Receiving Gifts in Wedding Colours

Stephanie, on October 7, 2018 at 07:19 Posted in Before the wedding 0 6

Has anyone else noticed they have been receiving gifts in their wedding colours? I’m not complaining, I chose colours I liked. But for Christmas last year, my MIL bought us a bunch of things for our kitchen. All in our wedding colours. We did receive gifts at our wedding that weren’t on our registry and they also seemed to come in orange and blue. Blue I can see, a lot of things are blue. But then some people asked if it was the right shade of blue. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this.

    Maybe the guests figured you picked colours you liked for the wedding and they were the safest bet?

    I didn't notice that, but I was told by many people that lots of guests will wear our wedding colors on our wedding day, and lots and lots of guests did end up wearing our wedding color or complimentary colors Smiley smile I guess guests read the invitation and see the wedding website and subconsciously start making a connection between those colors and the wedding day! It's kind of silly, but it did prove true for me, and maybe your guests are being similarly affected!!

    We haven't chosen wedding colours yet, but this is so timely since the other day one of my friends was just telling FH and I that both her Mom and MIL got the idea in their heads that she was obsessed with purple since that was what she chose (along with silver and grey) for their wedding colours so for the first like 6 years of their marriage both of them kept buying them purple stuff. She finally had to just tell them lol "I love you Mom/MIL, but this purple thing has got to stop. I like the colour and thought it made a nice wedding colour, but I don't need a house full of nothing but purple!"

    I've noticed this too, or that people would buy something doing with peacocks (again part of our theme). I think it's funny but I did pick my theme knowing I would see it a lot and that it would have a lot of meaning to me.

    This seems a little odd to me... Our wedding colours are black and silver, so we havent really received anything in those colours (I don't think many people know our "theme")...

    But I registered for items for my Bridal Shower, and it's mostly whites/teals... so we got lots of things in shades of teal (my favourite colour). So at least it's mostly coordianted. Smiley laugh

    People probably assume you like those colours, and it's a safe choice when picking out items for you!
