Well, it’s really too late to change things so I guess I need a little reassurance that my wedding isn’t going to be gawdy and awful.
Our colour scheme is navy, orange and gray with accents of fuschia and red.
My dress is diamond white, the Maid/Matron of Honor & Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are gray linen with a navy satin ribbon and navy patent shoes and the boys are wearing navy tuxes – the groom will have a navy vest and tie and the groomsmen will have gray vests and ties.
My flowers consist of orange mini callas, red dahlias, white fressia, fuschia mini gerberas and white button mums. The Maid/Matron of Honor & BM’s flowers are the same only on a smaller scale and the groom and groomsmen will be wearing orange mini callas for their boutonniere’s.
We are having an evening ceremony in my mom’s backyard and we aren’t having any decorations aside from twinkle lights in the trees and candles scattered around the yard.
Our invitations had orange and navy stripes and the only other place we are having colour is on our cake which will be a three-tiered square cake with white fondant, navy and orange ribbon on the top and bottom layer and navy swiss dots on the middle layer.
Opinions? In my head it looked great but sometimes the execution isn’t as wonderful.

I’m sure it’ll be nice, but may seem like a lot to you because you have so many colors going on! I think it will be hard to find an inspiration board that incorporates all the colors already together, but I highly recommend throwing one together, using elements as close to those that you’ve already chosen in your wedding so far. I’m sure things will be looking up :o) My only other suggestion is that you step up the amount of navy and orange in the details so that the red and fuschias in the flowers don’t take over! Good luck! I’m sure it’ll be great! And if you make a board, post it for us! :o)
I found these boards on snippet and ink for you (though all the colors aren’t represented):

I have seen orange/grey all over bridal magazines in the past year as a "hot" color combo. It will be both goegeous and trendy!
I think everyone second guesses their color scheme/dress/invitations/something at some point. It’s perfectly normal! After all, you only do this once and you want it to be great!
