This is a bit of a vent but I’d also like to hear some opinions. So my fiance and I decided to go with chocolate brown and magenta for our wedding colors. His favorite color is brown. Our wedding date is April 2, 2011 and in the evening. I’ve been getting a lot of lip from people saying these aren’t spring colors. For one I’m not one to adhere to what is supposed to be the norm and two its an evening event that’s going to have a lot of glamour. I’ve attached a picture of the color theme to give you an idea. I don’t think we have to do light colors or typical “spring” colors just because the wedding is in April especially since its more of a black tie evening event. Just curios to get some objective opinions.

WOW! Those colors look amazing!!! Don’t change them at all. As far being “spring” colors…well I think those color combinations are great for any season ESP SPRING

You’re totally right. There’s nothing to say that you can only do spring colours if you’re getting married in spring. I think your palette looks amazing and so appropriate for a black tie event!

I think that looks great. Run with it, and ignore the people who complain!

I love your color choices and I think they are perfect for a formal spring wedding. They will really pop, and you will be able to do a lot with them. For those that are saying they aren’t spring colors, I think you should tell them to look around at nature during the spring.

I think it will be great together. Formal and nice- perfect for the evening. I’m assuming your flowers will be the shades of deep magenta to pink as shown in the flowers on the picture, it will look awesome. Never mind what people say, it is your wedding.

Thank you sooooo much everyone! I really appreciate your opinions. I was on the verge of tears this afternoon to the point of saying I would rather elope. My FH is super sweet and all he asked was for brown to be part of the color theme because it’s his favorite color and after that he has basically let me have my way. We discuss everything but he goes with what I want. So this afternoon when my sister turned up her nose at it I just felt so hurt and I started to second guess myself. Gosh this wedding planning is turning out to be much more emotional than I anticipated it would be!

I say GO FOR IT! I’m a tad biased because we have narrowed our color schemes to two and magenta/chocolate/purple is one of our choices. So of course, magenta and chocolate work just as well, IMO! I love the combo – so rich and romantic!
The photos you posted are gorgeous! Here is the single photo that completely abolished my original theme (I found it on a Google image search so if anyone here happens to deserve credit, credit is given):

I love the colour combination. I don’t see how those colours wouldnt fit for a Spring wedding, although I personally am not one for saying a colour belongs to a certain season. I think that if you love the colours, go for it- regardless of seasons.

People don’t really abide by “seasonal colors” anymore, it’s much more about you these days, and I think it’s a lovely color scheme :o) GO FOR IT!
