I think it’s always good to consider your venue when picking your colors. We wanted to keep things simple [like, black and white] but it was outside so we didn’t want it to seem too formal with just black and white—so we added pops of different shades of green. I think it tuned out great.  Definitely wasn’t because green is my favorite color or anything : )

Ooh when I saw this picture when looking for aqua kitchen colour inspiration, I fell in love with it

I’ve always wanted red for my wedding but thought it would be too heavy for June so when I saw it teamed with aqua I knew it was perfect. I explored different colour ideas but came back to this as it also suits my venue.

I feel like our color choice may have been a bit on the dorky side, but that’s okay.  ๐Ÿ™‚  We picked our favorite colors, which for awhile have been “our colors.”  Like, we’d get excited if we saw a burgundy/turquoise thing together.  Yeah…:-)

So, it seemed like it was just logical to use those as the wedding colors.  Plus we’re having a fall wedding and the burgundy fits nicely with the fall colors.  ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree with PP- Since my venue has a lot of rich wood, and gold curtain drapery, etc…I wanted to lighten up the palatte with more neutral colors- so I picked ivory, champagne, blush pink and green.

I don’t know why, but I’ve just always wanted blush pink tones (BMs are going to wear blush pink)…I just always thought it was so romantic. Also, I’m mixing in some spring green colors more than likely–just because I’m having a spring wedding and I think it would look springy and colorful ๐Ÿ™‚

we chose blue and green, we’re having a may wedding so the color scheme fit with spring and blue is my favorite color while green is my FH favorite color.

Green was a given because I love green.

Blue was added after we found the bridesmaids dresses.

We really struggled in choosing colors, mainly because we had a ton of friends that were married last year and we didn’t want to “copy” any of theirs. When it came down to it, we really choose the colors that we wanted and didn’t worry about anyone else….purple shades and gray it is!

We compromised on our colors. I offered blue, gold and white (St. Louis Rams) and he offered silver and black (Oakland Raiders). Since neither of us wanted the other teams colors, we chose teal, black, white and silver (San Jose Sharks). We both LOVE the Sharks! Its probably a good thing we picked our colors before the Giants won the World Series!

I saw a wedding blog where the girl used yellow and blue and it was perfect…I was hooked.

We wanted to pick some of our favorite colors, we first were going to pick red/black/white or purple/black/white, but decided that it wouldn’t work for a spring time garden wedding.

We eventually decided light blue and white, but then figured out it would look good if we did assorted blues and white.

I knew blue was going to be the color, its my husband favorite.  (we are having a VR) and our colors will still be blue.  Dark Blue, light blue, yellow and ivory…

the first time around i was rather blase about the whole wedding thing, not much but blue, blahhh this time though there will be great variety, here is a photo of all the diy flowers i have done to give you a better idea…  the little dark flower in the front is made out of a magazine pages…  these will go on the trees of my venue to add something, but not take away from natural surroundings of it… ๐Ÿ™‚

I picked a lighter shade of blue as our “main” colour because it’s my FI’s favourite. Then I based the rest of the scheme off that: yellow and lime green seemed to go well with the blue and seemed very summery.

I had some ideas in mind, but my venue + timeframe/season + eliminating colors we DIDNT want + keeping it simple = my colors.  (Grey, orange, yellow, white)

Apparently I’ve been relatively obsessed with this scheme for a while – I’ve used this piece of paper that I bought from Michaels as my inspiration for a bathroom remodel (dark grey walls, light grey towels, and this paper framed and hanging on the wall for color) TWICE… once in FI’s old house, and again in our current.  I love it.
