Wedding Wednesday - Color Palette

Honestly I have no idea what to do as far as color palette because it depends on the venue and we need to go back and look at it again.  These are some initial thoughts of just what I like.  Coral with gold.

I don't love these table decorations but I like the gold with coral.

I've also always liked kelly green too.

I also like navy with coral but I can't do the navy dresses with the guys in black tuxes! :)  As my friend Ashley from home always says, "black with black, brown with navy."

When Mom comes down next, we're going to go look at the venue again and decide on colors. 

How did you all decide?  Any good color combos I need to know about?


  1. I did navy and pink. I am dying to know what you decide on!!! so fun!

  2. So much fun! I am loving the coral and gold!

    I thought the same thing about the navy and black until I looked at bridesmaids dresses. The Lula Kate navy has a lot of blue pigment to it, and I loved the way the girls ended up looking. Check out my wedding posts to see. The guys even wore wide-stripe custom silk bow ties and cummerbunds in navy and grey with BLACK tuxes. I fought Mr. Smith HARD on it, but I actually really liked the way it ended up looking.

    Our "colors" were navy and pale grey with champagne, pale pink, and ivory. Can't wait to see what you choose!

  3. My friend told me to pick colors that represented us and to do this by looking in our closets. What colors were we drawn too? For me, they were muted pinks, blues and tans, so thats how I did it.

    I love your coral and gold or coral and navy ideas. So southern and I havent seen coral yet, so that would be unique and different.

  4. I love the coral and gold idea, for some reason I think that fits you...but then again I think the kelly green would too! I am dying to have a navy and green wedding- but the whole black and blue thing doesn't fly with me either!!

  5. Haha! You crack me up. ;) I really love the coral and gold idea. Its something you haven't seen a million times and yet it looks classic. When holly was picking bridesmaids dresses she originally wanted Kelly green. But then found the rasberry pink photographed so much better. You may discover the same thing. The coral may photograph much better. :)

  6. I love navy and kelly green! Can't wait to hear what you choose!

  7. I can't wait to see what you choose!! I hope to someday do navy and pink.

  8. One of the best pieces of advice anyone gave me is go with colors you look good in.
    Giving that I'm dark headed and red is my color.. and that our wedding was in Feb. around Valentine's day.. I went with red and pink.
    I also think the venue matters too and the setting.
    Since we did Uptown I needed something more formal and Uptown looking versus some rustic or beach look.
    That's one of my pet peeves. People who get married at/or on the beach in a big ball gown.
    Give me a break. Match your flowers, dress and bridesmaid dresses to your enviroment and season.

  9. I love the coral - such a fun color! One of my weddings next summer bridesmaids colors called sage green. i'm excited about it and not sure what other colors my other wedding i'm in will be!

    I can't wait to see what you pick!
