I planned our wedding in 6 months, due to a late decision to switch from a destination wedding to one in my hometown.  The only reason plannign takes longer is nailing down venue avails, and sounds like you’ve done that.  So it’s just busy work from here on out.

NO, you don’t have to specifically have to find a reception site that incorporates your colors.  It’s hard enough trying to find a site that you like, let alone find one with complimentary colors.

Most guests will not be looking to see if your centerpieces match the carpet or drapes.  So coordiante all the elements of your reception to bring out your wedding colors and it’ll be great.

I actually picked out my wedding colors because of my venue!  But that is just because my venue has very strong colors and I love them.

I’d recommend getting a few flowers to try out and practice making bouts and bouquets with — it’ll make the day-of go alot smoother and more fun! You picked great flowers to make hand-tied bouquets and bouts out of. One thing I will say is that it makes things really easy when you’re working with roses to get one of these: http://www.flowersandsupplies.com/Flexible-Flower-Stripper-_p_34-63.html. It takes the thorns off really easily and saves your hands!

Oh, and chocolate brown is a color that goes with everything. You can even try using leucodendron leaves (they have a brownish tinge) as your greens in your flowers. Good luck!
