Hey guys.. I’m driving myself nuts over color scheme. My venue has a neutral color palatte with sage green carpets and walls, as well as a lot of natural wood (in a light maple color). My shoes are fuchsia, and so are my bridesmaids dresses. I’m stuck after this because I need a third color, as I don’t want to gag over too much pink (plus, my shoes are a statement!), nor do I want to overdo the green since it’s already very much in use. I’m thinking about chair ribbons, centerpiece flowers, and stationary. Any ideas (and pics!) would be very much appreciated!
Also, I’m having a candy buffet (a must!) and I’m wondering- do I go with a buffet in my color scheme of three colors, or do I choose one of those colors, or do I go all out with every color in the rainbow? lol

You could go with a very pale pink, like an ice pink colour, or something like a chocolate colour might look quite nice!

Here’s some more inspiration for you:
I think even something in the blue family could work.

You could go a very pale, almost neutral green. That way, you tie in with the scheme of the venue, but you don’t lose the impact of the fuschia.
Or a darker, richer pink? I’m thinking of the sorts of pale greens or dark pinks here: (actually the greens not quite so much, because they’re not really sagey, but still nice and understated)
I love the top two rows of colours here too. I think bright colours go so nicely with really lovely subdued neutrals.

I was thinking maybe a champagne color or a very pale peach? Also, with the candy buffet I think that 2 colors looks really good. Maybe whatever 2 colors you can find the most candy in!

I think adding in a neutral would look great in your venue. I agree with another bee who suggested adding in chocolate brown. That would compliment your colors nicely. what color are your tablecloths? Are you planning on renting/buying runners? I say go with pink flowers, adding in fuscia with your pale pink blooms. Pink Calla lilies and roses are beauitful. Have your bouquet pink while the BM’s are green, perhaps green cymbidium orchids or green hydranges. Tables, maybe a brown table cloth with green runner and pink centerpieces, matching your bouquet and green ribbons on chairs. Have your invitations, programs, escort cards ect in a chocolate brown as well as your cake. Have them add some pink and green flowers to your cake to tie it all in.
With your candy table I’d stick to just the colors of your wedding instead of the whole rainbow. It will just help to unify everything. Maybe pick just one or two colors to make it easy on yourself, pink and green perhaps.
If you don’t like the idea of a neutral orange wouldadd an extra fresh pop to the decor!! Like Ms. Figales’s last inspiration board.
