Has anyone switched up their colors/theme between the ceremony and reception? How did it work out for you?
Here are my thoughts. My colors are dusty blue/vintage peach/champagne. I was thinking the girls will wear dusty blue with vintage peach bouquets for the ceremony and I’ll incorporate a few champagne accents in the mix. For the reception, I want to switch it up and have vintage peach centerpieces (a mix of florals on some tables, and white candles in clear glass holders + peach rose petals on others) on champagne (not metallic!!) hued tableclothes and have dusty blue as the accent color (like the favor boxes, table numbers, etc).
I guess I’m weirded out by my bridesmaids matching the table decorations? & I like the blue, but I don’t want to be overwhelmed with it either.
How did you guys do it? (:

Hello! I switched, but because I got married in the church, and they had another wedding at the same day. So, I had to talk to the other bride to see which colors she chose for her wedding. I almost died when she said red, because my colors were lilac and pink.
In the end, we agreed to put only white flowers in the church, and we used the other colors for our reception decoration.
I like your color scheme, I think it is going to work great!

We did something similar to that. Our ceremony flowers were all burgundy and gold (like my dress and the bridesmaid dresses) and the centrepieces were green, white and silver. It still looked gorgeous and classy.

Thanks guys! I’ve just never seen it done before. All the weddings I’ve been to have had ONE strict main color and then two accent colors. (:

I think that is great and actually very modern and on trend. You see more wedding where the color is an accent and more of the neutrals are used. As well as you see simple ceremony decor and then different colors for the reception.
My colors were red and aqua blue. My invites, favours and welcome packages all had more use of the aqua blue with accents of red.
My wedding party attire was in neutrals of charcoal silver with red, blue and black accents.
Then for the reception I used more red and white with natural wood accents. The aqua blue was only seen on the paper elements (menu cards, seating charts, favours, etc.).
I think it worked well and what you explained will be fantastic. I feel as long as you keep some elements the same it will look great!
