    I’d say no to the gold chairs, since there is silver in your dress! I don’t personally like combining gold and silver (even if it’s just a little silver…).

    I looveee greens with the peach/blush color family.  I also love LIGHT blue (aqua/teal) but I am not a fan of dark blues with peach/blush.

     

    Beautiful, and perfect for all the gorgeous greens already present with yur venue!

    @minipenguin:  I don’t think they’d get “lost”!

    Here are some beautiful bridal parties in green surrounded by trees:

     

    I know you said DARK green or blue, but I’m personally a HUGEEE fan of any sort of LIGHT green/sage/teal/mint colors with peach, so I just wanted to share one example:

     

     

    HOWEVER… green (especially light green/mint!) is a tough hue for certain skin tones to wear… I found that out the hard way! I wanted my bridal party in a mint shade, but two of my very pale ladies looked totally washed out wearing this color. 🙁  So just make sure your girls can try on the color (or a similar shade!) before you make a final decision! 

    If green dresses can’t be done for whatever reason, you can have a GORGEOUS bridal party wearing peach or blush, and bring in greens in your centerpieces, flowers (lots of lovely greenery can be used in bouquets!!), stationary, other decor, or accessories.

    LOVE this look!

     

     

    I hope some of this helps!! 🙂 It’s tough to find “dark” green bridal parties, but I’m sure it would look beautiful!

    From the pictures of your venue, the room looks somewhat dark. For that reason I would go with lighter chiavari chairs. I personally think the gold would look best, especially with the bridesmaids in green dresses. 

    My bridesmaids wore pine green dresses and I absolutely loved them. There was lots of greenery surrounding our venue and the bridesmaids definitely weren’t lost. If anything, the contrasting greens only enhanced the look. Here is a picture of the dresses they wore:

    @minipenguin:  The silver embroidery is such a tiny detail that I wouldn’t even worry about it. It definitely will not look out of place. If anything, I think it will be a nice contrast to the chairs since it’s a subtle detail in the grand scheme of things….but I promise that not you or anyone else will even be thinking about that on your wedding day. Also, I love chiavari chairs and think they can really transform a room, but the crystal ones just don’t do anything for me. Definitely go for the gold!

     

    The bridesmaid dress is J Crew silk chaffon and the color is Monterey Pine. It’s also available in long, although it tends to sell out fast. A couple of my bridesmaids got theirs on ebay.
