We have ALMOST the same colors but I bet our weddings will be completely different We are using royal blue, ivory and touches of silver for a winter wedding. Do you know what bridesmaids dress you will be using? 

We had to go with blue for the same reason, basically the only color we could agree on. 

I bet your colors will be beautiful, I was just at Michaels, they are putting out a bunch of blue and yellow items in the dollar bins. Might be good for Bridesmaid or Best Man gifts, thank you cards etc.

I am going with raspberry and blush for my ceremony and then the blush with celadon for my reception at my August wedding.  I originally wanted light green dresses for my ‘maids, but it just did not look that great with the dress blue uniforms the guys are wearing.  I actually got my color scheme from the special Martha Stewart Weddings mag last summer. 

My Fiance wanted gold to go with the accents on his uniform, but he’s getting pink (and as long as at the end of the day he gets me, he’s OK with that).

I think your spring colors sound lovely!

Bright blues/teals/aquas + lime green/chartreuse + gold and bamboo accents. We’re going for super fun, but classy and somewhat relaxed. I really love our colors.

Here are the colors of the pocket folders and envelopes from cardsandpockets.com. The pocketfolder is in Meadow and the envelopes are caribbean (they don’t have pictures of the envelopes, but that’s the right color).

Like the first 2 of you, we are using blue, but it will probably be completely different as well.  We’re using Lake blue and champagne/gold for a vintage summer (july) mountain wedding.  We selected gold to play off my yellow-champagne engagement diamond and my gold wedding dress. 

One of the boards I’ve used for inspiration is here:

  • Wedding: June 2008

We got married in June 21st (the first day of summer) and wanted to use colors that were earthy and summery.  So we used Sunny yellow, buttercup, ivory, white and a medium/dark green.  It was very fresh and happy for our classic summer wedding!  Here’s an example from our bridal table (sorry it’s kind of dark).  BTW I love your colors as they are.  Pink might take away from the earthy colors that you are already using.  It will be beautiful!!

I really wanted blue too… possibly blue and green together.

But I just got back from a meeting with my florist and she said that blue would definitely not work in the the room where I’m having my reception. So I’m doing black, champagne and pink instead. So lonnnng, blueeee…

He is die hard USC fan and my favorite color (after pink – which my daughter and best friends HATE) is red – so red and gold it is – it makes it easy and nice as we are hoping to get married at USC and even if we don’t, I like that I can take his passion and put it in our wedding – that is if my family doesn’t totally drive me insane and cause me to just run off and do it in Vegas!
