This is what I'm thinking for our colors, as it were.

Here's what I have in mind for our colors for the wedding, from Martha of course. http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/photogallery/perfect-palettes-green-and-white?lnc=00e72f09fba1d110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&rsc=pgnew_Homepage
The only problem that I have now is that I want to let my MOH & BMs wear these really cute little black dresses. But when I think green and black...all I think about is the Wicked Witch of the West. :( So I really like the green and white details by Martha, but I also really like the LBDs for the MOH & BMs. I think I'm back at square one as far as wedding colors/theme goes.

Even though we're getting married in Carmel, I don't necessarily want to do a beach theme, in part because we're not getting married out on the beach (the ceremony & reception are indoors) but it also feels a little cheesy. I have started to look at dresses and have found one (so far) that I'm in love with. I'm hoping that finding a dress or at least dress style that I really like will help me find a direction to go in with the style of the wedding.

My MOH told me yesterday that two Irish looking people getting married in a Catholic Mission with a green reception felt like almost too much Irish, and I kind of agree with her (she also suggested that since we wanted to get married in May of next year that we think about Memorial Day weekend and we ended up taking her advice on that one :) ).
What colors/theme are you using for your wedding and how did you decide on it?

I think the black and green *with white* would look fantastic! You can always make just the dresses black, and nothing else. Everything looks good with black! My colors are pale blue and orange. woo!
