Short engagement due to a family member health issue. WEdding about finalized (in a month). But seems that theres no consistent color scheme: Bridemaids dress is coral, groomsmen is gray, flowers are circus roses with orange/white and invitations were red, coral sashes for chairs inside, yellow for the ceremony. I wanted fun colors but this seems too much! Help! how do i make it all match. At this pt the decor is the one thing that can be changed, maybe adapt flowers a bit…?

I think red/coral/yellow/gray can work together perfectly well, as long as you try to make maybe two of those dominant and the other two sort of more highlights or accents than anything… Changing the flowers to make sure they’re either more coral or more yellow could help, but ultimate it’s hard to say without seeing. For your centerpieces, you could do something in coral/grey and then an accent color like yellow to tie it all together more.
I don’t know though, over here weddings usually don’t have a theme color or a color scheme per se, aside from the fact the couple’s favorite colors tend to be more represented than any other colors. I’ve never had an issue with it, and I was actually completely surprised that wedding colors is such a Thing in the US, though now it does make sense to me.
Personally, we (me and fiance) have decided to go with at least four colors, because we want it to look fun. Ours are (at the moment) orange, green, yellow, and white, to make it sort of a more wedding-y version of a carnival color scheme, but that might still change.

@saratep: Coral orange and yellow will look lovely together becasue they are an analagous colour scheme (way more fun than monochrmatic but still really harmonious). Grey as a neutral is really current too, and looks nice with all your colours. Can I reassure you with some amazing colour inspitation boards from the perfect palette?
See? You do have a colour scheme and a beautiful one at that.
I wouldn’t personally try and incorporate the red as it might be too much, but wouldn’t worry about the invitations either. It’s not like people are going to be holding them in all the pictures right?
If you want things to look really coordinated you could add a yellow flower to your bouquets (I thought of calla lilies or billy buttons or freesias, each givea a completely differnt feel so it depends on your personal style) and add a little coral to your ceremony decor and a little yellow to your reception.
Hope that helped!

It sounds like coral is your main color! Grey will be lovely next to coral. I think coral with grey and yellow accents sound great.. I’d try to keep red away though.. It’ll just be too much
