@KatB442:  Have you thought about a light purple…or a blueish purple? I just know that purple and green go real well together.

@KatB442:  Hi there fellow minnesotan. I think you’re the first person I’ve seen on the bee who is also using sage as a wedding color. FI and I are also having a late August wedding and we’re going for an elegant afternoon garden party feel. Our other main color is peach and we are accenting with a kind of eggplanty purple and chocolate brown. We were originally going to use lavender, but my mom’s dress is more of a lightish eggplant and I’ve found a bunch of other things to match it so I switched to the darker shade. 

Here is a few of my color inspiration pics

I think a teal or robin’s egg kind of blue might go nicely with your theme, I’ve also seen sapphire blue work well. Here’s some inspiration pics.

We did pale (sage) green and ivory with a few gold accents for our October wedding. I think it came out well and was very romantic looking. Just sticking with green and ivory saved us a ton on the flowers. 

If we had more budget I might have added some dusty pink and peach as well. It makes me think of a sunset. Instead we had a ton of candles and the flames lit them up so they glowed and that looked good with the green.  

The room wasn’t all the way set up when this pic was taken.

I don’t have much in the way of blue, but my wedding colors were sage green, blush pink, white, and ivory.  I think gold is a lovely substituion for pink if that’s not your thing.  Peach or lavendar would also look nice.  Here’s some photos from my wedding.  I tried to find a couple with gold in the picture to give you an idea of what that would look like.  You could also do a sage green with some other shades of green.

@KatB442:  Ivory, sage, and gold is a great combo!  If you do include blue, I’d probably pick a soft, light shade to keep it more romantic.  Like one of these:

I think the biggest problem with blue is that flowers don’t come in blue.  You can get some green hydrangea, and leaves/stems are green.  Ivory and white flowers are easy.  But it’s just harder to incorporate the blue.

@KatB442:  We had a few different greens in there so it wasn’t all exactly the same shade so I think that was good. We also had candle light to add that soft glow. We were lucky as our venue was a very old castle with a lot of it’s own decor, so less need to add stuff. What’s your venue like?
