I am still trying to figure out colors myself....
Thanks for the suggestion, murmel....I've decided to go with lime green. I'm excited to have made another "final" decision. :-)

Thanks Amy....lime green it is.

Congrats on selecting the big day! FI and I also recently booked for July 23, 2011!!
Bigbop, I think we're in similar stages of planning... I sent out my STDs, too!
I'm going to try and post a pic of our STDs below! The color is not exact because of the bad lighting, but you get the idea.
So sorry to hear about all the drama. My heart goes out for you.
As for colours, I agree with most of the blue/green suggestions. Light green or bright blue could look great with a burnt orange.
Thanks Beaz, this too shall pass. I'm going to take your suggestion and go with a light/lime green. I looked at those two together on theknot and they caught my eye the most, although I did love the aquamarine color too. So MANY decisions! Green it is though!

Thanks Amy! She was and then she fell off. I honestly think she doesn't want to contribute to our wedding and rather than just communicate that, she has become dramatic and irrational. My parents are divorced and since I am a grown woman with a career, I didn't expect them to contribute to the costs of our wedding. My Dad volunteered to assist us with a small percentage and FI's Dad sent us a check for the rehearsal dinner. Once we talked openly in front of her about finances and their contributions, she became indifferent about the wedding. She has not returned my calls, emails, or texts in 3 weeks, so needless to say, I don't even know what the "real" reason is. It hurts not to have talked to her in 3 weeks and I don't even know what I did or said wrong, but it is what it is. I wish there was more to story and then I could justify her being mad about something, but even as I type this out it all sounds sooooo silly to me. I've prayed about it and I'm releasing it. :-) Thanks for your kind words though.

I'm a Federal Agent, but normally just refer to myself as a Cop because it just sounds so condescending and formal, which is not me at all. I don't like it, but I started young and have 14 years left until retirement, so I just focus on the sliver lining. I also feel bad complaining about a job in this economy when so many are without.

Thanks gingerlover. I hope she does too, because I only plan to do this once!
