My FI’s favorite team is Michigan and our colors somehow ended up being blue and yellow….he also loves Brewers baseball, whcih coincidentally have blue and yellow as colors.  I changed it so the blue was more teal to not totally look crazy haha.

@Miss Fish: lmao, sorry this gets better and better

I went to Florida and I tried to convince Darling Husband to let me make our wedding colors “Blue and Peach” and he was like “No, because ‘Peach’ will become ‘Orange’ “

Haha, see we were in a catch-22 with football colors. Fiance really wanted blue and orange because of the Denver Broncos, unfortunately, blue and orange are also Florida Gator colors, and that is one of the teams that is not named in our house. lol

@LGenz: LOL at “peach will become orange”. I can see how that could happen.

Bright side, at least you get to have a wedding in the fall! I wanted an October wedding but he refused to get married during college football season!

Darling Husband was opposed to our colors being red and silver because he thought that with the black tuxes and such that it would look like University of Georgia colors (which since we went to Georgia Tech is practically a crime).  I changed the silver to gold and he was then more okay with it.

@MrsPinkPeony: DH and I BOTH refused to get married during football season! 🙂

Oh don’t you worry – My wedding colors are orange and aqua…. except at first my mom kept sending me shit that was orange and blue.  Like the Florida Gators.

Except I’m a Miami Hurricane.

Grrrr.

My mother in law saw a bunch of the orange kitchen stuff on our registries and decided to buy it on ‘the QVC’ as she calls it – but of course, bought more and not the exact stuff I asked for – so now we have a kitchen full of blue and orange Rachael Ray (who I despise) utensils and some other blue knives.

Sigh.

I should’ve just gone with green and orange.

yup…same thing. My colors were going to be blue and sunflowers (yellow?) but of course I was like “sh*t…” so now they’re blue and black (cuz the groomsmen are wearing black, right?) and a bit of yellow sunflower thrown in. :-/

One of FI’s groomsmen is a die-hard OSU fan, and he would not be ok if he realized he would have to wear anything blue and yellow! We’ll just let him think he’s wearing blue and black…and then slip a yellow boutaniere on the big day… 🙂

Same thing is happening to us, but it’s too late to do anything. Alabama is playing PSU the day of our wedding (and we are also setting up the flat screen and satellite to watch the game), and our colors are primarily red with a little black and ivory mixed in. When we announce the bridal party, though, we are planning on having them come out in Penn State wear.
