    I had no colors. You don’t need to, but people get very confused when you tell them you don’t have colors.

    I think it’s nice to have some sort of continuity to the decor/attire/etc, but I personally dislike the super matchy matchy stuff. It’s not prom!

    I kind of fell into colors unintentionally. FI and I like blues, greens, purples. Silver over gold. Venue is white with lavendar accents And we’ll be doing pics in the fabulous gardens outside. BFF’s wedding last year was blue so we’re staying away from that. So we fell into dark purple and silver since it was all that was left of what we liked.

    My colors were accidental, too.  We chose plum for the BM dresses, and then after we met with the florist, we decided to go with peach, sage green, and ivory flowers.  BOOM!  Color scheme 🙂

    Mine came from the venue we booked. It’s got lots of wood and dark red walls so to keep it simple and not cover everything I am just using crimson and gold stuff to decorate.

    We arent having “wedding colors.” The idea really started to bother me because I spent probably a month trying to pick them, then once I picked them, I didnt know what to do with them. We are having an untraditional wedding with no “decor.” Our ceremony is in a butterfly garden that is standing only and limited set up allowed (such as a chair for the cellist.) Its beautiful as is. Then our reception is going to be at a steakhouse. The only thing I will be coordinating is the flowers… and maybe not even that. I love all light (not red or hot pink) flowers and would like to see a variety. The bridesmaids both get to pick their dresses. My MOH chose a champagne dress with a dark purple sash. I’ll let my other MOH pick whatever she wants as long as its a springy or neutral.  People get so confused when I say we arent having “wedding colors.” They also get so confused when I say my bridesmaids get to pick their attire. They look at me like I’m doing it all wrong and I imagnie them thinking “thats not how you get married!” Ugh, its not prom lol.

    I am with you, OP! I hated the idea of commiting to one or two colors… the idea of everything being coordinated to the T just didn’t appeal to me, and even now I find it odd that weddings have to be classified as being “a combination of colors”. Can’t it just be… “nice”? lol. Also, I am one of those people who does not have a favorite color, so just having one or two colors representing me would be too weird!

    (that being said we DID end up picking colors LOL – I mean, as a PP already said, we wanted there to be *some* sort of running theme/continuity!)

    SO our wedding colors are WHITE with black accents, and pops of color everywhere! (Our flowers).

    NOW FOR SOME INSPIRATION!!

    @kmaemu:  Oh I love your inspiration photos! That is almost exactly what we are trying to do (you said it way better) except we are using pastel flowers!

    I kind of have wedding colors. We’re doing blues with a silver to tie it all together. So there’s no official color (ie: Peacock and Pistachio or something), but we’re trying to keep the shades in the same neighborhood.

    I guess it you have an overall theme, you can just follow that, as opposed to having a color theme.  It’s whatever works for you and makes you happy.  PS>>I love that rainbow color theme – that’s fun.

    @kmaemu:  To me, this would be rainbow colors!

    I’m not sure a color scheme is all about matching.. I mean it is.. but don’t think a wedding would look so great if you used no rhyme or rythem in anything. Simply put, it would look like a rainbow threw up!

    That being said, even a rainbow wedding can look awesome! But you’d still be doing things in uniform, which would mean balancing out each color.

    ^This is uniform because its strictly rainbow colored. No golds or silvers or blacks. No pastels. All very bright colored.
