That strikes me as a lot!  You have the linens.  You have half of the centerpieces.  You have some pretty sophisticated decor going on, like draping the walls in satin and a lounge.  So, it sounds like you need ideas for the other half of the centerpieces (maybe something white to match the lounge?).   What else needs decor?

I feel your pain.  My wedding is October 10th.  To me it sounds like you have all the BIG things figured out, which are the most important (centerpieces, furniture, linens). Do you have a wedding coordinator or day of event planner helping you at all?  The main coordinator at my venue (she’s not a paid wedding designer) has been a great help telling me what would look good/not so good, etc. All the colors you mentioned seem like they are complimentry, deep rich colors.  

What else is it that you need to decide on??  napkin colors? other florals?

Well I just took our colors and worked around that and what I had seen elsewhere. So, our linens are ivory with brown runners, with green and yellow centerpieces and candles around them. That is the main reception decor. There will also be large hurricanes filled with lemons and limes around the reception space.

Just start picking what you like and it will all start coming together.  I had to make a list and it helped to start crossing things off.  It was completely overwhelming for me to look at the big picture – but once I had specific tasks – it seems like I was getting a lot more done!
