I’d wait a little. I chose my colors 18 months out then changed them slightly 3-4 months away from the wedding. Wasn’t a huge deal, but I think you have plenty of time to decide.

That being said, I didn’t necessarily go with anything “in style,” I just picked what I liked. : ) I think if you do that as well, you’ll be fine.

@zackmarriesamber:  I started planning a year out and nothing seems to be “out of style” however I do have a pretty classic, timeless style so that may have something to do with it.  I’m sure the rustic barn will be around for a few more years.  I’d gather ideas but just keep an open mind as you go through the process.  

Do you have a venue yet?  That will really dictate what style wedding you have. 

And, to ease your mind – colors don’t go out of style! 😉 The colors I had imagined before I got engaged were the ones I went with and haven’t changed my mind at all.

@zackmarriesamber:  I’ve wanted peach since I was a girl and I have never cared wheather it was in or out of style. Beauty is timeless.

@zackmarriesamber:  it seems blush or coral is more in than straight up peach. though I am from ga so there are and always have been TONS of peach weddings, lol.

Take solace that there always will be if we Ga peaches have anything to do with it!

I have the same issue.  I’ve always like the peachy color, but I’m in love with the mint and peach/coral color scheme. Like you, my wedding will be on 2014.  I do have the same concern that this combo is soooo in right now, it will look out by the time I have the wedding. What concerns me the most is pairing up the peachy/coral tones with mint, since mint is definitley a less traditional color.  So for myself I decided to think in terms of tones and not a specific set of colors, just to be open minded for my pre-planning, and choose the exact colors closer to the date. I have my heart in this scheme, though, so I hope it works for then. Best of luck for you too!

Search different color pallets and make a little color pallet book.  Try going to a paint store and just pairing some colors together.  You have so much time to decide.  I think it’s fun to go with something less popular, anyways!  It will make your wedding that much more memorable!  I’m doing Pool Blue and Red because I like the fun and relaxed feel.  Another one I admire right now is orange and navy, which is popular in the apparel world right now.  Making a color pallet book will help you narrow it down in the next few months!
