- Wedding: April 2014
Hi all! So this is something that fiance and I are stuck on.
His favorite color is red. Mine is purple, though I don’t care much about using it (I actually find purple to be overdone in weddings, at least in my family). We originally were going to go with red and black for our colors.. but that was when we were planning a local, regular church wedding.
Now, thanks to family drama, we’ve decided to do our wedding how WE want. My dream wedding has always, always been to get married on a beach in St. Augustine (my favorite city) in a small ceremony with a tiny guest list. And he is totally cool with this. We originally decided against it because I didn’t want to make my family travel (his family will have to travel either way). I probably still won’t limit the guest list because I don’t want to hurt feelings, but I expect a lot of people won’t come.
So now we are stuck on colors. Red and black just don’t seem like they would work with a beach! 🙂 He wants to do red and purple.. not pastels or anything, bright red and purple. I just don’t see it. Neither one of us wants pastels, we’d like some bright, tropical colors. I want to use red because he’s so attached to it, so what goes well with it?
ETA: Since changing our plans, we chose to downsize our wedding party (it’s still way early so nobody had been asked yet ha). My best friend as maid of honor, plus my daughter as “Keeper of the Rings” (combo flower girl/ring bearer but more grown up, she’s 11) and a best man. The maid of honor wants to wear red too, so I definitely want to keep that color for that reason as well. She’ll be picking out her own dress and all that, I don’t really care what she wears.
