Fiance and I went to a friends wedding… it was overwhelming. They’re entire venue was purple, like they even tinted the lights to be purple at the reception, so it made the space look purple.
I’m clearly not offended, I know purple is overused but I’m not about to exclude my favorite color from my wedding just due to it being popular. Its popular for a reason. I’m excited to see the purple with the tan. Groom and his men will have tan tuxes, bridesmaids will have purple dresses and I’ll probably do really simple flowers with only a hint of purple. We’re also going to use burlap for decorations (not sure how yet) but that way the tan is still incorporated. We live in a rural area and wanted to have that “rustic” feel, but keep it elegant and not like redneck, country.

I’m bored of super neutral classic colors like taupe/ivory/grey/black/etc. Personally, I love colorful bridesmaid dresses and flowers! Mine are a bright dark red. All those beachy wedding colors like coral and aqua have my heart!

Blush… although a very pretty color I feel like EVERYONE is using that color.

I started the outdated trends thread and not sure why people are so offended. Anyways, I agree with you about how some colors look pretty together, but it just gets old. Blush, cream, white, etc. I went to an event for all the major wedding planners and florists in my town and I overheard them say “If I have to plan another cream and blush wedding, I don’t know what I’m going to do”. I imagine it’s a little annoying that these people are very creative and have lots of ideas, but can’t act on them because their clients all want the same thing. They even get together once a year and put on their own event where they can showcase their talents in an effort to let their creativity flow. Google “green wedding shoes the jam” and you’ll see the photos. I think there’s another event called the Cream Event that is essenitally the same thing.
But the color I really don’t like is full blown pink. I personally don’t like pink and when I see it all over weddings, it looks like a baby shower for a girl.

It sounds like most of us choose colors based on what our favorite is. Did most of you pick the color scheme that is in your house if you have a color scheme there. I definitely noticed I did and I was afraid I was being too boring with my choices. But when it comes down to it I want my wedding to look like a wedding so I’m ok with boring predictable colors.
Blush and gold or blush alone is absolutely beautiful and I think years to come it will still be gorgeous. There is a reason it’s so popular! But right now it is the cookie cutter wedding color scheme for sure. Like others said it’s not ugly it’s just predictable and not unique and some of us don’t care about being totally unique. I know I don’t care because I really prefer classic wedding style, but it is refreshing when I go to or see a wedding with unique approaches and schemes I would never choose.
So glad many of you chose to be positive with this and have fun with it and we can all get along. Thank you for being adults!

When it comes to my house, I’m super neutral with a rustic feel. I guess my wedding was the place to go bold with colors since it’s only for a day lol.

I think wedding colors also tend to vary based on what region they are being held in. I see blush weddings everywhere on the bee or Pinterest but have never seen blush used in any wedding that I have personally attended. The same can be said for gold chiavari chairs, people in my area just don’t use them so while my wedding may look “cookie cutter” to a lot of bees, it definitely won’t look like the standard rustic weddings that are extremely popular in my area.
I do have to admit the recent blush hate had me feeling down for a few days. While we really don’t have a set color scheme we are using blush tablecloths and gold accents lol! Our venue has some very unique walls and most colors would clash big time. I thought about doing white but all of our florals and centerpieces are also colorless so I felt like some color needed to be incorporated somewhere. A subtle blush just so happened to meet all of the criteria.

When you say someone’s wedding colors are boring, you are absolutely trashing their choices. No matter how many cute little disclaimers you type.

i’m confused. are you tired of seeing red at weddings. or is just not a color of your choice but liked that your brother used it.
but i’m not tired of any color. i’ve been to enough weddings but they are all unique with their own spin, even if using a similar color palate.

Having an opinion about a color is not the same as trashing someone else’s choices.

I’m doing burgundy & navy with pops of mauve/blush/gold – which is totally overdone so I don’t have a whole lot of room to talk!
I’m falling in love with deep jewel tones like dark teal/emerald, and I almost wish I had gone that route.
As for what I don’t really love, I’d have to go with any bright or vibrant color and/or silver.

I have blush because I love pink tones and blush is soft and romantic. But it’s everywhere all the time. However blush is really me, so I don’t think I’ll mind that my wedding has a boring color scheme, as long as it goes with my personality. People would feel weirder if my wedding doesn’t have pink! Although I’m probably making it more candy pink or dusty rose rather than blush.
I’d love to see more use of sage/olive green. I think they’re pretty and underused. And earthy colors too.

I don’t like the blood red color used in weddings. I don’t like blush on bridesmaids. While purple is my favorite color, bold purple in weddings bothers me.
