Our colors are Black, Ivory & Pink.

Originally, when we were choosing colors, we each picked a color, Fi chose black, I chose pink [mainly hot pink, but we have since moved on to all shades of pink].

We both thought that strictly pink & black were very harsh for our rustic-romance wedding [Think LOTS of candles sitting on wooden coasters].

We decided we need a base color, and that’s where ivory came in.

Our guest tables will be ivory with black chair covers & ivory sashes, like this :

The head tables will be black linens with ivory tablecloths & black sashes.

All tables will have pink runners & napkins.

All of our pink colors are basically accents, although, our uplighting will be pink.

@Liss13:  black, white, red and gold. I have to be careful because my colours can end up looking like chinese new years….so I am planning on having gold and red as accents. 

bridesmaids black dresses red bouquets (thats the plan)

flowergirls gold and white (sorta like a gold ombre) tutu skirts

brides (me) gold accessories for ceremony, red for reception


tables , black centrepeice, red napkkins, I havn’t figured out how to add gold yet… but i will

just some examples

We each chose a color too! FH picked purple, I picked teal/turquoise. Bold and fun vibe. Gave the bridesmaids a “wear whatever you want that is tea-length or shorter, and any purple” but asked the to buy matching teal shoes. They’ll carry turquoise parasols. (No flowers.)

Doing paper lanterns in both colors, and putting both colors in our centerpieces (which will be test tubes with colored water and book-page paper flowers.) 

Making origami cranes in both colors

Don’t have any choices about the tableware. Trying to get the inside of the cake to be turquoise. 

HOWEVER we are using black and white as a kind of accent thing – not on their own but black and white patterns are showing up in a few places. (My dress, the paper flowers, my parasol, his outfit, some of our paper cranes.)

Probably sounds kind of weird but so far it’s looking pretty neat.

@Liss13:  I’m also a waiting bee and my favorite color is turquoise and I like purple flowers and I want navy bridesmaids dresses. I also am trying to figure out how to pull it off without it being too peacock-y! If you find some good inspiration and ways to make it work let me know!

We did eggplant purple, fuschia (hot pink) with black and white damask and silver accents. Our theme was classic, elegant with jewel tones. It worked really well. My bridesmaids wore floor length eggplant dresses and carried bouquets of hot pink roses, purple calla lillies and white stephanotis and the groomsmen wore black tuxes with silver/charcoal vests and ties and had purple calla boutineers.

I’m doing purples (all mid-dark tones) and cornflower blue. It is hard to find things in the right shade of blue, so that basic answer is if it comes in cornflower then I have it, otherwise we have it in purple instead…

I’m going with purple, turquoise, moss green, gold and ivory.  Haven’t decided yet where I’m putting what, but I’m putting the bridesmaids in purple for sure.  The ceremony will be at the aquarium, so plenty of aqua/turquoise there!
