Hi March 2011 Brides! Congrats to all:) I just got engaged Oct 18th 2010 and we are getting married March 4th 2011! I can’t wait…and won’t have to long since it will sneek up on me fast! Oh well, I like being busy! This brings me to my delema though, I feel like I cannot plan much without having a color scheme but I cannot decide on one. I am wondering what other march brides are doing. I should mention that I am a Minnesota Bride and we are getting married at a ski resort, in MN. and also that early march in MN is still very much winter…so hopefully we will have lots of snow. I like the idea of doing white, silver and emerald for our colors, but I’m not sure if these are appropriate colors for the time of year, venue etc.. I also want our decor to be “northwoodsy”. Anyways, What colors are other bees using? I could really use some inspiration!

I’m in Ohio, so we have no clue what the weather will be like. We’re doing navy blue, white, and shades of green.
I think the emerald would be great for a northwoodsy feel. Just be careful b/c green with silver can look kind of christmasy.

March is South Carolina is highly unpredictable…. it could be 70 or it could be snowing (I’m hoping and praying for 70 haha). I’m doing gray and yellow. Kind of a winter meets spring sort of thing 🙂

That sounds great! I say do whatever color scheme YOU want to do. We’re doing royal purple and a bright appley green. When my sister heard she said – that sounds like a dragon or if you use gold too – Mardi Gras! And then Fiance said – huh purple and green, like the Joker?!? Oh brother! They will just have to be wowed on the day and see it all together.
Maybe if you want a more northwoodsy feel the green you go with could have more hunter green tones rather than emerald? It might even be awesome to have some wood accents like manzanita branches or thin birch menus!

Congrats! I think you can definitely still do a wintery theme since there’s still snow in March up there! Either way, it’s your choice. My colors are navy and blush pink. I don’t know if it’s particularly springy but I didn’t really think that way when I thought of colors.

I’m getting married in Houston but I’m not doing spring-y colors. Last year it snowed in the last week of February so you never really know! My colors are dark grey and light pink. I’m using candelabras and low floral arrangements as centerpieces. It’s going to be (hopefully!) really elegant looking!

white, silver and emerald sounds very pretty and season appropriate. I think you can make any palette work in any season though.
