I think peach and cranberry would lovely, but you could also try shades of purple from lavender to deep plum, turquoise, shades of green other than grass, Tiffany blue, coral, maybe even yellow.

Peach and cranberry would look good. Blue and brown is really popular right now too.

 

Go here and it should show you a bunch of boards with brown and other colors in the themes. Maybe you can get an idea from it.

our colors were green, brown and gold.  I love every color with brown though…and if you said you already had a lot of green at the venue, you should go for more plum colors in my opinion.  sometimes, if the cranberry is too red, the red and green may look festive, and in photos the colors can come out a little off and it might look red as well.  but purples would look fantastic, as well as peach/orange shades….and if you use peach you can go with rust/copper/gold colors which I also love!  But they also look good with purples!

I think peach and cranberry would look great!

Shades of green work really well, too. I’m using a lot of bronze (which is pretty much brown ) and emerald green and I’m loving it!

I think the pink colours would be lovely! With brown and green I think you really need another color that will pop.

I agree that shades of purple would work as well. I personally would not go with yellow or blue as the additional colour.

Honestly, because you’re colors are so neutral, you could pair them with just about any color you want.  All of the above suggestions sound great and would work, but it’s probably not narrowing it down enough for you. I suggest you find a panetone color pallette to pair up your colors and see what they look like in person. Find a swatch, or paint chips in your main colors, and then pair it up with other colors to see how you feel about them.  You’d be surprised at the colors that actually look good and compliment one another once you see them in person.

Our wedding colors were Brown, Green (the green color of the weddingbee logo) and Purple. It looked gorgeous if I do say so myself.  😉
