I don’t see why you have to stick to only 2 or 3 colors.  My future sister in law has 5 colors that she is using for her wedding in Hawaii this August.  She couldn’t decide so she picked ALL of them.

I also don’t have a color scheme. My BMs are wearing black and we are bringing in some lavenders and white and a bit of green – but it’s also a rustic lake setting so we are having birch centerpieces. I think it’s all about creating a nice atmosphere that makes you happy!

We used primarily pink and lavender, but actually wandered through the spectrum of those colors into cranberry and eggplant and everything in between, with both silver and gold accents.  My mom was quite doubtful, but it ended up looking fantastic – we got a lot of compliments on all the decor. 

I think it helps if you have a basic color scheme – I really started with the idea of a bouquet I had seen on my florist’s website that incorporated pinks and lavenders and cream and dark purple and dark red and pale green… sort of an English Garden theme.  Our venue was not the typical cream-and-gold ballroom – it has really vibrant cranberry and dark lavender walls, gold and sage curtains, a lot of gold leaf, and some fantastic antique furniture, so I was looking for something that fit in with that background.

We don’t have a color scheme either. The girls are wearing navy dress because the guys are in navy/dark green kilts. The flowers, invites and other touches are orange/burgandy/natural for the fall, winecountry setting. Good luck!

We’re going with white.  When people ask me what our "colors" are, I say "white."  You wouldn’t believe the looks I get.  It’s a wedding!  I can have a white wedding if I want!  (Although, I totally love Miss Cream Puff’s multi-colored wedding …)

 That being said … yes, we’ll probably have an accent color.  I’m going to convene with my bridesmaids, though, and see what color they’d prefer to wear.

@emmyleeee: traditionally, weddings are supposed to be white. the original color schemes were really only played out as accent colors. the idea of having more bright colors is really a fairly new one. i thing all / mostly white can be done very elegantly. 🙂

@kakita: i think the most important thing is that everything goes well together and that you like it. if you have an overall feel or theme to the wedding, (ie: rustic, romantic, vintage, etc.) you can fit in any and all colors that you want as long as it all flows. even if a bride had everything in one specific color – say, blue – it can still not "go"… say, she has a very modern looking blue cake with antique vintage centerpieces – also in blue. i think the most important part is that everything works together. does that make sense?

Don’t forget that different spaces can have different color schemes.  You can have a blue/green ceremony with a red/yellow reception, or decorate different areas of the reception space (the cocktail lounge area and the table area, for instance) with different schemes.  It’s a fun way to give each area its own feeling and keep the decor interesting as guests move from space to space.

you don’t have to narrow it down… but it will make everything a hell of a lot easier when making decisions.
