    Your pallette sounds beautiful, but might look a little harsh if done in large quantities or without more mellow accent colors. If you are doing reds and peach as dresses, flowers, and paper, you’re fine, but table cloths in red would be a bit overpowering.

    Have you thought about adding some yellows to strengthen the sunset pallette or adding some soft gray or cream to mellow out the reds?

    @onasoccer151: I like red too. I had red for a June wedding and like you was conscious of it being heavy so teamed it with aqua and made aqua the dominant colour. I like the three colours you posted. How many BM’s you having? If you’re having more than three you can have the variants between the three shades you posted.

    I think that those colors are gorgeous! As long as the colors are in the same range you are fine.

    @onasoccer151:  those dresses you posted are beautiful 🙂 I think mixing peach tones into the flowers and paper would be enough to tone down the bold classic red

    I like it! here’s a thought… use the coral more heavily with flowers and decor, and ditch the black… that’s what makes it seem too wintery/formal IMO. What about using gray for the guys’ suits to soften it?

    I feel your pain- I started with all winter colors for a summer wedding too 🙂

    My colors are black, red but want more of deep red too and white. So don’t feel that you have to change your colors. My wedding is in June 2015.
