Hi Bees! What are everyone’s colors! I’ve been having a heck of a time – it seems like I change my mind every day. I would love to have a fuschia wedding, but not sure it would really suit the venue and the season. I’m getting married at a mountain lodge in an outdoor ceremony with lots of pine trees around. By September 24th, it will hopefully be about 70 degrees (crossing fingers), but will definitely have that fall feeling in the air, with some leaves just starting to change.
So, instead of bright pink, I feel myself leaning toward a mountainy/wildflower purple wedding – flowers in various shades of purple ranging from deep purple to violet, with white accents, and other woodsy decorations.
The problem is, I don’t really like any of the Purple dresses I’ve seen. So I’m leaning toward something almost grayish. I like this Bill Levkoff bridesmaid dress in Sangria or Victorian Lilac: http://www.billlevkoff.com/style/bridesmaid-dress/560
With flowers like this:
What are your colors?

I’m doing purple and brown! I kind of questioned the same thing as you but i feel that pulling in brown tones and a range of purple i can pull it off. I went with alfred angelo’s violet and their chocolate brown. looking online its SO not a fall color, but paired with brown and in person its beautiful. If you have a botique near you that carries alfred angelo i’d definately reccomend you check it out!

@razzzzzz I love the first bouquet, I think it would look fabulous with a grayish purple color dress! My colors are going to be mocha, black, and white with fall colored flowers. This is my inspiration picture: However my bouquet will look more like this:

Our colors are going to be ivory, champagne and silver. Originally we wanted a slate gray but mom veto’d it so we switched to silver.

I’m doing white and yellow, with purple accents. The bridesmaids dresses will be purple and our main flowers will be sunflowers. My mom’s going to sew runners out of this fabric, and we’ll have milk glass vases with sunflowers!

We are doing eggplant and light gold, with a burnt orange accent. Alfred Angelo has a lot of dresses and a ton of colors…but go with what makes you happy! Who cares if it’s in season?
