    What were your wedding colors and/or if you were getting married now what colors would you choose?

    There have been times throughout my life where I could have easily said "Oh, if I was getting married now, my colors would be..." but now that I am actually engaged, I have no idea. The only thing I know is I don't want red to be my color, and I am not big on yellow or orange as a main color but not necessarily opposed as a secondary color. Just looking for ideas, not that I can't find enough of them on Pinterest. lol.

    Our wedding was in the winter (Feb) so The girls wore black dresses and we all had really bright pink roses. I kept the flowers simple.

    Deep purple and sage green waaaay back in October 1998. It was really convenient because I love purple flowers and they (obviously) have green stems and leaves.

    I used dark blue with silver accents in my bouquet and his boutineirre (sp?). I didn't have any attendants so no worries about dresses. I married in July.

    Ages ago I had copenhagen blue bridesmaids dresses with red flowers and red accents on the tuxes.
    I loved my SIL's wedding between Christmas and New Years. Green velvet dresses and she used the poinsettias that were already at the church.
    If I had a fall wedding, I'd probably use chrysanthemum colors like gold and burnt orange. The flowers would be inexpensive.
    This is fun. Keep us posted.

    My first wedding was black and white, and I loved it. We were married in December, so it worked nicely.

    My second wedding colors were dark green and cream. I loved those colors.

    24 years ago, my bridesmaids wore teal and the groomsmen wore silver/gray tuxes. Haha! Can you say 1980's?
    I had a bouquet of orchids.

    I got married this past February and my colors were navy with bright pink (Fuschia) accents. So my girls wore navy dresses and carried bright pink bouquets. My flower girl wore a navy dress as well and had a bright pink sashed. I loved the way everything came together!

    I had a June wedding and my colors were sage green and light pink. I loved it and would definitely use it again.

    My wedding is in July and I had the hardest time coming up with colors!! I knew I wanted gerbera daisies to be my flower...and that was it. I decided I wanted marine blue dresses with pink daisies and pink tea roses (everything else for the wedding is white)- until the morning we went to buy dresses! My fiance and I were browsing the David's Bridal catalog and came across a cool color called "peacock" that was pretty and JUST different enough from the norm to make us both fall in love with it.

    Here are our dresses: http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product...al-Party-Bridesmaids-Short-Bridesmaid-Dresses

    Except I had them add straps.

    We were married six years ago in December, and our main colors were black and white, with an accent of lime green. I think everything looked nice, but looking back on it, it looked a little TOO formal.....
    If I was doing it again, I would maybe go with light grey and yellow/blue......Although I agree the yellow/grey has definitely been overused lately.
    I love the blue/nude look!

    My girls wore teal-- we all share the same coloring and it was a good color for all of them.

    Our flowers were mostly white with a hint of peach to offset the teal.

    I am seeing teal a lot on Pinterest. I like it though. I have teal walls in my kitchen and it is amazing how many colors go with teal. I could probably come up with an unexpected color combination.

    I like black and white but that will be way too formal for us.

    As I posted on another thread, I like the idea of picking a color scheme, like grey, pink, etc., and then letting the bridesmaids pick out their dresses within that color scheme (not even the exact same color). I feel like "teal" might not be a good color palette for that, though.
