what colour sneaked its way into your wedding?

i ladies,


I realized that sometimes You work on Your colour theme for ages, and then when it comes to getting the items, suddenly you cant find them in the colour you wanted, but there is oooh another colour that catches your eye, and you think, well one detail in another color still blends in... and then it goes on and suddenly you find that this new colour sneaked its way into your wedding ;-)


I wanted my wedding to be ivory and lavender.... based on my engagement ring.


and now..... I see a lot of ivory and blush pink, cause i could not find the favors I wanted in lavender...

Did you embrace the sneaky color or did you want to change everything again when you realized?

I fight it tooth and nail!  It has to stay as is because he picked them.  It's usually rare for the man to be involved and the fact that he is is the reason I fight it!  I'm sure there are some ladies that embraced the change and did it so much that the original color scheme is no longer present!  As long as it is something you love that's all the matters (:

My colors at first were red and gold but i kept seeing combinations with red and white and i actually do not like that combination at all.. so i figured ivory and gold for some things would definitely work in some centerpieces that we have. so.. red ivory and gold :-)

Fearce, i understand your point. :-) My reception hall is ivory and lavender and so is my ring and one shawl... so may the biggest thing, the room still gives the theme I wanted. I love blush and I think it blends in nicely. It is actually only the favors and my bouquet. but i must confess, I like this bouquet a lot because it looks fresh and soft. 


as for the rest, I realized finding the right, perivincle/lavender tone is difficult, so I often went for ivory alone....

This may sound weird but the chocolate brown had no place in my wedding and it ended up being my dress color. They say when you find the dress, you just know. Little did I know that it would be brown! The look in combination with the price and no need for alterations won me over immediately. So out went the black, white, and red and in came the red, cream, chocolate and gold. It ended up perfectly!

FI picked burgandy and silver. Since we didn't want the look to feel like christmas we added hints of black and soft pink to soften the tones

I knew I wanted blue and green but because FI's favorite color is Olive Green that's the color I went with. I wasn't that happy with it at first bcause it's dark and I always pictured lighter colors. The ladies here on PW helped me choose the perfect color to go with it and turns out the colors are Olive Green, Plum and Ivory.
