So I’ve had my venue and my colors picked out for a while. The ceremony and reception will be at a country club with the ceremony outside (fingers crossed it doesn’t rain!) and reception inside. And for the colors, I am thinking a bright cobalt blue and lime green and white as accents. Plus already got the bridemaids dresses in a cobalt blue so can’t change that! The first set of pictures shows kind of what i have in mind. Blue moreso for the fabrics (bm’s dresses, possibly table linens) and then the lime and white for the florals (with blue flowers thrown into my bouquet maybe).
But then recently i’ve come across some beautiful pictures of outdoor weddings with rose petals making an aisle and want to incorporate this into the outdoor ceremony. HOWEVER, I’m thinking this will only look good if the rose petals making the aisle are bright colors (pinks, peaches, oranges, etc). If I used my colors (blue or green) they wouldn’t pop against the grass. So my question is: Could I do bright colored aisle petals for the outdoor ceremony and that be the only time i use those colors? Or should I try incorporating these colors into the rest of the wedding (i.e. in floral centerpieces add some bright colors, etc). Hope I make sense!! I don’t know what to do!
Oh and the pics with the aisle petals is my venue! I just wanna take all their colors now! So pretty, haha!

I would tie them in with the rest of the florals.

I’m a fan of the saying, “it’s your wedding, do what you want to do”
I do think if you go with a “quantity” of rose petals in the white’s, lime’s, etc., then you could achieve the same look you are looking for. Roses are one of the main theme’s in my daughters wedding so I understand completely.
Good luck! Also nice to have another Louisville gal on the bee!

I’d say the pick/peaches go with blue and green, and practically any color goes with white, so your fabrics and what not could be blues and greens like you intended, and you floral could be the pinks and such, with some blue, and obviously green, mixed in. Sounds pretty to me. And if you decide to go with your original three colors, blue and white petals would be pretty too.

I think that if you just wanted to add some pop to your aisle, you could just add the peach colored petals with the cobalt blue…that way it’s not too overwhelming with the pastel colors and you can get away with just accenting your aisle. You wouldn’t have to add it to your reception…I wouldn’t add too many light colors to the mix of your aisle, I would stick with the blue green white and throw in the peach for some pop. If you didn’t want to stray away from your true vision then you doing it this way will give you the pop without having to alter anything.

I would use a mixture of green, lt. blue, white and orange petals. The orange would pop against the cobalt blue. But you can do whatever you want to do…because there are no rules. YEAH!!!

My choice would be to stick with your theme colors.
You could use white petals. They will pop against the grass and repeat the white in the chairs at the venue.
If you did a heavy base layer of white, you could scatter the blue and green petals on top.
You could also use a white aisle runner and use your blue and green petals to line the edges like this:
or scatter colored petals on the runner itself:
