So FI and I still have a year and a half to go before the big day which leaves us with some time up our sleeves to decide on things. We are however completely stuck on what colors to choose.
We are getting married in June 2014 which in Australia is the first month of winter (being from QLD however our winters aren’t very extreme) but a lot of the color ideas we like seem very spring or summerish.
Did you pick your colors and themes based on the season and if so what choices did you make?

Kind of.. I wanted a dark color but we’re getting married in May. I’d always wanted navy but my brother’s wedding was half Air Force mess dress. FI and I decided on a dark purple (AA eggplant). We decided on a formal wedding to make it feel appropriate and will be bringing it back into ‘spring’ with a palette of peach, coral, ivory, and lavender.

@jpalm13: I recently saw an inspiration board which had powder blue and eggplant,it looked gorgeous being paired with such a lighter color

Season had no influence on my colors. We are having a fall wedding (around here fall screams oranges, golds, browns, reds, yellows) and we are doing red, black, and white. I really don’t like fall colors other than reds so there was no way I was going to do that. Even if my wedding was in the spring I would still do my colors because the only other color scheme I really like is pastel pink and white and I didn’t want my FI to have to be surrounded by pink lol
Go with the colors you like and don’t worry about it “not matching the season” 🙂

I used a lot of dark colors… browns, dark greens, with a little white and tan. I kept it very earthy but that was not what everyone thought a first weekend of summer wedding should look like. I had a lot of people tell me to add something lighter or another color to brighten it up but I’m not a bright person I like dark colors and I didn’t let the season influence me. My theme was Midsummer Nights Dream though so in a way I did stay with colors to match the season using forest tones… but I saw so many Midsummer Nights Dream weddings where they did lighten it up with purple or pink but I kept it dark and I was so happy I did. =)

@MaddylovesJay: My color choices influenced the date of our wedding. I found a picture of a bouquet that I absolutely fell in love with and knew that I would have to get married in the fall.

Nope. Not at all. I got married in the fall, but I pretty much dislike fall colors. I was more concerned with my tastes in general and what would flow with the venue. I got married at an aquarium and chose teal and silver as my colors. They worked perfectly.

It sort of did with mine. I was probably going with these whether it was spring or fall. I will be getting married in May and my colors are gold and pink. The flowers had a lot to do with it though.

Nope. I picked colors based on what looked good in the venue.

- Wedding: November 2012 - Oak Tree Manor
We got married in November, a couple weeks before Thanksgiving here – when most people would probably expect a fall-themed wedding with browns, yellows, greens, etc. – but I’m really not a big fan of fall colors. We chose a soft, romantic color palette – blush, ivory, gold, champagne, sage green – and it turned out beautifully. No one commented about the season.

I always wanted a fun and colorful scheme, but it didn’t hurt that our wedding will be in the summer.

The season had no effect on my colors/theme of any kind. Long Loooooong before we had even gotten engaged, I let FI pick the wedding colors. He chose red, black, Ivory and white. He said those were his favorite colors. So I stuck with them and the theme that I always wanted fit in perfectly with those colors. I love it. I am getting married in the spring (April) and most people are saying that our colors are too dark for the season. I don’t care about that, as long as it’s pretty and properly executed, popular season colors mean nothing.
