What do you already have purchased that’s navy, orange, and yellow?  If the bridesmaids and the groomsmen are in charcoal,  you can totally change up colors to a more shabby chic look.  Charcoal and blush is a perfect pallette for shabby chic.

Kortman5591:  It’s not unusual for brides to have trouble choosing their color palette, theme (if they have one), etc. Many Bees have posted about their difficulties.

You can still use navy, orange, and yellow with shabby chic. Not everything needs to be faded white, ivory or pink.

Here is a yellow and grey shabby chic wedding. The shabby in this case comes from the containers used on the head table.

Kortman5591:  My colors are Navy and green! (and a little yellow) but I had trouble picking them out. I wanted red, then spring colors, then no colors at all, then the MIL wanted us to have a color theme…

So basically my FI chose our colors haha!

Anyway there’s nothing wrong with changing it up a bit as long as they haven’t gone out and purchase yellow rainboots yet. Also, that’d be a cute look, but what if it doesn’t rain?

Kortman5591:  Your wedding sounds a lot like ours. Our ceremony will be in Nashville, TN but when we come home we will have a reception and it will be on our farm.

I was considering the paler colors, as we are getting married in Dec, and I thought the lighter colors would blend better with the time of the year as well. But, last night while looking for dresses to suit our daughters who are 8, 10 and 12 but range in size greatly (the youngest still wears girls clothes, my 10 year old can wear juniors clothing and my FI’s 12 year old wears women’s sizes) I found some great hot pink dresses. These will thrill the youngest to pieces and I find that finding ones that will go with their personality is much easier, it has been easier to find the bright colored clothing than lightly colored clothing. So I believe we will be going with this instead of the lighter colors.

Coral, which is my favorite color, is another option. I know typically these would be considered summer colors, but it is my wedding.

Both boots sound really cute! I changed my vision and colors a few times as well! Seriously, it will all fall together. I recommend getting a big cork board and litereally pinning ideas of your vision and then stick with things that fall into that cohesive theme. You’ll drive yourself crazy if you keep changing the farther into planning you get. Give yourself a break this early on, and lock in the big stuff, and the details like decor and theme will fall into place with the big stuff (venue, season, etc.)
