My colors pretty much came to me after I saw the venue and considered the time of year.

My wedding venue looked across a harbor at a mountain covered in fall foliage. So, our primary color was orange and then we had reds, yellows, and greens mixed in.

The bridesmaids were in navy as a neutral so their flowers would pop against the dresses.

Most of our printed material ended up being in the “neutral” navy so I guess our main colors were orange and navy.

Im doing a navy blue/ kiwi green… Im going to have hits of our fd in the wedding. Our uniforms are Navy blue so the dresses will match the gyys, and Kiwi green (we lime green trucks)

  • Wedding: December 2012

I’m getting married just a few days after Christmas so I wanted to avoid Red and Green. I wasn’t into a winter themed wedding so I wanted to avoid Silver, Blue and those combinations. I went searching online for color schemes and was extremely drawn to the colors of the peacock feather theme. I knew I didn’t want pastels because it would be winter time here but I wanted something lively. I’m doing teal with navy and hints of purple and blue.

The best place to start is to list what colors you don’t want and go from there.

I second about the venue site…

We are getting married in a marina, so we are having a nautical theme with our colors as Navy Blue, White, and Pink

I thought of some adjectives for how I wanted my wedding to look: modern, elegant, classic, clean, etc. I also really wanted to use red roses, so I settled on black and white with red accents. Our venue was pretty neutral, but we tied it in with some dark pink lighting (the red would have been too harsh, I think).

I also thought about what color I envisioned for the tuxes and bridesmaids dresses–that’s a good place to start! I browsed photos on sites like Project Wedding and The Knot and bookmarked all of my favorite looks. From there, I looked at what I’d picked and noticed that most of what I liked was in the same color scheme/theme. There are so many inspiration photos out there, look around and see what you like!

I started by thinking of the time of year, then what are our favorite colors.  The idea of getting rid of any you DON’T want is a great one, at least a place to start.  I’m lucky, my Fiance looks fantastic in black and white, we can just go from there.  I also want any  dress to complement my Maid/Matron of Honor – we’re pretty set one only a Maid/Matron of Honor and Bridesmaid or Best Man – which helps to steer a color choice too. 

Good Luck!

Our theme is going to be quite Michael Jackson inspired as we’re both fans and met because of this. Our colours are going to be our favourite colours – mine being yellow and his being blue 🙂

@jdpuddlesjr: If you like them, go for it!  Friends of mine have done a rainbow of pastels, or bright bold colors, I’ve seen pictures of rainbows of neons too.  I think it’s 100% a-ok

@jdpuddlesjr: You definately could use multiple colors!
