Ask a Question
His sport-themed black and gold or my malibu blue?

I desperately need some help. My fiance wanted the entire wedding to be in black and gold (after his college colors). He is a die-hard Purdue Boilermaker fan and was pretty much brainwashed at birth with these colors. Our wedding is even on a bi-week for football (SEPTEMBER 24th). He is dead set on having all the guys wear gold vests with black.....but I have to coordinate around that. Now given if this was my first wedding I would be a little more bridzilla! But this is his first so I figure a compromise....at first I was going to go with a gem colored purple dresses for my bridesmaids (only 2) but I didn't like any of the purple at David's Bridal, but I love their MALIBU or CORNFLOWER blue (he even mentioned, oh no that would be to much like Notre Dame colors, SERIOUSLY?) What about the REGENCY or LAPIS for purple then? What colors are okay for late September, is blue too summery and for early summer or is the MALIBU okay for late fall....I don't know but I need help and have to decide quick! Please any suggestions are welcome!

I'm totally loving the Malibu blue with orange or other cabana themed colors right now. I love purple and orange weddings for fall, those colors go so well together. The Orange is fun but the Purple is still classy and fitting for a fall wedding.,

Thanks for the comment Laurie, I think you are right about the Malibu blue and orange....that would be gorgeous right now (summertime).  Still leaning towards the PURPLE (yes it would look great with orange)...I still love the Malibu blue...but might just end up with Purple and Gold!!!  Still don't know.

Purple and gold is pretty too!! Like a deep plum purple or a bright fuchsia purple?

I am getting married in mid-October and we are using the Lapis purple as accents for myself and FH and then Apple red accents (on black dresses/suits) for the groomsmen and bridesmaids. I think anything but pastels would probably be great for fall. :)

Okay, I think I'm going to end up getting black!  That way we can play around with the flower colors more!!!  Thanks for the help and any other advice is very much welcomed!!!
