hmmm… I think the old stones outside the church are amazing and your blush dresses with mint accents would look great outside on the grass but with the red carpet and the dark wood, I’m not a fan of them on the inside.

I LOVE champagne as a bridesmaid dress and then you could do blush flowers if you wanted to keep the tone involved but for me, I would go champagne and white flowers. 

The champagne on the girls and maybe the ties of the guys would look timeless and elegant in this church setting and I’m not sure about your other decor you have planned for the church but I would minimize the blush/mint in the church and save them more for the reception space.

…I might be parital because gold/champagne was one of my colors in my wedding but SERIOUSLY its an amazingly elegant color that I feel looks amazing for weddings.

OMG!!! I have the same exact problem… The church is super red and my colors are coral and chocolate brown! I just realized this and I’m so afraid it will clash, I dont want an outdoors wedding, and I really dont have a backup venue. I would love some suggestions.Undecided

I say ignore the color of the carpet and have the color palette you love.

If you are concerned about a color clash in your pics, use an aisle runner.

Blush and mint wouldn’t be the colors that I’d choose for a red carpet. But here are some other thoughts:

The vast majority of the pictures of our actual ceremony are pretty tight on me and my husband. We’ve got bridesmaids and groomspeople in the background, but the ceremony shots are overwhelmingly us. A white/ivory gown and a dark suit shouldn’t clash with the red carpet too much.

If you want the majority of your group shots to be inside, across the front of the church, I MIGHT consider a gold or a champagne dress OR an aisle runner, as PP said. However, if you plan to do group shots outside instead of or in addition to the inside ones, I think the blush would be just fine.

You could also ask your photographer if he/she thinks it’ll be an issue. The nice thing is that the blush looks great with the ivory/brown on the walls! I could see picture arrangements that put as much space between the pink and the red as possible.

To be completely honest — the most important thing to me was that the dress color looked good on my bridesmaids and on me (since they were near me all of the time!). If you love blush and everyone else looks good in it, I think the aisle runner will be a minor thing.
