Actually red is a great accent color to black and white or black and ivory. I’m having a apple red with black and white damask wedding here are pics of my flower girl basket and ring pillow I just made earlier this week.

depends on the season & if you want to match the season/holiday. it depends on your preference too. I like pinks, yellows, blues, purple-almost any color. I would go with a pop of color-not champagne-personally

My wedding is July 17 2010. There really isnt a theme…although the reception has polka dots ( seat covers, candy buffet, etc) I am looking for one color to make things pop but still look chich for the ceremony and fun at the reception. The invitations I have designed have a sating ribbon around them and Im trying to choose one main accent color for that purpose alone as well as everything else….I LOVE red, which is what we were originally using until we went to the florist and I thought things looked wintery….

Our attendants wore black (tuxes and dresses) and the ties we picked out for the guys were each a different color. Then we coordinated the bridesmaids’ bouquet ribbons to match their opposite guy’s tie. It looked really neat when they walked up the aisle together. We died the reception in the same colors and got a lot of compliments. I do NOT think that three is the limit when it comes to wedding colors!

What about a coral – it’s a bit more pinky so it wouldn’t remind you of Christmas so much, but you can get lovely deep corals just a couple shades pinker than your normal red 🙂

My venue is at a country club and it has sort of a rustic style to it. Im trying to make things as cohesive as possible with the colors, black and ivory as well as the polka dots.

We are doing black and ivory also. Our accent color is eggplant/dark purple.

I am having black and white with a really like green sage color as the accent. Looks very pretty- very natural (our wedding is at a vineyard so this worked well!).
