What a coincidence, I’m having the SAME EXACT color theme (minus the green)! We ARE twins lol.

Have you chosen your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses yet? I’ve seen some good ones at White House l Black Market and some are under $100! I’m also having them all wear different styles but have them each wear pink accessories and pink bouquet. Eeek I’m excited!

My sister was a December bride.  We wore navy blue satin tea length Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses with a light blue piping.  She gave us light blue pashminas to have too.  All the flowers were white/cream and light blue.  She added in silver and gold touches everywhere.  She didn’t want it to look Christmasy, but it was very wintery.  To bad it was like 60 degrees on her wedding day! 

I love black Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses.  And WHBM is a great place for black dresses!!

At first I thought the same thing because I didn’t want them to get cold either (even though we live in TX and it’s around 80 degrees in Dec still!). But after asking for their input, they like the idea of knee-lenght dresses and plus this is what my Maid/Matron of Honor said to me, "well, won’t we be cold either way?" lol So I thought, "so true!"

And after seeing them try on floor lenght vs. knee-lenght dresses, I have to agree that they look much more youthful, fun, and vibrant in the knee-lenght ones. When is your wedding? Ours is on the 12th =D

All different shades of purple with silver accents! Bridesmaids will wear floor length dresses, each of a different purple – eggplant, wisteria, lilac, etc. Groomsmen will wear bow-ties with the same theme.

Yay! More December brides!

I am going with blue as my main color, but the bridesmaids will be wearing little black dresses (so classy!).

yay december!

 I’m doing black and white for my colors. I”m leaning toward all white flowers, but there’s still a little part of me that is thinking about going with some fun colors. Haven’t decided yet. My bridesmaids are going to be wearing black tea length dresses…. I’m not sure where from yet. I have found a cute one at Macy’s and Nordstrom, both $99. I’m still looking around though.

We are doing black and silver for the wedding colors and using damask accents in our invites.. for centerpieces we are doing candles and pine cones spraypainted silver.

We are doing a deep red–burgundy but without the purple undertones…call it bordeux I guess; paired with white and trim in hunter green.

  the bms will be wearing the red with strapless dresses and we are getting them white faux fur shawls to wear and their flowers will be white with red accents whereas mine are red with white accents–so we are contrasting, I think it will look good for pictures!

White, white, and more white….. With emerald green and chocolate brown accents. The BMs are picking their own dresses in different shades of emerald green and grooms are wearing chocolate brown suits. I’m thinking on having just tons of white candles on the tables and fresh green garland and wreaths hung all over the place with white bows and white table linens.  

Any ideas on how to pull this off?

worldtrekkerbride-  Im having green and brown as my colors!  Im getting married 12/28 in South Africa so it will be summer there, but I just thought those colors are so earthy and pretty together!  Im wearing an ivory dress so I thought id throw some ivory in there too. 

What flowers are you putting in your bouquet??

soontobewife – Yeah! Someone else thinks green and brown are good for a wedding! I’m having a magnolia bouquet to tie into my Acadiana/Cajun inspired wedding (from south Louisiana). But I’m not sure what flowers to use for the BMs. Do you have any ideas?

A lot of people are telling me to give my Bridesmaid or Best Man a single long stemmed flower.. like a lily.  I think its a pretty good idea so ill probably end up doing that. 

My mom actually came up with my colors and I had to think about it for a few days before agreeing.. now im sooo happy i listened to her because I think its different from everyone else’s wedding colors!
