October Color Scheme?

Kaitlyn, on November 16, 2022 at 1:31 PM Posted in Style and Décor 0 29
How did everyone choose their color scheme? I’m getting married next October and I’m having a hard time choosing what I like best! I thought I wanted Dusty Blue and Navy with sunflowers, but when I ordered swatches I fell in love with Raspberry and Wisteria. I always wanted sunflowers but I think that would be too busy with Raspberry/Wisteria/Navy. Any thoughts? What colors are others using for their October wedding?

    So we didn't get married in October, but we actually knew before we even got engaged what colors we wanted. My husband is from New Jersey and is a huge NJ Devils fan and their colors are black and red so those were the colors he wanted. I love red roses and black is also one of my favorite colors so when he mentioned those colors to me I loved the idea. I will say finding the fire engine red like the Devils color wasn't the easiest. I guess my first question would be does your fiance care about what colors or are you completely in charge of colors? If he has no preference, then deciding might be more of a challenge. Do any of the colors speak to you more than another?

    Sorry I somehow didn't see that you liked the Raspberry/Wisteria/Navy combination the best and unfortunately it doesn't let me edit my last comment. I think it would be a very pretty combination. I don't think it would be too busy at all. Your fiance and his groomsmen could wear navy tuxes/suits with a vest and tie that matches the girls dresses. You could also have the flowers incorporate the colors.

    Thank you! My FH wants Navy for the suits but doesn’t mind what the other colors will be.

    You're welcome! When I looked up those colors in Google I saw some really pretty wedding invitation options and as well as some pretty bouquets. I think the colors will really go well together.

    I think so too! I’m definitely leaning towards that as our color scheme. I think it’ll be beautiful for fall!

    When I first found our venue I wanted our florals to compliment the venue space. The walls were a shade of pink and had very dark wood tones and stone feature wall. This made me choose blush pink and ivory as my colors. We ended up not going with that venue but the colors carried through. I just really loved how subdued and muted the colors were. That’s how I chose my colors!



    I really like the colors you chose. Looks like you’re using the season as an inspiration for colors which is a great idea! Best of luck Smiley smile

    Rust, navy, peacock(?) And a darker purple that I also don't remember the name of. It took about 3 months for me to finally decide on colors. Lol

    Definitely not too busy. We are doing Navy, Darker Purple (the color from Azazie is Grape), and then light shades of purple and gold for accents. We both love purple so it was a no brainer haha. I made a sample swatch for myself since I couldn’t find much online with all our colors. I just used screenshots of colors and then used Picsart to make the collage.October Color Scheme? 8

    I'm a June wedding and I picked burgundy and black so your colors don always have to match your season just pick what makes you happy
