I would try to ask him what colors he does like, and see if you can go from there. Also, talk about how you will use the colors, as he may not want to wear a pink vest but be ok with a pink butannaire (sp). You can keep all the clothing in darker more subdued tones and use the flowers or decor to bring in pops of lighter color. 

So maybe dark burgandy, pink and black? That might be ok for both of you. The BMs could have burgandy dresses, Groomsmen burgandy vests & ties, and use pink flowers (with some other colors for accents, this is a starting place of course) and a combo of burgandy & pink decor. 

Maybe purple, lavendar and black? 

Maybe start with asking him what colors he is ok wearing and start with that. Just keep looking up ideas and ask him to look some up too. Good luck, bee. You’ll figure it out!

I would suggest each of you pick a color you want that compliments each other, since it’s both of your wedding! I see he likes teal and you like red. How about a red a teal wedding OR a jewel toned wedding with purple, teal, red and maybe one other color?

Here are some pinterest links

Or like this but with the teal being darker and richer

Navy goes with just about everything (like just about any of the pastel colours you were describing).  That could be your base dark colour to keep it from being too light.

Why not purple and red? We had “radiant orchid” and red and I’m still obsessed with it. We had so many compliments and everyone was surprised. You get red, he gets purple!

We are doing charcoal/black/white with gold and pink accents. The only colours he would agree to were black and charcoal so the bridesmaids are wearing charcoal, groomsmen in black,  black tablecloths, white chairs, gold candles, pink flowers, pink shoes, lots of sparkle and glitter
