Was the season, venue, or personal “like” a factor in your wedding color decision or did you pick your colors based on the meaning of colors? I am having a Fall wedding…I will be getting married in 16 days to be exact!!! My color decision had A LOT to do with the season, but the final decision was because of the color meanings. Royal Blue represents loyalty and Pewter represent composure and grace.
What are your colors and why did you pick them. Just wondering. lol.
Happy Planning Bees!

My colors are Chocolate, Vanilla and Red Velvet because I LOVE the combination and I am a fan of Sweet Treats.

I like red but I think a lot of red wedding are very standard/boring/prom looking, so I wanted another strong color to go along with it.
Darling Husband likes blue but I didn’t want it to scream AMERICA so I went with a tiffany/robin’s egg blue–not too babyish and not too bright.
I think the color meanings are a bit silly most of the time, they read like horoscopes. As they’re used in advertising I think they ring true somewhat though.
Red–excitement, passion; light blue–health, cleanliness

teal and dark silver grey– teal is my favorite color, and dark grey compliments it nicely.

Red with metallics.
In a weird way, the color red was one of the first things that we had in common with each other. He noticed that my whole kitchen is red and black and mentioned how much he loved red, and I too, mentioned how much I loved red.
Also, red is a traditional wedding color in Indian/Chinese cultures, so it’s a nice nod to both my parents.

My colors were shades of blue and black, with little pops of red. Blue has been my favorite color since birth, and since our venue had brown tones, I wanted to do black (plus, black is black, but you can get varying shades of brown, and I didn’t want to go there). The red was in honor of my grandma who had passed the year before

We were bridesmaid dress shopping and I knew I would pick our colors based off whatever dress the girls liked. The dress color is named “Violet” and that is my grandmothers name (died when I was 8). I knew I HAD to have it.

Our colors are cobalt blue and yellow. I collected cobalt blue bottles from garage sales as a little kid, and blue is my fiance’s favorite color. Also, both of our undergrad colleges’ colors were blue and yellow, so it works out well 🙂

My colors were Turquoise and Sage. The turq because blue is my absolute fav color and I wanted something bright and I was trying to find something to go with it. I was at my Maid/Matron of Honor looking at pictures of birds (I don’t even remember why) and saw how well those two colors go together. So that was the obvious shades for me 🙂

Our colors were red black and white. My Darling Husband picked our colors one day (before we were even engaged), we were driving the 2.5 hours to see family and just having a “what if” conversation about different things in life, and wedding colors came up. He said he would want red black and white, because every school from elementary to university those were the school colors.
A year later we were engaged and those were our colors…. I liked the colors as well, because red and white were my highschool colors 🙂 And the university he went to, had a room called the Circus Room…. the floor was red…. that is where we had our reception 🙂 So Yes they were significant to us 🙂

Teal… because I loved it. Black because it was easy and made things classy and simple. Oh, and that way my girls could wear black dresses. Purple because there are no such things as teal or black flowers and I needed something! In the end I LOVE the combo!

I just picked colors I liked and thought looked romantic and sophisticated together, and my fiance luckily agreed that they looked good, but now I’m curious about the meanings associated with them!
Pink (pale/blush) – love, romance, caring, tenderness, acceptance and calm
Blue (navy) – importance, confidence, power, stability, unity, conservatism
Silver/Gray – security, dignity, maturity, calm
White – Reverence, purity, peace
Ours is a fairly traditional wedding, and I like those ideas of peace/calm for our wedding day (as well as, obviously, love, romance, unity, and security for our marriage 🙂 )!
