Hi @spring_bee:  First and foremost… as this is your first post… a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”

There are lots of great websites (besides the feedback you’ll get here) that can show you tons of examples for colour combos all at once… and you can fine-tune your options

Here are some links to get you started…

These first two are for Websites that specialize in colour combos… so you can click around and try out a bunch of different stuff (see what goes well together)

1- The Perfect Palette = http://www.theperfectpalette.com

2- Design Seeds = http://design-seeds.com

 

The next two… are using GOOGLE, you can see a wide variety of Wedding Themed colours all at once (realize it can be overwhelming)… OR you can fine tune it to the specific parameters you like (such as what I’ve done here for # 4). 

3- Even just old regular GOOGLE… try GOOGLE IMAGES… with your colour choices.  For example here is one I did for – Wedding Red & Pink =

http://www.google.ca/search?q=wedding+red+and+pink&hl=en&rlz=1W1TSCA_enCA455&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=DKNeUZX6NaHV0gGb74GoAw&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1242&bih=515

4- And here is another, this time more general… for – Wedding Colour Schemes =

http://www.google.ca/search?q=colour+schemes&hl=en&rlz=1W1TSCA_enCA455&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=-qNeUfCGNsP00gHcnYDIDA&sqi=2&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1242&bih=515#hl=en&rlz=1W1TSCA_enCA455&tbm=isch&q=wedding+colour+schemes&revid=704479136&sa=X&ei=AKReUdPKCOvU0gHI9IF4&ved=0CHUQgxY&bav=on.2,or.r_qf.&bvm=bv.44770516,d.dmQ&fp=597b35562800fc98&biw=1242&bih=515

Want to try out other colour combos… just type what you want into the GOOGLE box at the top…

 Hope this helps,

PS… There is also a Bee on here, who likes doing Colour Inspiration Boards for people, I’ll see if I can’t find her topic to link to as well.

I like the color combination of the first link you posted. You honestly wouldn’t need a ton of red to tie it in with the chairs – sometimes I think things look better when they aren’t so matchy.

I don’t know what to say about the BM not wanting to wear pink. If its your wedding color then its your wedding color. Maybe she would prefer a different shade of pink? I want my BM to be comfortable for sure – so I gave her (I only have one BM) a lot of freedom with the dress style. But I would not change my colors to cater to a BM’s taste. This is a dress they will more than likely wear one time in their life for a couple of hours. I would pick out something you like and that is flattering to their figure and leave it at that.

I think the colors are really pretty though
