We’re eloping and I still get asked if we have colors.  Nope.  I know even if we were having a proper wedding we still wouldn’t have a theme.  I’m not a big theme person.

I definitely don’t think you need a theme.  But I also don’t think color schemes are a new thing at all.

You’re going to need to coordinate your colors, but that doesn’t mean you have to be super planned about it. The colors of your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, for example, will influence the colors your florist would recommend for your flowers.

Your theme can always be: WEDDING!

I didn’t. IMO it looks like prom. Our venue had so much character on it’s own so there wasn’t a lot to do that needed a bunch of matchy embellishments.

@LadyElva:  You definitely don’t need a color scheme either if you don’t want one!  Generally I tend to think it centers around whatever color of Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses people have (and I would assume that was what their colors were if I was a guest).  But if you don’t have Bridesmaid or Best Man you might not have one at all!

Oh and I do have a lovebird theme but the only reason I have a theme is because our nickname for each other is “birdie” so I just had to do it.  But it’s not too over the top, just some touches here and there. Otherwise I probably wouldn’t have had one either Smile

@LadyElva:  I’m having invitations with some birds on them, I have two bird cake toppers, and I’m doing branch centerpieces with some little wooden birds I think I might put on some branches, a birdcage card holder, and I want to do some paper cut-out bird backround for the ceremony.  I enjoy wedding planning and sometimes we get down-time days at work so I find the time to plan and browse online on the job! I can’t go overboard on theme and there will be no pastels because it’s in a distillery…definitely not a garden wedding! Smile

Midget would be a very interesting theme!!! haha!

I agree that it looks like prom. i’ve never been a fan of wedding colors. We are getting married in a garden so I’m not going to have colors just for the sake of having colors. I’m probably going to have my maids wear lavender but thats it.

@LadyElva:  I don’t think choosing wedding colors is a new concept, but I tend to think that choosing a theme is.  I had actually never heard of choosing a theme until I signed up for WeddingBee.

We haven’t officially decided on our color scheme (though we’re still in the very early stages of planning), but we’ll probably come up with something.  I don’t really want everything to be super matchy-matchy, but I like the idea of having a somewhat cohesive look for the wedding party, venue, etc.

As for a theme, I doubt we’ll have one.  We’ve been talking about just putting in a bunch of seemingly random things that are very “us” … I think that’s probably what we’ll end up doing.

We’re not having a theme either – each to their own, but I think they’re kind of goofy.  We’re super outdoorsy, fun-loving people and live in the boonies (Wyoming) so we’ll have decorations and activities that are just things we like.  Wildflowers, mason jars cause my parents have a gazillion from canning, corn hole cause that’s all we do at summer parties, nature-y stuff like a tree guestbook and sliced wood cakestand and flowers in my hair, etc.  (I have wanted all these things for years before they became all Pinteresty popular, but that’s another whole story!)
