    Are you planning on having them in suits or tuxes? I think navy dresses paired with khaki suits would be really nice.

    Depends on the shades. With the deep blue and feminine pink/cream colors, I wouldn’t make the association at all.

    I can totally understand where you’re coming from though; my high school’s colors are blue and gold (and I was in marching band), so whenever I see that popular bright blue/white/yellow combination in design, weddings, or elsewhere, my first thought is “GO! BIG! BLUE!” The school song starts running through my head, I have flashbacks of clinging desperately to Hot Hands and avoiding spit from the trombone players…yeah. *shudders* An understandable worry, I think. But you don’t have anything to be worried about with your color combo.

    ohhhh i think you’re palette sounds gorgeous!  don’t skip on the gold, it will add a nice touch of decadence to an already elegant palette 🙂  besides, if gold was one of your high school colors, wasn’t it more of a bright goldenrod yellow, not actual metallic gold?  nobody will make the connection i’m sure.

    Okay, you’ve been out of school for six years, right?  Do you really think anyone will notice?  I sure wouldn’t! My high school colors were gold and blue too (yay Catholic school) and I totally forgot up until you mentioned it–and I’m using blue and gold as my wedding colors as well! Never occurred to me, and we actually did use metallic gold, not goldenrod, quite a bit.

    • Wedding: April 2011 - Anthony’s Fine Dining

    Our wedding colors are pool and clover, and my high school colors were blue and green!  I hadn’t even thought about that.  I just chose them because it looked good with the venue and the time of year.  Kinda funny now that I think about it…especially considering that my Fiance went to the rival high school…haha

    The most attracting colors for April are soft pastels. Usually blue, pink, yellow, soft green, and purple. Summer is bold colors as in red, deep/navy blue, lime green, yellow, and creame. Back into the fall season is easier to think of leaves. Mocha, burnt orange, burgundy, forrest green, and the gold color. The winter is all to common for the reddest of reds and the bluest of blues with silver or platinum. I think the blue with the pink and cream will be nice but the main color has to be complimented by all your other colors.

    • Wedding: September 2010

    If it makes you feel any better my brother married a girl who went to the same high school- colors were black/red/white. They chose the same for their wedding… but then again so did my cousin who got married 5 months before.

    Do what you want! It’s your day! :0)

    Personally, just figure out where the venue will be first, and then worry about your colors… And most colors, many brides use no matter what time of year – so do what you like.
