I’m looking for opinions and suggestions! Here are the colors I’m kind of into right now
I would replace the white with gold to use as an accent.
I really like the look of a lot of color. Unfortunately I’ve had way more pinterest fails than successes so I definately need your help.
My bridesmaids dresses are going to be purple (regency from DB).
I have white tablecloths. The idea in my head says to use the darker blue and darker pink as table overlays and use the lighter colors for napkins. I was going to use gold vases (painted wine bottles) for my centerpieces. I was going to do half of the tables one, and half the other. Here are my questions for you
1, Do you think the pink and blue makes it too baby shower? Would doing all of the guest tables in one and say the gift/guestbook/cake table in the other be a better idea?
2. What kind of material should I use for the overlays? The pictures of the satin ones online look, well super reflective. I’m not sure if that’s what they are like in real life? Is taffeta a better option?
2. What kind of flowers do you think would look good with the blue table/gold vase? I”m buying silk flowers for my tables so I have a lot of choices. Fiance requested not to put purple and blue together bc it makes him think of the Charlotte Hornets smh. I also have silver paint, so I could do blue table/silver vase.
I’m going to order like one of whatever I decide and do a mock up before I go all in and buy a million of them just to make sure it looks okay. I’m just a little nervous.

@partyplanner83: what kind of look/theme are you going for?
When I saw those colors I automatically thought Sweet 16.
If you are adament on those colors, maybe you can use the pink as your main color and use the aqua as an accent color
I like taffeta better than satin

I don’t really have a theme…I like rich fun bright colors, I’m not big on pastels unless its used as an accent.
this is another idea of colors. I guess you could say it’s peacockish, but I don’t really have use for the feathers. I just think that blue green purple is too dark for a wedding,
I wasn’t thinking sweet 16, but I know what you mean. Something is off about it for a wedding. I like blue, purple, pink I just need to make it work without it looking weird.
Purple is definately happening for the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. They agree (6 girls) I’m not messing with that.

Here are a couple of pallets with the colors you like maybe these will give you a bit of inspiration. I added the gold to it so you could see what bits of gold mixed in looks like
Here are a couple of table ideas that would match your theme and colors

I think I would do something like this around your centerpieces. Then add hot pink flowers. Is there a reason you are planning on silk flowers? What about doing hot pink phlox-They are tall, (Stem length is an average minimum of 15 inches.) heavily, heavenly perfumed flowers-unless you are worried about too much scent. According to Fiftyflowers,
(20 bunches or 200 stems for $209.99) they are available year round, and would look lovely in gold wine bottles. Are you having round or long tables? 🙂

How about NAVY with purple/fuschia? This blue, when paired with other bright colors, reminds me of nailpolish trios they sell to kids. I think the navy would make it more grounded and let the bright flowers & other accents really stand out without being overwhelming:

@weddingbound: I really like the second and third photos. thank you.
@creativeplannertobee: I’m doing silk mostly for cost, and I can do them ahead of time. I like the idea of the branches. and the orchids
@MeiFrancis: I like navy, but its the color from my first wedding so I’m trying to stay away from it.
Thank you all for your help.
