When we were planning our wedding, we decided to use our two favorite colors, which were purple and orange. Since we were getting married in the fall, during peak foliage, it worked really well.

Whatever dress fitted and my bridesmaids liked we used as the colour for other accents. The flowers were a complimenting colour as flowers don’t grow aquamarine… went with the florists ideas on that one. Honestly your colours aren’t a huge deal!

We sort of chose a theme for our wedding – super moons are special in our relationship, so we chose our wedding date based on the super moon that would happen that night. And we wanted to be able to see and enjoy the moon with our guests, so we chose a venue where we could dance under the night sky. We worked our way into a night sky theme and ended up with dark blue, gray/silver, cream and it was perfect.

hazelbee :  Something similar happened to me.  I went bridesmaid dress shopping with one of my bridesmaids and we both really loved a plum colored bridesmaid dress.  So, plum became one of the colors.  Fiance will wear a gray suit.  Our favorite color is green.  Boom!  Purple, gray, and green became our colors.

We don’t have specific colors. Seriously its so much easier and stress free this way. We’re getting married at a park in September and there’s loads of colors everywhere so we feel like natures beauty is enough. Farm tables, white linens, white plates, round vases with a single floating bird of paradise in each for decor (FI fave flower) and we’re done. Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are black bc it was an easy color to shop for individually and everyone liked the choice. I’m hoping to find a seamstress who can dye the lace flowers on my dress different colors but I’m not going to fret over which specific colors or try and figure out what works with the season etc., 🤗 Just go with whatever colors you love. Its one of those details guests don’t really pay attention to or remember.

Try not to overthink it! This is probably one of those things where being a designer almost gets in the way. You are very skilled at picking palettes so you probably have many different things that you like, but in this situation you can only pick the ONE. I would try to find some kind of reasoning behind a colour, like some sort of symbolic meaning or just that it matches a certain favourite thing.. You could take your favourite colour, and his favourite colour and work with something from that. Or choose your favourite flower and use that. 

I wouldn’t get as specific as narrowing it down to pantones, just pick a basic family of colours and build it out from there. I’m a graphic designer so I had a bit of a similar issue initially, but I ended up picking silvery purples and perriwinkles because I’d just decided to dye my hair that colour, and purple is FI’s favourite colour.

When in doubt, just do all ivory.

buntyboo123 :  I would figure out you and your fiance’s two favorite colors and then go to Pinterest and type in those two colors followed by “wedding colour Pallet” and see if you like what you see. Chances are someone somewhere has done it.
