Are My Colors Too Wild?!?!?

Several people that I have decided to let in on the colors I have chosen for my BIG DAY says that they are not wedding colors and that they want fit my theme. This has seriously hurt my feelings. I love my colors and feel that I can make any color scheme fit my theme, because it is mine. By no means am I your typical bride and I didn't want to do typical wedding colors. Now it makes me question the people that told me they think that my colors will be pretty and summery?!?


Here are my colors:


Several people that I photo 3351887-1Several people that I photo 3351887-2Several people that I photo 3351887-3Several people that I photo 3351887-4Several people that I photo 3351887-5 with bling & silver accents and my theme is GLAMOROUS MONOGRAM (T&T--FI & my initials).


So my questions are--Are my colors too wild? Do you think I can make them work with my theme?

You can have any color you want, it's your wedding!!!

There's nothing wrong with having bright colors if that's what suits your personality - I'm still debating Fuschia & tangerine. The black is in the zebra print so it's only 4 different colors really! If it were me, I would only have accents of zebra and the other 3 as main colours, I'm not 100% sure about the lime & turquoise together but that might be because of being on my iPad, it might look different on another screen (opinions ladies??) but they both look lovely with the pink.

i LOVE color! so my motto is, everything works in moderation! i would hope that your girls arent going to wear all 5 of those colors on their dress, but if you have splashes of all of that, i dont see how you could go wrong! its not what i would choose for my wedding, but i totally admire people who can pull together tropical zebra punch like that!!

Here are the ideas for the dress, not the exact dress because my ladies will get to have a say if how their top will be but this is the basic concept.>>>

My men will have black tux with zebra print vest and turquoise or lime ties & bouts. Since my FI will not have a best man, he & my RB will have the hot pink ties. That will be the only Zebra Print in the ceremony. I will have some on my card box and my napkins will be zebra for the reception.

Nope! You can do whatever you want. If it looks good to you, that's *all* that matters. :)

I really am liking the BM dresses that you chose!  Very pretty.  I was in a wedding last year that was lime green and turquoise, so I believe those two colors definitely can work. 


Here are a few pics of inspiration:


I really am liking photo 3351917-1Source


For this particular pic, I would have circles on the top and the bottom of the tiers of the cake and you could add the fuschia and I think it would look great!


 


Here is one of our very own PW brides who did fuschia, orange, lime green and turquoise. So if you take out the orange, that would be your colors. 


I really am liking photo 3351917-2


I really am liking photo 3351917-3 You could add lime green crystals to the letters or even blue crystals


Here is her bio:  http://www.projectwedding.com/biography/list/FSUKristi


I would use the black as the minimal color other than the BM dresses.  HTH!

Thanks ladies! I was thinking of rethinking my color scheme. But as I have said before I am not the typical bride and I don't want to play it safe with colors, but the thought had came into mind to just use black & hot pink with silver accents. Now I am going to continue to plan with all my wild colors. I love them and my FI isn't complaining about them. So as long as he & I are happy with the colors I chose then we are going to be great! Once again thanks for all your feedback and extra push of confidence!

By no means am I your typical bride and I didn't want to do typical wedding colors. You are not a typical bride other than for the fact that you are a bride. Simple as that!  Don't let the nay sayers get you down. 


Your wedding!


Your choice!


Your colour!


Period!! 


Don't let the comments get to you.  I know it's hard.  You want people to embrace your ideas and be as excited about them as you are.  I have learned that no one is as excited about your wedding and your wedding decisions as you are.  It's a sad fact, but the truth.  


Follow your heart and if that is a colour choice that isn't well received well, too bad!  You plan your wedding your way.  You do not want to look back on your wedding day and know you didn't follow your heart with what you really wanted.  It will break your heart! 


People will always have comments and sometime downright nasty comments.  If you changed every element of your wedding that someone commented about you wouldn't even recognize your own wedding by the end of it all. 


Trust yourself, hon and follow your heart!

I really concur with what the ladies have all said before me: it is YOUR wedding. You can do whatever you want! At first we faced some opposition from my mom and I know that if this opposition  come from someone you love it can be really hard. My mom flat out told me I was being crazy and the idea was stupid.... stepping outside the box and having 4 colors (dark teal blue, sage green, dark brown, and cream).


You may just have to pull out in a respectful manner "I appreciate your input but this is our wedding. This is a celebration of us coming together. We want it to be representative of us. Please respect that," It wouldn't hurt to throw in the whole "You have already had your wedding/ When you have your wedding I promise to respect your desires." 


Best of Luck!

Haters to the left.  You rock those colors HARD girl!


You could always respond with, "Oh, if you think those aren't wedding colors, then I guess you aren't a wedding guest."  :)  If you wanted to get really mean!

I love the colors and I personally think there are SOOOOOOOOOOOOO many things you can do with a color scheme like that!!!!!! AND best part is when you look back in 20 years at your wedding, you will see a wedding that was truely your own wedding and not some product of the times :) 


I was inspired and started looking online at some ideas......

You'll get negative comments from everyone no matter what you do. My colors are pretty much the polar opposite of yours: white, ivory, grays, and nudes. Everyone is calling them "non-colors" and making (mostly good natured) fun of me. But I stuck to my guns, and now that projects are getting finished and I see everything coming together, I'm so glad that I didn't change my mind! I love my unique color palatte. And if you really love yours, go for it! People will understand your vision once they see it all together.

What's wrong with wild?!!  *big grin*  I saaaaaaaay, GO FOR IT!!!  It's going to be so unique with so much flair that everyone at your wedding is going to remember it for being so "non-conventional"!!  Personally, I'd love to go to a wedding with out-of-the-ordinary dresses and details!  


You just do YOU and let everyone else love you for it!!  :)

oh hun, I think it really depends n you. if you love them, then they will be perfect for you. By no means I could pull these colors off, but why shouldn´t you? each girl is different and so will be her style. the fact that people say for them it is not wedding colors, doesn´t mean, they cannot be for you. these are daring and fearce choices I admit, but I think that if you have the guts to pull them off, your wedding will be memorable

You should check out some of the My Fair Wedding episodes.  I think there were a couple where David Tutera incorporated animal print with bright colors but still made it look classy. I can't remember the exact episodes though.  :-/
