    It might be difficult to find ways to incorporate five different colors predominantly enough to make clear that each is part of the color scheme. You may have an easier time with three colors or so. But really, girl, you can do whatever will make you happiest! There’s no right or wrong here.

    If grey is set, then I’d work from there. Which colors do you like best with grey? Yellow, pink, and light purple would be easy to incorporate into your flowers. So, which of those do you like best? And then, which other color complements that?

    Color will also show up in your paper products, your table linens, your cake, decor, accessories…do you have a vision in your mind for any of those items?

    When you look back on your wedding pictures, you’re going to be happy with whatever makes you happiest on your actual wedding day. So don’t sweat “right” and “wrong” too much.

    Also, does your Fiance have an opinion? My husband had a pretty strong opinion about colors when we were planning. πŸ˜‰

    Maybe just stick to your orginal palette for pretty much everything (attire, linens, etc), but add the other two colors plus the yellow in the form of flowers. That way it will add some more spring colors to your wedding but not seem over the top colorful.

    I second MidnightSun’s suggestion – your original color palette is really, really pretty. It doesn’t really need anything else but you could add extra pops of color in the flowers.

    Edit: I read your OP wrong – the gray and yellow only was your original, but I like the blush combo and gray goes great with that!

    I totally get your indecision. I changed my mind 3 or 4 times but I think (I hope) I’ve finally settled. You probably only do this once so even if it takes some extra work and redoing, make it what you want!

    http://www.theperfectpalette.com regularly features palettes that include 5 or even 6 colors.

    The key is not to even try to feature that may colors in even proportions. Pick 3 that will be your dominant colors and reserve the others for pops or its of colors.

    I would do grey, blush pink, and a pale yellow. Ivory will obviously be incorporated with your dress and most likely the table linens but you don’t need to inlcude that in your “palette”. Stick with 3 colors πŸ™‚

    I actually don’t think the new combination is too much–they’re all “soft” colors that work well together. our colors were green, gray, and white with “soft” colors (yellows and peach mostly) as accents in our flowers, and it came out lovely (if I do say so myself πŸ˜‰ )

    My wedding colors are ivory, lavender, and light green so I’m biased. I like the pastel vibe going on with the gray. I think that gray and purple look great together. IMO the yellow and gray look is very tredy right now and it may date the wedding a bit. It’s hard to go wrong with neutrals and pastels for a spring wedding.

    Our official colors are ivory, lavender, and light green but our decor also has a little gold and blush.
