Trends come and go and there's always the classics - what are your favorite wedding color combos?
Tiffany Blue and Brown, Brown and Gold and Tiffany Blue, Lilic and Silver, Ivory, Ivory and Brown and Gold those are just some colors that I like. I suggusted that when choosing colors pick at least 3 colors becasue one color will be an accent color for example, white/ivory, silver, black, gold etc. Hope this helps

Colors are important and correspond with your wedding style , and yes maybe even personalities. This needs to be considered thoroughly and not given to a, 'knee jerk' reaction.
Bright colors ( Sunny Yellow, Lime Green, Bright Fuchsia, Neon Orange, etc.) for instance would do an injustice to a formal, evening affair; but they would compliment a small informal garden wedding, even a large formal morning or afternoon one.
I know these days people are echoing, 'anything goes', and to some extent that's true, but the difference between a nice presentation and a great presentation could come right down to your choice of colors.
If your favorite colors are bright ones, then morning or afternoon, formal/informal weddings will enhance those colors and make them pop, especially in your pictures. They'll create such a lovely, happy and bright feeling that will impact all your guest.
An evening wedding with candlelight captures the ambiance of the wedding much more than capturing the brilliant colors, they'll go almost un-noticed ( it could even be distractful), but staying with black, pale, soft colors (both for flowers and gowns) will use the glow from the light making an uncluttered canvas, all the while using the shadows to create a dramatic look.
For your wedding day to be fun and enjoyed by you and your guest, keep your choices true to your personality, that will insure a successful and memorable time. If your personality is has always been loud and over the top, then a simple informal wedding will not satisfy you at the end of the day; if your budget calls for a small affair in spite of your desires, don't fret, there are ways to hurdle the obstacle, of not enough money, without going broke. One example, is to pick one area of extravagance, (other than your gown). It could be the floral arrangements on the tables or maybe the linen that covers both tables and chairs. The trick is picking something that'll grab the attentions of your guests but limit it to one area; it could be live music, or a catored sit down meal; or maybe professional lighting and drapery. You can swap one idea for another until you feel comfortable with the budget.
My job is photography, but in the past with three girls growing up, I've learn to be a 'jack of all trades'. I've designed the gowns (and very nice ones too), I decorated the cakes, professionally, made all the foral arrangements; I put on weddings with all the trimmings for others who didn't know how; we had glamor without the cost and always a great presention, but that is my personality. I'm, over the top, on everything I do.
On one occasion I used, lavishly, all kinds of candle holders and mirrors. We had candles on all the tables that were staggered in heights and size. The mirrors created enough reflections to almost double the look. I was breath taking.
I think everything through thoroughly to guarantee the style and look I'm after; and I've found that using the right colors is an extra bonus to accomplishing this.
I hope this was useful to your orginal question. I guess I can be long-winded too.
We just did a wedding in August that used textures/prints instead of a main color theme. The Demask print was black and white and the bride decided to use hot pink and orange as accents for ribbons and what else. It's always best to go with your favorite colors too, that way they have extra meaning. I've seen pink and orange, brown and blue, pink and blue and pink and silver in the last two seasons. I think jewel tones can be a fun and rich way to do wedding colors.
Any one else have any favorites?
I am doing my wedding in eggplant and cream..
We are doing a Christmas wedding with red, white and black.
I bought a wedding dress that inspired my color and my fiance wanted yellow. So sage green and shades of yellow will be our colors.
I want to do White, Ivory and baby blue...what do you guys think?
We want to do cream and black or champagne and black.
we are going with turquoise green, fushia and lime green for our summer wedding
Grey, black, cream, red and silver accessories. But all colors are great -- I go by what colors a couple feels - what makes them have a feeling of happiness, joy and/or fun!
