hi Bee’s i got a question for you lovely ladies.
does your FH have a say in your colors for your wedding?
my FH is set on blue which is both of our favorit color but know im seeing all these other soft elegant beautiful colors and im sot feeling my blues lately ; )
i dont know what to do. the last thing i would ever do is make him feel like hes not involved.
it would hurt his feelings. but sometimes i feel hes too involved lol

My fiance is the opposite, he couldn’t care less about stuff like that. I think blue is pretty though, you could do a dark navy and have a soft color with it. Remember, its just as much his wedding as it is yours.

No, not really. Neither of us really cared, though, so they’re going to end up being black and ivory somewhat by default.

You could incorporate a shade of blue into the other colors you like. I’m not very good at it, but there are some ladies on here that are genius with color schemes. Search the threads for inspiration boards!

Yup. Well, I didn’t really care – I’ve always loved all colors, I just knew I wanted our wedding to have a fun, festive feel, not a formal, girly feel. I listed off some colors I thought would be nice, and FI picked. We’re going to have kelly green, yellow, black and white (the yellow will mostly be accents like flowers) – FI is a big Green Bay Packers fan (I am a fan by default), so he’s really happy with that. Plus, our first choice venue offers linens in green and white for free- works out well!

Well, kind of. We mutually decided we’d use our 2 favorite colors: mine was blue, and his was green. Though eventually I got to pick the shades that we used, pretty sure apple green isn’t what he was thinking, but he went with it anyway! 😀

Yep, we picked the colours together He is involved in every single (except dress) decision.

Mine chose the colors himself. I didn’t care one way or the other. He’s involved in everything but the dress. He was the one doing the research when we first got engaged. I love it. I don’t think the wedding should be about just the women, though.

Oh yeah, big time! I thought he really wouldn’t care but nope! I suggested a coral / gold / pink colour combo, but it turns out that he is violently against the colour coral. Pink is totally fine, but coral is disgusting. Who knew!?
We settled on purple (my choice) and silver (his choice).

Not really. I ended up deciding on black and green, he just mentioned he was relieved there wasn’t any pink or purple involved!

I orginally wanted to go with soft creams and lots of light blush pinks. Fi thought it was too girly. I think working on picking a color that both of you agree with is best, even if it sucks a tiny bit

DH is colour blind so we took months (long before we were engaged) to pick colours he could see and that I would also like. Turns out my favorite colour is purple even tho I liked other schemes they just didnt work for him.

I am using my two favorite colors, maroon and gold, which my bff/MOH and I could have told you years ago, but it also works out since those are the colors of his favorite (like, obsession) football team, the 49ers.
So, he didn’t help pick but I did choose ones that he likes.
As far as your situation, if blue is a color you like and he feels very strongly about it, I would say go with it as one of the colors, but then you can pick whatever shade will best match the other colors you choose to go with.

Yea that was something we had to agree on … He hates pink I dunno why and his brothers wedding was recent and his brothers wife picked a coral color I mentioned how he had no problem wearing pink for that and he replied with “it’s not my wedding” … Granted I never wanted pink but I was interested in a purple And he didn’t like that either be both love aqua and teal I love how it is vibrant without being to girl or to masculan and so far that’s the only thing he has expressed a strong opinion on… But I’m sure there will be other things ! Haha
