People are really starting to piss me off. Everyone wants to interject their opinion and when I tell them to STFU they call me a bridezilla.
Sooo, my wedding colors are Coral Pink, Peach, Tan, and Gold. For me, those colors blend perfectly. For my FI, they’re nice. I feel they blend with a Tropical theme wedding well. It’s ok if others don’t agree with me, but why try to force your opinion on me? Why try to “make” me change my colors because they don’t look right in your mind? It’s ok if you don’t like them. That’s fine with me. “YOU AIN’T PAYING FOR SHIT!!” I expected many people, especially in my area, to give me the side eye when they found out the colors. I was prepared for that. What I didn’t expect was sooo many people making it their CIVIL DUTY to get me, and in many cases FI, to change the colors. That is what makes me a bit angry….a bit psychotic…to where my alter-ego “Scarce Rayne” will unload on you. I don’t give a damn if peach and coral are from the same color family (in my world, peach is orange and coral is pink). I don’t give a damn if peach and coral is the same color (ok, I really don’t understand that one). I don’t give a damn if they are from two different seasons. I don’t give a damn if there are no tropics in Mississippi so a tropics theme is stupid (oh you know I unloaded cannons on that lady). FI and I both don’t give a damn if the color scheme is “too girly” (do you think this grown ass man would agree to the colors if he thought that way?) I don’t give a hot damn if the colors clash with your skin tone (you aren’t on the guest list anyway.)
Ok bees, I’m sorry about that. I had to unload. I promise…well….I hope I won’t have to unload again.
****I went back a re-read my post….I had to laugh at myself. I hope it doesn’t get deleted because of the profanity.****
Oh and here’s some examples of the colors…

I don’t think there is anything wrong with your color scheme, people need to mind their own business.

I love the color scheme. Don’t listen to them. They probably just can’t imagine the colors working together in their mind, so just prove them wrong on your wedding day.

These colors look great together! Don’t worry about what others are saying.

scarcerayne: I was expecting the colours to be CRAZY and clash. Those go really nicely together! I’ve also looked at a lot of different colours for my own wedding so they didn’t ‘look’ bad in my head.
That sucks girl, hang in there. It’ll be beautiful!

Those colors look great together. Kudos to you for not letting others’ opinions sway you from what YOU want!

Those colors look great together! Just to try to give people the benefit of the doubt, because everyone’s eye receptors process colors and shades differently, it’s possible that in their minds peach and coral are the same color or clashing, but seeing them all together, I think most people would agree they look remarkably nice, and either way they should use more tact with their unsolicited opinion. I would come up with a clever response to have ready for the next person who brings it up.

Why are you even telling anyone in advance? The only people who need to know are your bridesmaids (to help choose their dresses) and anyone specifically helping you plan. Everyone else just needs to turn up on the day and see then. Your colours are lovely btw.

Looks good to me! I don’t get it how people think their opinion is always right – as if you just randomly chose colours without researching how they look together. How about they give you some credit. You have good taste!

Beautiful colours. Years ago ( earlier failed relationship) I planned a wedding where the colour scheme was red, white and blue. I planned on wearing a white dress, carryng red roses and having my bridsesmaid wear royal blue. My family were aghast! My grandmother said ” I’ve discussed it with everyone and we all agree you can’t have those colours, they’re too stark”…so I sort of understand where you are coming from. Really it ‘s no-one else’s buisness. Not sure why peole think it is.

Beautiful colour scheme! I dont know why people are so insistant on having things their way when it isnt their wedding! We’ve all been to weddings where we think ‘yeah I wouldnt have picked those colours’ or ‘I wouldnt have done that with the venue’ but you would NEVER say it out loud! Often the choices made reflect that couple as well which is nice. I love when I go to a friends wedding with bright bold colours because it suits them as a couple. Personally I live in black and pastels so my wedding will be pastel colours. People tell me all the time that I’m too young not to wear colour but thats just me and I would feel out of place with something different. Pick what you like and what makes you comfortable. Everyone else should keep their opinions to themselves!
