wedding colors

Number two question people ask when they find out I'm wedding planning (following "do you have a date set?") is...

"What are your colors?"

Now, I know that in a typical wedding a bride selects a pair of colors for her wedding decor and theme if you will. While that is all good and dandy for them, I have always had a different image in mind for my big day. So when people ask and I try to explain that my day will be soft and pastel but mostly neutral, I receive a half smile and glazed eye look. They don't understand. They want me to say "red and black" or "navy and pink" or "teal and purple (which sounds horrendous but could be pulled off)".

So I started searching for a color palette that describes my wedding day as best as possible. I came across one that is pretty spot on as far as color and texture. It's only missing a bit of rustic, but I'll save that for a surprise. Without further adieu...


What do you think of my wedding color palette? Image it with lots of pretty pastel flowers and wood and iron. What are/were your wedding colors? If you could do it again, would you choose different colors?
