@Everyone who commented on the photo I posted: 

Thanks!  I absolutely LOVE the photo and I fully intend on using it as my main inspiration piece (adding some personal touches, too) for our wedding and reception.  I was hoping Dutch would love it, too! 

Again, go for it!  The colors are phenomenal and I’m sure you’ll love it!  Smile

Go for it!  I think you need/want to maybe you can add some lighter shades of magenta or purple to make it a bit more spring-ish.  Maybe for a jr. bridesmaid or flower girl?

I’m of the same opinion as you.  Who cares what colors you’re “supposed” to have.  do what you want.  i think your colors and your vision are gorgeous!

I think it’s a great combo!!!! I’m getting married in November and although we planned our color scheem of dark brown and ivoy/cream before the date, I am constantly getting suggestions that I should do this or that with the fall colors, esp my flowers. Just because I’m getting married in the fall, doesn’t mean I want a fall themed wedding!!! Just tell them that… getting married in April doesn’t mean you have to have a spring themed wedding.

I think they look great together!  Nothing you do is going to make everyone happy.  Just remember its YOUR wedding and not theirs!

@DutchBride21  I wanted the girls to wear brown dresses (truffle) but 1 of my BM’s found out she was pregnant and DB discontuned their maternity dresses. They had a few left in clearance but only had lilac. So the girls are wearing lilac (and the guys are wearing brown tuxes)

  • Wedding: October 2010

Go for it!

I’m getting married in October and everyone keeps expecting me to have a ‘fall’ color scheme, but I am totally not interested it in.  I’ve been to so many fall weddings recently, and I don’t want red, orange, gold and brown.  Instead I’m having peach, pink and pale blue.  Why?

1.  I like them.  And it’s our wedding.

2.  After your wedding the pictures will be what remains.  People will see my pictures and (hopefully) say that they are beautiful.  They may not know what time of year my wedding was, and it does not matter.  The wedding is one day, but I wouldn’t want to have orange photos just because of that day!
