Maybe you can help me figure out this dilemna.
We had originally planned our wedding for January, because the venues we’d been looking at were cheaper during that time and indoors.
I am going for a vintage, sort of in between victorian (slight steampunk vibes), art noveau, art decoish type wedding. My colors were golds, creams, browns, deep reds, blacks. That sort of palette.
Now we have found an amazing private estate to have the wedding and a lot of the space will be outdoors, so we figured we should move it to late spring or early summer so that the weather is better (I live in Los Angeles County, so the weather is USUALLY good most of the time, but it’s raining right now, so I’d rather not take my chances!)
One of my friends commented that he doesn’t think the colors will go now because of the time of year.
I’m sad because I love our color palette and have already purchased decor for the wedding.
What do you think bees? Does time of year really dictate colors that much?

@DaphneDescends: Not really! I had purples and pinks in a summer wedding and I’m having black and white in another wedding celebration. The colors really matter only if you’re looking for in-season flowers and want to save a little, but otherwise, go with what you like!

I think your colors will be fine at that time of year! I’ve been to tons of weddings in all seasons with all colors and I’ve never once thought that a color didn’t go with a season. Sure there are stereotypical colors for a season, but it’s not a color and a season will clash.

I don’t think anyone bats an eye; plenty of brides choose hot pink and Tiffany blue for ceremonies in the middle of November. Just part and parcel of planning a wedding. Go with what makes you happy!

Stick with your colours, they will still work. Don’t let anyone’s opinions sway you, it’s your day!
Well..you and your future husband, but ya know…lol.

@DaphneDescends: Stick with your colors…no one is going to think anything of it! I got married in October and I used lots of pinks and my MOHs dress was hot pink…..don’t worrry about it!

Stick with your colors! I don’t think wedding colors need to match seasons at all.

@DaphneDescends: Stick with the pallette you love! Also, I think that color schemes can get very haphazard looking when they’re adjusted mid-planning. I’d much prefer to see a cohesive set of colors than something more traditionally spring that looks disjointed.

Stick with the colors you want! We used bright yellow and dark gray for a NYE wedding. I was concerned about the time of year and almost changed, but I’m glad I stuck with my original colors.

Colors don’t matter witht the season…I’m having red, white, and black accents with a birch tree theme (a nod to my late grandmother and I’s favorite tree 🙂 )

Your colors and theme are not so specific that they can’t be used anytime, anywhere.

@DaphneDescends: I think your colors sound awesome. It’s not going to matter in all honesty. I’m having an October wedding and my colors are soft ivory, blush pink and silver with a pop of cobalt blue. Do the colors your heart is set on it’s your wedding.

Thank you guys! My friend is an aspiring fashion designer, so maybe I shoud have realized his opinion would be a bit hyper-sensitive since he’s so in to colors and seasons and all of that, but I was still a little disheartened to hear it because it’s not something I had considered.
So then I guess now I’m back to DIYing the heck out of my wedding then! Thanks again!

@DaphneDescends: No way! I don’t think that colours SHOULD depict the colour palatte! Your colours sounds lovely
