Our wedding colors are blue, yellow, and orange.  My favorite color is yellow.  I was trying to decide between pink and orange and since his favorite color is orange I decided to go with that (plus it’s subtle hints of our alma mater with the orange and blue…Auburn!)

pink is also my favorite color… but we’re doing navy & yellow for our wedding colors… perfect for a classic, a little bit preppy, Michigan inspired, summer wedding on the lake!

My favorite color is blue.  We were originally going to use it in our color scheme, but decided against it.  Now that we used gold in our wedding colors, I’m actually liking it a lot lately.  I’ve usually been a white gold person, but I’m getting into gold a little.

Sort of both.  Blue has always been my favorite color, and I like shades of green.  I also like the color combination of chocolate brown with pastels.  Our wedding colors were chartreuse green and chocolate brown, and I find myself gravitating to those colors even more now.  Both our bathroom and living room are gradually starting to look like our wedding!  I’ve noticed other couples doing this, too.

I love pink but did not want a pink wedding, much to FI’s relief.  His fave color is blue, so we went with navy for the wedding.  We’re both very happy with how it’s all turning out!

my favorite colors are dark purple and yellow, and my Fiance likes gray.  The Bridesmaid or Best Man and Groomsmen are wearing gray, chartreuse accents(shoes, ties, some linens..) and deep purple flowers.  I don’t like the color pink either, so my Fiance was happy.  Now on the other hand my sister has everything, and i mean everything pink.  she told me she is making me wear a pinky fluffy dress for her wedding since i’m making her wear gray!  haha.

 

i find myself buying al this gray stuff!  for our registry!  we have gray towels, grey linens, gray blankets…it’s funny!

I’m seeing a lot of purple .. Well count me in.

My favorite colors are purple and green. Guess what my wedding colors were?! ๐Ÿ™‚ You bet, purple and green. Mr SoniPapdi didn’t know if he’d like it in the beginning .. but he said that it was my decision since it was "my wedding" .. thus I got my way. He liked it in the end when it all came together. ๐Ÿ™‚

My favourite color is purple, yet our wedding colors are yellow, green, and aqua. In all of the weddings I have attended to it was pink, purple, pink, red, purple, peach…you get the idea. I wanted something fresh and original.

Green has always been one of my favorite colors, but it was more coincidence that it’s our wedding color (plus b&w). We had a hard time with a march wedding for colors since it’s winter meets spring and could change by the day! I loved Green Hydrangeas and that’s what got us started. Also, Fiance would probably rather elope than be subjected to girly pink or purple, HAHA. If we had gotten married other places/times we probably would have reconsidered the winter/spring and gone with what was time/place appropriate there.

My favorite color is pink and FI’s is green…so our colors are pink and green. 

@Hobochic…your thread sort of gave me a panic attack!  You mentioned that you couldn’t put your girls in lime green, which is your favorite color.  My girls are totally wearing lime green, and most of them are really excited about it ๐Ÿ™‚ The dresses are going to be short…long lime green dresses would def be too much!  They’ll be offset with pink shoes and flowers.  I think they’ll be fun!!  What were your concerns about lime green?  I’m honestly just curious about factors that maybe I hadnt thought of!  If you could write back to me that would be great! ๐Ÿ™‚  Thanks!

My favorite color has ALWAYS been purple so everyone already pretty much knew it would be included in our wedding colors. I decided to add the green accents since it is in March and I’ve been loving the combination of purple and green. I would say I have been buying more green things as well since I am pretty much banned from buying anything purple unless it is for the wedding or clothes.

funny story about this topic actually– my mom recently told me that she purchased a dress she thought she might wear as her MOB dress 5 years ago (before I even knew my FI!!) in Navy blue because she was certain we would have blue in my wedding as it’s my favorite color!
