What color palette do you think works best AND is the most versatile in terms of decorating? (the circle is tux color, fyi)
Option #1 [attachment=1145784,144768] I love color and love how black will contrast w/ my ivory dress, but I’m worried that there are too many dark shades? I’ve always wanted a bold, colorful wedding but I was worried about it being too dark so I threw in the yellow, hoping it would lighten up the palette.
Option #2 [attachment=1145784,144769]I love the “uniqueness” of gray tuxes, and feel they’d look nice with my ivory dress & bridesmaids’ dark purple dresses, but I’m worried gray tuxes will be a hassle. They seem less common, so more expensive. I’m also worried about losing the boldness and the color palette seeming more pastel-y/soft if that makes any sense. Soft color just isn’t me…
I’m torn between my desire for bold colors and uniqueness.. any advice/suggestions would help immensely! 🙂 thanks so much ladies!

I think you could definitely go black, but if it were me, I would brighten up the red, that would be really bold and unique. I would do your flowers with pops of bright red, yellow, and purple, with greens of course! It would look amazing!!!

I chose black because it will be a LOT easier for you, plus the red is sexy. Similar to my color scheme, but I did pink and not red.
Also… if you go with grey tuxes, be prepared for the tux people to be jackasses. I went and ordered Ivory shirts with a dark grey/pewter vest and was told that “most people do not do ivory with grey, it just isn’t done.” I actually left that place and went somewhere else!

i vote for the second one – and if tuxes are hard to find, maybe a grey suit instead? that should be easier to find (but i’m partial to suits anyway…)
and i think yellow and ivory flowers would look bright, fresh and amazing against dark purple dresses.

I prefer the second set of colors. The first set has too much going on for my taste.
