    Definitely going with vibrant colours. I have a splash of red throughout. Red, grey, silver and glittery whites.

    I'm the same way. I love flowers with color but nothing that makes it hard to match with. Smiley smile

    I like pastel better, but I like when it's balanced by some dark, bold colours... like pastel pinks and grays, with a dark burgundy... or pastel blue and lavender, with a punch of fuschia or orange...

    Another tough one. I like them both. But I do like bold colors with a hint of softness this that's when eucalyptus kicks in for that soft pastel look greenery with bold but not too bright. I picture my wedding in fall.

    Vibrant! I think it depends on the time of year but we got married in the summer so vibrant felt right!

    I'm usually flip flopping over the two, but right now I loving lighter coloured flowers. I bit brighter than pastel but not so vibrant.

    Neither! Pastel looks boring to me and vibrant is way too cheery for my liking. Jewel tones and natural tones are the way to go for my taste

    Pastel. Or, jewel tone.

    I like both, but I think our Tiffany blue falls more into the vibrant category

    I haven't been able to make up my mind yet. Few months decided on vibrant, then few months changed to pastel. I am in the mood of pastel's now. Don't know if it will change again.

    I would have to say vibrant as our wedding colours are jewel tones: gold, silver, eggplant, & plum.

    If the options are similar to those pictured? Pastels. The other are too hard/harsh looking, and definitely need to be taken down a notch.

    Both! My colour scheme is a vibrant deep teal and a pastel soft yellow. The softness of the yellow makes me feel happy and peaceful while the teal's brightness helps maintain focus and promotes liveliness.

    Pastels! They’re very easy to work with in regards to everything else colour wise.

    A combination of both as vibrant is tacky on its own and pastel is too underwhelming on its own.

    Definitely vibrant for me! I've always liked bright colours so I couldn't do pastel for my own wedding.

    That being said, I'm in a wedding next year and the colours are pastel. It will definitely look really nice as well.
