OK I need some help! My fiance and I initially decided on green and pink as our early April color scheme as it seemed to fit into the season. However, as we have gone on making decisions on bridesmaids dresses, flowers, etc, I find myself trying not to hate the color scheme. I have never been a big pink lover, but my fiance found a gray suit w/ a pink tie that he loves and looks good in. So, I started looking at a champagne and pink color scheme instead which I like much more. It feels more elegant and sophisticated to me. Nothing major has been decided that we can’t go back on, except his suit. Would a gray suit clash horribly w/ champagne or light brown bridesmaids dresses?

I don’t think so! It sounds to me like it would look elegant. Champagne and Grey complement each other b/c they are more netural colors.
Grey would clash big time with brown though and for a spring wedding you don’t really want brown.
If you don’t want much pink, use it mostly in the flowers and leave it out else where. Use it more as an accent color since it’s a part of the suite.

@yearns4god: Thanks! I definitely agree about the brown…I was thinking something along the lines of Alfred Angelo cafe or champagne colored dresses. Perhaps if the groomsmen had champagene colored ties w/ pink boutonnieres it would help to make it look more cohesive.

Yes that actually sounds good! See you had it in you! You just needed some encouragement!
What alfred dress are you looking at?? I probably know it! LOL I LOVE LOVE LOVE Alfred Angelo, I’m using him for my girls and my dress actually! Note that some dresses are being discontinued, so you might want to make sure about them first w/the store. And you can do a two toned look on dresses to incorporate two colors that you want to use.

My sister in law did a muted pink color and a sage green – it was really pretty and classy.
The bridesmaids had the muted pink, the groomsmen had the sage green ( black tuxes) she had big branch like centerpieces with pink water and a sage ribbon around it, and everything was dripping in crystals…. pink and ivory roses…. All of the bridesmaid shoes were champagn colored and the ribbon on their boquets……. I cant remember anything else — it was super cute! I am not a hot pink person for weddings- seems a little too girly but maybe a lighter pink or a peachy pink would be ok!

The best way to tell which colors will or wont compliment each other is to actually get color swatches or paint chips and put them together. Sometimes you xpect certain colors to clash but then they dont. Grey is neutral color and doesnt really clash with anything. I have seen grey an brown put together on ties, purses and shoes, so I dont agree that those two colors clash.

It depends on the shades. If you were doing a hunter green and pink/mauve, it would look like the 80s’.

My opinion is the girls in a super light silvery grey dress with pale pink trim or accents.Look at the white roses with light pink edges on them for their boquets.Chanpagne and light pink would be stunning. Is it the tie your fiance likes or the suit?Show him the champagne tux with a pink tie. He may not know he likes it until he sees it. (Some people need help with vision.)Tan and pink are nice too.I know your not a fan of pink but the guys get left out of soooo much of the wedding plans that maybe this could be a compromise you could do for him so he feels this is his day too!Good luck and Happy Wedding Day!
