Red and brown can be okay together, depending on the shades.  

I would recommend adding in an additional color, champagne or ivory for the ceremony decor and focus on that color with your other colors as highlights.  This would go well with the red and the others if they seem to clash, that would be less of an issue because they would be highlights.  

Emphasize your initial colors more with the reception.  

What color are your bridesmaid dresses?

Could you find a picture of something similar, or get a picture from the venues website? Really hard to make suggestions without seeing what you’re dealing with.

I think red and coral can work really well together 

adding a dark yellow, Gold, orange can bring it all together 


EDIT: I would add a white/champagne like PP said to make it not so autumy and take the brown things out

@Brown2Be2013:  This might be something brides worry about but guests don’t even notice. I’ve never in my life gone to a wedding and thought “this church doesn’t match their dresses/decorations/etc”. I’ve never noticed the colors of the church at all. It’s just background. I would never think “this would be even better if it matched the wedding colors.”

My church is red as well. I freaked out for awhile because I was planning on using coral then when I told my Maid/Matron of Honor she said “My church was red- did you even notice?” I thought back to her ceremony and all of the pictures and realized I never even thought about it.

Often times people don’t notice.  I often get brides that are very worried about their bright red carpet, but I think that (like in the photo below) the fuchsia in this bride’s wedding colors (or just about any other color, really) would have worked beautifully in the church.  I say go with the coral and chocolate brown!

This is my venue (ceremony & reception in the same room). The colour is a bit off in the photo due to low lighting, but the walls are a deep red.  My wedding colours are blush pink and chocolate brown. I am not at all concerned about the colours clashing, because the decorations will be minimal, and I’m certain no once will notice or care that my future stepdaughter’s dress did not match the walls. I think you have even less to worry about as you’re getting married in a church. It really will not matter.
