    How did you pick your colors???  We started with red and black, but FI didn't like that because our wedding is in the summer, he said to make it brighter.  So red and Turquoise

    Was this a simple task?  Yes once I made a decision and committed to it

    Were you and FI/DH in agreeance? Originally no, he couldn't visualize it so I we and bought the colors in cardstock and then he was on board.

    How did you pick your colors??? I always love the serenity of green specifically sage and I wanted a bright color to represent a tropical feel so I chose mango orange.
     Was this a simple task? It wasnt to hard.  I went to the fabric store and bought sample fabric to see if it would work and I loved it.

    Were you and FI/DH in agreeance? FI is the whatever you like I like decision maker so I guess you can say he was in agreeance.

    I agree there is something beautiful about green. The eastern tradition of Feng Shui says that green represents life, vigor, renewal, and youth. The color of nature. I think this is a wonderful color to choose for a wedding. My colors are hunter green and gold.

    FH accepted the colors I picked. Once I told him the meaning behind the colors I choose he was onboard.

     I picked the main color which is teal based on a shoe, LOL I added the cream and the champagne as an accent color because i think they will be beautiful together

    Was this a simple task?
    No, because I went through tons of colors

    Were you and FI/DH in agreeance?
    Yes, he is on board with our colors.

    We went on The Perfect Pallette website. We picked several inspiration boards that we liked. We narrowed it down to like 6. Then he told me to pick. So, I did a poll on here. lol

    Was this a simple task?
    Very!

    Were you and FI/DH in agreeance?
    Yep, because we both picked ones we liked, so in the end, no matter which scheme we picked, we both liked them.

    At first we were then when we decided to change colors nothing seem to come together. In the end we both picked ones we liked.
