Ours was a deep red as well, with hints of blue and amber around the room. We loved that red color (it was a mutual decision) and blue is DH’s favorite color. Amber came with the venue, so we ran with it.

I focused the wedding around my favorite color… green! Since I knew I wanted green and it was a theater venue I went with a forest like color scheme and had brown, green, white and gold.

Fiance loves Blue, and I wanted a girly color and we both wanted something modern, so we went with navy blue and pale yellow, with accents of gray

Purple has been my favorite color since birth. I almost left the house yesterday in purple running shorts and a purple sweater before I came to my senses. No question what the main color will be!

I love green and he loves slate blue.  I love the crispness of black and white so that’s how we got our four colors ๐Ÿ™‚

We went with black and ivory — We also wanted to add a winter color so we added cobalt blue. And we needed to include metallics (jewelry, etc) so we chose both silver and gold. Were going for a classy crisp winter chic!

Mine are also going to be blues and purples. I’m thinking more royal tones. Also a fun little fact, amethyst and blue topaz are my two bridesmaids birthstones, so it matches. I’ll be getting them birthstone necklaces to wear.

I wanted colors that were bright and reminded me of spring.  Other than that I had no idea so I started looking at pictures of flowers.  All I knew was absolutely no pink.  I found a bouquet with really pretty blue and purple flowers and fell in love.  That picture pretty much decided the colors for my wedding.  I started looking for other inspiration pictures that match those flowers.

I was with my husband..at a random store just looking at random things..and I saw these really pretty vases and I had to have one.  And he asked me, “Do you want these for the wedding?”  And I thought they’d be perfect..so they came in 3 different colors.  Pink, blue, and green..and that’s how we chose our’s.  It was the first things we bought for the wedding, I was worried they wouldn’t look good together..but they turned out nice.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I wanted deep jewel tones since our wedding was in MN winter, but also something cheery and bright so that winter didn’t win. I chose my favorite (teal), he chose his favorite (blue), and then I went to DB and bought 3 complimentary color swatches I liked and let him select the accent color- purple, for the Vikings :-p Blehk! Thankfully I love peacocks, and I did well keeping all yellow accents OUT of our wedding. Go Pack ๐Ÿ˜‰

Truthfully, my bridesmaids were larger ladies (size 20 an 30) so whatever dresses I could find in this size in whatever colour (found a lovely dark purple) was exactly where I was going with my colour scheme.  It worked out great and we had a purple and silver theme.
