    yeah, I made the mistake of saying my colors were ivory, navy and silver and my aunt and Mother-In-Law have run with it. Silver was supposed to be an accent color but they just keep on bringing me more silver LOL. Luckily, I have a wedding planner and she is setting up the venue so I will say “oh she must have forgotten…” if they ask where the stuff is.

    You have plenty of time to pull a color out. Maybe just say “well, orange is only an accent so I want it in very small increments” next time the bring over the warehouse club stack of orange chair covers HAHA!!

    If you truly believe it could spiral out of control… change it.  The stress isn’t worth it.  What does your Fiance think?

    I just got married and had the same kind of problem when we started.  I found it hard to keep the over-indulgent family from going overboard, but what I tried to do was to point them in the right direction.  So if you like the blue and orange, keep the orange, but start giving your family tasks directed more to the blue so that way the blue projects will overshadow the orange when it does pop up.  Another good way to angle the attention to the blue would be to start dropping comments to your side of the family like: well I really love the blue but the Fiance suggested orange which I wasn’t sure about it…so let’s keep that to a minimum.  Haha.  If it was anything like me, most of the craziness came from my side of the family so they really just wanted to give me what I wanted.  In the end, if you tell them heavy on the blue, light on the orange, and no sports references…they may try to actually give you what you want.

    Oh yah, and if anything truly crazy does make it’s way to the purchased-but-not-returnable category, try getting it involved in something before the day of the wedding so you make the person feel like they made a contribution without it actually showing up on the wedding day.  For example, if a huge mascot gets bought, go take some pics with it with Fiance and bring the pics to the wedding to display in a cute way rather than the whole costume….Good luck!
