Hmmm..

To me, the color of the church wouldn’t really dictate the scheme of my bridal party.  I think anything that you choose will work out just fine.  I actually like the red carpet.  It adds a lot more drama!!

What were you originally thinking of using?

OMG that’s a gorgeous bouquet!  What will the bm’s be wearing?  Green or purple?

I just noticed your wedding date.  If you’re looking for a wintery, kind of a holiday look, then the red carpet would fit in quite perfectly. 

 

Here is just a color palate look with red,green,and purple.  I know red probably isn’t in your initial palate, but at least it will give you a good idea if all of them together will compliment each other, which I think they do

I grew up in a church with this color carpet! πŸ™‚  Creams, dark blues, even some shades of purple might work.  Go to a home store (like Lowe’s), get a bunch of paint chips and try a few to see what it looks like with different colors.  I’d stay away from greens–might look Christmas-y (unless you want it to).

Cobalt and Gray (or gunmetal) are a great pick or for a brighter blue possibly a marine (I think that’s a DB Bridesmaid or Best Man dress color option) or a sapphire? Definitely stay away from green!

The carpet in my church is red as well.  I never even really thought about my wedding colours matching it.  My bridemaid will be wearing berry and same with the groom and groomsmen’s ties.  I will have some kissing balls on some of the pews that will mostly be a fushia/berry colour with some green foilage mixed in.  My reception will be where the colours really tie in.

That is about the same color as the carpet in my church and the fabric on all the pews. I’m not decorating the church, since it is beautiful already, so the only considerations were dress colors and flowers. I’m going with teal-ish Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and mainly ivory flowers. The mothers are wearing a deep purple and navy. The only thing you need to be careful about is if you pick red dresses.

My church has the same colour of carpet! lol.We are doing browns. I didn’t really take it into consideration a whole lot when picking but I definatly didn’t want it to clash.

I don’t think your original idea would look bad at all. I love the purple and green. We are doing lime green and white for flowers.
