To use wedding colors or not...

Recommended Posts

We're getting married in Feb and our colors are pink and green. My FILs are throwing us a reception in Oct or Nov. What are you opinions on using the wedding colors for the reception? Part of me likes it so its consistent but the other part thinks it'll look silly to have a pink/green reception in Canada in Oct/Nov. Another small part of me loves the idea of doing fall colors so I can get the best of both worlds and "milk" the situation for all its worth....

Hmmm... I am a bit torn on this one.

 

While I love the idea of 'getting the best of both worlds'; I also love the romance of using the same colors for your AHR as your wedding as it incorporates the same feel as your DW. Is there any way you could use the pink and green as accents; and incorporate some darker greens and/or browns as your primary colors to give it a more fall type look for Canada in the fall?

I agree with Megan. I'm viewing my AHR as a distinct event not meant to recreate the wedding, though I am still incorporated some of my colors and beachy themes into it. Go for the best of both worlds, or pick one of the two colors to use sparingly if you feel the need to have some sort of tie-in if you feel using both wouldn't loook right.

I say do the same for both! It will be consistent, and you can then work those colours into your thank you's and other things too. I don't think that bright colours are bad in the fall, WHEN you are celebrating a DW... and in the dreary Canadian Fall/Winter - end of Oct/early Nov... everything is mud... it would be refreshing to have bright colours!

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
