I couldn’t decide between my two favourite colours, and have just gone with WHITE EVERYTHING… so I don’t have to worry about shades matching etc.

Hell yeah.

I’ll be getting married in Colorado.  My family is from TX and my Fiance is from Cali so while we live here, it will be more of a “destination” wedding for our family.  So we’re playing up the whole Colorado vibe.  I didn’t want it to be Christmasy but more like Michael Buble meets rustic mountain lodge.  It’s been hard to find that line between too rustic versus too stiff and formal.  I have almost filled up my dropbox storage space with pictures and finally was able to come up with an inspiration board. It’s not perfect but a good start.  I would recomend collecting as many pictures as you can possible find—even if one day you don’t remember why you liked that picture, it’s nice to have and you can always toss it out.  Once you have a lot to work with, play with them and make a board.  It will keep you on track and focused.  You can also use the board to take to vendors and they will be able to give you even MORE ideas!  Here’s my board:

I’m Dec 2013 as well. Crashing here because the Dec 13 month board is sad and empty. It’s all a ways away yet, but I can’t avoid thinking/planning. I’m thinking sapphire blue, light green (the colour of green hydrangeas) and white. I’m not going to bother with coloured chair ties or any of that. The venue we have chosen really doesn’t need much decor, which is a huge plus!

My “colors” are Ivory and Peacock feathers, like actual peacock feathers lol. It’s driving Future Mother-In-Law crazy, she can;t quite wrap her head around it 😛 She’s having such a hard time finding a dress, she doesn’t know what color to get. I keep telling her; if the color os in a peacock feather, then your good to go! Here are some of my inspiration pics 🙂

Our wedding is going to be at this really cool old white church at a pioneer history museum here in Arizona.  I wanted to keep the whole rustic theme without going pioneerish so we are going to have a lot of pine cones and evergreen.  Also, I fell in love with this centerpiece, so red will be our main color with white, green, and brown as accent colors..pine cones and candy canes!!  Laughing

@amberfl:  Thank you! It took me a little while to get it all together after sifting through (seriously) hundreds of pictures! It really is a great tool to get your vision across to vendors instead of my typical back and forth blabbering! haha

I am having a difficult time choosing my colors. There is a giant Christmas tree in my reception room decorated in apple green and bronze-orange so that is factoring into my color decision.  Because the reception room is small and the tree is so large I have to choose colors that compliment the green and bronze. Here are some of the color combos I’m considering:

Dark blue, gray/silver with accents of apple green

Dark teal, eggplant and silver.

Gray, silver and apple green

What do you guys think?

We’re really not doing the Christmas thing…. Though we shall see what the venue decides to go with. I’m not sure we have a theme per se, but definitely playing off the vintage/historic vibe of our venue. Our colors will be navy and copper, with lots of pearls and crystals featured in the the decor. We may or may not choose to include my collection of historic mortars and pestles (we’re pharmacy students…).

Our date is December 21st. We’re going with a green and brown color theme. Those are my two favorite colors (and Fiance likes them as well). Also, I love chocolate, so the idea that a chocolate fountain can also play into our color scheme is pretty exciting!
