hi! My wedding is June 3rd 2018 at a castle (outside is grey stone and the ballroom has dark hardwood floor and light walls). I’m having a hard time picking colors because I really don’t use a lot of color in my home or clothing. I tend to gravitate towards neutrals like white, grey, black, creams. Any suggestions on floral color scheme and bridesmaid dresses? I was originally thinking all white and cream color flowers but I think the room is too much of a blank canvas and I want the floral decorations to really add something. For bridesmaid dresses I want something that isn’t too light of a color since my bridesmaids are pale and I don’t want to wash them out. Any suggestions or pictures would be so helpful!!!!

I think a dark emerald green could look really nice with the neutrals (and also on fair skin), and you can use lots of greenery with your florals (if you like that style).

My husband and I also tend to gravitate towards neutrals. He and I wore grey, bridesmaids wore ivory, groomsmen wore black, and I told our florist that the flowers really would be the only thing bringing color and just kind of let her do her thing. 🙂

A good match for white and ivory are jewel tones – emerald green, deep sapphire blue, crimson, or amethyst purple. Actually, gold would be a good color, too. If you selected white or ivory, a jewel tone, and gold, that would look so royal! It would match the castle theme very well.

OMG, STOP IT! This is one of the most beautiful weddings – and to think the only color was your flowers?!
Do you have pictures or a link to your venue? That could help drum up some color scheme ideas. Neutral colored weddings are pretty hot right now (not sure if that matters to you, or not). There are a lot of great ideas on Pinterest.

Burgundy would be lovely!

I really like the emerald green color that was posted the one after your first post.
I was married June 2016 and I choose light pink as bridesmaid colors. My 2 BM’s were super pale but I still think they looked gorgeous- here’s a pic (sorry, I didn’t want to give pics with their faces straight forward since i don’t have permissions:-) ):
