    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...)?

      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 :-)

              funny how everyone used brown, my parents did back in the 70's too. Things come full circle

              my colors are burgandy (David's Bridal calls it Chambord), Sage Green and Ivory.
              My BM's dresses are burgandy
              FI is wearing all black tux with ivory tie
              GM's wearing all black tux's with burgandy ties
              colors printed on invites are burgandy and green
              centerpieces are candles in all three colors
              etc. etc.

                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).

                Also, check these out:

                  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
