  • Even though it is still hot in August, it makes me start thinking of Fall. I think Yellow, Orange adn Brown would be Beautiful. Are you having an outside wedding? What is the setting?

  • A Garden theme would be nice. I imagine lots of wild flowers & sunflowers. Yellow and Lavender would be pretty colors. White cloths with yellow & lavender napkins and flowers like Hydrangeas too. Congratulations!!!

  • is an excellent wedding resource. You can see alot of pics from actual weddings and see what you like. By planning a year in advance you can start doing alot of stuff yourself and save alot of money! After every season the flowers are clearanced out from michaels, joanns and other craft stores. Hobby Lobby has great stuff too!

  • I like these colors. It's summery but still gives that "almost autum" feel.

  • I was going to say what everyone else said. LOL My friend had one a long time ago with red, orange, yellow, green and brown as her colors. They even had silk leaves in those colors scattered about.
