Hello gorgeous ladies!
I’m fairly new here…
I need some advice. I am getting married Aug 2012 (so it will be summer still…obvioulsy lol and HOT). I cant decide on colours. I know its not something I have to think of immediately but Id like to have some ideas.
Initially I thought I was going to have a fall wedding so I wanted either navy or indigo blue OR black with a colurful accent (sash). But b/c its now in the summer I dont know if I should go with something else? I love purple but 2 of my close gfs had purple. What is your opinions on teal??
Any suggestions would greatly but appreciated!

My first thought was a teal/aqua. Any second colors you’d like to have or are you up for an option?

What I suggest is that you start looking at some color palette boards, and see what speaks to you. An excellent web/blog to look at is http://www.theperfectpaletteblog.com/
she has hundreds of color palettes, go to the library tab on that site and you will see just going through them will give you ideas. This is how I found my color palette. I saw a board and thought “Now that is what I want my wedding to look like!” My colors are Mauve/Plum/Ivory and Silver. Those were the colors that just invoked the emotional wedding response in me, when I saw them. You’ll know your colors when you find them.

I was thinking of teal and really liked it with strawberry. Opposite of you, my summer wedding became a fall wedding.

i too am getting married in August 2012, and my favorite flowers are sweet peas, and my favorite colours are purple/lilac etc……very much like all the coloursof sweet peas.
so my colours are ALL the colours of sweet peas (except for the mint green coloiur) …..here are my bridesmaids inspiration pics,
and i am wearing a lilac petticoat.
and the table decorations will all have some element of one or more of these colours.

Purple is VERY popular right now. I know two other people who are using it as well. But I lOVE eggplant purple so I am still going to use it and add in teal as my accent colour. So if you want it, use it anyway!
