Colors for a March Wedding

Many brides choose their wedding colors based on the season. This is a very traditional approach; use it if it works for you. March leads into spring bringing to mind bright or pastel floral colors. However, choosing your favorite colors is always an option.

Can you use brown as a bridesmaid dress in March? My wedding was originally planned for October has moved to March. I liked my colors so much, I kinda wanted to keep them. So the idea was to use a brown dress with a turquoise sash, but that doesn't seem very springy. I need advice!

What if you reversed the colors? Maybe a turquoise print in a sheer fabric with a brown satin ribbon?

It depends on the brown -I think - if you go too dark it would not work, but a bit warmer lighter brown with a soft turquoise (not too jewel tone - more soft spring turquoise) would be nice I think! Fresh - reminds me of a lot of the trendy fabrics that are out now.

I agree with wvrdnkwmn. It's your day. Do it if you want to.

I think it sounds fine but then my tendency is to go with what I want rather than what somebody else might think.

Maybe you should consider making the sashes out of spring colors, such as pink, light blue, yellow, etc.

My daughter just got married in Oct., her colors were brown, turquoise and dusty rose. It was really pretty. Use one more color as an accent color like dusty rose or light pink.

I wouldn't even use a sash. go with a bouquet of pink spring flowers with a silk brown ribbon to match dress in the flowers. Maybe find "pink pearls" as a accessory and a bridal gift.

These could me made just for your wedding party. Brown and pink are great colors. Go with what YOU want. It's your wedding and no one in a year will remember anyway. So you be Happy!

I think it would be nice to have something untraditional. When you get to be my age, weddings can be boring as they all seem alike. rofl. I think the colors you've described will be wonderful. Do your own thing and don't worry about anyone else. You have a great idea. I'd stick with it.

I am currently a maid-of-honor in whats suppose to be a late spring, early summer wedding this upcoming year. The bride is very much liking the brown and blue idea.

I think it is going to be beautiful, we are accenting alot more of the blues than browns but I see no reason why you should think that you need to change your colors. Besides traditional ideas are not commonly used these days.

I wore brown as a bridesmaid last July for a wedding. Like everyone has said above, it was a beautiful color scheme! I'd even go one step further- I think brown is the in color this new bridal season -- I'm seeing lots of chocolate brown with pastel highlights. Have a great (brown) day!

One of my girlfriends just did the colour scheme and it looked incredible. I was also just in one with chocolate brown dresses, floor length, with ivory sash, those were great too. Also have several dresses if your needing any.

Here in SD, I don't consider March to be that much of a spring month, no matter what the calendar says. But from evertything I have seen and read, brown with blues, or pinks are really in right now.

Spring arrives in March, why not go with a spring theme? Aquamarine,the March birthstone, is also the color of a robin's egg.

Other spring colors: daffodil yellow, pink hyacinths, peach tulips, lilacs, periwinkles, etc....

Things are moving right along and I have the dedication and encouragment of a wonderful sister who is planning it for me. I am blessed - thank you Jesus.

How about Kelly Green, Peach and Creamy White?
Kelly Green because it is a true St. Patties color, Peach because it is a nice complimenting color with Creamy White tying the two colors together.

I got married in March and had ice blue accents on my dress, cake and invites. I contrasted with navy blue bridesmaids and accented with silver. Flowers were all white with ice blue accents.

What colors do you think would be better for a March wedding in South Dakota? We have alot of snow in March and I was wondering if a dark blue and silver would be better than a red and silver? I want the theme to match a wintery wonderland.

Yes go with the blue and silver for sure. You could also add dark blue and white as well but whatever you do don't go with red. It wouldn't fit the theme.You could have all white flowers (eg. white poinsettas) icicle lights in clear and blue snowflake ornaments and silver garland. Hope this helps. Cheers. (08/06/2005)

Colors for a March Wedding

What about bold, bright green, white and silver? Not Christmas green or Kelly green, more of a spring green, hint of lime, that type of green. Spring does begin in March, though I realize that spring in the Dakotas is slow to come. But spring green combined with silver and white would remind people of the new growth still hidden under the snow. Plus it would be unique and happy. (08/08/2005)

Go with whatever colors you like. My daughter just got married 2 weeks ago. She chose a deep deep red for her bridesmaids to wear. She went with white roses for the girls to carry and she carried a bouquet of deep red roses. It was an outdoor wedding. Beautiful! She used white toille and mini lights inside it and also accented with silver throughout the ceremony and reception area.

The colors you choose you must like and be happy with. Any color will be fine. (08/19/2005)
