My colors are Ivory and Espresso brown and I am having my flowers in "fall" colors (oranges, reds, yellows, purples) to pop against the Ivory/Brown.  What about Cream and dark brown with the pinks/peaches at accent colors?

Have you checked  out the inspiration boards on Snippet and Ink? http://snippetandink.blogspot.com/

 They are absolutely helpful with picking out color palettes and can help you visualize your event. Good luck!

We are going with espresso brown and ivory as well. I hear steel gray is the new brown, but brown works better with our venue so that’s why we went with it. Totally agree with MsPopcorn – it’s an elegant color combo!

I think dark browns are elegant. But agree with pp- if I was at the beginning again I would be all over the steel gray and maybe a yellow accent.  Looks very fresh and chic!

My wedding colors were champagne, cream, and chocolate brown, with  red accents.  I think it all came together very nicely.  Having the neutral colors with the red accents ended up being very pretty.

What colors does your venue have?  I have seen some pretty vintage ones with dusty rose colors mixed in, but I think some metallic accents & some bolder flowers would be beautiful!

We are going with dark brown & a celery/lime green plus some eggplant accents.

I recently went to look at the venue where my wedding reception is being held.  The Ballroom was set up with Brown Silk Tablecloths, cream napkins and pink/peach/ flowers.  IT WAS INCREDIBLE!
