I don’t think it’s too late to figure this stuff out. I had 7 months to plan a wedding, and had to change some ideas I originally had because I knew it wouldn’t work with what I wanted. And, it all turned out great.

Another bride in need of assistance with color scheme :  wedding ceremony reception Aqua Blue Yellow Party Palette

Aqua yellow gold pink coral wedding bright spring colors

turquoise and yellow.. I want blue, he wants yellow. Nice compromise! :)aqua and yellow wedding colors... Not sure of your colors but thought some of these were cool Search

Just some color combos that I found on Pinterest.

I was the same as Kacie – 7 month enagement. I changed some things here and there leading up to the wedding, but it all worked out well.

Well it’s too late to change the yellow. But all your other venodrs should have waaaaaaaay more than enough time to adjust to your new vision! You just have to figure out what it is.

I’ll say that my colors were purple and blue but you’d have no idea of that until you arrived at my reception. The maids were in blue, I had a blue hydrangea bouquet, the flowers at the church were white. There was pretty much no purple except for a hint here and there that only I would notice. But at my reception: the cake had both colors, the napkins and chair bows were purple, the favors were wrapped with both color ribbon. The uplighting was both colors.

So just to give you an example that ALL of the wedding colors don’t have to be part of every single element of your wedding. Well, unless that’s what you want. Then go for it! With 9 months anything is still possible. 🙂

If your girls have already bought their dresses, then it’s definitely too late to change the yellow, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add new colors into the rest! My wedding is in 8 months, and I just changed our color scheme two weeks ago. I was originally going for all blue, and one of the bridesmaids jumped to buy her dress 2 or 3 months ago (she didn’t show it to me, she didn’t tell me she was buying it, she didn’t tell me when she received it…frustrations hahaha), so I couldn’t change the blue dresses cause her mom had alreay dropped the $150. I did, however, realize that a bunch of other colors I liked tie in really nicely with the blue, and it’s going to be great to have those other pops of color in the flowers, cake, decorations, etc.

I’ve been engaged for about 10 months and had decided on a coral BM dresses with gold and ivory accents. Now 10 months later, and 9 months before the wedding, i’ve changed the colour scheme to purple BM dresses and champagne, pink an purple accents. In sum, I think you can definetly change your mind, even if you’ve had your mind set on one thing for a while.

Anyways, if you don’t switch, I still think yellow and aqua is very nice. I think this is really pretty, Might serve as inspiration!

You also don’t have to do 50% yellow and 50% aqua, it would probably be more flattering (in my opinion) to only do pops up the aqua, and introduce neutrals, like maybe more white, or a metallic like gold or silver.

Mmm I personally think sunflowers with yellow dresses is too much. There are natural blue flowers you could use, but not specifically aqua. I think peach/coral flowers would look really nice!
