Works for me. I had a friend without a color scheme, and it all worked out beautifully for her ๐Ÿ™‚

I think that’s fine! If your venue is beautiful as is, why change it?

You don’t have to get stressed about this – florists do need your direction and they want to make you happy.  I think using just creams is a little bland and you do want some color in the room – your photos will look great and the tables won’t blend and not be noticeable with just one color.  However, you can use stylish centerpieces, like martini glasses with touches of cream, blue, white.  You can even add feathers (which would be most appropriate for your 30’s look) in different shades – say peacock (which picks up the navy) mixed with cream roses and calla lillies.  Here’s some photos.  Good luck!  Lise’

I would pick a color or show your florist something you like. They probably just asked what your theme is because they wanted something to start with so that they could narrow down the thousands of options and show you a couple things that would work. If you don’t want them to do that, I would find something you like and that would fit the space, and tell them you want that or something similar for the centerpieces, bouquets, ect.

Umm… same here!!!  We picked plum colored bridesmaid dresses…. but I am having all white flowers, and my dress has sort of a gold hue to it.  So I guess most things are white and gold….. but we did request purple uplighting in the reception room.  But yeah, we don’t have a THEME or a COLOR SCHEME.  Our florist seemed totally OK with it – I’ve always loved white flowers, and she took the ball and ran with it!

Nope ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t have “colors” either. To each his own obviously, but I think the whole 2-3 colors thing is dated and restricting.

The bridesmaids will be in black, and the rest will be things I like.  No restrictions here, or meltdowns because the shades aren’t right.  I have more important things to do frankly.

I’m in the same boat.  My bridesmaids will be in mismatched black dresses, groomsmen in black pants, white shirts, gray vests, and some sort of black/white/gray/silver tie, and we’re decorating with more neutral colors…. black, white, some tan… and then a lot of white lights, candles, glass and mirror elements.

I’m not too concerned.  =)  I can see it all in my head and it’s gorgeous!

Not crazy! ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t have colors either. We reserved a restaurant that is more gorgeous than any venue I could have decorated and is basically what you said – simply stylish. Every florist and tux person we talk to asks what our colors are and I have to tell them there aren’t any. I’m sure come the time I have to buy a bouquet I’ll walk in and say “yellow works I guess.” ๐Ÿ™‚ Or I’ll just tell them to pick out whatever they like.

I think I like the “lack of color scheme” theme that you chose. I think its classic and crisp! Everything will look really elegant Im sure.

Im not sticking with a color scheme…in fact I joke that my color scheme (if I had to put a name to it) is “LSD tripping”. Because I’m using so many different colors.
