Our colors are going to be predominately black and white with some dark aqua/turquoise accents thrown in. Wedding’s in early Sept so we’re going with a more summery feel with the aqua rather than the rich colors for fall. I love that Sept can work either way!!

I’m basically counting my date as summer (9/4/10) and going with cobalt blue, sunshine yellow and bright orange. Very summery and bright, but I do feel like a bit of a poser because sept usually makes me think of fall. I just couldnt give up this idea for colors even after picking a later date than I expected.
@toothfairyb – I love your board! I’m using a lot of the same elements in my inspiration.

Sept. 18, 2010 here and our colors are navy, sky blue and silver and tan as a neutral. We went with preppy beach as our underlying theme as the reception is on the ocean so we are hoping for sunshine and trying not to think about fall.

September 4th in Vermont means the gardens are still full of produce and flowers for harvest. Our colors are pumpkin orange and dark violet/eggplant and we are planning on having flowers and fresh vegetables of all colors (especially pinks, greens, yellows, oranges and purples). It is so exciting to be married at a time of abundent harvest!

First of all – 9.10.11 is an awesome date! You can have so much fun with that!
We’re Sept 5 (Labor Day Wknd) – since it’s still practically August I went pretty neutral, we’re doing a mix of a pink-champagne color, ivory, navy and gold- it’s kinda hard to explain but just think pretty & candle-light glow. There’s a “Real Wedding” on here that’s got the same feel to it that I’m looking for – only I’m thinking less pink for myself:
Real Weddings: Amber and Tom
I had a really hard time deciding but there’s a lot of inspiration out there. One of the sites I found most helpful is Wedding Cabaret. She’s got tons of Muse boards that’re gorgeous! Here’s the link:

Our colors are dark/navy blue and silver.
Since the birthstone for Semptember is sapphire (my favorite gemstone) I wanted to do like a sapphire blue but it was too hard to find a bridesmaid dress in the style I wanted in that color and decor was getting hard to find too. I think navy and silver is going to look very classic & chic! (But I say this of course because it’s my wedding )
Has anyone thought about flowers for Semptember? I’m trying to choose flowers in season so that they will be cheaper, but blue flowers are hard to come by! Anyone have any suggestions?

I’ve chosen a deep blue (almost navy but the name is majolica blue), olive green, slate grey/silver, and ivory. It sounds like a hodgepodge, but the colors together are really nice. My dress is ivory, the bridemaid’s dresses are close to navy blue, and the guys suits will be grey. The flowers will mostly be in shades of green and white. Green orchids (can’t remember the name) will take center stage in the bouquets and centerpieces. I received my sample DIY invitation suite in Parisian Blue from Cards and Pockets today! Gorgeous!

For flowers we’re having some tea roses (my grandmother’s fav who passed away last summer), ranunculus, some winter cabbages (in the centrepieces), freesia (my favs), white orchids, dusty millers for some foliage…. I’m drawing a blank on the rest. I wanted anemones but apparently they bruise REALLY easily. Of course, no peonies 🙁

We are doing Black and White with “Brick” red accents. We like the modern feel to it but the red will bring in some of the warm colors of the fall. We are a late september wedding (sept 24, 2011) so its far enough out of the summer for us to go with the darker accents. We figure this will save us some $$ because black in white you can find in anything. Its when you get the obscure colors that you have to spend more on certain items to do custom colors. Also my bridesmaids are doing cocktail/tea length dresses in black with either a white or red sash so they can definatly wear them again. I think it will look really nice with the black tuxes.
The biggest reason for these colors is we like them, they are easier to plan with, and hopefully will be more cost effective.
