So today I got some disturbing news. My fiancé has been married before. I had been asking him what were the colors of the previous wedding but he didn’t remember. So he had to call ex mother in law to find out. My worst fear. Their colors were blue and silver. I had also choose blue as my theme is a romantic night at the beach. So lots of candlelight and different shades of blue. Fiancé said I should staytwitch everything I have selected, however I don’t want the same things she had. I have selected bridesmaid dresses, venue, centerpieces, also doing up lighting. Am I wrong for not wanting the same things now and having to change my theme to something else? I am really sad and fiancé doesn’t get it . I need a woman’s advice cause some of those same relatives will be at our wedding.Also, if u have a theme ideas would be great. The wedding and reception at botanical gardens

Stay with your colors and theme. I’m sure it won’t be anything like his first wedding. 🙂

I am with your fiance. Stay with what you have. Same colors is so minor. There are so many styles, shades etc of wedding everything that it will be very different.
Whats more your fiance couldnt remember the colors, anyone who had gone to that wedding definately will not remember. I can’t even remember the colors of the last wedding I went to.

@Latrise: I honestly think no one will notice. Really there are only so many colors on the color wheel. That being said, I would probably be turned off of this color since it was used in his previous wedding. If you haven’t bought anything yet, I think you can still change it if you really want to. If you decide this is the color for you than I doubt anyone will think twice about it.

I wouldn’t worry about it. First of all, people will be focused on you and the overall feel of the reception. I’d be willing to be most of his family don’t remember what the “theme” was for his first marriage- they remember the overall experience. Second you could put 10 weddings side by side that are using blue and silver, and they will all be sooooo totally different. Instead of worrying about the past, enjoy the wedding planning now. Celebrate you and your FI in your wedding, and do what makes you happy. Its about you and your future not what happened years ago .
