Hi there. I’m having some trouble picking out a colour scheme that my fiance and I can agree on. The problem is, I just bought my wedding dress this past week… and it’s not white. It’s a blush Vera Wang. Previously the colour scheme we had agreed upon was a leaf green, ivory, and splashes of a royal purple. The issue now is that I’ve had to change so much of my decor plans and my fiance immediately rejects anything that has too much pink in it. I’m having a hard time finding ways to subtly incorporate pink (I don’t want to give away my dress colour before the big day), without making my rustic outdoor wedding too “girly.” Thanks in advance!

@pink_country_bride: I know what you’re going through with your man not wanting pink. So that you can still keep it secret, could you have pinks in the flowers, table decorations etc and everywhere else go with colours that compliment. Rather than leaf green, how about going for a lighter green and lighten the bright purple or subtley go with a purple/pink, if you call it purple rather than pink your Fiance will be none the wiser.

Is there a reason for not going with the original palette? I think a blush gown would be lovely with those colors!

I think the colour combos posted above are all lovely if you want to incorporate blush into the overall scheme. However, I would suggest to keep your blush dress as the main hit of blush, along with the flowers in blushes and ivories with hits of the leaf green. I’d keep the leaf green and exchange grey or navy blue or a rich chocolate brown for the purple, depending on what time of year it is. That way, you have a palette anchored by a classic neutral (grey or navy or brown), a pop colour (leaf green, like for guys ties, etc), and blush in the flowers and your dress. I think if you use too much blush your dress (which should be the focus) will be a bit lost in the overall scheme. Just my 2 cents, I’m no expert!

I suppose I could stay with the original colours, but I wanted to incorporate just a little more pink into the palette so my dress doesn’t seem like an oddity in relation to everything else. Maybe just a little on the invites, some ribbon here and there. It’s just hard for me to envision it I suppose, and I’m getting stonewalled haha. Everytime you put anything with the words “pink” and “wedding” together on the internet it looks to me like the whole wedding looks like an explosion of pink! I’ll have to keep that purple idea in mind to go with the pink flowers. Thanks for all your help!!

@pink_country_bride: I think your original scheme would look fine.
green, ivory, purple, and just add blush
I think this flows beautifully and has bits of all your colors mixed in
