    I don’t think everything has to match. I think a color pallate of metallics will suit your venue the best. It’s totally fine to add a couple of accent colors (like the blue and green) if you want!

    do whatever you want! we’re loosely having a black & ivory color scheme, based on the fact that Bridesmaid or Best Man and Groomsmen will be in black, and i’ll be in ivory and we’re going with ivory/white flowers. but i’m sure other colors will find their way into the wedding and that’s fine too.

    We don’t have a color scheme. It’s just not us to do that.

    I’d have faith that whatever you really love will look like “you.” That’s the point, isn’t it?

    We kind of had colors?  Mostly when people asked, I would think about what we were mostly using and just say that.  I think unless the colors are everywhere, people don’t really notice.  You could always just say you’re doing blue, green, white, and gold though.  It’s ok to have a bunch.

    I think having your girls in a color and your invitation ink in another is totally fine. It would be weird to have them have green shoes and a blue dress but the invitations aren’t going to be at the wedding, in your pictures, etc.

    We didn’t have a color scheme, just common sense in picking items that won’t totally clash, and it worked just fine. Just be prepared for weird looks when you tell people you don’t have one, because like you said for some reason that’s the first thing everyone asks.

    I didn’t vote but maybe you could stick to having more neutral colors since there is already a lot of color going on in the venue.

    @Leprechaun: I am having the same issues. I have finally just started telling people that I have a color pallette; not just two or three colors. We are getting married in a Victorian setting too, and there are just to many colors to choose from and stick with, so I have just been going with whatever I think looks best. I think you should add whatever colors you want. I know it will look great. And I am sure that once your Fiance sees it all out together, he will be like “wow”, that really does look nice. My Fiance was the same way your Fiance is and he has come around, so I know yours will too.

    Simply put, you don’t have to do anything, its your day!  And blue and green and gold all look good together anyway!

    I’m in a similar boat where I have many colors.  As long as you like it and makes sense to you, go for it!

    I saw a wedding that had NO color scheme! The bridesmaid all wore the same style dress different colors.  The bouquets were all different colors.  The groomsmen wore simple black ties and the groom wore a white tie. And the cake was white with the same flowers as the bouquets.  The invitations were classic white and black! And then you don’t have to worry about different things “matching!”


    I kept everything simple and used all white flowers.  No headaches!
