#31: What Are Your Colors?

OK, I've been asked this question a million times and it's so hard for me to say this drawn out answer that is something like, "Well, we don't actually have a color scheme per se...we're doing peacock feathers in the centerpieces and then the girls' dresses are a color in between royal blue and navy, soooo..."

What am I supposed to say, though? I really don't have "colors" that all the wedding is done up in. Anyone else have something similar going on? What do you say to keep it short when explaining?

How many of these people actually care about the response? I would just say "peacock blue and navy" and then if they press it, give the schpiel you just gave. If not, let it ride.

I want to do a bunch of greens and cream and ivory and white and pewter. When people ask, I simply say "emerald and pewter" because it shuts them up and it's not really a lie.

Ok, clearly I'm a little late on this one but I've been swamped at work and am just now taking some time to catch up with your blog! This question drives me NUTS b/c I don't have an answer either!! I'm basically having a white wedding - flowers, linens, etc., with some silver mixed in (silver candlesticks on the table, etc.) - and the BM dresses are silver/gold so they're also in the neutral metallic-y family. But when I say "white" people are like "...oh" like they don't get it. Why is this so hard to understand?! Arghhh. I'm sure I have been guilty of asking brides about their wedding colors in the past but I am now officially vowing never to ask this obnoxious question again!
