and basically I’ve been so confused but today I think I’ve narrowed down what colors I like, and they are in this picture – the yellow, the pinks, the blue – NOT the words NOT the woman.
I show fiance just now, and he is sitting down eating dinner, so I thought it would be fine to show him. He’s like I don’t know, it looks devilish to me. I’m like what? He goes, the black, I’m like what do you mean? I just like the colors, and he FREAKS out saying he just wants to relax and just came home from work.
I mean, what the hell. I just said fine, it’s from a DIOR ad, it’s not a freaking devil picture. I walked away and went to our room.

Ooh, I love the colors! I actually like the whole picture (but I’m weird that way)!

I like the whole picture too. I’ve been thinking about it all day and looking at it from time to time – than he comes home and says it looks like a devil picture!

Well — are you sure he didn’t mean it looks "devilish" as in, suggestive or mischevious? Because the model definitely does! It just sounds like he didn’t know what to say and wasn’t expecting to have to give feedback on a color scheme when he walked in the door.

I like the colors too!
Is your fiancé normally interested in aesthetics things like color palettes and fashion? Even if he’s the kind of guy who will help his fiancée pick the color palette (mine gave me free range with colors – he didn’t really care either way), he was probably just honestly tired after work. I’d give him a few hours to relax, and then talk about it again later.

First, regular boys will probably not get the allure of fashion and couture — don’t hold it against him! I also think that if he wasn’t sure what you wanted feedback on, he probably just gave his first impression, which was more about the model and styling than it may have been about the color scheme.
I know my FI really hates being bombarded with stuff right after work — he’s the kind of guy who needs some time and space to decompress and relax, so I suggest giving him a few hours and then smoothing it over then.

Even the best men don’t do weddings and fashion as soon as they get home from work. They also don’t do pink usually. Relax and give him some time to decompress before you ask him about wedding stuff and I think you’ll get a better reaction.

When we were looking at invitation styles, I pointed out one that had a really ugly pattern on one side, but I mentioned that I liked the shape of the invite and the fact that there was a pattern–stressing that I did not want funny little bamboo rings on our invites. My fiance’s response: I don’t really like that bamboo stuff, and I thought we wanted BLUE, not brown."
Some boys just can’t extrapolate the same way we can…
If you are set on the colors and want to see what he thinks, try making a color palate. I made one on Colourlovers.com that I was pretty happy with.
