We didn’t choose colors that have to do with season, the seasons here can be very unpredictable – It can be 40 degrees and snowing to 90 degrees and sunny on halloween here. Fall colors could look out of place even though they are in season.

We just went with our favorite colors. Pink for me, Black for FH and we threw in white to bring it all together.

We both like “cool” colors – greens, blues, purples. My BFF had blue Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses so blue was out. We wanted most of our pictures taken in our venue’s gorgeous garden, so green was out. Purple it was!!!

Tanleggedjuliet: Most colors can be used at any time during the year depending on what you pair it with and in what quantity each color is used.

There are websites that can help you choose your color palette;

http://www.theperfectpalette.com    scroll down on the right, choose one of your favorite colors, then see all the palettes they have developed using that color


http://design-seeds.com/   click on palette search, then you have two choices-

                    you can search by theme

feathered palette

or search by color value- play around with the tool till you get one color you want to use, then click, Go Get It

Didn’t really think about season at all! I picked my favorite color, asked Fiance what colors he would want, and we ended up with two main colors. Then I just picked some neutrals to go with. We ended up with a teal, lime green, ivory, and a light charcoal grey. BMS will be in the teal, Groomsmen in grey suits with lime accents (tie/bowtie). Flowers will have a ton of greenery and lots of ivory blooms.

Peach would be beautiful in the winter! You could do peach, grey, white, silver, etc and make it really wintery elegant feeling.

I agree with Julies1949; it’s all about what color you pair it with. The last color palette she posted is a perfect example because peach is there, but it’s complimented by a very rich plum and burnt orange. You should definitely stick with peach/coral since that’s your favorite color, and just be creative about how you can make it “fit” the season.

I kinda picked them and he okayed them. I picked the color of our college, purple, because we met there. Grey was because it’s neutral and went with it. I was hoping FH would wear a grey suit, but no cigar. And then I choose a bright blue as an accent because I wanted something fun and summery that went with our lovebird theme. Baby blue was too muted.

Since my wedding is 12/27 – I did red, green and silver for Christmas. I think I would have loved either a patriotic red, white and blue — Jewel tones: Lime, Turq, Pink and Purple — or black and white damask or a fall palate (love pumpkins!). I thought Damask was too formal for the type of small wedding I wanted. Patriotic on that date seemed odd (as did the Jewel tones). So, I let the season dictate the theme.

We didn’t even choose colors. Bright, bold, and colorful is our pallette 🙂

We thought about the season when considering colors and ended up doing deep orange, light orange and cobalt blue; this way, we would still have a somewhat “autumn” color palette but without beating people over the head since it would be the end of September.

Tanleggedjuliet:  I struggled with picking colors too. Im getting married in february, so I knew I wanted pink blush tones, but I wasn’t sure what to pair them with. Then when I got the dress, which had some gold, I decided to add gold tones to the blush… So I guess it was the dress that made everything else fall into place:)
