I just went with my favorites. Greens and purples and blues. Told my florist to make something nice out of it.

I think those colours go well together, very summer-y!

We chose our colours based on his favourite colour (blue) and my favourite colour (purple), very easy and they will go well together I think 🙂

We considered the season (summer), considered the themes we like (vintage, outdoors, a little bit rustic), and went with what looked nice together. We’re going with a lavender and sage green palette, and also incorporating lavender and sage smells in our flowers and across the venue so that those scents always remind us of our wedding day.

tiredgrey:  Welcome 🙂 I agree, I think those are very summery colors! 

We chose our colors based on a photo of a floral arrangement which we loved and which happened to contain our favorite colors – we used Photoshop (my FI is a graphic designer) to match the colors! We’re doing pale yellow, lavender, and blush pink.

tiredgrey:  Mainly because they are my favorite colors. I have tried to stay a little lighter because of the venue, but other than that, no other reason.

I chose fall colors to go with my fall/rustic theme. I decided to narrow the colors down to 3 instead of all the fall colors… Gold, brown, eggplant, burgundy, rust etc. 

We chose orange and gray my two favorite colors in fall. I wanted more of a rust orange or pumpkin orange, but the colors at David’s Bridal to choose from we’re more red than orange or a tangerine orange. I chose tangerine and its actually been coming together nicely.

So pewter gray, tangerine orange and strawberry red.

tiredgrey: Go with what you like and what makes you smile when looking and working with it. I liked a few colour combos but went with what I fell in love with first and was a colour I had loved and wanted in my wedding since being at uni. I liked the idea of an aqua and red kitchen, so googled it one day and up came an I,age for wedding invitations in these colours and it hit me and I wasn’t even engaged yet. As we had a Summer wedding aqua was the doMinangkabau colour.

well, I always imagined my wedding as mint/blush/gold tones but that’s not how it ended up, I fell in love with a pale blue gown and my MOH was not so keen on wearing blush/pink as she is very pale skinned so I went off of blush/mint/gold idea and started thinking what colours would go my dress so the bridemaids dresses are going to be royal blue so my colour scheme ended up being royal blue, sky blue and white as an accent colour.

I couldn’t pin colours down for ages. Then we picked the venue – a converted barn with a high valted ceiling. It was such a blank canvas that I knew I had free reign with colours. Then I picked my dress. We held lots of different BM dresses next to it and a dusty pink one really brought out the oyster underlay of my dress. It was lovely. I then spent lots of time on Pinterest searching for dusty pink, rustic, vintage weddings. I got some great ideas and spoke to an amazing florist who seemed to be able to translate what I was saying into beautiful flowers and centrepieces. I don’t think you HAVE to pick colours, but once I had my colours picked out (dusty pink, ivory, browns) it was a lot easier deciding on the cake, venue decor, flowers etc

tiredgrey:  we sat down one night together and discussed it. We considered the season (spring) and both of our favorite colors are blue so we opted for light blue, beige & silver which works perfect for our beach themed wedding 🙂
