Does the color flowers for the pews have to match the flowers in the bouquet?
Do the petals on the tables have to match the colors of everything else?
What is your take on this? As long as it flows well together can things be slightly different?
example: my flowers for pews are burgundy/dark fuschia… While my bouquets are mostly fuschia with plum…

Everything does not have to be matchy matchy. It does give a cohesive look if there is some “flow” or carryover of the color scheme.
Your flowers are all in the same color family, so no problem there.
I don’t know what you meant by “portals” so can’t comment about that.

No. Honestly, having everything perfectly matched is boring and looks kind of dated. Some variation adds dimension and visual interest and looks more natural.

- Wedding: June 2013 - Upstate NY
@mrssrm: +1 EVERYTHING matching, especially when they’re bold, trendy colors, I think can take away from the wedding overall.

I think everything matching can look like you hosed your venue down with 1 color, and that is boring too! Pick a few colors & use them, rather than just 1 color! 🙂

My family swears up and down that the colors should be throughout… But I was just at a wedding that had purple and lime green and everything was those colors!!! It looked like a kids birthday party :/

I prefer flow over matchy-matchy.
For me, I know I wanted to use succulents in my boquet and make terrariums for table centerpieces. So I found a picture of some assorted succulents and grabbed the colors I liked. Now my “colors” will be a mix of plum, a slightly paler and greener mint green, pale navy, pale coral and a light charcoal grey. So my boquet will not match my BMs, and theirs won’t match the centerpieces, but all of the colors go together (because they appear in nature together, otherwise I’m terrible at determining what things “go” together).
ETA: Here is my favorite website for choosing colors that go together: http://design-seeds.com/

I don’t think it has to be matchy matchy as long as it looks good.

Not matchy-matchy as long as it’s not clashy-clashy. Coordinated-y? 😉

@peachbaby4008: nothing needs to be matchy matchy. Absolutely no one will notice.
