I think you can do whatever makes you the most happy.  Depending on the green, I think it would look nice.

I agree with IA_Snowflake… Either choice will work out really well. Test them out and pick your favorite.

Do whatever you want… Its your wedding after all… not your mom’s.

I think any of those colors could work great for a winter wedding…

My wedding is in the middle of November.  I am allergic to pastel colors, typical fall colors, and pumpkins/gourds/squashes so like you I prefer bright colors.  Neither the wedding coordinator nor the florist nor anyone else who we’ve worked with has tried to talk us out of bright colors.  Our bouquets will be red, purple, orange, and fuschia with green accents.  The dresses are navy.  If it makes you happy, that’s what is most important.

I think you should choose whatever colors you want, regardless of the season. I had a December wedding last year, and had Navy, White and Kelly Green as my colors. I never thought it necessary to coordinate with the holidays; it was just what I wanted. And Fusica and Green are just a variation of Christmas colors, so you can use that as your argument.

My friend had charcole grey and orange for her january wedding and while it was very fall, it didn’t feel out of place. Go for what makes you happy.

What about burgundy and gold?  They are great colors especially if you plan to do your wedding near Christmas and they’re very elegant.  You could have gold napkins and gold-rimmed plates with white peonies against red berries as centerpieces.  [attachment=208933,19785]

I don’t know if I’d necessarily want to go with black because black in my culture is a sign of bad luck when you wear it to a wedding.  I also think that in addition to the centerpiece added above, I would stick candles around it so that at night, it would be gorgeous.

I also saw this Winter Special on HGTV and thought Vern Yip’s centerpieces were amazing. He had squares filled with berries and branches of berries and roses on top.  Not only is it cheap but elegant.  Unfortunately, the picture doesn’t even do justice to what was seen on tv.  Vern Yip is AMAZING at making anything that’s ordinary extraordinary.

I think brown, burgundy, and gold would be great together as a winter combination.  You could have the tablecloth as a chocolate brown, the silverware or wedding favors as gold, followed by the flowers in the color above.

I don’t think it’s spring-y at all, especially because you’ve paired it with black! I love the scheme, keep it up!

Out of the choices you put I’d say definitely the black with bright colors (I’m thinking gem tones, vibrant violet, emerald green, indigo blue, etc). The pink and green is a little spring for me (when I see the colors together, I think Lilly Pulitzer). Black and white could be super elegant, but it seems you want splashes of color.
