I just wanted soft tones that would match the natural setting of our venue.  Our save-the-dates were ecru with brown font and a soft green dandelion.  Then our invitations were also ecru with brown font, but this time with a mandarin orange poppy.  So, I just used those sorts of colors for the rest of the wedding.  The programs were designed accordingly.  I dislike matching bridesmaid dresses, so the four women in our wedding party wore dresses that were gold, light brown, soft pink, and soft green.  I sent pictures of their dresses, my dress and a googled bouquet that I liked to our florist, and she coordinated the colors accordingly.  And then we bought paper lanterns in similar colors too.

Copper!

We both love Red, so it was going to be red, black, white and gold. But it was hard to find the right shade of red. Often, I find it a tad too dark and solid and harsh on wedding photos.

Then came the invitation. I wanted textured invitations and stumbled upon this beautiful cardstock… in copper! And the rest was history. Copper and gold. Rustic elegance. Done.

Haha, this completely happened to me as well! I was having a devil of a time picking colors and ended up getting a sangria/eggplant-y color bridesmaid dress. I figured I would do a neutral beige and sage green to compliment it. Then I went to my cake tasting…and while we were planning the design of the cake, the cake-lady said “let’s edge the sugar roses in gold…” It was an “a-ha!” moment! Now two months later, sage green is nowhere to be found and gold has taken over!

My Fiance signature color is orange, there was never a doubt what our color would be…different shades of orange popping up everywhere.

We had originally decided on purple and beige.. Now we cant decided between coral (Orange/pinks too) or turquoise. (We have also changed from a wedding on my parents dairy farm to a Destination Wedding in Cuba)

@MsMindle:  

@jpalm13:  

Thanks, ladies! I love textures. If I can’t get textured prints, I have to have textured cardstock. And boy, are they ever difficult to find. But eight invitations companies after, I finally found THE ONE.

The main invitation inside is laser-engraved cherry veneer.

I’ll post photos as soon as we mail the first batch out.

@Buboys_Gurl:  Can’t wait to see them! I’m starting to collect inspiration for me and SO and I think he’d love those pocketfolds as well.

I initially chose navy and grey.

I loved the look of navy with a very light grey. But when it came time to pick flowers I realized I wanted mostly white flowers but with blush pink mixed in.

Now there’s basically no grey aside from a few touches, and my colors are navy and blush pink. 🙂

Yes!  We both knew we wanted cobalt, but were having a hard time choosing a complementary color. We ended up going with yellow, which them led me to adding grey as an accent color.  With all the pretty yellow/grey combos on Pinterest, I just couldn’t help myself 🙂

When I first got engaged, I drew a lot of inspiration from the changing of the trees, and really wanted a wedding that was mostly green with pops of orange everywhere. It wasn’t until I went to have my invites done that the third obvious color crept in… a dark brown. I’ve never been a fan of brown, but it is really a great addition to my other two colors… I mean, if you’re gonna use trees as inspiration, can’t leave out the most important part (the trunk!)

Also, I practically have to fight with myself to limit the orange. It threatens to take over the whole party ocasionally. It’s such a fun color!!
