It’s August…throw a bit of orange or yellow into the mix! So cheerful!

Try The Perfect Palette http://www.theperfectpalette.com/  it allows you to choose a color you already like and gives suggestions to pair with it.

Maybe start with colors that you and your bridesmaids look good in.  Personally, I like navy (to tie in the river) and bright green but it’s not exactly a POP color.  Tangerine is also nice!

What color are the Bridesmaid or Best Man dreses?

Maybe use coral/peach/ivory for centerpieces? I love coral 🙂

How about a bright blue?  Still ties in the river like @MrsLongoToBe suggested but much brighter.  Also most girls look good in blue if the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses haven’t been bought yet (although you’d better get a move on!).

Here is a gorgeous cake that I was just looking at that would be perfect for bright blue, green, and ivory!

Green is a good base color because so many colors look great with it! It depends on what kind of style you are going for. Are you going to fun, classic, rustic? I like pink and green, purple and green or orange and green. Good luck!

I reallllly like- Ivory, green, coral, and yellow together. Centerpieces with flowers in these tones:

with lemon slices in the vases!

What kind of green? Is it more a lime green or a forest green?

I would say orange with the dark green and aqua with the lime.

I’m getting married by a river, too.  I picked sage green (some lighter, some darker), light blue, and lots of river rocks everywhere, so some grey.  I wanted it soft and natural.

A saturated blue (royal or navy) and/or a saturated dark pink. If everything is going to be super green, you want to make sure that your details and your girls are standing out against the background!
