    I think you should keep the origional color pallet. It will be very soft and romantic. The red would stand out too much and seem too harsh for the feel it sounds like you were wanting to go with.

    black and gold makes me think of the saints. i also agree that the black will drag down the lighter colors…i think gold, ivory, and pink would be gorgeous! you could still do black suits and maybe even black bm dresses, but i wouldn’t do any more black than that.

    If the wedding is during the day, I would go with the lighter colors because they’re more casual.  If it’s at night, I would go woith the deeper colors because they’re more formal.

    Here’s the trick to black (and I LOOOOVE black): Use MORE of the soft colors than the black.

    example: you have two dozen flowers: have no more than SIX black flowers in the bunch, spaced apart.  Here’s my bouquet, and it might give you an idea on this: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/my-bouquet  I’m also going to be using black in the BM’s bouquets and the boutineers.  

    The key with black is using it in moderation.  If you use too much, it will dominate, use too little, and it’ll barely be noticed.

    I’m certain with all the bright colors (even if they might be considered ‘pale’ shades), you can make this work beautifully!!!!
