Our wedding is next September 21st, 2012, and my fiance and I are having a heck of a time deciding our colors. We love Black and Charcoal grey colors, think it’s very classy. However, others have expressed to us that it appears very gloomy. Suggestions have been given to us for colors such as Burgandy. We really want Black and Champagne in the palet for sure, with bold rich fall colors in the flowers (deep, oranges, marroons, plums, golden yellows) and arrangements.
My question is to my fellow brides, is Black, Charcoal, and champagne a good combo?? Do I need something bringther. Or will the flowers give me the pop of color I’m seeking. My Fiance and I like classic, sophisticated, elegance. We do not like Pink. Green is not a color for us. He does not like purple. And avoiding the Oranges. Deep blue is not out of the question….but very very last resort.
Our Venue is at a Lodge. Inside is floor to ceiling, tall catherdral wooden ceilings, and flooring. Sorry so long, we’re just really stuck on the colors!!!
Thanks for your help!

What about charcoal, marigold and champagne? I think you need something with a little pop of color but I think grey looks really classy and modern so def stick with that!

@mari328: I think that looks amazing. I tthink this sort of black tie affair would be too gloomy at all just chic.
Imagining the lodge seems like it would be the perfect backdrop to do it without another pop of a bright color you don’t really like.

These were my sister’s colours! Black (bridesmaids wore black with white pearls), her invitations were black, charcoal, and champagne (charcoal envelope).
White flowers ( the white will be a different shade from your dress ). I think the colours you mentioned for your flowers would be perfect.
Favours were silver boxes, black ribbon. Centerpieces were white flowers in glass vases.
The colour will come from your guests clothes! and the food on the plates (seriously) and the venue will also be more colourful than you think (warm wood tones). You’ll have sparkle from the light reflecting on the wine glasses, silverware, candles, crystals (if you are doing them).
She was worried about choosing black and grey but the wedding was absolutely gorgeous.

I am in a wedding soon, the colours are black, charcoal grey and burnt orange. They all look fab together. The boys are in black suits, with the orange ties, and the bm’s are in charcoal grey dress’s with orange flowers! 🙂

One thing I would recommend is to go on both Pinterest, and the website, http://www.theperfectpalette.com/
On Pinterest, just start pinning wedding images that appeal to you. After a while, you may just see your wedding vision materialize.
The Perfect Palette has hundreds of palette image boards. When you see one that makes your heart go ZING, you’ll know that is the one that is meant for your wedding.
