How in the world do I pick my colors? I love the mocha colors but I also love light pink, but my FH wants purple and gold...not happening lol. There are so many colors to choose from idk what to pick!

    Imo I think light pink and mocha is a good pairing. Maybe find some other colors that compliment them and make them seem more like a pairing.

    Light pink, mocha, and gold could work

    I just asked FH since I didn't care. He said red and gold so I said ok!

    If your FH really wants purple, how about lavender accents with your light pink and mocha.

    Mocha, soft gold or champagne and light pink would be beautiful!

    I didn't know what colors I wanted, so I just started pinning things on Pinterest, then realized everything I pinned was white and gold, so that's what I went with.

    I actually picked mine by looking at flowers. I found flower arrangements that I liked the colors of and based it on that.

    I think light pink and mocha would look very nice. Add some gold accents to give FH his gold. I think that would look very nice.

    You could do mocha, pink and gold! I recommend looking at color pallettes on Pinterest!

    I think you should compromise with FH and include some of his colors too. Either mocha, pink and gold or maybe lavender and blush. IMHO I actually prefer FH idea and am not a big fan of mocha.

    Our colors are Navy, eggplant, ivory and gold. The night FH proposed I dreamt of him in a navy suit, I'd never really thought much of the wedding specifics before then but, as soon as I woke up I knew that was one of our colors. My dress is ivory so our linens will coordinate with that. I also wanted to include metallic accents and my dress has gold accents so that will work. I asked FH the other day what color my MOH should wear and he suggested a deep purple color. Boom! We found our colors.

    I agree with the others that suggested light pink, mocha, and gold, or light pink, mocha, and a complimentary purple.

    I think that mocha, gold, and light pink would be beautiful together. We did peacock colors. They incorporated all of our favorite colors.

    It's not that I don't like the purple, but he wants this to be a big LSU wedding and I feel this is our wedding day not an LSU Tigers celebration

    We talked about colors that we definitely did not want to have for our wedding. Then talked about colors that went well together we ended up picking silver grey ice blue with accents of black
