jelcat:  Brown is  a neutral. You can completely ignore it and choose the colors you like.

Have you chosen colors for the wedding party? Do you have favorite colors?

Are you aware of http://www.theperfectpalette.com  ? You can scroll down on the right, click on a color you love and see all the palettes they have developed using that color.

If you like brown, you can incorporate it into the palette.

Yeah I would suggest a bright pop of color like pink or teal. That room looks like it’s begging for some crystal sparkly centerpieces.

jelcat:  You’re welcome. There is another palette website called http://www.design-seeds.com

You can search for palettes by theme e.g spring

blossoming hues

or by using their search by color value tool. You play around with it till you get  color you like, then click on Go Get It and you will see their palettes.

Here’s another one with brown.

frosted moss

Once you choose your palette, go to a paint store or building supply and pick up some paint chips in your colors. They are great to carry with you when trying to choose other items.

jelcat:  It will look like you had the chairs custom upholstered to go with your theme!

The restaurant where we had our reception (ours was in the basement wine cellar though…) the greens are nice I think. Anything would go though!
