I think thread was very fun! There is No need for anyone to take offense!
And to ask what people love to see, like someone suggested, and to ask what people are tired of is NOT at all the same thing. 🙂 This was a much more interesting angle of approach!
One can choose to have a blush pink wedding and be super unique within her circle of frends while some one else has been till 10 blush weddings and is tired of seeing it. It doesnt equal to that person thinking a blush wedding is ugly.
I actually AM very tired of blush weddings, as all the weddings i have been to lately has involved a ton of blush and they all look the same to me. Yet i love blush and might even pick that for my own wedding as it is an safe and easy choise, and I don’t think that I will ever feel “wtf did I think about”, like I might so if I go crazy to be different and do something that doesnt feel like “us” just for the sake of being unique. Yet I would feel very boring chosing that. We will see.

- Wedding: September 2017 - Poppy Ridge Golf Course
Must people get butt hurt over every little thing? Its just colors ffs. 🙄 Ivory, cream and lavender are a bit boring to me. Black for bridesmaids as well but thats the color everyone in my party was happiest with so black it was. I love seeing peach and mint green together.

I love the blush and rose gold trend, but I feel like it is going to date us so badly!!!
That and the mismatched bridesmaids look.
I wonder how we’ll feel about this all in a few years time 😀

I think every color scheme can look classy and timeless if properly done. I just can’t get with rainbow colored weddings but I LOVE colorful wildflower themes. I think over the top silver themes are fairly outdated but LOVE mixed metals. It’s less about the color scheme for me and more about how those colors were executed.

This thread should have been approached in a more thoughtful way.
I’m not sure I would ever classify any color as “boring”. There are certainly some colors I am drawn to and others I am not.
I love white/neutrals and don’t feel they will ever be boring or dated. I prefer muted colors over bright colors. I also love deep rich colors. My color preference isn’t only for weddings but colors I prefer in really any aspect of life.

Purple and teal–full disclosure our accent color was LIME green ahaha!!! Can’t help what you love!

I’m tired of really overt color schemes, especially when they’re not tied into the venue itself. There’s something almost corporate about it, to me.

I agree 100% or it just ends up looking like a kid’s birthday party. It was very tiresome to be asked by every single vendor: what are your colors? Or: what’s your theme?? My theme was wedding.

I love silver. Love it. But… it just doesn’t seem to translate well to weddings.

I dislike when flowers are obviously altered. Like we all know that they put food coloring in the water to make it that color. I prefer the natural colors.

Some people are tired of blush and that’s one of my colors and I’m not offended at all. It’s not going to stop me from having it so I don’t know why others would be offended either. It’s really not that serious! 😉
With that said, I’m really sick of Tiffany Blue at weddings

“overly corporate”, I get that! Kind of like everything has to be on-brand 🙂 The weird part is when it’s all minutely themed, but then has a glaze of just-picked, casually thrown-together, handmade, on top of it. The “frankly fake” 80s look has a certain innocence by comparison!
Not that fake-natural isn’t usually very beautiful, just saying, for the sensitive folk!

Well thanks for not being offended(!) See, I like the idea of yours. I think it’s less about the colour and more about how it’s done. I think at a wedding you will ideally walk in and think ‘oh, how lovely’ and that’s that. But some ‘themes’ are in your face and that will bother me no matter the colour.
I went to one wedding where it was all dark purple: Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, chair sashes, favour bags, cake boxes, centrepiece, bloody purple plastic diamonds on the tables, and so on. You just couldn’t move your head without more purple! I like the colour but that one reception was a little grating – simply because they didn’t mix it up with another colour.

I honestly don’t feel like I’m tired of any colors. Colors aren’t really a trend the way mason jars and photobooths are (not that I dislike them either!). I think as long as the colors are seasonably appropriate, it would be lovely.

I see Purple is a popular colour no matter the shade, Lilac or mauve. Purple is beautiful but over used.
