I used to jokingly yell “TRUST THE VISION!!” to my close family/friends that questioned when I talked about our wedding.

I think if you put together a mix of things you love, that’s the theme… and it will be fantastic!

Well, I for one think it looks like a very bright, cheerful, and fun wedding. 🙂 And you have no idea how great of a desire I have to hang a chandiler outside now!! Don’t let other people get you down, especially on a point like this, it is YOUR wedding, do something you like.

I think it will look great and the most important thing is that it’s YOU. There are no rules that say you have to stick to a two color scheme. Heck my wedding is lacking color if you ask me but that’s okay too, it’s all about what you want and I’m sure since you have a vision, it’s going to come together very nicely.

I love it.  I get a lot of confusion for not just picking two colors.  But my wedding is outside in a garden where there are already many different colors and I felt like I didn’t want to have just two colors.  So these are mine:

Oh and also, whatever other colors make their way in.  I know I am going to use blue Ball Perfect mason jars, for example.  I’m not so concerned with everything matching, just as long as it goes.  So maybe tell them that your wedding is elegant, eclectic, and whimsical and you are using various (muted) colors because you really like all the colors of (wildflowers).  (Inserted my own wedding scheme there, but you can replace with yours).  Hey, mine is vintage/romance/rustic/whimsical and so many other adjectives…sometimes I just tell people what colors the wedding party is wearing (the guys are in gray suits and the girls are in nude pink tones).  I like the “Trust the vision” quote, lol.

It looks so fun and awesome. I am the complete opposite. I like white and neutrals so I struggle with even one color for accent. I’d rather be in your position with all of them.  The only thing that I will say is that perhaps you would want to focus on a tone of colors so that it actually looks cohesive.  So for instance, I notice on your board you have a lot of “true” colors (the kind you find in a pack of Crayolas) and then pastels. If you stick to one tone of shades, then it will look thematic and not haphazard.

lol and i felt weird for onyl having one color – purple! where did the idea come from that we need two colors? i stressed for quite a while finally said my colors were purple and white, because thats just how it turned out.  then it turned into different shades of purple because i was loving so many dark purple things i saw, i didn’t want everything to be only lavender anymore!

so basically i think you should keep to what you want and just don’t talk about the wedding with people in real life!  everyone has ideas/opinions that are different from yours and it only hurts more to hear it from people you care about. i remember telling my Maid/Matron of Honor i want purple shoes and she looked at me like i was crazy. if i only listened to her, i would think the colored shoe idea is ugly and weird. and we all know its NOT!

I think weddings should represent the couple! If you love all colours (as do I), I would keep doing what youre doing!

If anyone asks the theme or colours, just say it is a surprise!

I really love your board. Why don’t you just tell people that you love all colors, so you are not constricting yourself to just two, and that although the decor may sound crazy to them now, trust that it will all make sense when they see it! I think people past a certain age have a really hard time understanding that the rules of weddings are very different now. If you want a chandelier from a tree, go ahead! I think that is very creative. The ideas you posted sound really fun.

I think others are confused because you are confused about how to explain it. Just tell them your theme is ‘happy rustic’ and you colors are happy colors like teal, yellow and pink (just to shut them up). And if you are getting strange looks about the chandelier, stop telling people. Make it a happy surprise.

It looks awesome. Take no notice. If people want to get picky over details because it’s not to their personal taste then let them. If you like it then go with it, it’s your wedding not theirs. Turn it around and remind them that if you did everything how THEY would want it, they would hate you for stealing their ideas.

I love to see weddings that are quirky/original, it gets a bit boring if everyone does the exact same thing. Yours looks like it’s going to be really colourful and fun. Stick with it 🙂

I love palettes with more than three colors. Weddings with three colors or less tend to get matchy-matchy and monochromatic. There is nothing wrong with that, but that is obviously not what you were going for and I think that’s awesome! I adore your inspiration board and think your wedding will be beautiful.
