Yes, they are colors.

By the way, I don't know where this context is from, but its grammar seems a bit ungrammatical to me.
Student or Learner
“Great. We can pick out our colors.”
“For the wedding. I’m thinking melon and mint. Supposed to be really hot next spring.”
melon and mint?? colors?

Now, the point is, if it is its grammar, it cannot be ungrammatical for it is its own grammar. Something cannot be wrong in its own terms. It should be right in itself (like "Ding an sich"). So, it should have been either "it's a bit ungrammatical..." or "its use of grammar seems a bit wrong". I'm aware that this matter is of trivious importance, but since you are from Goedel and Kant's country, I hope that you would understand my point.
I was about to pm this to you, but then I decided that it would be good to learn what others thought on this matter.
So, melon and mint wedding dresses :) or what?
By the way context is from a novel.
euncu, was this addressed to me or to Tinkerbell?
I said it seemed a bit ungrammatical to me because of:
“Great! We can pick out our colors.”
“For the wedding. I’m thinking (about)/(of) melon and mint. (It's) S/supposed to be really hot next spring.”
I thought the last sentence needed an a but it's okay as it is.
Well, maybe my "suggestions" are not necessary here.
To be honest: I did not read the text that long, but my first impression was a bit "bad".
I don't think it's the wedding dress itself she is talking about. It's more likely to be bridesmaid dresses, flowers, table decorations and so on - at a wedding people normally work from a restricted colour group to make sure everything "goes" and those will be referred to as the wedding colours.
I did read your text yet I wasn't 100% sure.
When I said, "I did not read the text that long" I meant Tinkerbell's post.
I quickly saw some questionable parts, and that's why I mentioned it.
