    Well, it is his wedding too … regardless of what the Bees say, I think you need to defer to his preference on this and find colors that both of you like.

    The teal/fall combination looks better than what I orginally saw in my head, but I think I’m going to side with your Fiance on this one.  The gray/fall looks way better in my opinion.

    Only one of you likes teal and orange, but both of you are happy with gray and orange. Sounds like you’ve already reached a good compromise. Go for gray and orange!

    i think you have a winner with the grey. 

    it’s your favourite colour and he likes it.  what more could you ask for?  besides, grey will be so much easier to match up than teal.

    i love the grey with those colours.

    Ugh isn’t it so annoying when we have the colors already picked out and than Fiance has to destroy our world by telling us he doesn’t like them?

    But I guess it’s their wedding too haha, damn you compromise.

    I like the gray the best with the orange, but I still think you could include elements of the teal here and there like bridesmaid jewelry or ribbon on bouqets, etc.

    I like both, but if your Fiance doesn’t like the teal it it’s a no go. So I voted for grey.

    I think the teal and orange examples you show are pretty but the color scheme looks more summery, and you’d have to be really careful to get the right soft, grayed-down shades of teal and orange so that you didn’t end up with harshly contrasting complementary colors. The deep gray and pumpkin scheme shown in the first set of pics is richer and more fall like, and equally pretty (or more so).

    I like the teal more but if you both like the gray then go with that. the wedding is for both of you so it’s important that you agree on it.

    pink and pearls was our original theme but once Fiance got interested in the planning process he decided that was too girly. He suggested adding blue. I thought that was too “baby shower”esque and in return suggested green. He liked it. We compromised 🙂

    I love the pop of teal but the grey looks good too.  Plus Fiance likes it so I say Grey! 🙂

    I know what it’s like to have your Fiance shoot down your color options. I was so totally set on a hot pink and gray wedding and when I finally told my fiance he shot it down. After looking through tons of inspiration pictures we finally found colors that both of us loved. If he likes the gray with fall colors, go with gray.

    I think the teal might be a little clash-y with the orange anyway.

    You might be better off with a deep plum or wine accent, but if not, I vote steele.
