I'm doing mostly purple, green, and "twine" color, but we are using wildflowers as our boquets, so that will be just about every color in the rainbow!

for my "romantic gothic rock star elegance" wedding... we have chosen: black, red, hot pink & silver. (as our color scheme) maybe it seems unconventional to most.. but it expresses our personalities. both mine and my fianc?'s. luckily i have a great man who loves hot pink as much as i do. it's not only the colors of our band, but what's in our home and what we truly adore. (both of our hair colors have been shades of red & hot pink) we ARE in a rock band, which means we have a lot of tattoos and a ton of tattooed covered rocker friends (some famous.. some not) so, we basically want a day that will reflect not only OUR style, but the style we're used to from being on the road touring and meeting friends, which will now be our wedding guests. we are by no means "goth".. but i feel that the gothic influence has such a beautiful elegance about it, from black wrought iron candelabras to hanging lanterns in majestic sparkly trees.
the ceremony is set at sunset on the beach.. with an isle way of roses and hanging candles leading to a red satin & black lace alter, adorned with silver beads, [hanging as if they were "chains" you'd see worn on jeans or as jewelry as rockers so often do] where our red and black unity candles will sit, topped with a black iron (trellis like) arch which will be covered in roses, more beading and our favorite flowers, the hibiscus.
my gown is mostly white, but with hints of black and hot pink. (especially when it comes to the netting of the petticoat underneath) the bridesmaids will have lovely strapless long classic hot pink satin gowns, with red bow accents around the waist, long black gloves & the groomsmen will be sporting hot pink ties & red accents, under their long tailed tux jackets. beautiful vibrant red and pink roses.. everywhere and rose filled bouquets filled with glitz and silver beading, stems wrapped in black satin.
the reception tables covered in red satin and hot pink satin with a black lace overlay & large center pieces of candelabras, trees, lanterns, bushels of pink, red & white roses and candles of all shapes. lots of roses and candles is what will make this wedding so beautifully romantic. another element I thought would make our wedding fun, would be to ask all of our guests to please only wear black. (everyone has black in their closets & it's always a great choice for looking chic)

so there are my colors, what it says about me and my hubby to be.. and a description into the most special day of our lives.
making a statement: bold, beautiful and romantic...in true rock star flare! just like us. twitter.com/rockchel

My wedding's theme is set by my flowers--hydrangeas--so the main color will be a pale blue, a wisteria purple, and a deep champagne.

my colors are lapis from david's bridal (a dark hue of blue/purple, almost eggplant like) and coral/apricot, with accents of platinum/pewter.


Aboutte:  I like your idea of brown and yellow for your Sept 23 wedding... have you google "brown and yellow wedding" for images?
