Has anyone had decoration success without really having a color scheme? I’m liking chill, muted colors for a relaxing feel… Nothing complicated, just whatever looks good with natural tones! But so far, saying I don’t really have a color scheme has gotten me looks like I have two heads!! hahah
Also interested in y’alls color palletes… Did you base yours more on the venue or season or personal preference?

@CarolF: We dont have a scheme really, just “fall”. Our venue is rustic/woodsy so we want to match the venue. And its in November so just nothing that would clash. Same with you… muted, relaxed… and I really do not like flowers so were doing more candles

Same with us, we don’t really have a color scheme, we’re just going for a rustic feel. So I guess you could say our color scheme is wood, burlap, and lace, with touches of various pastels here and there. Our venue is a barn, so I think it’ll work out perfectly! I don’t have any pics of the completed look yet, but I will in 38 days!!

No strict color scheme here either! I want everything to look good and go well together but I spent a lot of time thinking about it and I just can’t bring myself to limit everything to 2 or 3 colors.

- Wedding: November 2013 - St. Augustine Beach, FL
We went with turquoise and lime green for our beach wedding. We first agreed on using green since it’s both of our’s favorite color. Then we looked at beachy shades of green (lime won) and bright accent colors (hot pink, neon orange, lemon yellow, or bright blue.) Finally we settled on turquoise for the accent; I am not a fan of dressing men in pink and orange is rarely flattering on anyone.

We fell into a color scheme. The venue is really really white with accents of lavender and rose. I HATE warm colors like red, orange and yellow (I’m a redhead), as does FI. So that left us with cool colors – couldn’t have BM’s in blue as my BFF did that and would see it as copying. Couldn’t have them in green as we’re having pics taken in a garden. So purple it was! So yes, we’re sticking to,certain colors, but kind of by accident 🙂

For the longest time, I had no idea what I wanted our color scheme to be. In the beginning stages of planning, everyone was asking and I had no idea. I figured I woulc just choose colors for things as it came up. After a few weeks of planning (and deciding on a pale yellow BM dresses) a color scheme naturally evolved for me. We are using Yellow, Peach, Pink and Gold.

No color scheme for us! And I totally understand how you feel with the weird looks. It was like I told people I was marrying myself DX

We dont really have a colour scheme, we’ve just got what we like in colours that go but, I guess has slowly merged into a colour scheme.
My dress is purple and the BMS have grey dresses. The groomsmen have grey ties etc.
My centrepieces are purple and white (purple plate things with mirror plates and tall vases with feathers) along with bronze and clear scatter crystals and black table clothes.
My bouquet is white and my girls have purple with diamantes and each have a key /cog on the handles, the button wholes are also purple and white with cogs/keys.
All what we want which goes.

I might just ask to have this replicated… I’ve found that I’m way more interested in textures than colors! haha!

Our colors are cherry red and mint green. Everyone always thinks we chose the because red and green are Christmas colors but we chose them because we want a retro 50s type vibe and those colors seemed most appropriate for the time period.
