Hello everyone! Let's talk about wedding colors! How did you pick your colors? Pinterest or real life inspiration? Post a picture of your color palette inspiration below! I'll start!

Purple has always been one of my favorite colors since I was a little kid. I saw the top left picture in this collage and was instantly sold on using shades of purple for my September 7th wedding.

Let's see those palettes!

    I couldn't decide between pink or purple so we picked both! We are doing muted tones so dusty rose, vintage mauve, dusty wisteria, etc. We've incorporated both the pink and purple tones into bridal party attire and decor!

    I didn't really have "inspiration" - I just picked three colors I liked that went well together. Turns out they matched my favorite flower so we just went with it!Planning Milestones - Picking your wedding colors! 2

    I knew I wanted blue, grey and ivory. I had the hardest time picking what shade of blue. Finally choose that along with the selection of bridesmaid dresses that my girls can pick from. The blue we finally choose is Stormy from Azazie and going to go with a dark grey tux for everyone.

    My favorite color is red, but I didn't want bright colors, so I went with burgundy/wine! Then I picked blush as it goes super well together.

    Since we're a December wedding, I wanted to play off of the season and the holidays without looking too "Christmas-y". After a few Google searches and inspiration trips to Michaels- we've landed on shades of reds, greens, blush, white and metallic accents.

    The first picture is our centerpiece and the others are inspiration:

    That was an easy one for me. I just picked my two favorite colors, purple and black. We've thrown in silver as an accent color.

    The top left picture is my exact inspiration! I spent an hour today trying to figure out where I can get BM dresses that match the colors lol

    Hi Ariana! Aren't those dresses gorgeous? I was sooo obsessed. Throughout my search, it seemed like cocomelody came closest to matching the dresses in the picture. I decided to go with dresses from Azazie in the colors 'grape' and 'tahiti'.

    My fiance actually requested either a bright blue (think old LA Rams color) or a dark green. I just couldn't picture how to make the blue work without it being super in your face and overwhelming, so green it is. We'll be pairing it with gold, ivory, and blush accents to brighten it up a bit.

    I was definitely considering an emerald and gold color scheme! I'm lucky, my fiance had no preference!

    If we weren't getting married on our dating anniversary, I was going to do a Christmas/winter wedding! Such a beautiful time of year! I love how simple and 'classic holiday season' your centerpieces are!

    I haven't used cocomelody, but I've heard good things! The dresses we bought from azazie turned out beautiful.

    Thank you. Smiley laugh I'm trying so hard to not have this look like a Christmas wedding, but rather a winter one.
