What about a vintage dark blue. Like, distressed navy, with a lot of ivory worked in

what a beautiful venue.  any colour would look good there.  when i think of a turn of the century vintage theme, i envision muted colours; soft pinks, pale sage greens, dusty blues and greys.  20’s/30’s vintage maybe deeper, richer colours; teals, reds, fuschias.  whatever colours you choose, i am sure it will be lovely.  have fun planning.

I cosign the advice of mypinkshoes. Work with pinks, greens, and blues to balance out the yellow wood that you have going on there. You’d be fine in the muted pastels for a really antique theme, the richer jewel tone colors for a twenties/thirties theme, and even if you chuck the vintage feel and go for modern brights, that palette will still look gorgeous. I LOVE your venue!

@misschickpea:  Call me crazy, but I like all of those dresses together! I’m not one for matchy-matchy, though. I’m actually wearing a chiffon J. Crew gown in the dusty shale color to my sister’s upcoming wedding. It’s a GORGEOUS color in person. But I’m totally partial to the grey, too. You could have your maids wear grey but give them (or let them pick out) accessories in different colors from your color scheme, maybe to match your bouquet for some cohesiveness if that’s what you like.

@misschickpea:  I think it’s a great idea to utilize more than two colors for your scheme. It gives you SO much more flexibility. As long as you stay with the same “feel” for everything, the colors aren’t going to matter so much. I mean, maybe stay away from the neon pink if you’re going for rustic, but other than that… you wedding is your oyster. 🙂

With that venue I think you could really go with any color palette! If you’re leaning more to berry-tinted colors, I think the wine colored dress would be perfect.

Such gorgeous inspiration photos. Good luck!!

@misschickpea:  here’s a little tip that most brides don’t think of…pick the bm colours that you look best in.  i am sure that there are colours that you wear that you feel great in and look great in.  you will have that same ‘glow’ in your wedding pictures by just having those colours around you.  not to mention, your wedding makeup is going to have to coordinate with your chosen colours so as not to clash with your theme.  i picked fuschia because i know bright pinks and fuschias look great on me.  it’s not necessarily my ‘favourite’ colour but i know it’s my best colour for clothing and makeup and will bring out the best in me in my wedding pics.
