    Blue is a super common color with a TON of variations, keep it.

    @Futurecoacheswife:  I had a similar issue with my brother. My Pinterest has been full of purple and grey wedding ideas for years because it’s a nice color combo. Brother’s boyfriend proposed two weeks before mine. Guess what my brother’s favorite colors are…

    I had thought having the same colors might be nice so that we could save money, but he said something to my mom about changing his colors because he wanted a unique wedding. I decided to change mine instead because purple is his favorite color, not mine. I’m going with navy & green instead.

    Basically I think the moral of my story is that if blue is your favorite color and you really, really want it, pick it. If she has a problem with it, she’ll probably say something.

    No one remembers the wedding colors but the bride. Especially when there’s 7 months between weddings.

    My sister and I both had blue for our wedding colors her second was yellow and mine was purple. Her blue was more of a sky light blue and mine was more of a dull blues and peacocks. It worked out fine. We didn’t care.

    DH’s best man also got married right after and they had blue and orange….

    Blue is a good color 😉

    @Futurecoacheswife:  If you did everything in blue and white I think that could be like the most stunning thing ever- with maybe black or silver since you’ll need like tux colors and maybe some bling? I dunno. But just doing all blue could be wonderful!

    @Futurecoacheswife:  I wouldn’t even really say anything to her about it… maybe even if she has something she is using say OMG I love that can I buy it from you and use it at my wedding too?…

    I’m a kiss ass tho

    @Futurecoacheswife:  You don’t need your FSIL’s permission to make decisions about your wedding. She has no right to get offended and you shouldn’t feel like you have to sacrifice anything you want to avoid incurring her wrath. Your wedding is just as important as FSIL’s and just because it’s smaller doesn’t mean it’s secondary. 

    Do you have any reason to believe that your FSIL will mind about the blue? Is she selfish like that or are you just worried?

    I voted no, you should stick with your plans. I recently attended two weddings from the same circle of friends and they both used green and purple which are also our wedding colours. But we all used different shades and used them for different types of decorations etc so you’d hardly notice.

    You know your future SIL. Is she the type of person to be bothered by something like this? If you think there’s a chance it would cause issues it might be worth sounding her out, but it sounds like your respective weddings will be very different affairs and having a similar colour won’t be obvious.
