Honestly I see no problem with keeping your current colors. If it helps go to the venue with the colors and put it up against there. Most of the pictures you have are neutrals. A few dark woods, but not overly done. I think blue and green and yellow would be fine there. But that is just my personal opinion.

I think the colors you have picked could work. The only one I question is blue, but I think yellow and green would look good.

Yellows will definitely work and greens too.   Actually, it’s hard to visualize anything without the colours directly next to it, but I think it would still work.  Which shades of greens and blues were you thinking of?  I think a sage/olive green would look amazing in there!

Cobalt blue, lemon yellow, and olive green I think would go well together. I think brighter colors would stand up agianst the darker ones. And they are still summery. Use yellow as the predominant color and the blue and green as accents.

Could you buy inexpensive sheer ivory panels to replace the venue’s curtains?  That may help you tie in your color scheme a bit more.

I think Storm’s idea of different shades would work very well. Your venue does look pretty neutral, and I guess the only way to know for sure is to visit it again with some of your colors and do a mock setup ,take pictures and see what you think.

I would stay with your original colors. The golds and brown in your venue are neutrals and the red in the furniture is a deep burgundy- most anything goes with that.

Have the wedding of your dreams.

@amidette:

The venue is pretty.

I think it is neutral enough that your colors will still work.

 

If you decorate the right way and with enough in your colors, it won’t matter.

 

Imagine if you were using a church with something other than all white inside or using a home.  Same thing.

I wouldn’t sweat it and would use the colors I love.
