How close together are your weddings?

Unless they are back to back, I don’t think you need to change your color.

So many people use similar colors. Everything else in the wedding will be different, it doesn’t matter if you have similar color schemes.

What are your other colors? I really don’t think it’s a big deal… purple is a lovely color and matches lots of other colors without looking “the same” each time!

no need.  two separate weddings.  they will be at two different locations with two different groups of people and have completely different feels.

There are so many different shades of purple…even if you both end up having purple as your wedding color, they could be completely different shades.

@mocha_luv: If your weddings are a year apart, no one is going to remember that the colors were the same.

Stay with the color scheme you love. The only people who notice will probably be you and her.

plus, even if you use the same shade, you can go in so many different directions.  eggplant and gold looks different from eggplant and sky blue or eggplant and lime green, for example.  I would say that unless your weddings were back-to-back weeks and you had the EXACT same color palette, it’s a non-issue.

And, maybe it’s worthwhile to be a bit tighter-lipped with your plans if you fear this could become a repetitive issue with you two having strikingly similar choices 😉

If you’re getting married this august, and the weddings are a year apart, then her wedding would be after yours – so it would be at HER wedding that they would feel like they’ve already been!

No worries, from my perspective. Since you get married first, you can do whatever you want and not worry about what she’s planning (although stealing her ideas wouldn’t be very nice, haha).

Use whatever color YOU want to use.  Like PPs have said, it’ll probably look really different.  If she kinda killed your love for purple, go with something else.

My cousin stole my color, slower, and date so ours is a month a part now and let me tell you, I am NOT changing anything. It is my wedding and even if the colors are the same, everything else will be so different! Nobody will think about it. And if anything they will think she copied you. (and that is IF they think anything at all). It wont be the same guest list either. Forget about it. Keep your color and LOVE IT!

It won’t matter. Especially if they are a year apart. Let it go. 🙂
