I think it is fine to have TWO base colors. Imo, I think it looks best if the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are one base color and the tablecloths are another. If they are the same the girls can look like they are a part of the tablecloth during dinner. My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses were navy with lime sashes and champagne pashminas; flowers where cream/white (more in mine), varying shades of pink (more in the BMs), and a few lime lime green all tied with champagne ribbons; tablecloths were champagne with white candles and cream roses. My dress was blush so the bringing in the pinks looked just fine. You can use several colors you just have to watch the amounts you use them in.

Take a few deep breathes, clear your mind, then close your eyes and picture standing up in church and being at the reception, what are the first colors you see and what are they on? Write it down so you don’t forget. You can go to Walmart/Lowes/Home Depot and pick up paint color papers (get several of each color) and you can cut some of them up in different sizes to see “how much” of each you like in a palette. Good luck!!

Hey, its your wedding, you can have/use as many or as few colors as you want! We’re using navy blue too, but with ivory and white accents as well as hints of red and green (think nautical theme meets beach theme meets nature theme…).

 

here are some collages I found mostly on weddingistas.com blog. The two fabric swatches were found…somewhere. i can’t remember! These are things I like to keep for inspiration!
