No theme here. My colors are maroon, charcoal grey, and blush pink. Take out the silver color from the below photo and those are the colors!

No, that’s fine. You can have both a theme and colors. We’re doing a modern vintage-y romantic theme (I guess? haha) with blush pink, grey, whites, black, metallic champagne, and burlap.

I’ve personally never been to a wedding with a true “theme.” And that’s out of about 20 weddings in the last three years. I had my colors and my general vibe/look that I was going for, and that worked great for me.

My theme is “we’re getting married” and my colors are lightish blue, bright orange, and grass green.

I will be having both themes and color. As mine is a colorful theme, I thought it will be overwhelming and hence, I scaled down the color theme. And also, I figured more uniform colors will make for nicer pics. 🙂

Well, if you pick a theme, chances are that’s going to include colors.


I’m doing an autumn theme, which means autumn colors…

We had a general color palette and general theme but neither were that strict. My BMs wore blush, sage green, and gray, the guys wore gray suits, there were a lot of gold, blush, and green touches in the decor, but really a lot of color… To be honest, I am not a big fan of weddings with one MAIN color or two colors. I think weddings with a little bit broader palette appear much more natural and are more visually appealing. Your color palette sounds beautiful! Go for it!

With regard to the theme… I’ve been to a couple themed weddings. The best ones were understated – there were enough elements to tell you that there was a theme, but you didn’t THINK about it that much… Does that make sense?

@chronicwhimsy:  I think you can have both honestly. My fiance and I are using soft pinks, ivory, and navy blue to go with out vintage theme. Cool

I think you can do both, if you have an idea in mind, don’t worry about what others might think, its your day!

For our wedding, we are doing jewel tones (predominantly purple) and peacock feathers. 🙂

@chronicwhimsy:  Deep red, chocolate brown, golden burnt yellow, burnt sienna (pumpkin), ivory…and possibly green


But at the moment, my girls’ dresses are deep red; they will be carrying circus roses.

I am wearing ivory (duh lol) and carrying red roses


The cake has fall leaves down the side and a red ribbon around each tier. It is white buttercream.


That’s really all I got so far decoration-wise. I’m just going with “Fall.” “Really Fall.” lol.


I’m not very concerned.

I think fall colors will kind of create the autumn theme but it doesn’t have to. My cousin did a “fall” theme for hers but she really incorporated the leaves/pumpkins/tree branches into the decor.

We don’t really have a theme, just coordinating colors. We’re doing red, white, and black with white/black damask accents.

i think a range of fall colours is just fine. Haivng a fall theme and all the fall colours is perfect! You will though have to pick a few dominant colours thought for your BMs dresses, flowers etc…
