So I’m not exactly sure where to put this post, so I stuck it under parties because it mostly pertains to my co-ed bridal shower that I will eventually have.
My FI and I have decided on using blush and a yellowish-green for our wedding colors, however, I really like the color combo of yellow and gray together. FI doesn’t like yellow, so I scratched that from the wedding colors but what if I used those colors for our shower. I’m almost positive my FI would agree to it, but I was just wondering if it would be weird to have a different set of colors at your shower than what you have at your wedding. And by colors I mean coordinated decor and the such.
Did any of you have different colors for you shower than your wedding? What are your ideas on the matter. Do you really think it would make that big of a deal? Do you think it would confuse guests, and if so, would that be a bad thing? Just looking for someone to talk to about this and bounce ideas off of. Thanks Bees!

It’s totally fine to have different colors at the shower and the wedding.
My shower was super girly – pink, yellow, lots of flowers, etc.
My wedding was black, white, and red, vintage-y, lots of feathers and crystals.

@GeekChic: Yay! I was a little worried. It sounded like a great idea in my head, being able to incorporate the two sets of colors that I really loved, but then I was afraid it might not be a good idea, but since you said what you did I feel great. Your color options are as varied as mine are, and it’s refreshing. I think it helps to not make things boring?

My shower colors matched our wedding colors, but that’s because my hostesses chose to do so. I don’t think it needs to match, I’ve been to few where the colors are different.

@mintblush: My cousin just recently had her shower and she used the colors wedding colors at her shower, which I thought wsa sort of semi manditory, but I realized I didn’t like how much it was over done and going to be over done (probably) at the wedding. I agree now that I think two sets of colors will be okay

@SeeingDaisies: i picked my wedding colors as i am planning that.
my MOH and bridesmaids are planning my shower. i have no idea any of the details, not even the date.
but the two parties do not need to coordinate at all.
the wedding could be black and red and the shower could be yellow and green.

@SeeingDaisies: When I hosted my sister’s bridal shower, I used different colours…the shower was blue and white, with a “lace, ribbon and bows” theme, and her wedding colours were black, white and red. I’ve seen brides use their wedding colours for their shower, but personally, I feel that this takes away from being “wowed” when you see those colours at the wedding

Yeah, I think I have decided to do different colors for the two.
