We both love blue and we’re making it our central color, but I can’t think of an accent color that goes great with it. Yellow, pink, peach, black…. I’m not sold. FI suggests green because we both like it but I don’t think it’s a good accent color. Anyone else only do one color? Or can you post decor pics that will sell me on an accent color?

We didn’t really have a lot of color at our wedding unless you consider candlelight as a color. Our girls chose their own black dress. Their flowers had some deep pink flowers and the guys had a deep pink vest under their tuxes. We had pomegranates as our escorts cards. I think the deep pink/pomegranate was our only color and it was used pretty sparingly. I don’t have any pics from our reception, but the rest was ivory and candlelight. So do what you guys like– there’s no rule book to having 2 or 10 colors.

@kay01: My sister’s wedding was blue only. She had a lot of white accents since that’s sort of a default option, and when we reeeaally needed a second color for her invites, we just used a lighter shade of blue. It looked lovely! I personally think monochromatic weddings with all different shades of the same color are gorgeous.
Good luck deciding!

Here’s a picture of a mostly blue decor with just a pop of colour from sunflowers. I think it can work.

You could just do blue with accents of different tones of blue?

You don’t need an accent color if you don’t like anything imparticular. You coulddo as someone else suggested and use different hues of blue.

My wedding was mainly olive green. I had white and black too because of my dress and DH’s tux.

I love the pictures you’ve all posted. You may be right, just use different shades of blue. I’ve already decided to do that with the centerpieces (posted here http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/knittingcrochetting-for-your-weddingshare#post-2952490 on intent to make quilted bases with bases for centerpieces), so maybe I was subconsciously thinking about it already.
