Just keep it simple. Pick one or two colours, neutral / soft so it doesn’t clash with anything if you picked wrong. Pick colours that go well with your outfits. I didn’t think about colours until I’ve picked my dress. Even then, I’m only doing cream / champagne coloured flowers. Everything else is white / cream / timber, nothing I really need to pick or decide on really. If you’re not sure, stick to basics.

ETA: let’s be honest colour themes are not going to be the focus of your guests and they’re not going to remember in a months time what your theme was. They WILL remember having a good time, good food, good drinks etc. so don’t kill too many brain cells on the decor.

I’m doing light pink and navy. If you google “blush and navy wedding” you’ll get the idea. And I’ll have some gold and ivory accents. I honestly didn’t know what color scheme I was going to do and my fiancé said “hey how about these navy blue shirts for the guys?”  So I said ok, and went from there. Just kinda picked something and built on it. What do you like? Google some pictures of spring weddings for ideas and go with what you’re most drawn to. Have fun with it!

mrsandrews2020 :  I happen to like the color combination I put below. Reality is, you can do whatever colors you want. You don’t even have to coordinate colors with the season. My wedding is in the winter and my color scheme is watercolors and (a splash of) camo, because I like everything colorful and he likes camo. Google images can serve as inspiration, you can also use paint chips together to mix and match as you want till you make a decision.

We’re getting married this June. My dress is a champagne lace. Him and the groomsmen will be wearing various shades of grey. My girls have plum dresses. Our rings are rose gold so that is an accent color as well as little pops of green. May not all be matchy matchy but we love it!

Blush pink, pale gold and navy is beautiful

i don’t have official colours. They bridenaids with be in navy (but picking heir own dresses) and my bouquet (not much) will just be whatever is fresh in the market that day. Foliage  everywhere else. Keeping it simple. No idea what the guys are wearing yet but we’re not coordinating them.

mrsandrews2020 :  I am a firm believer in going with what you like and not worrying about if it matches. Pale pinks and blush is a great starting point, you don’t have to stick to “peony” rigidly. It’s fashionable to have a mix. It sounds like you’ve got great ideas with the gold and navy too. I started with a scarf with the colours I liked in it and it morphed in “bright autumnals”. But letting go of the exact pantone was liberating.

This site hasn’t been mentioned in a while, good for seeing combos together. http://www.theperfectpalette.com/

My fi really wanted to wear a royal blue tie, so that became our main colour since it was he who had to wear it. Why not ask your fi what he’d like to wear and go with that, if you’re not that fussed? 

I really wanted a bright yellow bouquet, so we added yellow as a complementary colour.

mrsandrews2020 :  I am getting married in Spring. Bridal party are all in navy. Flowers are ivory/ cream with splashes of yellow and lots of greenery. Bunting is botanical and light yellow. We wanted some pops of colour if it turns out to be a grey, drizzly day.

I went wild, haha. We are doing a garnet (deep brownish/purplish burgundy) and deep teal, and blush, with silver and ivory accents. 

It’s also tea party-themed with mis-matched china for the dinner ware. So it’s gonna be a colorful wedding, haha!

White&gold? Simple and can’t go wrong. You can add another additional soft colour of your choice smile

We are also having a spring wedding and we are doing a sort of rustic vintage vibe and I knew I wanted my girls in pink. 

The final pink color we settled on was the bridesmaids dress color. We went dress shopping early and I ended up getting a swatch of that fabric and planning my decor around it.

We knew we wanted an additional color so we went on Pinterest and then started seeing pink with mint and pink with turquoise and vintage-y things and found a few key decor items we really liked (vintage-colored vases which were a turquoise and a blush-ish pink) so we decided to include turquoise.

We then looked at colors that we could get for the men and chose a shade of turquoise based on the vests we are going to put the men in. I also got a swatch of that material and put it with my pink swatch.

So, I planned very specifically around my bridal party’s outfits. I still carry the two fabric swatches with me and gave an additional set of swatches to my decorator. 

______

If I were you I’d start with the bridesmaids dresses. Go have your girls try on dresses and find the style you like and see what shades of pink it comes in. Or, just have them try on different shades of pink and see which one you like best. You could also do multiple shades of pink.

I’d also start pinning things on pinterest that include pink colors you like and see what other colors people are pairing them with. That’s essentially how we landed on ours. I knew I wanted pink and vintage and then started seeing pink with mint and pink with turquoise and vintage-y things.
