My Fiance and I are considering 2 primary colors and 2 accent colors for our wedding.
- Primary: Royal Blue and Champagne
- Accent: Dark Green and Eggplant
So, ladies (and possibly gents), what are your thoughts on that color combination? Too many colors? If not too many, do these colors mesh well together?
(We expect to hold the wedding between Nov-April (so late fall, winter, or very early spring months).)
Looking forward to your opinions…

I think that may be too many colors… but it all depends on how you put them together. For me out of the royal blue, dark green and eggplant I would choose two and then have the champagne as an accent color. I think having two accent colors may be too much but it all depends on the look youre going for

I think you are right! I think I am overthinking how upset people may be that…
- a) I may have similar wedding colors as them (I’m in a wedding that is using a deep purple as a primary color this April and last year my FI’s sister-in-law used purple as a primary as well) +
- b) the fact that my sister has loved purple forever and whenever she gets married would like to use that color…
I think we will hone in on:
- Green, Champagne as primaries, Navy Blue accent
- Eggplant, Champagne as primaries, Green accent

Thats good I think it makes everything run a little smoother… I myself started out with a peacock theme but since my favorite color is purple it was kind of hard to pull off purple peacock without having the blues, greens and golds all over and the more I thought about it the more of a feathery mess I saw in my head so now Im trying to keep it very simple, elegent and clean… so we are using ivory and gold with plum purple accents
the plus to this simple and elegent “theme” is we wont need all those extra colored linens anymore so BONUS!!!

I like when weddings have a lot of colors. I think it gives it more appeal… sometimes it’s harder to only use a couple colors. So I vote to stick with the colors you have. Champagne is somewhat of a neutral anyways, so it seems more like you only have three ‘colors’.

I think this combo will look much better: Eggplant, Champagne as primaries, Green accent

I don’t think you can have “too many colors”
Our Primary Colors are: White, Chocolate, Carolina Blue, & Orange
Accents are: Yellow & Green
I think it’s totally up to you! =)

@Superplannerbee: You totally read our minds. I asked my Fiance again… and he said he liked that the best so I think we will move forward with that. (But we may still pull in the blue in very small proportions.)
Colors have been top of mind today since our wedding planner wanted direction in putting together some inspiration boards for us.

I think 3 is the limit for me, unless the other colors are super subtle or in the flowers, etc. Lots of diff colors in clothing can be too much.

We’re using a colour ‘family’ since we know that we won’t be able to perfectly match colours on everything.
These are our general colours:
our flowers will be adding pops of yellow/pink

We’re using four colors as well!
Plum, slate blue, a rustic orange, and a light (but not too light) green.

I have about 4 colors, too. Purple and pink are the main colors, for things like dresses, flowers, linens, and paper lanterns. Yellow will also be incorporated into the table settings, just because I like a variety of color and flowers. We are also using silver paper lanterns and regular silver lanterns, and there will be green (obviously) in the flowers. Plus, we have a red and white checked tablecloth for our dessert table (we’re doing pies) and we are doing wood cookies for our dessert table and our table settings.
I guess that is: purple, pink, yellow, silver, green, red & white, and brown/wood. I think as long as it looks good together, who cares how many colors you have? But I’m not really into the monotone color scheme, either, so it could just be personal preference.

I think it all depends on how you incorporate the colors. Our main color is turquoise…but the flowers and Chinese lanterns will be hot pink, orange, and green.

It really depends on how well you can pull it off. I think 2 main colors with one accent color is more than enough
