I was sitting here looking a wedding stuff and read an article...or a blog response rather...about wedding colors/seasons stuff like that. I read another couple in Arizona is getting married at Christmas time next year, same as me. Her wedding colors are going to be navy blue and silver, she said she thought the traditional red was too cliche. What do ya'll think?? I was going to go with red and silver, is that infact too cliche? Should I look at navy blue or some dark color like that? I don't want burgandy or anything like that. What do you think?
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me hapy when skies are grey. You'll never know dear, how much I love you..please don't take my sunshine away!
I may be a little biased as I was bridesmaid and the dresses were navy blue and it was a bad wedding...but I found navy blue to be a little dull. Especially if you're having the wedding at Christmas time. I don't think red it traditional but why not a teal colour? Not too green or blue. Or you could do a nice burgundy with silver. You could also do black too - that was the colour of my sister-in-law's dressed. It looked quite nice against the guy's silver vests.

I wouldn't worry about being "cliche." I would be more worried about chasing the current trend. When you look back at the photos in the future, you don't want to think, "Ohmygosh. That was soooo 2008."
A second point: The color will be on PEOPLE -- not just a paint color on a wall. What color do people look good in? Red complements MANY skin tones.
I used to be a wedding decorator, I always told the brides, have the colors YOU want, it is YOUR day have fun with it!
BTW My wedding I wanted just plain old black and white, with a touch of color. I went with purple roses because that was my grandmother fav color and flower. It was my way of having her there with me on my special day since she passed 3 years before I got married.

I think it's your wedding, your moment, and your memories. Who cares if someone thinks red is cliche. Do you like red? If so go for it. Do what makes you happy and dont think a second thought about what other people may say. Fads come and go so it needs to be more about your personality and preferences.
Oscar'sMomma, it's your wedding, and you pick the colours you like. It does'nt matter what anyone else thinks, but you.I've decorated a few weddings, and the nicest one I ever did was mostly white and gold, with red bridesmaids dresses. I used red flowers, as well as white, and ivy with tulle as a garland on the wedding table. I had a bunch of red white and gold balloons, with gold curly ribbon, and about 50 leaveless trees, sprayed with gold spraypaint, and white and red mini lights on them. I stuck them in sand and rock filled buckets and covered the buckets with red, and gold foil. The tables had red tablecloths, with centerpieces made of rose bowls 1/2 filled with gold spray painted rocks, white curly ribbon around the top and a pillar candle in each, either red or white. We had all white tableware, and gold charger plates. It really was beautiful. You could easily do the same, with red white and silver.
WOW!! Hey Pen you wanna come decorate my wedding!!! :) You sound like you did a beautiful job!!! I have pretty much landed on red and silver. I think red dress for the girls and the guys will have silver vest/tie..or do you think match them w/the girls?!?! This planning stuff is a lot harder than i thought!! And i still have a year to go!!! :) At this rate...come June of next year, ya'll might not like me too much!!! :)
I think either a silver vest, or a red one would be nice, you could also go with a red tie, and silver vest. A grey tux would also be outstanding with that colour combo. Sure, I'll come, where are you?
Actually NDY.....my sisters do look like those models. Tall, skiny and long blond/brown hair. I'm not exagerating (sp) either....they really do. I have beautiful sisters, especially my younger, i wish I had her looks!! Killer!! And you know what Pen, i might have to fly you down here so you can taste the Southern flavor!! LOL :)
Lucky you! I've seen too many weddings where the bride didn't take her friends'/sisters' body shapes into consideration. (My sister was prego with twins.) Thank your sisters for making that part of the decision-making process easier!
NDY-no kidding!!!! They are really worry free!! Other than some floral crazy thing, that's really the only thing they asked me NOT to put them in!!! LOL :) My sister might be about 3-5 months post prego but i can order her a different dress..similar to that one but for maternity. We've already discussed that!! :) She said if she can't get pregnant either late this year or very first of next she'll wait so she's not in the labor stages during the wedding!!! Wouldn't that make for a funny memory though!! LOL :)
I'd advise going simple. If your sisters are knock-outs, there's no reason to take away from that. Plus, you want primary attention to be on you, right? Is there a key feature of your dress that you want to play off?
