I said “how about black and silver?”

he said “can we throw in some purple?  I like purple.”

I said “sure”.

and that was that

We chose our colors together and so far we’ve agreed about everything wedding related.

Yup. He wants gray/silver, navy, or forest green. And not all, but at least one.

It’s his day too, he should absolutely have an opinion.

I think it’s really sweet that he cares! I originally wanted a navy & pink wedding, which my Fiance just agreed with. When I randomly changed my mind to yellow & gray (&white), he thought it was “ugly.” So I made a pinterest inspiration board of all yellow and gray weddings and showed him what it could look like. That changed his mind. Obviously, I would never plan a wedding that he wouldn’t find appealing. It’s OUR wedding, not mine (as much as I may want to be in control of everything!)

Have you showed him potential clothing, flowers, tables, etc.? Ultimately, he does need to be on board, but I’m not against a little bit of promotional work to get him to agree to what you really want!!!

My fiance has been a lot more involved in the wedding planning process than I ever thought he would want to be.  I originally wanted blush pink dresses and he didn’t like that idea whatsoever (didn’t want his groomsmen to have to wear pink vests/ties).  I think it’s kind of sweet that he wants to be involved, although it can be ever-so frustrating at times as well! 🙂

I asked him if he would be okay with red/black/silver.  He said “Sounds good to me.  I didn’t even know weddings were supposed to have colors.”  Le sigh.  He thinks his only job is to show up and look good.  The only thing he’s been very interested in so far has been food and cake.  Go figure.

my Fiance has been extremely involved with everyone, its amazing him being the one off...but i almost regret it.  i have my vision and how i want things, and i am always going on my decision or telling him that wouldnt work.  

hey – he didn`t dream about it, i did!

my Fiance helped pick the colors, the bridesmaids dresses. etc..he was very involved! i think you should show him MORE pics..like go on pinterest and show in awesome pink and ivory weddings.. i dont think gray would be horrid with gold if the gold was only an accent.

i thnk if you show him more and are a lil persistant he may give in 🙂

My hubby pretty much chose all the colours!

We are Scottish and the colour of the Tartan he chose was pretty much going to dictate what everyone else wore! But as a comprimise, he chose a nice grey tartan which left me free to choose any colours I wanted!

In the end we went for a rainbow wedding, all different colours that look great next to the grey.

Its a joint decision, you may have dreamed about it your whole life, but you will BOTH spend the rest of your lives remembering it!

My Fiance found a color scheme that he loves. I’m not too big into that so I’m letting him take the lead with that. some guys are just into it. I show him pics and get his feedback on everything…if he’s not too enthusiastic about it then I’ll make the choice but if he is then he can make the decision. It’s an easy way to get them involved.

ya i want to include my FH in all of the planning. so that i know we will have a wedding he will love as much as me. also so that his family doesnt think i made all the plans regardless of his wants. since we r doing a destination it is really important to me that they know he wanted this as much or more than me. from colors all the way to the honeymoon.

The colours you picked sound like they would be really pretty, but the wedding is supposed to reflect both of your tastes! My Fiance doesn’t care too much about wedding colours, but I know that he would kick up a fight if I picked girly colours like pink or purple. And I wouldn’t blame him. I think if your Fiance seriously objects you need to rethink your color scheme. Maybe add a light blue or light green in stead of pink?
