@paigers91:  I think it would look great with lots of tones of green!!  Kind of like an ombre sort of effect.  Our colours are purple and orange and the decor will range from peach to eggplant, tangerine to grape colours!  

It’s so hard to imagine how things will look like!  I am having a destination wedding and it’s so hard to try to picture the WHOLE picture!!!

I think if you look through “Green” weddings on TheKnot, you’ll notice they use lots of different colour greens most of the time 🙂  Hope it helps! 🙂

I think mixes can be tastefully done! Ours is somewhat a mix as well. Our “colors” are wine/raisin rum and kiwi…technically. But we have several different hues of purple that go together. We have the wine, we have some softer lavendar, etc. It all depends on how you do it I think.

We’re doing shades of green and dark purples. I like the way it looks so far. And it’s meant far fewer headaches than I probably would have color/swatch-matching.

We are doing shades of blue in a slate blue-navy range.  My BMs will be in all different colors and dresses, and I am SO excited for the variety.  I think shades of green will look great (I’m trying to find a link where I saw a wedding that had shades of green, with dresses too, recently – will post later if I can find it!)

Go for it!! I think it would be impossible (aka very expensive) to make sure every shade of a color used is exactly the same. Good luck!

As long as you have it done purposefully its fine. If for example, everything is kelly and *just* one thing is lime green, that would look weird. But if you have many shades of green throughout it will look great.

I love the idea of doing all shades of green. I love things that are monochromatic (in a sense) so I vote YES!!! You just gave me an idea to do all shades of blues lol. 😉

i think multiple shades of green is totally fine–it adds dimension to your color palette. I think if everything was the exact same shade of green it almost would be kind of bland.

i did a jewel tone themed wedding with lots of peacock feathers and used multiple shades of teal, green, blue, and purple. it came together nicely because there were so many colors that complimented each other–not just your usual two or three shades.

I actually like it better when different hues are used.  Some times people take the colors they have chosen too literally.  It makes the room look stark and un interesting.  The shade variations will give the eye something to look at
