I am doing a sort of vintage, antique eclectic sort of theme for my wedding. I don’t have a real “color palette”. I got my bridemaid’s dresses in Navy, and I haven’t really picked out any particular flower style or color. I did make my centerpieces with dried perserve flowers, that have this creamy antique look to them, and I don’t know what I will do for my bouqets.
But, I feel like people always ask “what are your colors” and I never know how to answer. I also made my invitations a different color, but they had a vintage look to them.
Is it enought to just have the theme be prevalent in all these things and not be all matchy match color?
I am an art major, I am not afraid of mis matching things to get a beautiful effect, in fact I love it.

It’s your wedding so it should reflect you. If you do not want to have any actual colors than don’t. Use things that work within your theme and call it a day. It’s your day and you should keep that in mind. Who cares what anyone else says or ask.

I think some people ask, so that they don’t match the bridesmaids. So maybe you can tell them that there will be a variety of colors, but your girls will be in navy.

It’s totally ok to not have “set colors.” We started out with the idea for colors, but decided to take inspiration from a fabric pattern that had lots of colors. So just tell people it’s “colorful” and “vintage.”

Agree with edub – people probably want to avoid looking like the BMs…

I do tell people that! haha I always go “um the bridesmaids are in navy.” But I did cave a little, yesterday I made a pallet of some colors I know I am using throughout the wedding, so I suppose those will be my colors!

We didn’t have set colours. Mostly because we ended up having our ceremony and reception at an art gallery, so we didn’t know what would even be up on the walls.
But blkqueen is right, at the end of the day, it should just reflect you.

I love the idea. Before I had decided I hated the “what are your colours??” question. Actually I still do because they are blues and greens of different shades so hard to describe! I sound like I’m describing paint.
