not cutting it. She told me that that’s how things are done now a days because you don’t want people to wear different shades of one colour, in her words “Uniformity is Sexy”
I don’t understand this concept of referring to colours with funny names, where they do that at? These days you get to hear funny colour combinations at Nigerian weddings, cockroach brown, leaf green…. please this has to stop o
Anyway, after a lot of back and forth we have changed Custard yellow & Fuchsia Purple to Yellow and Purple and Coffee Brown & Baby Girl Pink to Brown & Pink.
Baby Girl Pink tho???? Really….LOL!!!!
