Hey ladies!!!
So let鈥檚 talk 馃 what are your wedding colors & the theme/ vibe you鈥檙e going for? Also does your wedding date have anything to do with it?

My wedding is October 02, 2022 & the aesthetic I鈥檓 going for is Modern Rustic Elegance. My colors are gold & bronze with touches of black, wood, acrylic & lots of greenery!!! Also sticking to white & neutral flowers. I knew I didn鈥檛 want regular fall colors but that鈥檚 not who we are as a couple so had to give it an elegant twist.
Also SN: just got the bridesmaid & maid of honor dresses & I鈥檓 obsessed with how the colors look together!!! Bridesmaids are doing gold & the maid of honor/ matron of honor are doing a bronze color. The men will be in black tux鈥檚 & white shirts for the classic look. Still debating on gold bow ties or black ones let me know what you think 馃

    Our colors are mostly blues and greens with pops of yellow. Almost everything I own is blue and FH鈥檚 favorite color is yellow so it just made sense. It鈥檚 a spring wedding so originally I was trying to find light pinks and purples as the colors but I don鈥檛 actually like those colors so switched ideas 馃槀

    For your groomsmen, a gold bow tie could be a nice little pop of color on an otherwise black tux outfit 馃榾 but you also can鈥檛 go wrong with a classic black bow tie.


    My wedding colors are burgundy, dark blue (not really navy lol), dusty pink and then gold and cream accents. Our wedding is in January so I was excited to lean into darker colors, plus our venue is a rustic barn so lots of wood.

    Ours are deep teal, mulberry, and silver. Jewel tones (especially teal) are my favorite, and I love bold pops of color any place I can get them!

    Black, mixed metallics, and dark jewel tones. No white anywhere! White weddings are gorgeous but not for me.

    Our wedding was October 1st, but we went with blues for the bridesmaids and gray for the groomsmen. My flowers were in-season wild flowers, and we got married on a farm. Our centerpieces were pumpkins we grew ourselves with a little bit of greenery. I was going for a more rustic, cozy Fall, maybe a bit of Cottagecore kind of feel, but was adamant on not having a particular "theme" that would distract from, simply, a wedding in October.Wedding colors & themes! 1

    Spring wedding here - my girls are wearing a variety of dusty roses and mauves. Flowers will be in that color palate as well. The men are wearing dark navy suits and their ties match the girl's dresses. We're getting married in a barn but I didn't want rustic. More vintage-y vibes with old bud vases, lace, vintage rose gold candle holders and a few more items I bought at flea markets and such. I will be using my grandma's old watering cans to hold flower arrangements. There will be lots of string lights hanging in the barn.

    I would like a fairytale theme. Our colors are regency purple. Hunter/ dark green. The men will be wearing cement gray suits. With green or purple ties pocket square. Ladies will alternate between purple and green. Flowers mainly white with pops of purple. Accents for reception tables silver. Pics posted around ceremony and reception black and white. I got it all figured out. I'm not getting married till 2025. And my dress white all satin/ chiffon and dramatic. I just can't wait.

    Sounds beautiful and elegant. With a classic black tux, I would go black bow tie as gold sometimes gets washed out in a group photo. You can add gold accents on the floral boutonniere (ribbon, leaves) or with pocket square. The groom could wear a different bowtie, maybe gold or gold pattern. I would just make sure the gold contrasts the skin tone so he doesn't look washed out from afar.

    Thanks for the suggestion 馃槉 I was thinking that but then also I thought about if the gold might get washed out in pictures. I definitely love contrast which is why I鈥檓 incorporating black into the color scheme.
