No, no, no!! That sounds lovely!  You are on the right track with including various shades of your colors – it adds depth and interest when you don’t worry about being so matchy-matchy. These are just to give you an idea, but check out the difference between more “matchy” (first one) and not so “matchy” (second and third):

I think your idea sounds great! We’re doing something similar with white, a couple shades of grey, deep purples, and deep dark reds/burgundy. I think our flower arrangments and the blending of all the colors is going to look awesome so I’m sure it will work out well for you also!!

@FutureMrsChaney: This is something I feel VERY strongly about! For my own wedding, my primary colors are orange, green and white, but I’m also throwing in some turquoise and even a bit of yellow. As for the orange and green, they range from apricot to tangerine to pumpkin, and from lime to grass to avocado.That’s intentional, because I think it looks so much more sophisticated if you don’t insist on matching exact shades. Trust me on this, and go for it!

@FutureMrsChaney: Well in that case, you might consider throwing in another color (green, as in the third pic above? goldenrod? navy?). LOL – not trying to confuse you, just suggesting you don’t let yourself get boxed in because of what other people think is the “right way.” Wink
