Wedding Color Crisis
Posted 20 February 2009 - 03:45 AM
My wedding colors so far have been chocolate brown and blue, but all that people have seen so far are STDs and invitations.
My bridesmaids are wearing brown, and I pictured us all having super vibrant bouquets (orange, fuchsia, and lime green or something). Those colors don't go with blue and brown at all!
So now I don't know what to do. Should I change my colors? I haven't bought too much yet...mostly just DIY stuff like ribbon, so I wouldn't be out a ton of money if I switched. The only problem is that if I switch to something like orange and brown, it suddenly becomes a lot harder to find things like favors in appropriate colors (I also have a bit of a starfish theme).
Should I change my bouquet idea? I'm not sure I could even do brown and blue flowers b/c I'll be using fresh, local Costa Rican flowers for the most part (and I'm not sure I'd even want a blue bouquet!).
Should I just not match? I could emphasize the brown more than the blue, and brown goes with everything, but I feel like everything might still look terrible.
So...help! I feel like a total idiot :S

Some brides tend to match EVERYTHING, but I think this is overkill. The best is not matching the color precisely. It's about coordinating. Think about your brown and blue as backdrop colors that makes your accent color pop

There is an entire thread dedicated to this which should help you get some ideas before you change everything.:
IMHO, if people have already seen your invites and STD's then you should be somewhat consistant with your theme.

The thing is, I really don't want a white or blue bouquet! I really have my heart set on something bright and funky, and it's hard to totally change the image in my head.
The problem I have with just leaving the flowers as-is, is that there won't be any blue or brown whatsoever in the bouquet, so there won't be an element tying it all together. I was also originally planning on buying my bridesmaids some brown and blue jewelry, but now I'm not so sure it'll look good.
Maybe I'll try to find a bouquet I like online, and then I can use photoshop or something to do some color tests. I think the brown will work great...it's just the blue that's making this all a bit tricky :S

I think you should do a coral color for flowers, since it is more of a muted pastel, like the lighter blue you are using. Plus...it incorporates your starfish, since they are the same coral color!
