Well I expect my colors to be everywhere because I accidentally picked my school colors… I went to UT Austin and I picked orange and ivory to be my main colors lol.  I guess I just naturally gravitated toward it without realizing?  Anyway, I don’t think its such a bad thing.  Just make it your own!  Do what you love!

There’s only so many colours to go around.  I thought I was doing something a little off the beaten path when I picked my “green tea”/cream/grey wedding, and then it was EVERYWHERE in internet land.  But if it’s still what you love, stick with it!

funny, i didn’t find i saw a whole bunch of purple weddings when i was planning mine! maybe because i was mostly paying attention to beach weddings since that’s what i was doing and i found most beach weddings were aqua/blue/yellow and other bright colors.   I think maybe you are seeing it everywhere because u are focused on it. Imagine red or blue was your main color, you would be writing this post about those colors.

Oh and i just wanted to chime in because i love purple (wonder if my name gave it away?).  My high school prom dress was lavender and i always knew from then that would be the color of my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and then planned everything around it.

Haha, yeah I had some similar thoughts. I LOVE purple – our living room is decorated in purples! Our wedding is Purple (my fav color) and Green (FI’s fav color). I think maybe you’re seeing lots of purple because it’s your color. I’ve been to one other purple wedding and it’ll have been almost a year before mine with only a small amount of overlapping guests. Also remember – wedding websites are NOT good indicators of reality! LOL.

I picked orange and brown. Thinking I didnt have to pick another color, but then I realized orange and brown by itself? No…lol. So I picked the purple color to go with them. And so far its all coming together.

Its really hard picking colors, it really is. 🙂

@angie.derek.anderson: LOL, i have a unicorn tattoo, hence my name!  and actually my purple-unicorn obsession goes back to reading Sweet Valley Twins books in elementary school where Jessica was part of the Unicorn Club and they had to wear something purple everyday to be in the club!  

And YAY for having a purple beach wedding!!

Eh, no matter what color or color combo you go for, chances are a million and one brides are using it as well. I’m trying to go with a color family vs. one or two colors to try and make my wedding more “unique” – purple/lavender as a base with gold and highlights of chocolate and champagne.

@AmeliaBedelia:  and YAY for purple prom dresses!  i only had one prom. And i loved my dress so much i decided i was going to wear it to the Oscars one day – either to accept an award or to be the girl in the background who hands them out.  Instead i wore my dress as a wedding guest a couple of times after high school, and for my university “prom”

@dynamic_duo: I have found many an excuse to wear mine as well! I wore it to a convention on “dress up night.” Maybe I was a tad more dressy than others, but I had convinced some other friends to do the prom dresses as well. They were a hit at least! ha. I have half a mind to post it but I feel like that’d be major threadjacking! haha.

OP it definitely seems that way to me as well. Purple is my favorite color as well and I always knew I would want to incorporate it in to my wedding somehow. My colors are plum and champagne. But I am hoping its like a PP said, we’re only seeing it all the time, because we are thinking about it. It’s like when you get a new car, you NEVER see that type of car anywhere and the moment you make your decision to get it EVERYBODY has one.
