BEES! I AM FED UP WITH COLORS!!!
I like waaaaay to many color schemes, and yes i have been over this time and time again. I am at a loss. 🙁
I liked the navy and orange but it looked to football teamish. LOL.
I like navy and pink but mother says its not “Fall” UGH!
Then I liked Plum,Burgundy and Ivory…well my sister in law (whom I despise) used a shade of purple…and now i cannot agree on this (even though my shade would be deep plum)…I wont even be using purple dresses…I was thinking dark gray with this color scheme. I cannot shake the fact she used this color. ICK!
I have tried the perfect palette and nothing catches my eye.
I tried using our favorite colors (black and blue) but thats so dark and not “fall”
Please help me!! I am so desperate!!! Did you guys go with what looked good or your favorite colors?? I am so torn.

What about navy and orange with pops of pink, to soften your “football team” feeling.. (which I don’t see but if you do, add another color)

@peachbaby4008: we’re in september and are using neutrals for overall decor, mint for dresses and some here and there, a few sprigs of pale peach and grey suits. I wouldnt worry about the season, who cares, your pictures are what I would think about. What do you want to look back on, your favorite colors that make you happy on the greyist of days or that you chose an appropriate scheme for the season? I vote favorite and slap those doubting debbies!
Also have you tried going to a fabric store or a paint dept and picking out a few swatches you like? I found this helpful and then you can take them into certain light, take some photos and see how you really feel about them.

I’d try to get past the purple disposition just because your SIL used it. Way too manys shades of purple that are too gorgeous to pass up! Our wedding is in February and our colors are going to be lavander, charcoal, and champagne. The plum, burgundy, and ivory sounds gorgeous- i’d go with that.

I think orange and navy will only look football teamish if you use a bright orange. Try a softer hue of orange instead. Very fall if you ask me 🙂

I’d try and get over the fact that the colors aren’t “season” friendly, or that someone else used them. We’re doing purple and teal and my wedding is the day before yours. Choose what you love, what screams out to you and your fiance.

@peachbaby4008: Just do navy and orange. It sounds like you like it and with the right third accent color, it won’t look too football teamish. Especially if you use a softer orange or peach instead of the color crayon orange used by sports teams.

I am obsessing over the navy and softer orange in the bouquet. I hear all the time my colors are football too, but they are my favorite and you should go with what YOU like!

how about lavender, navy and a third fall accent color, soft yellow, coral, look to nature for the 3rd color.
You could do navy dresses, purple flowers with the 3rd accent color.
Or accent color dresses, navy suits and shades of purple for flowers.

Ok I see since your from illinois how the Navy and Orange can be so Da Bears…. But if you blend it with some golds and even red orage / reds I think it would be beautiful for your fall wedding! Navy and Orange are our colors (being in minnesota we dont have a team to comapre it to!) and i find that we are really focusing more on the Navy & Grey with little pops of orange which is really working for us!

What do your invitations look like? You could always go with that color scheme…
P.S. I wanted blue and orange for my color scheme too, but when I ran it by my mom she asked, “Are you planning to get married at Citi Field?”

What about grey and orange and ivory? You mentioned liking the thought of grey dresses for your bridesmaids…would look nice

@avonleaR: This is exactly what I have been telling people..but i guess i just dont listen to myself! I always say its a wedding “Not a fall celebration”! 😀
I have gone to the fabric store…and still nothing. Maybe I am meant to have a good ole fashioned black and white wedding 🙁
@Ohhavok: I agree with you. Its so sad that i have given up on purple…its such an awesome color that looks amazing in the fall 🙁 Ugh!
@MissXray: This is a great board!! 😀
@CorvusCorax: I dont have invites yet 🙁 I have done anything because of this dilemma!
Oh this is so sad! :(((((
