I want to suggest a color scheme that involves the color cranberry, but I can’t call it that because Fiance has a vendetta against cranberries. Like he seriously he wouldn’t buy a paint that was called cranberry, but he’d buy one that was 1 shade slightly different if it had a different name So I need a synonym that doesn’t imply something more purple-ish.
Also what do you think of this color scheme: cranberry + ruby (pinkish red) + apricot + brown + cream?

@MabelleBliss: Wine? Cabarnet? Burgundy?

Candy-apple red? Or merlot? Or bordeaux?

Definitely something in the wine family. PPs advice has been good. I think you can feel free to tell your bridesmaids that cranberry is a good name for the color you want though. 😉

You could always look up the hexidecimal color chart number for cranberry and then choose the name of a color right next to it.

Call it red and he won’t know any different. Men are useless with colours.

I think merlot might work, that sounds nice
@doorstopper: He definately knows the different shades of red, he’s a costume maker (among other things) Maybe I should find out what gel makes this color, lol
