when your colors are blush, cream/ivory, champagne and navy blue. The bridesmaid dresses are navy.
The Head table has champagne linens with petals.
The guest tables have champagne lines and champagne chair covers with pale pinks, blush and creams flowers with pops of navy berries as centerpieces.
Would blue uplighting work well or should I stick with a light color like pale pink ?
thanks for helping me out.

thelittleone: I had a hard time picking a uplighting color– our venue was a big old mansion, richly decorated. Wedding colors were ivory, black and pewter. Linens were pewter and ivory–
we went with Raspberry uplighting, and I loved it.
Here’s a pic from outside the venue.

I’m in the same boat with the same color schemes…ivory, black, & silver…bridesmaids dresses are black…but my flowers are ivory, pale pink, & champagne. But the only colors of up lighting I don’t want are that raspberry color or any pink/purple. I’m stuck. All I can think of is a light turquoise?

thelittleone: Following because I have almost the same color scheme! (instead of blush I have orange)
I was thinking of going with an amber color or maybe just plain old white. Interested to see others’ ideas!

My daughter’s (2013) venue highly recommended amber, so that’s what she went with. I think it’s supposed to be universally flattering? Her colors were gold, ivory, and eggplant.

MrsEME: love the outside view, even with the raspberry color against your colors.
Peanut-Sue: I think that light turquoise will look great against your colors.
Its so hard to choose, maybe I can ask what either my venue or the florist thinks.

thelittleone: It seems like a lot of people have a problem with the respberry color uplighting.
It’s funny though….I had the HARDEST time choosing a color, because they all seemed like they would be so loud or tacky, for lack of a better word.
I was really surprised how- while yes, you can see it from outside, it was actually very tasteful and nice in the room. It wasn’t overwhelming (the lighting in the pic I posted isn’t “true”- if you will- it was completely dark (and rainy!) outside when this pic was taken, so our photog obviously played wiht lighting quite a bit.
