I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!!
I always wanted a black, white and purple wedding. And my FI at first agreed to that theme. I loved it from the very beginning and was very excited to use it. Then my FI decided that he did care about the colors of the wedding and decided that our colors should be purple and red. I said “NO” from the very beginning, but he thought the color combination was pretty and that is was a good representation of us. I really love the color purple and my FI loves red. However, my favorite color is and always will be black. But for our summer wedding I do want a little color. So I conceded and our colors became red & purple. Even though every time I thought of the combination I thought of the Red Hat Society and nothing else. I tried very hard to make it work and talked with friends and my BMs about it and everyone politely said it could be very pretty and “You can make it work” but they also said it did remind them of those lovely senior women. I do think the colors together could be very pretty and I am in no way hating on anyone whose wedding is exactly that. But as for me and my wedding, I could not do it anymore. I don’t love it now and once I start ordering dresses and starting my DIY projects I am going to hate it even more. By the time my whole guest bedroom is full of red & purple wedding stuff I am going to want to cry! I will talk to my FI about this either today or tomorrow. Hopefully it goes well.
Here’s to RED, WHITE and BLING! (the hopeful new theme)
