How did you ladies decide on your wedding colors? I don't know what color I want?!

I just picked the color that most represents the feel of my wedding. That is Teal. I love the color purple but didn't feel beachy enough for me.

Our favorite color is green...so we are doing a lime theme. That way, we can use actual limes (abundant in Mexico) for decor as well.

 

Mishka Designs does a blog with color palette inspirations: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t30686

 

Also, the Knot has picture albums of weddings in every color - flip through and see if one really catches your eye.

I wanted to find colors that wouldn't be too feminine and that would fit in well in an island location. Mine are teal and green, they actually help when I finally decided on a theme for my wedding!!

Ours are fuschia, aqua, and a little bit of lime. We actually chose our colors with a color palette. I wanted my FI to love the colors as much as myself. He didn't really care much, so I went through a bunch of palettes and picked the ones I really liked and then asked him which was his favorite. I actually really wanted red and lime, but he didn't like it and chose the fuschia and aqua. Her is a search of Martha Stewarts palettes: Martha Stewart - Search

 

You can go through all of these, or if you click on the Weddings tab, on the side there is a link for color palettes. Click that and then you can go through each color and it will list links w/ these colors, they'll have Color Palettes links with a color following, such as Perfect Palettes: Emerald and Aqua and then will give you several pics w/ favors, set ups, etc w/ these colors. Hope that may help you! Good Luck!

I know I want something bright and festive. But I also want to make sure I pick a color that will be easy to find a dress for my MOH. I want her to be cute but comfortable! I'm going to check out the sites you listed and see what I come up with! Thanks girls!! smile03.gif

My favorite color is pink. I actually purchased an ivory dress with pink accents first. The more I thought about it, it didn't feel "festive" or "beachy" enough for my vision.

 

I chose aqua and turquoise for an ocean pallet and it ended up being perfect!

I had to laugh when I read this. I had a struggle with this issue and particularly with my mom. She was he!! bent on pink and green becasue I've always loved those colors but I thought it was a bit overdone in the last couple of years. So I just started flipping through magazines looking for what caught my eye.

 

I thought about the destination wedding and what I thought would look good in pics on the beach with the ocean in the background so I chose aqua and chartreuse/lime green. I figured they would work nicely becasue you see those colors in the ocean.

 

It's totally your choice because anything you pick will look beautiful
