I have been to hundreds of weddings…couldn’t tell you what a single one of them’s color scheme was….I neglected to be interested in such things when I married Mr. 99, but that’s the whole point of eloping…we skipped that part.  Do what you want, people won’t notice unless you paint their faces that color before they come in.

I think loose color schemes are the best since they look more “natural.” I personally find really matchy matchy stuff to be kind of stiff and forced looking so I’m doing a range of purple shades with some accent colors. If you stay in pastels I think everything should end up going together really nicely and give you the classy/whimiscal feel you want.

@LostInWonderland:  I think it’s OK to ditch the color scheme if you have a theme!

@LostInWonderland:  I think that your wedding sounds awesome! Alice in Wonderland requires lots of colours, and I think that staying true to your theme is more important than a colour scheme. If you make the colours too rigid then people might not get what you’re trying to do and the effect will be lost. I say just go for what you like because it’ll make your wedding better and you happier.

@peachacid:  What is wrong with Disney? I’m having my wedding at Disney, and yes there will be Disney undertones. We’re doing jewels in winter (ruby, emerald, amethyst, and ivory) with beauty and the beast undertones (a book cake, B&B cake toppers, rose in glass centerpieces, and possibly B&B photo ops during the reception). I have seen a lot of really beautifully done Disney theme weddings, and I feel as long as its not over the top its fine. I really dont understand what the hell people have against Disney it may not be your thing but you know what beach weddings arent my thing. That doesnt make them any less beautiful I just dont want sand in my dress or on my feet. I also dont like dancing. Then again I also find diamond engagement rings cliche so maybe its just a me thing that I’m more open to accepting anyone’s dream is fine if its not hurting anyone else because I’ve accepted I’m a bit strange and my fiance is equally strange.

@LostInWonderland:  I think your ideas are fine. Alice in wonderland is very whimsicle. A variety of colors will interpret that. You could do your ring pillow with the cheshire cat on it or a stuffed cheshire cat :D. You could use tea cups as candle votive holders too.

I think it’s ok to not adhere strictly to the colors you chose. I chose deep purple amd ivory, but my centerpieces are hydrangeas that are sleep purple, ivory, and a lighter green. I may add a light green flower to my purple and ivory bouquet. Also my card box is wrapped in silver with a purple bow and make cake topper is being painted silver. So I think a little flare of other colors here amd there gives you more depth.

LostInWonderland:  I am a graphic designer so I went crazy deciding on colors and decor! I finally decided that green is going to be a base color – cupcakes, bridesmaid dresses, books on table. But other than that, we can have free reign! We want to incorporate our favorite books and movies and some photography/film canisters into the decor and it would be crazy to try and look for green-only versions of everything! The way I think it will tie together and not look nuts is that we chose only vintage movies and books so the design elements and palettes are similar. So I think having variation is fine!

to be honest, i have never been a fan of the look of a strict color scheme. It looks too matchy-matchy to me.
