    @sariibear:  STOP RIGHT THERE!

    If you love black and gold, go for it! To me sounds nice and elegant!

    @sariibear:  I was having this issue too until I decided to get FI’s input.  I wanted purple and silver.  He HATES purple so that put an end to that.   LOL

    We are now doing royal blue, silver and black.  We picked the colors together and even though blue is not one of my favorite colors the royal blue is an ok option that I am starting to really love!

    What are his thoughts, if any?

    @sariibear:  i’m getting married in a barn (how original huh!) in the fall! I refused to do “fall colors” because it’s a fall wedding. Instead, the girls are wearing “linen and mocha” and all of my stuff if very muted, light colors. Light brown, moss, rose, peach, beige, ivory. There isn’t a theme other than “Stuff Jackie Likes” – if thats a theme? It’s thing I love, and if it doesn’t all come togehter, then whatever!

    You can always add the hint of plum without making it a “main color”. Plum is a very fall color if that’s something you want to incorporate more of a fall style. Ask your FI what he thinks, he might surprise you, mine sure did. He was the one who insisted on our colors lol

    My colors were blush, black, cream and gold. I got married in October and didn’t use fall colors at all.

    I voted for black/gold/plum. I don’t think just black and gold would be too NYE but I think adding the plum would be divine!

    @MrsConnolly2bee:  Seriously sounds like me. I’m doing a bunch of colours/themes I like. 

    It’s your day, do what you feel you will still like in 20 years!

    I almost want to go with your first choice, as you first chose those colors for a reason, but I do agree with doing what you love.

    Maybe take a step back and figure out other aspects of the wedding first.. like your dress.

    Originally, my colors were going to be ivory, black with accents of pink, and with quite a bit of bling. It all changed once I found my VERY lace and pearl endeared gown… my dress is STARK white and I couldn’t see me sitting at a table making my tableclothes looking almost YELLOW [the ivory tablecloths i bought were super dark]. So I changed from ivory to white.. now the colors are white, black with accents of pink and LOTS of pearls!

    I say go with your original choice/your gut. Don’t over analyze and over think it too much or you will stress yourself out.

    @LoveLaceandWine:  Nothing makes sense, but if you walk around our reception venue is filled, every corner has SOMETHING – antiques galore! Save the dates are modern and fun – and grey and orange. Our invites are fall, brown with trees and leaves falling. Favors are coffee beans “the perfect blend” (my FI is obsessed w/coffee) – escort cards are honey sticks “love is SWEET, find your SEAT!” (because i’m a honey freak) – and these are our centerpieces with burlap table runners!  Table numbers are little frames we got @ the craft store that we spray painted ivory and painted the back black for a “chalkboard” look! Card “box” is an old (30lb) antique milk jug we spraypainted copper! I love everything I’ve done!

    If I had an idea, i went with it. I don’t even care. It will all come together with our venue. I love it. He loves it. My sister doesn’t love it. Don’t care 🙂
