august wedding color ideas!
Hey everyone! So FH and I are getting married in august 2012 and i don't really know a lot of other people who are getting married that late in the summer...i guess august just isn't popular! haha. anyway, i'm really not creative or good with fashion AT ALL and i'm having a hard time thinking of colors. I really really like a dark purple color (like plum), but i don't really know if that is season appropriate and even if it is, what would i pair it with? thanks for any advice!

Take a look at this site for some ideas. They have some really great color combos to consider.

Then use Google images to see your choices. Just put in the colors and click on images. It will give you lots of possibilities.

@ Judi. oh yeah. i should probably mention it. it will be indoors. the ceremony will be in a church, somewhat vintage with exposed brick, pretty chandeliers, etc. so i need something that looks good with that.

@ Hayley: Love the quiz!

@ Kathleen: From how you describe the location I think pink and brown would be pretty

The beauty of weddings nowadays is that you can do pretty much whatever you want to do with your wedding. Have fun with it! For me, the colors changed when I found my dress so that might be a factor in the colors you choose.

Just remember that you don't have to stick with what you think "the season" color should be. Make it whatever color YOU want regardless of the season. Our original date was May of this year, then we changed it to September of this year (so I would have more time to plan becasue I was getting really really stressed out) and I was under the impression I needed to change colors because we were pretty much changing seasons. My colors were (and still are after much advice from ladies on here!) black pink and white. I kept thinking its in September so I need a fall color.. but I just couldn't bring myself to get rid of pink so I didn't, and now I'm sooo glad that I didn't.
