Wedding colors & uses

Recommended Posts

Ok, there's probably a thread on this somewhere, but I'm losing steam (bedtime), so I'm going to throw this up here anyway...


What are you guys using for your colors (as the primary and secondary colors) and where/how are you using them in the wedding (dresses, flowers, table linens, invites, menus, programs, placecards, etc...)?

I'm using Chocolate Brown (primary), Lime Green and White.

BM-Dresses Brown

Table runners- Brown (on white linens)

Cake (if I have one) Chocolate Brown)

Flowers lime green- cymbridium orchids, green buttons (for FG's); white- giant calla lillies (my Bouquet).

Stationary- Brown with accents of green (similar to my monogram)

I ended up using chocolate brown as well, and deep red and ivory!


Chocolate Brown was used for cake and the writing on my favours


Deep Red was used for my bridesmaid dresses, as ribbon on my favours, as candle holders, as my flowers and as accent ribbon on my dress


Ivory was used as my table runners, my wedding dress, bridesmaids flowers, and my hubbie and groomsmans shirts!

Our wedding colors are ivory, olive green and a touch of blue.. Cain's wedding shirt is ivory, the pash's that Glenda found are olive green, I have green C. Orchids and ivory roses in my bouquet. Pretty much everything is either ivory or green. The blue will be our cake (Cain's idea, don't get me started in it :-)

I am not using my colors too much since I am not having a bridal party or much for decor, but I will use them in invites and STDs, on the website, etc. My colors are blues and greens, w/a hint of fucshia (I can never spell that).

I'm not using my colors as much either, but my main color is fuschia, I'm still making decisions, but I think my secondary color is going to be white.


bm dress (our daughter) is light pink (because thats the only color we could get) but she will carry bright pink flowers


I will also carry bright pink flowers


Fuschia & white parasols


Fans with Fuschia ribbon


centerpieces - haven't made a decision yet, but probably some bright pink & white flowers, maybe with a touch of orange, not sure


Invitations, have some pink on them, but my invitations are very simple
