I’d just say purple, black and white then to avoid the frustration of having to clarify.

I don’t think it’s necessary to have a second or third color.  It really depends on the bride and groom and their vision for their wedding.  Some people use other colors to accent their main color, or to help hide ceremony/reception venue decor.  I think having a venue at such a cool place doesn’t require an intricate color palette.

Haha I had a similar problem the other day – I stopped to look at invitations, and the woman asked “so what is your color scheme?” and I said “blue!” and she looked at me and was like “and…?” and I literally said “uhh. mm.. well. blue. just blue.”

My friend that was with me piped up and said “It’s blue and white, with a tiny touch of teal and purple in her flowers, blue dendrobium orchids!”

So now I say that. And people don’t look at me like I’m crazy now!

@Mulan05:  Yep… My colours were green, grey and white.  Because when I said green/grey people made faces and didn’t “trust the vision” hehe, and said that I had NO colour scheme.  My dress was white, free table cloths that come with the venue happened to be white, and for whatever reason green, grey and WHITE made things much more palatable to the general masses.  *Eye roll*

Some of my favorite weddings have been in varying shades of white. It was dreamy and very upscale.

Have as many or as few colors as you want!

Honestly, I had never heard of multiple colors being the norm for a wedding scheme before the Bee, so don’t feel bad.  

Whenever I talk about my wedding with the “real world” and I tell them my color(s) are black, white and purple, they look at me like I’m going to have some kind of complex, super fancy wedding because it’s not just one color.

i don’t think you need more that that.  like you said, there’s the white dress and black tuxedo.

you can aways just reply “purples” or “shades of purple”.  btw, i think shades of one colour (monochromatic) for decor can be very elegant.

It’s hilarious to me that “blue” is considered a crazy color scheme, but “blue and white, with small touches of teal,” is the normal, appropriately bridal, answer.

Both sound like pretty weddings to me!

I planned my first wedding far away from family and friends, in my first 6 months of a year-long fellowship, and finishing up graduate school. To simplify everything, I told everyone the color scheme was blue. “Which blue?” ANY blue. Just bluuuueeee. I figured unless people started wandering into blended colors like blue-green or purple, tones of blue matched, and I could give myself a break from having to pick out the exact shade of Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, linens, flowers, etc. I thought it came out beautifully. 

Rock out your purples!!

@Mulan05:  I am old and remember when weddings used just one color. I was actually a bridesmaid in a Just Purple wedding. I wore Purple.

I see today’s wedding world with multiple colors to be part of the trend of growing the wedding to a  Big Exravaganza.

@Mulan05:  Yep!  I’m doing black and white damask and purple.  Sounds a lot more complicated than it is.  hehe
