Honestly to me this sounds like a primary color nightmare! Can you do a rich red with a navy blue and just forget about the yellow? It makes it seem like you’re going Americana with a twist…and to in my opinion that’s best left for July 4th.

However, you could prove me wrong and pull off a fabulously gorgeous wedding.

Best of luck!

I don’t think I’m a fan of all 3 colors together either… I think Blue & Yellow would be fab together! Deep dark blue or a light blue would look great with the yellow. Or… you could do monochromatic & do just 1 or 2 colors in all different shades. Let us know what you decide!

I’m also not really a fan of all three together… that’d be tough to pull off, haha!  But I think the blue and the yellow would be best together – I’m not much of a red person either for this kind of t hing.  Maybe pick a couple shades of blue that you love and then throw in touches of yellow?

I think blue and yellow would definitely be gorgeous, especially after seeing some pictures of blue and yellow weddings, but the red and light blue is really trendy.

Good luck planning! I’m anxious to hear what you guys decide!

I think you should make a poll! I love the combination of blue & yellow! I think all 3 will be very busy & look like an elementary school classroom. MsHymanRoth you’ve been planning a very lavish wedding & I don’t think those colors would go with your overall vision. 

If I were you I would go with a deep blue & yellow because 1. you don’t like red and 2. it has a very regal feel to it. Perfect for your venue & previous ideas!

Btw, did you ever decide on which chairs to use? lol

I think it could be fine…just be careful or it will be a Supeman themed wedding lol..

Pick 2 colors (blue and yellow) or Blue and red and just use a tiny ‘hint of the 3rd color…

I think that it could work.  You could do a modern art type of feel, because a lot of modern art incorporates really bright primary colors.

 I’m thinking Van Gogh’s Starry Night:

Piet Mondrian’s Composition with Red, Yellow and Blue:

Red Night Sky:

 I think that if I did it I would put black and white as the base colors, and put accents of red, yellow, and blue.  If he is looking for a mature look to the wedding, I think that those colors could really accomplish that.  

 

Or to make it softer, I could soften the colors.  They don’t have to be primary blue, red, and yellow. I attached an inspiration board.  I think it would be super pretty and unique to have those colors.  But I’m of the belief that you can make any group of colors work together.

I personally love those colors together. Then again, I love the country of Romania, and those are their colors. 🙂 But seriously, my kitchen is a combo of these colors. We are doing garnet/gold but i thought of adding blue!
