So, my wedding colors aren’t so strict as to nail it down to two colors. I don’t really like the idea of having “obvious” wedding colors. It reminds me of sorority rush (not that I didn’t enjoy it). Anyways, I am wearing an a-line off white gown, the bridesmaids are in navy floor length chiffon, and the groomsmen are well…. grey suit (if only I could find a non-retro variety for rental) or black tux.
The dilemma is this. The only colors that would carry through to both would be navy, off white, and silver, would it be okay to have yellow flowers at the ceremony and purple at the reception? I think the yellow would make the bridal party look more cheerful. But the reception hall has off white tablecloths, and I think the purple is nice. I’m not going to try to mix them together. But would this be weird?
I like the ones attached.

I think if you bring touches of the other color into each part of the day it could work. For example, a purple ribbon tying the bouquet of yellow flowers together or the table numbers incorporating yellow into it. Does that sound at all appealing? I was having the same dilemma with mine. I ended up with a color “family,” haha.

I LOVE that idea and the color scheme. I really think it will look great. “wedding colors’ remind me of my high school prom-unsophisticated and dated. no thank you.

I have a color family too. I went to Home Depot and went to the Martha Stewart paint chip section. Pick your most prominent colors and then fill in the rest. Her paint chips are helpful in that they have icons in the corners to help you put the color scheme together (stars, flowers, leaves).

for sure- and things don’t need to be matchy-matchy! Have you ever seen monica’s wedding on Friends? Her Bridesmaid or Best Man totally don’t match her and her flowers are roses and the Bridesmaid or Best Man have callas. It is all non matchy!

Ahh, love Friends. Phoebe’s wedding was my favorite though. Think I am definitely going to do the purple flowers at the reception. I think I will choose two different floral colors. Thanks for the thoughts!

Purple and yellow are complimentary, so they absolutely go! And blue/purple or blue/yellow look great as well, I think this is an awesome color scheme! We’re doing blue/purple with hints of teal and green, but my mom keeps trying to throw yellow in there too 😛

i think if you add just a touch of purple to the yellow and vice versa things will come out looking really terrific and well put together…these colors go well together…
