What kind of input are you looking for, exactly? Help finding pictures or opinions on your color scheme?

These colours aren’t ones that I would pick.  But if I was to attend a wedding with this colour scheme I think it would be lovely.  I went to a wedding last summer where the brides colours were orange and grey.  People were telling her that they didn’t like her colours and she was making a mistake.  But she loved them and stood by her decision.  In the end orange and grey looked great and really reflected the couples personality.

It sounds like you’re lacking confidence in your choices.  There is always going to be someone who won’t like some of your choices.  But it’s your wedding and it should reflect your tastes.  If it was really ugly you would know looking at the colours yourself.

I would also never pick those colours myself, not a fusia fan. But even I think it’s a great choice! from the pictures posted, I think your design would look great! Go with your gut and what you and your FI want. There will always different opinions, decorate how you guys want, it’s your wedding!

Do you think you can get to a decor place and fiddle with the stuff they have there (you don’t have to buy or rent from there, just to see the colours and different choices together)?  Like set up a table with what you have in your mind and then see what you think and make any necessary changes?

srich17:  Ah. Yeah, I don’t like the colors, and I think it’s kind of rude to call your friend “ghetto” for sharing those feelings. Also, added rhinestones/bling will make it look really … over the top, or something. But gun to my head, I’d say make most things navy or ivory, then just use the fuschia for pops of color: napkin rings, centerpieces, chair bows, etc.

What the heck do you mean by ghetto? Your color scheme is not that great IMO. Such high contrast between navy and fuschia is not elegant. Screams teen queen to me. Covering chairs in fabric and wrapping a sash around them doesn’t elevate the chairs and make them nice. The chairs still look aweful. Rhinestones are just a step above glitter. Not a fan of your decor at all.

I would pair navy with a softer shade of pink; navy/fuschia is too harsh for my taste.  If fuschia is a must go, I would then do navy and ivory with fuschia details.
