I need help! Im trying to choose wedding colors and a reception look I still have not decided. The wedding is in May and everyones pretty frusterated with my decision making. I originally wanted kind of an old hollywood look but its only going to be about 50 people and its an afternoon wedding at a resort (Westin Kierland in Scottsdale)…so there will be rolling green golf course through the windows. The room it’self is sort of a soft yellow/amberish color with large windows open to the greens. The interior of the room is pretty blah so I thought maybe large dark manzanita branches in centerpieces maybe to bring the dull room to life. Or maybe not, any tips guys?? I’m thinking Ivory and black or Ivory for the linens and this greyish purple for the bridesmaid dresses or black for bridesmaid dresses… PLEASE give me some input. Heres some pics.
Bridesmaid dress: In black or wisteria (It’s Alexia Designs from spring 2012) Wisteria is a purplish grey…kind of eyore-ish
This is the blah room I’m working with:

Based on your pictures your colors are brown, pink, and green. You’re venue is basicly a clean slate so pretty much anything goes…
With your photos in mind:
I would do brown bridesmaid dresses, with pink and white flowers with greenery in them.
You could have sandy colored table covers, with brown colored napkins. Moss and manzanita centerpieces with the pink and white flowers.

Here is what I would do based on your pics. I would do a soft grey-ish or ivory table linen with that eyore-ish colour bridesmaid dress. I would have the bridesmaids carry a bouquet with purples and pinks. I would do your centrepieces with the green leaves, pink and purple and ivory flowers like in your photos. They would also look nice with some dark branches coming out.

The pictures I posted are just for style sake it wouldnt nessasarily need to be any of those colors I like the branches which Ive seen people keep them natural or spray black or light and the florals coould be any color. I like the idea of mosses and amaryanthus vines hanging down. Thanks guys for the ideas…keep em’ coming 🙂

OK I found my theme! Ivory, Black and Gold. Im so happy with my choice now that its finally coming together. Here are some pics of some of the things I got 🙂
This is the linen style I’m choosing:
I bought gold charger plates like these below (beaded)
I got a 4 ft tall gold bird cage for the cards. I’m going to put black ribbon on it and fill with green moss at the bottom
Lastly centerpieces: I have huge tall wooden candlesticks 9 (in staggering sizes) in black. Im going to put huge pomanders on top made with Ivory rose, hydrangeas in ivory and blush and green berries
Similar style but not the same flowers, etc:
