Im getting married in May 2018 & have thought about having bridesmaids wear light/sky blue dresses & have them carry bright pink flowers- we’re getting married at a vineyard and I never thought about an actual color palette- i don’t want to come across more like a gender reveal but I just want bright fun spring/summer boho like colors incorporated. Guys we’re going to wear a dark gray/charcoal vest. Is it better to have a set scheme? Thoughts?

Have you consider gray dresses on the BM?

no, I guess that is an option- I just loved the light blue.

Honestly, I am not having a “color theme”, im just doing patel and light colors really. You don’t have to have a theme.
I like the blue and pinks together, its cute. I say go for it.

If you are weary about pink, why not go with peach. It’s a lovely spring/summer color.

No it’s ok!! I don’t have a set theme and I like it so much better! It’s a lot of black and white with splashes of others

I didn’t really have a color theme either and it was fine! BMs wore mismatched blush/cream dresses, invitations were copper and green, bouquets were white with pops of coral and lots of greenery, floral arrangements at reception were literally all over the place with lots of bright colors and greenery, groomsmen wore navy and gray…it was kinda all over the place but we loved the way it turned out! I don’t like a super manicured look anyway so this aesthetic worked perfectly for us.

We also are not doing a color theme… It was too limiting.

We don’t have a specific color theme bc I don’t care enough about colors to put effort into it. 🤗 Told bridesmaids to wear whatever they like, everyone chose black. Venue provides white tablecloths and chairs, napkins are red bc its Fiance fave color, setting a glass bowl on each table with table number inside that matches our invites and a couple of our fave flowers per my other halfs request otherwise we’d have no flowers. Fave flowers are calla lily and bird of paradise. However the end result looks is fine with me.

I got married in a vineyard and the only color was my maid of honor’s dress, our two bouquets, and the flowers decorating the various tables. I don’t like matchy, matchy.
Oh, and I picked different colored ties for the men from the same brand (in similar patterns).

Got married in May too. Your colors sound like mine. I didn’t have a color scheme either because I think they tend to be too much. My bridesmaids had different shades of light blue. The flowers were neutral with pink and yellow and off white, and a lot of greenery. Some gold accents with the table numbers. I just chose stuff that complemented each other and were pleasing to the eye. Not everyone needs a color scheme.

You either choose a a color palette or you end up with one anyways, because of the choices you make along the way. Either way, you have a color palette.
If you want to expand a bit on the pink and blue, add in multi colored flowers for your bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces. Multi color looks more casual and boho.

This! Yes. You’ll end up with -something-, even if it’s just what you ended up happenstance-choosing, without a plan. I love the idea of not having a themed palette, or a ‘color’, or even a ‘few’.
We’re doing purples… all shades of purples. But also pops of blue, and dark green, and there’ll be other colors too, just by virtue of existing. We’re not having bridesmaids or groomsmen, but my mother and sister, stepdaughters and nephews will want to accessorize and/or dress in shades of purples (whether it’s lavender, indigo, wisteria, royal blue, deep purple, whatever). It’s merely what we’re using as our flowers for the chuppah, bouquet, accent flowers, and decorations. Since our wedding is in mid-December and in front of a Christmas tree (and we’re not Christian – this was accidental, but we love it- it’s in our town square!), I wanted to choose flowers for the chuppah that would not clash but also blend well without being too Christmassy. So we’re doing wisteria, and other purplish flowers.
It makes it so much easier when you can just go with a big color family rather than panic with a specific swatch shade and argue about what coral “means”, imho! I also just… don’t really dig when things are super matchy matchy. I would have done all sorts of whatever-colors, except for the fact that because things are kinda ‘dead’ outside (and we’re outdoors) in December, having a strong, deep color family gives things a cohesive, yet textured feel.

Sounds like you have a plan.

We don’t really have a color theme yet either. My wedding is in December and my bridesmaids are wearing black dresses and my dress is off white. We’re having the groomsmen wear black suits but not sure on tie color, and not sure on color of flowers yet. I’ll figure it out.
