What are your colors?

That question is going to drive me crazy! I know I've got to have some kind of color palette but I'm having such a hard time commiting to certain colors. I don't want a color themed wedding. I guess I should have thought about that before we started buying wine colored vases. I'll always love that color and I definitely want it in our wedding but I just don't want the place drenched in it. I've been playing around on where you're able to post an image and it takes colors from that image and give you a bunch of swatches to choose from to make a palette of five colors. I seem to keep choosing the same bunch of colors. A wine color, deep plum, midnight blue, a light pink and a slate grey. They're really not spring colors but I can always choose the light pastel colors that go a long with those, right? I don't really know the rules but they're already annoying.
The photos I put into the site were similar to the one I put on the galaxy wedding post. I keep going back and staring at them and at how pretty those colors are.

When we chose the barn as our venue I was seeing so many country weddings it was ridiculous. I totally fell in love with that whole look but - we are not country. Don't get me wrong, I love our venue. I just really have to start figuring it out. I'm glad the barn is so bare though. It gives me lots to work with. The stone walls do make me a little crazy. It worries me when I think about decorating.

There it is again!
Can't I just have whatever colors I want? I mentioned that to Ryan and he's afraid it's just going to be a mess of colors. I just dont want to be restricted to a few colors. Ai yai yai!!

I think you can have whatever you want, and the ones you have mentioned would look lovely together.

I wouldnt worry too much about the time of year either - we are having deep purple & grey and the wedding is in the spring too!

It's totally your choice.

I am totally with you - love the barn look, but not a barn person. There are always lots of colors that related - autumn hues (red/gold/pumpkin) or spring (pastels of pink, blue, yellow). I will say that having a color(s) does make it easier though!

Wow that barn is amazing!! I don't think it's too country. It almost looks modern. I think it will be a spectacular space for your wedding. xoxo
