    Here's the little swatch I cropped from Pinterest for our wedding colors.

    And we don't really have a theme, at least not in the David Tutera sense.  Our theme is getting married and having fun.

  • Our colors were a dark purple and deep teal. Our 'theme' was 'simple and elegant' which was basically another way of saying "the opposite of anything sparkly, pink, or 'rustic' that my sister would like"... ;)

  • Theme was wedding, colors were all of them. More specifically, brights (hot pink, teal, lime green, orange, yellow, purple). Our style was casual backyard summer party.

    My theme was "champagne, wine and roses". It was more "keep crazy bride lady on track of what she wants" than it was a theme. Nobody else would have known that was our theme. Our colors were ivory, champagne, wine, and gold.

    We didn't have a theme. No real colors either. My MOH is wearing purple. Everything else is white/silver/black. 

  • We're getting married in a cabin in the smokey mountains . . so we are going with woodsy/fall colors. I want to make the main colors green & chocolate brown .. with burnt orange accents here & there. . . 
    No theme really, I am a vintage soul, so my dress is lacey vintage, but I don't have a vintage "theme" or anything . . I guess my theme is wood. LOL since we will be surrounded by it, we will play it up for sure. :) 

    Here's a pic (among many, many others, lol) I've used for inspiration:

    No theme. Our feel is vintage/fun/romantic. Our colors are mint, gray, and lavender, similar to this:

    @april&;amanda I orignally wanted mint and a darker teal, but FI wanted the purple so we compromised and had my MOH wear the same dress as BM only in a dark teal.  The BM are wearing the mint. Lavender is just our accent color so the bouquets and bouts will have some lavender in them and the table numbers have some, but thats it. Its mostly mint and gray.

    Our wedding colors started as eggplant & sunflower and have become ALL the colors. We will have lots of purples, magentas, reds, greens, yellows and more. 

    We don't have a theme per se, but we're going for a bold, festive feel.

  • Our wedding colours were Yellow and Grey with a hint of Turquoise but have kind of turned to Yellow, Turquoise with a hint of Grey.

    Our reception will be at a resort on a lake so we are going for kind of a cottage chic feel.

    Champagne and coral. River rocks.
    What did you think would happen if you walked up to a group of internet strangers and told them to get shoehorned by their lady doc?~StageManager14

  • We have chocolate brown, sage green, and tulip yellow accents (because FI wants yellow tulips) as our colors but we don't really have a theme other than "getting married"

  • ;chibiyui - I just learned what the term 'steam-punk" meant the other day.  My florist shop friend did a wedding with this theme.  Very different and I liked the contrasting textures/colours.

    severmilli12 - Thank you for the idea - I am also doing grey and blue/green turquoise - but wanted to include purple as it is my other favourite colour.  I have been looking at including lavendar (the flower) in centerpieces etc - so the inclusion of your colour palette was a lovely visual display for me :) 

    I want to have a rustic/french vintage combo theme - I know very common right now.  But I like it.  I'm planning on my bouquet being mostly large white blooms (white peony, garden rose and tulips) with the lavendar accents.  

    Thank you!

  • Colors are navy, ivory, and blush. we don't have a theme- except when the florist saw my pictures, she called it "garden chic" so I guess that's our theme!

    I only have one main color (aqua) and then LOTS of coordinating colors... flowers and centerpieces will have peachy corals, dusty pinks, silvery green, mustard yellow, champagne, ivory, silver... basically this, plus the pinks and metallics. Decor will have a vintage-y vibe plus my dress is lace but it's not "vintage theme." Venue is a 100+ year old golf club with lots of dark wood, blues and greens so it all "goes."

  • We're doing a winter, New Years-y (Jan. 3rd) wedding, but our venue is a renovated bread factory, very industrial.  The BM dresses are the Sangria color from David's Bridal, so we're adding some grays and silvers to go with that.  Most of our flowers/decorations are wintery:  lantern centerpieces, lots of greenery, twinkly lights, etc.  I'm excited!
  • Our colors are going to be peach, champagne, blush, & "dusty mint" (is that a color name? That's what I call it anyways). No theme, however, I really think I may need to develop a "theme" similar to @tammym1001 to keep me on track!

  • My colors are royal blue and purple with silver accents.

    There's no real theme, more of a motif, as I'll be incorporating butterflies into some of the decor elements and the invitations which I designed myself.

  • Our colors are white, silver and black, with jewel tones (emerald green (leafy centerpieces), cobalt blue (the water glasses!), deep purple (my bouquet), and a variety of jewel tones for votive candle holders as escort cards, and menus on the tables). We're aiming for a feel that is cross between very formal, old-hollywood type of glamour and a fun party in a cool bar. The venue is very industrial and an art gallery, and it's in the city, so "urban" and "artsy" are kinda in there, too. :-)

  • Our colors are Tiffany blue, blush, and neutrals and our theme has a rustic/classic feel to it. 
  • Our colors are royal blue, silver, and fuchsia... But really it just means blue dresses for thr BMs, steel grey suits for the GM, and bright pink flowers! We'll have royal blue table runners, fuchsia favor bags at each setting, bright pink flowers in the centerpieces... And of course SILVERware ;) Our theme is wedding, with a hint of our love for movies and Disney. Our cake topper, guest book, grooms cake, garter, and table numbers will be movie related. Here is one of our inspiration pics
