We’re getting married in the fall, and initially I was giong to go with traditional fall colors. Sometimes I wish I would have (easy) but then I just kept seeing “Thanksgiving” in everything and I didn’t want that. So we went with this charcoal grey & apple green. I love it. It’s my second fav next to the charcoal grey/yellow scheme (I love that one!).
I was inspired by this s.t.d. card we ordered and went from there.
Is there anyother color I can throw in the mix? Right now we have lots and lots of white with hints of the grey and green. I know we can play up the grey more but with the green it’s tough to find the right shade. Suggestions??

What about a blue? I’m thinking a more vibrant blue to go with your apple green, so a teal or robin’s egg. Something that pops. Not anything dark.

I think that you can add a couple of different colors….Check out The Perfect Palette for these ideas, have you been there before? Visit the blog here to check out some ideas.
- Royal Blue will help keep things bright and fun
- Navy – – I don’t know how dark your grey is but navy can be very pretty, elegant.
- Silver will totally soften it up for a little romance

Check out paint swatches at a local hardware store to see what colors you like best.

I’ve never checked out that site. I’ll look at it. Thanks!!
I was thinking silver/platinum might punch it up too. I’m going over to post my first ‘draft’ of centerpieces in diy 🙂

We had that issue with green as well.
We went with the overall black and white theme & then threw in all kinds of shades of green. Sage green in the menu, apple green on the table numbers, honeydew green on the escort cards. Our flowers were different shades of green & the leaves provided yet another shade.
What we did was go to Home Depot, and picked up paint chips. We had 4 colors of green and told everyone to stay in that range. Worked out great for us.

Ooooh. Good idea Ella.
I did kind of go in that direction when I found lemongrass colored raffia that I MUST use 🙂
So far we have cactus, lemongrass, and apple.
I just found out our reception chairs are navy and we don’t have chair covers in our budget so I may throw in a navy accent here or there. Thanks all!

I agree with Ella…Look for colors in the same family and you’ll be fine. Colors don’t need to match as much as “go together” or complement each other. Check out this link. while it is focused on choosing the best colors for web/print design, it has practical application for wedding colors too: http://www.pagethinker.com/how-to-find-the-perfect-colors-for-your-design-to-communicate-effectively.html
