I think I may have picked the wrong "Trio- Color" combo for my wedding!!!.. Like many I combined my favorite color with my FI’s favorite color and chose a accent color to complete my trio, Now we’re looking at FuschiaPink, Pool/Aqua Blue, & Ivory …. It just feels all wrong! I can change the pool/ Aqua (Because my FI is not one to dwell on the little things) But I dont feel like that’s fair to him. I can’t change the Fuschia being that my MOH & BM’s dresses are that color as well as my rose bouquet….
Our wedding takes place before noon, in the mid summer month so I dont wanna do too many dark colors, But I dont know what other colors go well with Fuschia… Can anyone out there please help me?! Im open to any/ all suggestions. THANKS!
P.S My FI loves every shade of blue (If that helps! )

maybe more of a midnight blue? something dark or perhaps a chocolate brown?

Your using pretty bright colors, so to tone it a bit you could do a soft platinum/steel gray with the aqua/fuschia.
Or like Hayley mentioned, do a chocolate brown to ground it.
Also, think of it like this….. you don’t have to overdo it with the 3 colors. Maybe your ceremony leans more in the Fuchia tonal range and then you Reception is more of a Pool/Blue tone.

Navy could look really sophisticated and unexpected with the fuschia!

i agree with fadedblue: navy could look quite pretty and elegant with fuschia!

I may be partial to fushia, navy, and ivory because they’re my wedding colors, but I agree with PP that it would be a great way to go. Navy is so classic. I picked it because I wanted a nice, dark shade to go with my favorite color (pink) and I felt like everyone I knew was using either chocolate or black and I wanted something just a little different. It is tough to find navy wedding things since most wedding stuff is in either black or chocolate, but I feel the results are well worth it. Then again, I’m probably just biased. 🙂
Also, I agree that steel gray/platinum is another classy and modern option.

Personally I think fushia and aqua can look really great together…very bright, summery and a real modern look….it’s the ivory that messes it up in my opinon. It’s not needed, and it turns it from looking modern to looking kind of blah. But if you really want to change the blue then I agree with navy….and don’t worry about it "not being fair" to him. Guys don’t care.

I think that your just stressing about it because you’ve been looking and thinking about it for so long. I think that it is going to look great (fushia and Aqua). I agree with BaghdadBride – you don’t need to mix the ivory if you want another color then go with the navy.

I vote for navy as well. That would be a beautiful combination!

I personally love that combo–Bright Sassy and summery! I think go with that first gut instinct! Since you have the dresses already play around with the shades of aqua– maybe add alittle green into the mix– IT will be wonderful!

Fuschia and aqua is a great combo! I’ve seen a few summer inspiration boards in those colors. I wouldn’t change it if I were you. Just make the fuschia the primary color and throw in some pool accents wherever you need a cooler color. I think white, soft pink, silver and pale green would be fine as accents, but ivory seems to be in a different category. Like others have said Navy and fuschia would be beautiful too, but for a summer soiree I think aqua is perfect!

I agree with others – you can have different components that are fuschia and aqua but tone it down in some other areas so it’s not super overwhelming – I think the colors will look great!
I found this inspiration board – not sure if these are the same colors you’re using exactly but I loooove this.

Fuschia and lime would be pretty, too!
I definitely recommend taking a look at http://snippetandink.blogspot.com/ for some different color combos involving fuschia. She posts a new inspiration board every day and the ideas are endless!

Personally, I love your original combo, too! I think they’re great colors, and as someone said, very bright and summer-y, but I don’t think overwhelming or clashing.
It reminded me of a wedding I saw early on in my magazine collection…and I finally found the mag and the online link. This bride used all ranges of pink paired with the aqua, and I think it’s a stunning combination.
Good luck! And don’t fret! I think it will be lovely!

Thanks everyone!… Maybe I just thought about it too long or something. I’ll possibly change the ivory to a dark silver or platnium… IDK. Thanks again!!!
